A match Made in Heaven is a recipe for success.

The holy trinity of matchmaking: What makes a match, a match made in heaven?

The holy trinity of matchmaking

No duty the Executive had to perform was so trying as to put the right man in the right place.– Thomas Jefferson

In order for a match to be a match made in heaven three elements need to coincide:

  • Timing
  • Skills & DNA fit
  • Budget

A match made in heaven is nothing more, nothing less than having Mister/Misses right, at the right time, at the right place, at the right price.


As with many things in life, timing is everything.

From experience, there is little planning being done by companies when it comes down to interim resources. When the need emerges, it is usually high. With very little that can be done.

To manage this axe of time, we at Made in heaven proactively manage our database of freelancers. Keeping track of their current activities and contracts at all time. That way, when a request comes in, we can immediately create a short list of available profiles.

Skills & DNA fit

Having the right skills and experience is vital for a good match. Since we used to manage interim projects and project managers ourselves, we know what to look for to get a good match. We look for people that have done the job before so they can jump right in. For us, sending out a CV to a customer isn’t a KPI. We aim at a 100% fit and we rather have no match than bad match.


Providing solutions with respect to budget is key for a match to be a match made in heaven. We believe ‘value for money’ is a fair principle. We charge a fair margin of approx. 20% compared to the industry standard of 30% or even higher. Companies and freelancers that work with us quickly experience that we do what it actually says on the tin. We do account management, matching profiles, contracting, invoicing and follow-up.

Fair. Easy. Transparent.
