Our people & culture professionals
Every company needs backup from time to time. Our team offers the best interim solutions for innovative, people-centric, and growing companies. We are professional, friendly, and fun to work with. Above all, we understand what you need.
If you are looking for temporary support in your People and Culture department, we’ve got you covered. Every consultant in our team has worked with a variety of organizations. We’ve seen a lot of different ways of working, and can easily adapt to your culture and team.
People & Culture Specialist / HR Operations / HR Generalist
Our Specialists have a background in people operations in combination with recruitment, and they all have a relevant degree in this field. They can jump into any existing HR department and help you with the administrative side, as well as provide advice to employees and managers. They have 2-5 years of experience in a similar role.
People & Culture Lead / HRBP / HR Advisor
Our Leads have a background as HR Business Partner, and can provide advice to managers and leaders. They have often worked as HR manager (managing small teams) before, and can lead complex projects themselves. All of them have worked for a range of innovative companies. They have 5-10 years of experience in a similar role.
Expert - L&D / Compensation & Benefits / HRIS
Our Experts have a background working in a specific domain, and are absolutely amazing in that specific area. We know all our experts very well, as we’ve worked with them for years on a range of projects. They are freelancers, who benefit from working with 7people by joining us on projects where they provide specific expertise.
People & Culture Leader / Head of People / HR Manager
Our Leaders have a background as HR Manager, Head or People or VP People. They have managed teams, and worked directly with CEO’s and Founders to design and execute the HR strategy. All of them have worked for a range of innovative companies. They have 5-15 years of experience in a similar role.
People & Culture Project Manager
Our Project Managers have a background working in HR, and can oversee any project from start to finish. They aren’t the subject matter experts themselves, they use their superb planning skills to ensure we - as a team - deliver a quality result within the set timelines. In more complex assignments, we often use a PM.
We offer a range of options when it comes to recruitment. We have a strong network of freelancers we can tap into, as well as RPO solutions. When recruitment is part of the assignment, we will arrange the resources for you.
We provide interim support for diverse occasions, such as expertise during specific periods, sick leave, extra capacity during busy times, maternity leave, covering a sabbatical, and temporary replacements for resignations.
We partner with innovative companies of 25-1000 employees, understanding your unique needs - no matter your size. When you work with one of our consultants, you tap into our Collective Wisdom – the combined knowledge and experience of our entire team, which we gladly share with you.

We’ve seen almost every HR system and tool, and are up to speed before you know it. We're here to roll with what's working, and offer a fresh perspective if that's what you're looking for!
Paul joined our team as interim HR Business Partner and immediately added value. He's a great colleague who listens well and quickly connects with the rest of the team. He also worked very independently, with a focus on progress and results. In a relatively short time he finished an important project, and I highly recommend working with him.
Willemijn de Wit | Director People & Culture ChannelEngine
Ingeborg was our interim Head of People for a period of 7 months. During her time with us, she managed to finish and implement a number of projects that we were thinking about for years. So really kudos for getting all this done!
Hans Ober | CEO TicketSwap
We had a fantastic collaboration with Iris, who was with us for 3 months. She fit into the culture of our company from day one, so it felt like she had been working for us for much longer. Iris was a great sparring partner on People & Culture topics (for example Compensation & Benefits) and was able to improve some of the operational processes. She also helped us to recruit our new People & Culture Advisor! It was a nice cooperation in which we could also use the knowledge of 7people and we definitely recommend Iris as a talented People & Culture colleague!
Doortje van der Laan | Head of People Pacmed
Yara joined us in early 2023 as interim VP of People, temporarily stepping into that role while we searched for a replacement. She not only helped keep the company on track, but she proactively identified, worked on, and delivered substantial improvements to our business. It's been a true pleasure working with Yara.
Rien Kamman | CEO Source.ag
Judith joined us for 6 months to cover a maternity leave as People & Culture Director. We could not wish for a better “stand-in”. We were in a turbulent phase and she brought the right questions and critical points to the table. Judith was part of the team since the day she started and kept this connection & commitment until the very last minute. Steering the P&C team, taking a seat in the Leadership Team and guiding projects. Judith is the perfect helper if you need more structure, vision & clarity. She helped us take the next steps in our growth/change process.
Barbara de Jong | Operations Director Zoku
For a period of 6 months Romara has done a tremendous job supporting us with HR tasks during the maternity leave of our HR Manager. And doing these tasks with a super positive mindset, it’s contagious! It really was a pleasure to work with Romara, we wish her best of luck with her upcoming projects!
Eric Polak | Change Manager (People/HR) Instapro Group
Simone did a tremendous job in developing the People & Culture department at myTomorrows. In 6 months, she made an impressive impact, with creating and implementing company values, creating a learning & development framework, choosing and implementing a new HRIS, and building a career & growth framework. 7people also helped with the search for our new Head of People & Culture, presenting us with very high quality candidates. I would recommend 7people to any growing organization that wants to bring the People and Culture department to a next level! (edited)
