Knikkers Uitzendwerk is more than just a temp agency. We are a bridge connecting driven individuals with diverse industries such as hospitality, festivals, catering, hospitality, production, order picking, and logistics. Our ambitious team, located in the heart of the student city of Tilburg, works diligently to find the perfect match between employees and employers throughout the Netherlands. Our sustainable BREEAM Excellence certified office emphasizes our commitment to a brighter future.
Knikkers consists of a young team and is growing rapidly. They work hard to keep both companies and workers happy so that everyone is happy.
I study business economics at Tilburg University. I also like doing extreme sports like motocross and skiing. I also enjoy going to festivals.
I really love doing things with girlfriends. Whether it's playing field hockey, a movie night on the couch, or just going to a party or festival, I love it all! I am also in the student union Olof, and live with my sorority, where I thoroughly enjoy my time there.
I choose for Knikkers Uitzendwerk because I am ready for a new challenge! Besides, I am studying Communication, so it fits in with my studies. And I only hear positive and pleasant stories about working at Knikkers, so I'm sure it will turn out positively!
The biggest challenge I find is to properly assess someone's personal situation and wishes. Everyone that works through us has different work wishes and preferences. It is up to us to take a good look at what someone would like and then match this with the right work.
I really enjoy doing things with friends and family and also like to keep myself busy with photography. I also like to party with my sorrority and go to festivals. I am also studying forensic psychology at uni, which I find really interesting and something I would like to do later on.
I see Knikkers Uitzendwerk as an organization where students can work without obligation and thus develop themselves in all kinds of areas. In addition, we are an enthusiastic team which creates a great atmosphere on the workfloor!
Besides my studies and busy student life here in Tilburg, I love drinking beers and going to festivals with my girlfriends! I can also regularly be found on the golf course.

Finance & Control
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.
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.

Strategic Human Resource Management (MSC)
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 final year of the master Strategic Human Resource Management. 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!
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!

MSC Strategic Management
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.
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.
Member Frontoffice | 'An upcoming high-flyer'
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.
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.

(Dutch) Law (graduated in 2014)
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.
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.

Communication- and Information Sciences
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.
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.
Member Frontoffice | 'Jack-of-all-trades'
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.
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.

MSC Strategic Management
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 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.

Because it provides a more transparent view of what you earn in total per hour. It doesn't just show your hourly wage but also all the additional amounts you accumulate. This way, you get a clear insight into your total earnings based on the hours worked.
A payslip provides a detailed overview of your earnings and deductions. At the top, you usually find personal details, such as your name and the number of hours worked. Next, you'll see the gross salary and deductions, like wage tax, followed by the net amount that gets paid out to you.
You'll also notice the 'all-in rate'. This rate consists of your gross hourly wage, combined with all reserves, like holiday pay and other allowances. It means that for every hour worked, in addition to your gross hourly wage, you also build up a reserve for these extras. This is why your gross hourly wage is lower than the all-in rate.
Wage tax reduction is a discount on the tax you pay on your salary. If you apply this reduction, you pay less tax and, therefore, receive a higher net salary. You're allowed to apply this tax reduction with only one employer at a time.
