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.
Born to deaf parents, Belgian Sign Language is my mother tongue along with French. I am what we call a CODA (Child of Deaf Adults).
My passion for foreign languages and different cultures inspired me to pursue translation studies in English-Chinese, and obtaining a Master's degree in Communications. I've had multiple academic and professional experiences in Belgium, as well as around the world; where I resided one semester in the US, one semester in Spain and three years in China. After a full and intensive training in coaching, I started to reflect on what would be my next professional step.
After assessing and considering all my transferable skills, I started contemplating a career in recruitment, and therefore contacted Rainbow Resources Group. Learning that the organization’s values are aligned with my own values reassured me in my decision to join the team. I am now a happy member of the team, discovering a real passion for my job as a recruitment consultant!
I was born in Belgium but come from a typical English family.
I attended a French-speaking school, but only spoke English at home.
After my studies, I became self-employed.
As a manager, I came to realise that my interest was in HR & Payroll rather than in the business part of the job.
I then took time to improve myself, by expanding my knowledge through different courses and training programmes.
In summer 2016, I started a new chapter in my life with Rainbow Resources Group.
I look forward to building on my skills and developing a career in Human Resources.
After obtaining a Master’s degree in Psychology and 15 years of field experience in many different segments, I joined the Rainbow Resources family as a Recruitment Consultant. As a student and in life, I’ve always tried to get the most out of the opportunities I was presented with. I grabbed the opportunity to gain knowledge, experience and skills by working on projects for several organisations. In the political segment, for example, I built a team of up to 20 people, managed a lot of local campaigns and gained a lot of people knowledge and marketing experience.
My decision to join the Rainbow family is mainly driven by the opportunity to develop a new region for Rainbow Resources Group. Furthermore, the core values of Rainbow Resources, such as passion, respect for people and dynamism, are perfectly in line with my personal ambitions.
When I am not at work, I enjoy family time, music, concerts and doing sports, such as running and swimming.
It was back in highschool, that I took my first steps in the design and graphical world. Never could I have thought at that moment how big of an impact that would have on my future. Print media (printing) and multimedia (film, photography, lay-out and webdesign) have been key-elements in the rest of my career.
I followed my Bachelor’s in Applied Linguistics at the Antwerp campus of the KU Leuven. I studied Dutch, French and Arabic, languages that I kept on studying during my Master’s in Multilingual Communication. I learnt the principles behind internal, external and intercultural communication. Because I wanted to add to my experience, I spent a lot of time in student jobs and internships: two student jobs in HR, an internship in Marketing and another one in external communication.
I recognise the importance of learning about the world. During my student holidays, I would travel multiple times abroad to follow summer courses: language courses, but also classes about politics, economics and culture interest me. In that light, I have followed a conference at the Ludwig-Maximilian University, about the socio-political and economical challenges in parts of the Middle-East.
In fact, my fields of interest (communication and HR) collide in my function of Communication Officer and Recruitment Assistant at Rainbow Resources Group and I am very keen and highly motivated to contribute to the story of Rainbow in that way.
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.
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?
Born as ‘little Sandy’ in a warm family, supported in every decision I made, I chose to take a different path after I graduated.
« You have a way with words, go into the sales industry » they said. And so I took my first steps in a commercial position. Afterwards, I went on to work in administrative and support roles. Experience, from which I still benefit today.
Caring for others and helping them, have always been central elements, not only personally but also in my job. The values of Rainbow Resources Group are aligned with my personal vision, resulting in the fact that I can be myself at work. Using my experience to help others find a new challenge, I go to work every day, with a smile on my face.
I aspire to offer quality and service in all aspects of my job.
If I am not at work, you can find me with my family or at the dance school.
I arrived in Brussels when I was 15 and immediately decided to make it my home. I have now been living in Brussels for over 10 years and love the city everyday a little more.
During my studies at Solvay Business School I interned in Executive Compensation, where my interest in Human Resources began, I later found a position as Compensation Analyst in a multinational consulting group and later as an in-house Compensation & Benefits Specialist. Realizing, the part I enjoyed the most was having a client portfolio I decided to use the knowledge acquired so far and start a career in Recruitment.
“Every good conversation starts with listening”-Tom Haak. As a Recruitment Consultant, I aim on finding a fit between clients and candidates to create value for both.
During my life, I had the chance to travel a lot and to live abroad for 11 years in countries like Australia, Namibia and the Fiji Islands.
I did my last years of high school and completed my higher education in English, which is why I became bilingual English/Dutch.
Having to get out of my comfort zone over those years, I became this social being that loves to be surrounded by diverse personalities. In my opinion, this is an advantage in the recruitment sector where understanding and reading people are very valuable skills.
I can put myself behind the norms and values of Rainbow Resources Group, which helps me to do my job with pride, passion and honesty. My colleagues are extremely talented people who never stop to inspire me. This is how the Rainbow Resources Group family vibe gets its meaning.
