Who you are
While it is, of course, important that you have the relevant qualifications and experience on paper, it is even more important that you fit in with our team. Are you always on the lookout for how things can be done faster and better? Great: that’s what we’re looking for. You like to get to the bottom of things. You take responsibility for the good, thorough execution of the project from start to finish. You are analytical and have an eye for detail. An assertive communicator, you love being given the freedom to express your creativity and enjoy taking on tough challenges together with your colleagues. And if there is room for improvement, then you say so. Because a workplace in which people are open with each other, and where different cultures work together under one roof to achieve the best possible results, is your kind of workplace.
