I launched Rainbow Resources Group with the acquisition of Rainbow Careers (now "Rainbow Admin Careers"), a company with more than 30 years experience on the Belgian market. I subsequently created additional specialised divisions such as "Rainbow HR Careers", "Rainbow Flex Careers" and “Rainbow Coaching”.
I started my career in Auditing and later acquired Advisory and Marketing experience in one of the Big Four. Moving into the recruitment sector, I have accumulated more than 25 years experience as a Consultant, Manager and Managing Director in a number of small and large, national and international, specialised recruitment firms.
After graduating from Solvay Business School, I trained at INSEAD. I am also a certified Business & Executive Coach and certified Mediator.
Passionate about business, specialised in permanent and temporary recruitment in particular, I foster and live by values such as trust and fairness.
I believe in the strength of a smile and that a picture speaks a thousand words.
I was born and raised in Belgium by a French-speaking father and a Dutch-speaking mother. I am, therefore, perfectly bilingual in both languages and acquired fluency in English thanks to my education. After obtaining my degree in Office Management, I started my career in the FMCG sector. I always wanted to combine sales with a human approach and long term relationship building in my job. I discovered a real passion for recruitment and, after spending 4 years with a specialised recruitment agency, I wanted to take my experience to the next level.
I joined Rainbow Resources Group in July 2013 to start up our HR division. In 2014 I also helped with the development of Flex Careers and since September 2017 I work in our brand new office in Mechelen. Dynamic, enthusiastic and passionate about my work, I deliver a high quality of service.
Helping students to deepen their knowledge to become who they want to be on the work floor.
For 13 years it was my drive to be an enthusiastic teacher, but I knew that it was not something I would do my whole life. I want to evolve and explore new horizons.
Rainbow Resources Group gave me the chance to develop myself in new areas. I am privileged to literally experience the values of this organisation. I can really put them into practice.
As a Recruitment Assistant, I take on the responsibility of the agency in Mechelen.
I welcome candidates, help them through the tests, take care of the office & supplies and help our consultants in their search for suitable candidates.
I truly enjoy the variety of my job. Putting numerous jobs on our website in Dutch, French and English; giving guest lectures at universities; publishing articles online, it is all part of the job.
At Rainbow I want to deliver top service with great care and further develop my skills.
I’ve always been a very curious person. In my studies, this curiosity translated to broad interests encompassing what at first glance could be considered very different subjects. I always liked to ask many questions and loved science, history, literature, arts… So what about university?
I hold both a scientific degree in Biomedical sciences and an artistic degree in Linguistics and literature: a rather unusual combination. Biomedical sciences satisfied my desire to understand the human body from a cellular to an anatomical level. Linguistics and literature allowed me to become fully trilingual, to understand how human language works, and to follow my passion for reading. Literature also showed me the power of human imagination and how it was given form over the centuries.
What drew me to all these disciplines was a deeply rooted interest in human life, in the human body and the human mind. Why? Because people are interesting! Now, as a Recruitment Assistant to the amazing team at Rainbow Resources Group, I get to work a trilingual job that entirely revolves around people. I am not done learning, I am still curious, so… what is your story?
I grew up in West Flanders but since then I have been living and working for over 25 years in Brussels, the capital of Europe.
For more than 25 years, I have worked in different administrative positions from Personal Assistant to Events Coordinator for various departments: Sales & Marketing, Finance, IT, Logistics, Government Affairs, Patient Advocacy & HR in the pharmaceutical sector. I am now very motivated to use my extensive industry experience to match the right profiles with the vacancies to be filled.
A job as recruitment consultant where I can use my passion for networking combined with analysing the needs of the clients and candidates is a big motivation for me to get out of bed and go to work. I joined Rainbow Resources Group in November 2018 and hope now, for the second half of my professional career to use my previous experiences to find the right matches for candidates and clients while building and sustaining long term relations. It gives me positive energy to bring people together and move forward.
Lifelong learning and lifelong health at work are my life mottos! Therefore I also spend my free time promoting the implementation of healthy lifestyles through the non-profit organisation LifeMe Besides that I am also playing golf to relax and enjoy some fresh air.
Born and raised in Sweden, I was always very curious about the world and I really wanted to improve my English, so as soon as I got the chance, I moved to the UK and started studying Human Resources. After my studies I worked within HR and Recruitment in England, Sweden and Czech Republic before moving to Belgium. I have worked mainly in international settings and I believe I have developed more of a European personality rather than a Swedish one. When I first got in touch with Rainbow, I was instantly attracted to the diverse and international team and I now consider myself lucky to be a part of it.
As a Recruitment Consultant, I am passionate about finding the perfect match between client and candidate. For me, there is nothing better than knowing that you made a difference, and what is more important than finding the right environment for people to spend a big part of their lives?
