Circle8 turnover breaks through one billion euro mark


Amsterdam, March 28, 2024 - International HR Tech service provider Circle8 grew significantly last year. All five of the European companies in Circle8 grew organically, increasing the 2023 turnover more than 20 per cent to 1.01 billion euros.


Circle8, FixedToday (both in the Netherlands and Belgium), Seven Stars (Netherlands), Königstein (Germany) and Swisslinx (Switzerland) enjoyed strong demand from their existing portfolio of clients. The various Circle8 companies also won many new clients. More than 12,000 professionals now work for these clients through the companies. IT continues to be a growing market for the company, whilst it has also experienced strong growth in tech and finance.

Wide range of solutions

The growth in turnover comes from all the services offered by the group companies internationally, such as recruitment/brokerage, contracting, search and selection, payrolling, managed service provision (MSP), staffing, consultancy, and recruitment process outsourcing (RPO). “The results exceed expectations. Offering a wide range of HR Tech solutions for our clients in the IT, tech and finance sectors works and enables strong growth,” says Ineke Kooistra, Circle8’s CEO. “Our Total Talent Flow strategy has earned us the loyalty of more professionals and allowed us to deploy their talent on behalf of our clients.”
