After completing my pre-university education and Communication studies I started working in the Recruitment Business with USG Group (Unique Uitzendbureau at the time) in 2001. Here I fulfilled various roles for the first seven years of my career, from Recruiter to eventually Branch Manager of various branches in Amsterdam in the last years. After this, I switched to recruitment and selection because I wanted to mediate more experienced specialists on a higher level. I did this for several years at, among others, YER, Career Factory and van der Houwen in the role of Consultant and Managing Consultant, where I mainly mediated Financials at Career Factory on mid/senior level. In the meantime, I worked for a year as HR Manager at advertising agency DDB to experience ‘the other side of the table’; to subsequently find out that my heart really belongs to recruitment. The last six years I mediated senior temporary employment specialists at Brunel in the digital Marketing Communication field. From 1 March 2019 I joined LIME Search as Senior Consultant and I will focus on further expanding our temporary employment branch in the field of senior Finance Temporary employment roles.
I get energy and passion from my private as well as my professional life. Professionally speaking I find it important to continue to develop, on a personal and a content-based level. I like working with entrepreneurial, professional colleagues, who find enjoying the job as important as working hard. Being critical in a positive way, constructive, connecting and enterprising, always aiming for the best result for customers and candidates. Entering into relationships for a longer time and continuing to add value are important to me and give me a huge amount of energy. Personally, my passion and energy consist of my family: my husband Gijs and two daughters Minke aged 10 and Neeltje aged 9, and I also like sports (horseback riding, skiing and yoga) and enjoy going into nature with our dogs and cosy dinners and activities with friends.
The senior level on which we speak to and mediate candidates and customers from LIME Search fits with my many years’ experience as Consultant while offering me a lot of room for growth and further development. My ambition is to optimally serve our (temporary employment) network and expand it and continue to develop on a daily basis on a professional and personal level.
LIME combines a number of matters which I was looking for in the next step; a specialist in the market with a personal, connective and professional approach, where quality comes first. The customer’s interest comes first; a great network of customers and specialists combined with the Consultants of Lime is a proven success formula which I am proud to be part of.
