What has happened to SAB Detachering?
We used to be called SAB Detachering, but in June 2021 we changed our name. This was preceded by a lot of history…

SAB (‘Stichting Centraal Administratiebureau’ or central administration bureau foundation) was established in 1950 in cooperation with Koninklijke Hoogovens. Over the years, the foundation has developed into a valued and reliable supplier of temporary workers in production and administration. In 2007, the deployment of technical staff was added.

In 2015, Tata Steel stepped down as a participant in the foundation. SAB Foundation was then transformed into SAB Detachering and continued under the wings of BuildingCareers Companies. The company then transferred its activities for production and administrative staff and made qualified technicians and project managers (mbo4, hbo and wo-level) available to various industrial clients from then on.

Because SAB Detachering and BuildingCareers Recruitment & Selection worked with one team and the two labels grew closer together over the years, we decided to merge the activities of both companies under one label: BuildingCareers. Now we offer both secondment/interim projects and recruitment & selection, and always have a suitable solution for both engineers and industrial clients.

Which services does BuildingCareers offer?
We mediate engineers on both short and long term basis. Our services include short term (freelance) projects, interim assignments or secondment projects as well as long term placements on the basis of a permanent contract or recruitment & selection.

Whether temporary or permanent: we put the right person in the right place.

What kind of engineers do you recruit?
We recruit engineers and technical people throughout the asset lifecycle: design phase, construction and commissioning, production and maintenance and finally revision and decommissioning. You can think of different and varied positions such as project engineer, safety expert, assembly coordinator, process operator, work planner or QA manager.
What levels of education do you work with?
We provide secondment and recruitment & selection of technical staff at different education levels: university, college and secondary vocational education.
What kind of companies do you work for?
We work mainly for asset owners, the end users of installations. And especially in the 24/7 manufacturing industry. We focus on projects that are aimed at making the industry more sustainable.
