Recruitment experience

After studying Marketing Management and Human Resource Management, Marielle found her passion for recruitment in 2000. She now has more than 16 years experience in recruitment for large-scale listed companies and mid-sized businesses in Europe.

Successful recruitment has everything to do with finding the perfect match. Besides the hard and soft skills of the potential candidate, for Marielle the perfect match hinges on the fundamental factor of whether or not there’s chemistry between two parties. Only when the match is truly perfect, both talents and organisations can work to realise their ambitions.

Her personal drive and endless energy show that no project is too big or too difficult: with creativity, Marielle works to turn problems into projects with clear goals and solutions.


Marielle has a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing Management and Human Resource Management.
