The Cookie Company

Niet alleen een goede match tussen opdrachtgever en kandidaat maar ook de juiste klik tussen opdrachtgever en dienstverlener. Mark Damman van WERF vond de business controller waar Sabine Hulsman van The Cookie Company naar op zoek was. Een succesvolle plaatsing dankzij een persoonlijke benadering.


Met bouwpakketten voor voertuigaanpassingen bedient b-style heel Europa. Omdat het bedrijf naast innoverend ook een gezonde marktstrategie hanteert, verviervoudigde de omzet de afgelopen jaren. Hierdoor was de financiële administratie hoognodig aan versterking toe. WERF, een organisatie die zich richt op het werven, vinden, selecteren en plaatsen van financiële professionals, kwam met de juiste kandidaat.


Via-via ben ik bij Werf terechtgekomen, en ik moet zeggen, Werf heeft uitstekend werk geleverd. Werf leverde voortvarend kandidaten met het juiste profiel en heeft vervolgens een aantal kandidaten aan mij voorgesteld. Na het eerste gesprek een online assessment LTP online en een tweede gesprek, daarna ook de referenties benaderd. Gedurende deze periode heb ik na iedere stap een professionele terugkoppeling gekregen. De kandidaat was toe aan een volgende stap in haar carrière, Werf belde precies op het juiste moment, dus ons puzzeltje past prima in elkaar. Via Werf heb ik mijn financiële rechterhand gevonden daar ben ik blij mee. Kortom, voortvarend en uiterst zorgvuldig. Een plezierige ervaring die ik iedereen kan aanbevelen.
