Minoek Wijs – Africa Recruitment Consultant
Ever since my first visit to Africa in 2006, I have always been interested in the African Continent.
For over seven years I have been working as a Human Resource Consultant for the Randstad Holding in The Netherlands, which is one of the leading service providers in the world specialised in search and selection and HR solutions. In this role I was responsible for the selection of suitable candidates for my clients in different sectors.
In 2014 I got the opportunity to work and live in Zambia for six months, where I was working as a HR consultant in local organisations. I have contributed to the development of a HR department by facilitating recruitmenttools and other technical assistance. Since I have experience in working in challenging environments such as Ghana and Zambia, I can better understand the African context as well as working in a multi-cultural environment with sensitivity and respect for diversity.
