Work is one of the most important aspects of people's lives. Even after thirteen years in employment services, it is still a privilege to be able to assist organisations and people in furthering their ambitions.
WHERE DID YOUR STORY START?
It was working via Randstad that made me aware of the employment services industry. It turned out that they were looking for people too! It's a fascinating area, you have a major influence on people's job satisfaction and thus on their happiness. That's actually the common thread running through my career; what could be better than making someone happy?
WHAT DRIVES YOU AS A PERSON?
Helping people and organisations to realise their ambitions, and so making a positive impact on their happiness and success. The best part is surprising people with that exact job that rings their bell or that one candidate who's exactly what they need.
AND WHEN YOU'RE NOT AT WORK?
When I'm not working, my favourite place to be is at home with my wife Maaike and my kids (three boys). As a hobby I enjoy fishing, although I don't do it enough thanks to things that need to be done in and around the house.
