I worked in the recruitment industry and applicants often asked me for more explanation about the vacancy. I ended up on the Spielwork website via a friend and was an immediate fan. When Manus pitched all his ideas to me, I wanted to start as soon as possible.

I saw a problem in the market and I wanted to fix it. I noticed that after reading a vacancy you still don't understand what a job really entails. Vacancies must be honest, visual and concrete.

I thought it was cool that I could set up the entire Spielwork brand. In addition, I also felt that we could turn it into a sexy brand :)

For a while I saw interesting vacancies on social media via Spielwork. Besides being impressed by the content of the vacancies, it was striking how well the vacancies matched my profile. Spielwork's concept is right on both the demand and supply side. The fact that you really help to make the right match really appeals to me.

When I first heard about Spielwork, it immediately sparked my enthusiasm. Sometimes you hear about something and think 'if only I had thought of this'. I had this with Spielwork. In addition, you get to know many new companies in different branches.

I regularly came across vacancies on Facebook and Instagram that were created by Spielwork. The visual vacancies aroused my interest, so I took a look at the site. It was here that I accidentally came across the vacancy for the position I currently hold!

I really love writing. In addition to writing, I find content marketing very interesting: how can we put Spielwork better on the map? Moreover, I fully support the mission of Spielwork. No company can do without good employment communication.

What is our biggest challenge?

The biggest challenge for Spielwork is to convince as many companies as possible that Spielwork vacancies provide a better match. The more companies become customers, the more jobseekers can discover what a job is really about. To prove our added value we need to collect data. That is why we must measure which jobseekers find a job through Spielwork and whether these turn out to be good matches.

‘Prove that the Spielwork vacancies provide a better match.’
