In May 2007, I began my career with Hays AG in IT Permanent.

While in this role, I was responsible for recruiting IT specialists for permanent positions in our Hamburg and Berlin offices. Following this position I was then responsible for establishing the Hays Permanent business in Berlin.

In early 2011, I took over responsibility for Engineering Permanent in our offices in Berlin, Hamburg and, later, Munich.

In July 2012, I moved to Switzerland to manage our Life Sciences and Finance business.

Since then I have been responsible for all our Permanent technical positions in Switzerland, as e.g. Engineering, Finance, Construction & Property and our Life Sciences business.

In August 2002, I joined Hays in IT and Engineering Contracting in Munich. In this capacity, I supported clients from a variety of industries in filling temporary projects with external specialists - initially as a Key Account Manager and later as Team Leader.

In June 2007, I moved internally to Hays (Schweiz) AG in order to establish the new Basel branch as the site manager. After successfully establishing the business, we had two teams actively recruiting specialists for projects in IT and Life Sciences.

In May 2011, I moved to the Hays Talent Solutions division as a consultant, advising on and implementing Managed Service programmes in the German-speaking market. I was then responsible for the implementation and operation of a comprehensive outsourcing programme with a global pharmaceutical company before I returned to our staffing business at the end of 2017.

Currently I am responsible for our entire Life Sciences project business in Switzerland, where we flexibly offer our customers specialists in a labour leasing, general services or comprehensive services capacity, depending on the customer's individual needs.
