Campus Recruiter


The key to Optiver’s success as a leading market maker is our people. We place a strong focus on education and internal growth, making the Campus Recruitment team pivotal to the development of our Amsterdam and London operations. As a Campus Recruiter, you will be responsible for hiring into our Internship and Graduate programs, as well as attracting top talent to our early engagement initiatives. Have an innovative idea? You will have both the freedom and resources to make it happen – we believe in autonomy, ownership and providing a platform for everyone to make an impact. We know our best work is done together, so you’ll both collaborate with and potentially mentor other Campus Recruiters across our Amsterdam and London teams.



Optiver is a tech-driven trading firm and leading global market maker. As one of the oldest market making institutions, we are a trusted partner of 50+ exchanges across the globe. Our mission is to constantly improve the market by injecting liquidity, providing accurate pricing, increasing transparency and acting as a stabilising force no matter the market conditions. With a focus on continuous improvement, we participate in the safeguarding of healthy and efficient markets for everyone who participates.

Our Amsterdam office is where it all began. Over 35 years ago, Optiver’s business started with a single trader on the floor of Amsterdam’s European Stock Exchange. Since our 1986 founding, Optiver’s Amsterdam office has grown into one of the most dynamic and exciting trading floors in Europe. Our culture reflects the Dutch capital city’s progressive, innovative and inclusive nature. With its unique spirit, Amsterdam is the ideal hub for our teams to trade a wide range of products from listed derivatives to cash equities, ETFs, bonds and foreign exchange.



Our Recruitment teams are formed of specialists that work across our three key departments: Trading, Technology and Business Operations. The core focus of our Campus Recruiters is to identify, attract, and secure top talent from our target markets for our early careers programs and opportunities. To help us achieve our goals, your responsibilities will include;:

  • Building and maintaining strong relationships with top-tier universities and target student groups;
  • Planning and executing on-campus and in-house for students including delivering company presentations, attending career fairs and hosting in-house days;
  • Traveling across Europe as needed during peak seasons;
  • Developing innovative recruitment strategies supported by data-driven insights;
  • Proactively assessing and improving our current recruitment strategy;
  • Exercising your interviewing toolkit – combining accurate assessment with a top candidate experience;
  • Mentoring and supporting the development of your colleagues;
  • Building effective relationships with internal stakeholders;
  • Leading and/or collaborating on impactful projects such as market specialisation, interview quality and calibration, candidate experience, and diversity & inclusion.



  • Bachelor’s or Master's degree
  • 2+ years of relevant or related experience (ideally in graduate/campus or other high-volume in-house recruitment)
  • Experience recruiting from the Netherlands/broader EMEA markets is highly valued
  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in English
  • Able to handle competing priorities and to work effectively in a challenging, fast-paced environment
  • An appetite to utilise data to inform strategic thinking and decision-making
  • Flexibility with regards to working hours, since events and traveling can take place during evenings and weekends



The chance to start your career working alongside best-in-class professionals from over 40 different countries.

Alongside this you will get great secondary benefits such as 25 paid vacation days, fully paid first-class commuting expenses, training opportunities, discounts on health insurance, breakfast, lunch and dinner facilities, sports and leisure activities, Friday afternoon drinks and even weekly in-house chair massages.



Apply directly via the form below for the position of Campus Recruiter. Please provide us with a CV and letter of motivation in English. Applications without a letter of motivation will not be reviewed. When we think there is a potential match, you will hear from us sooner than you expect.

Kindly note that we do not require any assistance from third-parties including agencies in the recruitment of this role.



As an intentionally flat organisation, we believe that great ideas and impact can come from everyone. We are passionate about empowering individuals and creating diverse teams that thrive. Every person at Optiver should feel included, valued and respected, because we believe our best work is done together.

Our commitment to diversity and inclusion is hardwired through every stage of our hiring process. We encourage applications from candidates from any and all backgrounds, and we welcome requests for reasonable adjustments during the process to ensure that you can best demonstrate your abilities.
