Michael is Simacans new recruiter
Hi Michael, welcome to Simacan! What will you be doing at Simacan and what are you looking forward to?
Simacan is growing fast. To be able to continue growing at this pace, I started as an interim recruiter. This means that, in the upcoming period, I will be busy with setting up a sustainable recruitment strategy and also with finding, engaging and enthusing new talent for Simacan. Or rather, future ‘Simacanners’. I am already looking forward to telling people about Simacan!
Where did your working life start?
My career started at Albert Heijn on the day I turned 15 and I was so proud after my first evening stocking the shelves ☺. The past 15 years I’m actively working within recruitment for several companies and in different roles. My main experience lies within retail and logistics and foremost in the domains of sales, marketing, IT and executive recruitment.
How was your first impression of Simacan, even though you didn’t have a chance to meet all your new colleagues in real life?
Colleagues are really friendly and willing to help you find your way within Simacan. The ambition and professionalism within Simacan are high and that brings out the best of you. I was immediately invited for events and meetings and that made me feel very welcome.
Would you like to tell us a bit about yourself?
Work is a big passion for me, always curious about the story of our applicants behind the cv. What did someone do, or not do, to reach their full potential. Besides work I like food, food, food ;) Love to cook for friends or go out for dinner and discover new restaurants. To balance that out I sport 3 times a week and I try to walk everyday between 7000 and 10.000 steps. Love to spend time with friends, family and my partner.
