How did you come to be an Associate in Business Support at Laurence Simons?
From the beginning, I wanted to work during my studies and gain relevant work experience. A friend of mine, a recruiter himself, thought that the field of recruitment would be a good fit for me. That’s why I seriously looked into it and started searching for a job during my first semester.
My first contact with Nico, our German Director, came about through my older brother, who had already worked with Nico and Alex during his time as a working student. Since I would also like to work in this sector after my studies, I was very happy when Nico offered me the job after our initial conversation and a trial day.
What does your role encompass?
My role in Business Support is mainly to provide support to Nico and Alex and the other consultants and Talent Acquisition and Delivery members across the Laurence Simons offices. Of course, we support each other in the Business Support Team, especially with large tasks.
My daily tasks include the management of our CRM tool, the preparation of due diligence reports or candidate summaries, and candidate mapping as well.
What projects are you currently working on?
We are currently working on expanding the compliance department of a German company in the automotive sector and filling a position as a corporate and commercial lawyer for a German company in the chemicals sector.
