MacAnders was founded in 2004 with the ambition to work across borders. "Anders" means "otherwise" in Flemish. Our name is our raison d'être: head hunting done differently.
In 2013, MacAnders acquired the French firm Nemrod, a recruitment consultant since 1993. In 2015, Macanders Belgium was founded to bring our offer of services to the BeNeLux zone and even beyond. This is the beginning of an adventure that will take us to other European countries.
