What is secondment?

Secondment is the "lending" or "hiring out" of employees to clients. As a secondee, you put your expertise and skills to work at different organizations. This gives you the opportunity to flexibly shape your career and gain valuable experience.

How is secondment different from regular employment?

In secondment, we are the official employer of the seconded professional, while the client provides the work and workplace. This involves a three-party agreement between us, you and the client. Secondment is usually temporary and has a specific purpose, such as putting together a project team or filling a (temporary) open position.

What is the difference between secondment and temping?

Posting often focuses on specialized positions and longer projects, while temping offers flexibility in short-term assignments and general positions. In addition, secondment involves a notice period, while temporary workers can terminate their contract at any time.

What are the risks of posting?

Working as a posted professional comes with risks, such as adjustment challenges and reduced access to specific benefits.

Can I advance at a client as a secondee?

If a secondee demonstrates skills, commitment and performance during an assignment, the professional can become valuable to the client. This leads to new opportunities, such as being given more responsibilities or taking over leadership roles.

Does the non-compete clause apply on secondment?

According to the Allocation of Workers by Intermediaries Act (Waadi), there is a ban on obstruction. This means that after a secondment agreement, an employee is free to work in a similar position with the client. The non-competition clause is in many cases (partially) not valid with secondment.
