We’re excited to welcome Toby to Payments & Cards Network! He is a new addition to our team as a Recruitment Consultant, focusing on the Benelux fintech and payments market. He talks more about himself and his journey to PCN.
Can you tell us more about yourself?
I’m 27 years old, half Dutch half English. I’ve been living in Amsterdam for the last 7 years.
Why did you choose to work at Payments & Cards Network and in the recruitment industry?
I used to own a restaurant with my business partner. After some years, I am looking for a new adventure, something I have never done before. The fintech and payments industry particularly interests me. Also, I used to sell champagne alongside with my own business so I would like to be engaged in a job related to direct sales/recruitment.
How did your previous experience help with your current job?
When I was running my restaurant business, I had a lot of direct interactions with customers and suppliers. These conversations have taught me a lot, especially in terms of my negotiation and communication skills. I believe these experiences would be very beneficial for me in my current job.
What do you like about your job / Payments & Cards Network?
PCN is a young and international company with a friendly atmosphere that I can have direct interactions with every colleague. Every person in the company is open to share their knowledge to grow together as a team. What I also like is there are a lot of learning and training opportunities to develop my skills, and all the sophisticated tools the company is using for its business.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Apart from work, I love to devote my time in reading, snowboarding and meeting my friends.
