About PeelPioneers

We are the sustainable peel farmer of the 21st century. Instead of being incinerated into waste, we give orange peels a second life: we extract raw materials from the peel that we process into food ingredients. Our new factory in ‘s-Hertogenbosch has a production capacity of 50,000 kg of peels per day. And we are proud of that. Together with about 40 other colleagues you pioneer, on the way to a sustainable and circular future.

You will work closely with the business team (Office Manager, Finance Controller, and Commercial Director) – as we don’t have departments in our organization – where you will have the freedom to take initiative and make an impact. Our colleagues are active on LinkedIn, so you can get a glimpse of who you’ll be sitting next to during lunch. Every day is different, and the ability to adapt quickly makes the work enjoyable and challenging. At PeelPioneers, we have a flat organizational structure, allowing you to easily approach anyone in our open workspace. Check out our company video for a sneak peek.

The ingredients you’ll need.

  • You have a completed HBO/WO degree, preferably in HRM.
  • You have a minimum of 3 years of experience in a relevant HR position, preferably within an operational/technical organization.
  • You have up-to-date HR and legal knowledge and are familiar with the latest laws and regulations in the field of HR.
  • You are a generalist: you have experience with various aspects of the HR field.
  • You enjoy working independently and are accustomed to a demanding, rapidly changing environment.

If you want to make a real impression with your application, these are our important preferences:

  • Affinity and experience with the recruitment of operational staff.
  • You are hands-on, flexible, resilient, and able to handle ad hoc tasks effectively.
