HR Consultancy

Feel free to get in touch for more information anytime. Working through a personal approach is what gets me hyped; I want to be sure I can make impact & deliver. After an introductory meeting I'll get back to you with a detailed offer so our expectations are perfectly aligned and we both know just what to expect.


You hold a no-obligation, free of charge intake interview in which we discuss objectives and expectations.

Together we map out current and desired needs.

We agree on the most efficient approach and strategy tailored to your organization and needs. Once these conditions and search strategy are set we get started.

We evaluate the state of affairs weekly, adjust where necessary and make this cooperation a success!

When desired tailor-made recommendations to make the onboarding process more efficient and effective can be provided.

Estimating corporate culture, and the match between the wishes of the employer and the candidate, is one of my strengths.
Should turn out that I am not the right person for this project, you can expect transparent and honest feedback here as well. I will be happy to refer you to a partner who is more suitable to help you with your question.


  • 11 years of experience in (international) recruitment

My HR career kickstarted in 2010. I learned the tricks of the trade at a temp office but quickly moved towards outsourcing and consultancy companies where I successfully delivered recruitment & selection assignments of white collars.

The people I was looking for at that time were mainly managers within a technical environment (situated in the field of Engineering & Technology, Production, Food, R&D, …) Along the way my portfolio of clients and assignments grew bigger and so I gathered people management experience, leading a team of recruiters.

Then I enrichened and broadened my knowledge deep diving into the world of executive search. Both nationally and internationally I performed searches for IT, FMCG, Retail, and others.
A thorough experience in recruiting sales managers, especially tech-sales, was also acquired.

Depending on the specific project and after an intake interview we can define the correct recruitment solution, discuss your specific needs and define an appropriate approach.


Trust & Respect

No empty words or promises. I only do ethical entrepreneurship with respect as one of its most important pillars.

I ensure that every assignment is carried out confidentially and meets your every single requirement.


'Well done is better than well said' is the quote that suits me best.

Not only meaning you can expect quick responses and straightforward feedback, also referring to the fact I strive to be efficient in everything I undertake. Open, swift and honest communication, from both sides, is key in delivering the best results possible.

Personal Approach

Being a small organization, you as partner will always have a personal point of contact with whom you can build a sustainable long-term collaboration.

A SPOC that will keep you up to date at all times and who will provide you with friendly and correct feedback throughout the whole process.


I hired Julie in February 2018. What a fighting spirit to make the difference! What she realised that year and in 2019, no one with her profile, on her age and with her background did it before. Persistency and a mentality of a winner. I experienced Julie as very mature, smart and sharp, fast and hard working. Fighting spirit to deliver results. Ownership, has always an action plan ready when facing challenges. Talent to keep in your team.

I got to know Julie as a very structured, hardworking and result-oriented sales and HR professional. She is tenacious and goes to great lengths to help a customer or colleague. We have seen her grow in the depth and quality of the work she produces, she has always been eager to learn and improve herself. On top she is simply a fun colleague to work with. I see a bright professional future for her and wish her all the best!

Julie has excellent recruiting and business intelligence skills. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with Julie will truly appreciate her efforts to find the right 'fit'. Julie is one of those rare professionals who can focus on the details and can also have far sighted strategic visions. I appreciate Julie's willingness to put me in touch with others within her network and am delighted to recommend her. I look forward to working with her often in the future.



I want to thank you for the professional way you treated our demand to find help for an extra accountant. It worked all very smoothly and fast. We will keep on working with you in the future ! We can recommend everyone who is looking to find extra personnel to work with Julie.

My own experience with Julie was, that she is a very motivated and experienced recruitment professional. She has the emotional and professional capability to guide you in the search to the best opportunity for your further career. She is still a young in age, but don't underestimate her skills in this recruitment sector. Thanks Julie, to find the perfect match for me !



Ik heb Julie ervaren als een zeer betrokken persoon. She goes the extra mile and then some. Ik was niet weerhouden voor de positie die zij in portefeuille had. Desondanks ben ik met een goed gevoel vertrokken. Jullie is iemand die er alles aan doet om een kandidaat waar ze achter staat verder te helpen. Na ons gesprek heeft ze zowel intern als in haar netwerk verder gezocht naar een goed match en blijft ze met oprechte interesse informeren naar mijn status. Dit is een op en top professional die zegt wat ze doet en doet wat zegt. Ik kan haar alleen maar aanbevelen en zal in mijn verdere loopbaan zeker en vast haar naar voor schuiven indien de situatie zich ooit voordoet. Keep up the good work!



Julie heeft me recent proactief benaderd voor een job die me inderdaad op het lijf geschreven blijkt. Ze is uiterst efficiënt, professioneel en resultaatgericht maar evenzeer authentiek in haar empathische en waarderende benadering van de kandidaat. Door haar warm-zakelijke aanpak voelde ik me gedurende heel het selectieproces benaderd en gezien als mens én kandidaat. Julie is een uitstekende ambassadeur en een waardevolle kracht voor elke HR-dienstverlener die wil meewerken aan een duurzame arbeidsmarkt.
