Silverside moved – Come celebrate!

Due to expansion and new people joining the firm it was time to say goodbye to our old offices in Gouda and to find a new (and bigger!) home. So this summer Silverside moved offices from Gouda to Capelle a/d IJssel where we now have a beautiful new office overlooking the A16. To celebrate this occasion we will be hosting a party & reception on October 2nd. Curious about our new venue? Join us in celebrating!


  • 15:30 t/m 17:30: Open door
  • 17:30 t/m 18:30: Official opening
  • 18:30 t/m ..:..: BBQ en party!

We would love to see you on October 2nd!

Job interview with a twist

Usually I don’t really buy into these as it is of course a clever way of advertising a beer brand, but… I do love the premises of taking a process like the hiring process that is so standard, mandated and rigid that it has taken out any chance of really showing your true personality as a candidate and twisting it around completely to become something in which you can’t help but show something of yourself. But more then that, I love the idea of the voting. Making the hiring process a team endeavor and embedding the candidate into the organization before he even realizes it.

Ok, just watch it, you’ll see what I mean!
