Our mission

Nearly losing your marbles finding a fitting side job? We got you covered.

Studying, eating out, going out. This takes time and money. A side job is necessary, but difficult to combine. You are not available 24 hours a week, you do not want to wait a month for your salary. You want to work fast and carefree, have flexible scheduling and immediate access to the money you earned. We arrange that for you. We make sure that having a side job isn’t going to make you lose your marbles.

Let's introduce ourselves

Knikkers Uitzendwerk is a dynamic, ambitious and committed company. With a young team of enthusiastic (mostly) students we focus on the employment of students and young adults in the logistics sector. We find it important to take into account the wishes of both the employee and the employer. As far as we are concerned, everyone wins. We do all of this from our office in the center of student city Tilburg. Our office has been awarded with a BREEAM Excellence certificate, therefore it is one of the most sustainable office buildings in the Netherlands.

What do you find the biggest challenge in the work?

In my opinion the biggest challenge is trying to get diverse interests to converge. For example, the interests of employees are often at odds with the interests of clients. When this succeeds, it gives me a tremendous kick. One good example of this is the instant payment of the salary after a shift has been worked for the employees.

What are your hobbies?

In my spare time I like to cook. I really enjoy creating something and then eating it with friends or family. I also do boxing and I can regularly be found on my racing bike. I can really enjoy making bicycle trips through Europe with my friends.

What do you do in daily life?

In my free time you can see me sunbathing on the terrace or singing along at a concert. In addition, I am currently in my third and final year of the bachelor Human Resources. In this study I learn how to use personnel in the most effective and responsible way. Therefore it is extra nice that I can apply this in practice at Knikkers Uitzendwerk!

How do you see Knikkers Uitzendwerk?

I see Knikkers Uitzendwerk as a place where I can learn a lot. At the same time we are a young and enthusiastic team, so hard work and fun is well combined at the office!

What do you do enjoy in daily life?

I love sports, so after a day at work I like to hit the gym or go for a run. I also own a racing bike, but in all honesty I must confess that it has mainly seen the inside of my shed. I also love everything that has to do with dining. Both the food and the drinks.

What do you like about your job?

I really feel that we can make a difference. It is becoming increasingly expensive to build up a normal life. If you need flexibility because of a study or other commitments, it is hardly offered. We try to offer that flexibility. Apart from that, I work in a really nice team and I enjoy coming to the office every day.

What do you like about your work?

What I love about working at Knikkers Uitzendwerk is the target group. I am mainly in contact with peers, which makes it easier to reach them. This makes the work a lot more accessible, which makes it so much fun! Furthermore, the atmosphere at the office is very nice, which keeps you motivated.

What are your hobbies?

My hobbies are mainly visiting festivals/events and doing fun things with friends. I like to be surrounded by friends and my calender is filled with activities until the summer.

What do you enjoy in daily life?

I like to stay up to date with current events. I therefore enjoy reading news articles and analysis on market operations. I can lose myself in figuring out underlying dependencies. I get energy from organizing activities for friends, colleagues, family and other people. Besides these activities I'm a Willem season ticket holder and I passionately watch games of 'my' NFL team the Philadelphia Eagles.

What do you like about your job?

Facilitating a stable part-time job is very important for the financial stability of students. It is currently too easy to take out student loans. The consequences are downplayed. In addition, the policy on the weight of a study debt is constantly changing in view of financial products such as a mortgage. Being able to make a difference here motivates me every day. I'm enjoy the approachable and open atmosphere at the office every day.

What do you do in daily life?

When I'm not working at Knikkers, you can find me on a surfboard or at the field hockey field. I also study Communication and Information Sciences at the uni, which I find very interesting. I can use the knowledge from my study very well in my work for Knikkers. I am also a member of the student association Olof and live with my sorority, with whom I regularly enjoy a terrace or a party.

What do you find the biggest challenge in work?

The biggest challenge at Knikkers is that I sometimes forget to work, because there are such nice colleagues and employers in the office. Eventually everyone works really hard, after the necessary stories have been exchanged.

What do you do in daily life?

At the moment I'm mainly busy finishing my studies! However, every now and then you will see me at the many student parties that are organized in Tilburg. If that is not the case, I am probably at home reading a book or nosing around in a puzzle book, or I am busy outside on my racing bike, which has to be finished this year!

What do you like about your work?

I really enjoy empowering others to achieve their goals. Whether they are saving for that big trip or their first car, it's nice to be able to contribute. This gives me a lot of energy! Furthermore, the situations and conversations I encounter are different every day, because we work with so many different students/people. So me and my colleagues never get bored!

How do you see Knikkers Uitzendwerk?

Knikkers Uitzendwerk is a place where you can develop well. I've worked from back office to front office and that's what makes this job so cool. I am challenged by new issues every time and find it incredibly interesting to solve these to the best of my ability. Knikkers Uitzendwerk has a young and dynamic team where we alternate hard work with sociability and fun.

What are your hobbies?

My hobbies are field hockey and free time with friends. I have been playing field hockey since I was 7 years old at Oranje-Rood in Eindhoven, but from next year onwards I will be playing field hockey here in Tilburg. In my free time I like to chill with friends while enjoying a drink and a nice snack. The Burgundian lifestyle is right up my alley!

What are your hobbies?

Cooking is my passion, so I spend a lot of my spare time doing that. The dream is to turn my hobby into my work. If I'm not busy getting you to work or answering your questions in regards to your salary. Then I'm busy fine tuning the most diverse culinary dishes.

What do you find the biggest challenge at work?

The biggest challenge I face every working day is answering your questions in the most personal way possible. The most diverse questions come along and every time I try to put myself in your situation as well as I can. A few years ago I was in the same place as you. Thanks to that period I have developed an empathy for our employees. I know very well how annoying it can be when your question remains unanswered for a long time or is not answered to your satisfaction.

How do you see Knikkers Uitzendwerk?

I see Knikkers Uitzendwerk as a young and ambitious company with the goal of providing the most carefree work possible for students and other temporary workers.

What do you like about your job?

What I personally like about the job is the relaxed working atmosphere that exists in the office. We are all active students or former students, so drinking a cup of coffee with co-workers is almost part of the job. In addition, it is nice that, just like the students who are sent by Marbles, I can indicate my availability each week. Because of this, it fits perfectly into my not so structured student life.

What are you focusing on as an intern?

At the moment I am researching how recruitment can be carried out as efficiently as possible for Marbles. I do this by interviewing different students from, for example, student associations. Furthermore, I perform support tasks as they come along.

What do you do in daily life?

In daily life I am on the board of fraternity Kater van Olof. I also play field hockey at Shot and I am graduating for my study Commercial Economics AD. Furthermore, like all students I love a beer and a good party. Another activity is gaming and playing board games.
