We're looking for a People & Culture Manager to nurture our open culture and take care of our growing team. 

Do you have a genuine passion for people and want to make an impact by creating a value-led culture? Apply and let us know what you could contribute to the team. 

Explore more about our business here.


CLEVER°FRANKE is an enthusiastic, multi-disciplinary team of 50+ people with 15 different nationalities from across the world and we use English as a primary language to communicate and collaborate. We are interaction designers, visual designers, developers, project managers, data analysts and others. All with a passion for what we do. We are curious about the world around us, and apply the same curiosity to our work and projects.

As our PEOPLE & CULTURE MANAGER, you're the strategic guide for our team's culture and talent development, shaping our workplace into a positive environment. From attracting talent to nurturing their growth and managing HR operational tasks, you're the conductor of our employee journey. Alongside managing our HR administration and day-to-day HR aspects, you work closely with our HR Coach to identify specific development needs and provide our specialist team with the support they need. In doing so, you champion our core values and create a safe and supportive space for us to work and grow.

As a leader, you are people-focused and know how to build effective relationships. You are a great communicator who can inspire change and adapt your approach to the situation. You are open-minded, willing to learn new HR software tools, and keen to streamline and improve processes. You are a supportive co-ordinator who knows how to help, organise, and get buy-in from a diverse team. You are a self-starter who easily switches between daily tasks and long-term projects/strategic HR. 


As a People and Culture Manager you will bring:

  • Experience with working in a small/medium team and working independently.

  • Experience with HR administration and employee lifecycle.

  • Experience with topics like Talent Development, Health and Wellbeing, Compensation and Benefits.

  • Experience with talent attraction, onboarding and offboarding.

  • Awareness of Dutch employment law.

  • Fluent in English.


You’re welcome at CLEVER°FRANKE regardless of your appearance, identity or background. It’s not a place you have to 'fit in' but somewhere everyone can feel themselves and be their best to do their best.

Studies suggest that women, and others, tend to hesitate to apply for a job if their CV isn’t a perfect fit. Here, we look for talent and potential — not just formal experience and expertise. So if you like the role and think you could be awesome at it, go ahead and apply.


  • Full-time role (32-40 hours per week); 

  • Guidance from a friendly, passionate, down-to-earth team;

  • Trainings tailored to your personal and professional growth;

  • A competitive salary, based on your background and experience;

  • Hybrid working from our studio (at least 3 days from our studio);

  • A personal MacBook and all the peripherals you need;

  • A collective pension plan;

  • Inspiring team events; such as our annual team prototyping day, team trainings, sport events, conference visits, etc.


We find it important that you grow and challenge yourself and want to ensure that you are supported in this. We offer training courses tailored to your experience level and needs, personal development planning and feedback, and an HR coach. About 3 times a year, we organize a CLEVER°FRANKE Development week where the entire studio fully focuses on personal and professional growth, outside of client projects.
