Recruitment Consultant, Faculty of Science, Utrecht University
After finishing my MSc. Life Sciences and Technology I decided the laboratory was not the place to continue my career. I decided to focus on the social aspect and to learn more about recruitment and started as a Recruiter for laboratory specific jobs in the commercial sector. After working as commercial recruiter for 2 years I made the switch back to the University and started working at Utrecht University as Recruitment Adviser. Due to my background I have deep knowledge about Chemistry and Biology as well as proper knowledge about Physics, Mathematics and technology and with this I can better understand what is happening in the departments. At Utrecht University I use my expertise to focus on recruitment for the Chemistry, Physics and Mathematics departments!
