I joined Darwin for their long-term vision, growth and focus of development of their people. At this moment I’m the business manager for the South German market. Our teams focus on the development niche in IT, for permanent as well as contract roles. With the level of expertise, knowledge and engagement of our people at Darwin, we can grow our business in Germany, Europa and across  the globe.

Every day I get very excited to see how our teams work with love and dedication, and making a difference for our clients and  candidates. That I can be part of helping and coaching this group of people to strive for the best, is very rewarding. Before I started  at Darwin, my career in recruitment started at another organization in Amsterdam as a consultant. After a short time I saw the opportunity in Germany and moved to Düsseldorf and Munich to set up and build the business. My goal is to do the same and   further build the German market and after that explore new opportunities for Darwin.
