Testimonial 

After 16 years in a company, the decision to move for a new challenge was difficult and sometimes hectic with doubt, fear, and insecure feelings.
 
During this process, I was lucky to meet Hannah and her team. They spend time on active listening and feedback and draw a personal status of where you are in your career and what you are looking for in your next career move. 

It can be a long process, but you will feel supported and encouraged by her regularly. Until the time Hannah calls you, describes the position and tells you: “I think this role is for you!” Then everything can accelerate. 

Hannah walks you through the recruitment process, ensuring every step is understood, prepared, and all is in place (information, schedule, agenda). What could be a stressful moment becomes a real added-value conversation for everyone.

Hannah or her team would always stay available before and after each step of the recruitment process, ensuring everything goes smoothly for all parties involved. She always stays open mind with a supportive attitude.

Finally, this was a serious and solid partnership that supported me in my next career step and beyond. Thanks, Hannah!
