Q&A

What is Tyro’s mission?

Since its founding, Tyro has made the recruitment of student and junior profiles its spearhead. This is because Tyro was born from an ambition: wanting to put the careers of young talents the right track. Tyro’s mission is to offer promising and ambitious candidates the professional opportunities that suit them best.

What is Tyro’s offer?

Tyro is a recruitment agency specializing in young talent of Generation Z. We recruit students and young graduates looking to work in growing companies, either as an intern or junior.

  • For candidates

Students and graduates contact us via our chatbot and provide us with the information we need. Then we are able to lead them to offers matching their expectations, skills and ambitions. We recruit for both internships and  first jobs. The needs of our customers are varied and can range from web development to supply chain, digital marketing and business development/sales.

However, note that Tyro’s spirit is not to serve an internship or junior position on a silver platter! At Tyro we think you’re the boss of your career. As a candidate you also have your share of the work and will have to stand out among other students and graduates.

  • For businesses

Tyro helps you recruit the best talents for your junior positions. We try to get a better understanding of your needs. We select the most suitable profiles for you and send them to get in touch with you. Our clients pay us on the result, when they staff one of the profiles we sent them in their teams.

For your internship opportunities, Tyro also helps you by providing you with a sourcing of hand-picked candidates.

Are you a consulting company?

No, Tyro is a recruitment agency. However, there are many similarities with a consulting agency. Our clients pay us to provide solutions in our area of expertise, recruitment. The term “advice” can also be applied to candidates, whom we can advise on their CV, profile, professional choices or to stand out and pass their job interviews.

Do you also recruit for jobs or internships only?

Some of our clients recruit for internships only. Others recruit just for jobs. Others are recruiting for both. The process is simply slightly different from one situation to another. Whether you’re looking for one or the other, you can fill in your information and details on our chatbot to access, perhaps, golden opportunities!

Are your services free for applicants?

Yes, the service is completely free for applicants. Our service is paid for by businesses, which allows us to offer a 100% free service to students and recent graduates.

Is there a selection among the students enrolled?

Yes. Our clients expect us to select candidates who can deliver quick results. To do this many factors come into play, such as spoken languages, professional experience, hard skills and soft skills. We connect the best profiles with the best opportunities.

What is your business model?

At Tyro we want to offer a qualitative recruitment service to our candidates and clients in an accessible way. So we chose to adopt the “No Cure, No Pay” policy, that is, to be paid for the result by our customers. Companies only pay us when we find them the talent they need.

What kind of companies do you work with? (sector/size/industry)

We mainly work with growing start-ups and SMEs. Due to the diversity of the start-up world, we work with a wide range of industries, from the automobile industry, fashion to innovative fintech. We also work with consulting firms, marketing agencies, investment funds… Our only criteria for our customers are the quality of the professional opportunities they offer, as well as their corporate culture. We carefully select our customers and offer them a real follow-up so that our service is as satisfactory as possible.

What happens after the first interview with you (in the situation of a job research)?

If you are looking for a job, our team looks for and selects from our clients’ offers which could be the best “match” on the candidate’s side as well as that of the company. If we can establish a mutual interest, we put the candidate and the company in touch. We then let the two parties meet and negotiate together. For our part, we continue to provide detailed and personalized follow-up throughout the process to facilitate interaction and ensure the right conditions of the meeting.

How long do I have to wait before I have a meeting/interview with the company?

If you are looking for a job, the time between an interview with our team and the company can vary. It depends on the availability of the candidate and the company, as well as the response time of the latter two. As soon as we interview our team, we send offers to the candidate according to his skills and expectations. If the candidate shows a real interest in the offer, we send his profile to our client. If the client company is also interested in the profile, the meeting can be organised. Therefore, the time between an exchange with a Tyro member and the first contact with the company varies from a few days to three weeks.

Where does Tyro operate?

Our offices are located in Brussels and we work mainly with Belgian and French companies. However Tyro is a box full of ambition and will later extend its activity on a much larger area!

Are internships paid in Belgium?

In Belgium, the remuneration of an intern is at the total discretion of the company. As a result, many internships in Belgium are not paid, but this is not an absolute rule. We still have paid offers. If this criterion is decisive for you, just mention it on the chatbot.
