What I do
I have been connecting Financials to organisations for more than 10 years now, by means of thorough search and in-depth interviews. I have also been working with outstanding interim managers for many years and therefore I have gained a good insight in their added value.
I have challenging conversations with Financials on a daily basis to help with their next career step or interim assignment. I enjoy staying in touch to establish long term relationships.
My goal for clients is, of course, to present the “best People for Finance”.
I am specialized in (interim) Finance and my areas of expertise are on openings related to:
CFO/Management, Change Management, Business Control, IT Control, Accounting, HQ Accounting, Regulatory Reporting, Risk, Compliance and Internal Audit
Finally, in cooperation with certified coaches, I developed and carry out a team development programme on the tennis court.
For Interim Managers
Your competences are making the difference. That’s why I ask you, for example, about your skills to realise change in a highly sensitive setting. I look for the leadership style that matches you – your strengths and weaknesses, values and beliefs, personality and talents. When I have a thorough grasp how you work to achieve results I can, proactively, find matching interim assignments.
For current vacancies and upcoming openings I’d like to fully understand your personality, competences and ambition. My experience with listed companies, start – and scale ups can help you find out which kind of organisation would be the best match for you.
I will analyze an organisation and give advice about team settings and team development. My finance background at Delta Lloyd Group and ABN AMRO Verzekeringen helps me to understand the finance requirements. I have a lot of experience in accentuating the desired competences of a job profile. I am able to present the best match because I continuously invest in my network and I have long-term experience with interim managers.
“Betrokken en professioneel. Die 2 kernwoorden vatten Auke samen. Ik ken Auke via de vele opdrachten die ik als interim financial via Auke heb uitgevoerd. Auke onderscheidt zich van andere recruiters door dat zijn doel werkelijk is, de ideale match creëren voor zowel kandidaat als opdrachtgever.”
“Ik heb vanuit verschillende relaties met Auke gewerkt. Hierbij heeft Auke laten zien geen CV-schuiver te zijn, maar juist veel aandacht te hebben voor de passende karakters in de optimale match tussen opdrachtgever en opdrachtnemer. Hij verdiept zich hierbij echt in zowel de opdrachtgever als de potentiële opdrachtnemer.”
“Working with Auke is great. He will not only try to be successful on the short term. He likes to see the big picture is and will act on that. Auke is super service minded and result oriented. He will get the job done. Apart from his professional services also nice to have a good talk with.”
I have been connecting financials with organisations since 2008. I have developed my own professional style in matching the ‘best people for finance’. My previous experiences at Delta Lloyd Group en ABN AMRO Verzekeringen are also helpful in understanding finance.
My drive is supporting careers and having inspiring conversations, over many coffees ;)-.I keep searching and digging to select the best financials. Coaching during assignments and procedures gives me a lot of energy. It keeps me learning!
The establishment of long-term relations is the nicest part of my business. The friendships and personal conversations are valuable to me.
Finally, as expected, I like to be on the tennis court. I have been a KNLTB qualified Tennis Coach since 2012 and use tennis in my team development programmes.
