Meet Naara, our new Recruitment Executive - Contracts!
She is a recent addition to our team as a Recruitment Executive - Contracts, focusing on the Dutch market. She tells us more about herself and her journey to PCN.
Can you tell us more about yourself?
I am a 22-year-old student from Huizen. I grew up in Huizen, lived in Amsterdam for 2 years, but then returned to Huizen to live together with my boyfriend. I am currently studying International Business Management. Last year I studied in Milan for 4 months, which I really enjoyed.
Why did you choose to work at Payments & Cards Network and in the recruitment industry?
I chose Payments & Cards Network because I have always been really interested in the payments and fintech industry. I did not exactly choose to be in recruitment because while studying I focused more on marketing. After a call with Victoria, the Head of People and Operations about the possibilities at PCN we found out that recruitment might be something that would fit me.
How did your previous (working) experience help with your current job?
I worked in multiple restaurants, I think this helps me because I am not scared to communicate with people and while working in the hospitality industry, I also developed my sales skills.
What do you like about your job/Payments & Cards Network?
I like my job at PCN as it is a 360 degree recruitment so my duties are very diverse and I can be engaged in different tasks throughout the day. I can look for clients, opportunities, candidates and whilst doing these I actually get in contact with lots of different people and build relationships.
What are your hobbies outside of work?
Outside work I love to go to the gym with my boyfriend. I also love cooking (not the best at it but practice makes perfect) and reading books.
