My story.

Passionate about people…

I think that is the best way to describe what I do and why I do it. Over what seems a lifetime already, I have grown from national and international companies via the social sector to where I am today, doing what I love most: helping people understand people on the work floor.

Over the years I have seen a lot of unused potential and downright wasted talent, sometimes due to certain circumstances, other times as a result from miscommunication or misunderstandings. I have made it my mission, backed up with the right trainings of course, to be the intermediate person in order to create win-win situations for these non-native employees and their current or future employers.

My goal is to link the right talent with the right employer and have them both benefit from a long prosperous work relationship!

  • “With great respect for and understanding of the culture, possibilities, interests, talents and needs of both parties, Ilse seeks to create spaces where employees and employers can flourish together in a safe working environment. During the past 2 years, she inspired me to give multiple non-native employees an opportunity in my team, for which I am very grateful. Ilse combines enthusiasm and passion for people with realism to make things happen. She’s well-prepared and continuously supported both the employees and myself as employer. An extremely professional matchmaker.”

  • “I got to know Ilse as an enthousiastic collaborator. She puts a tremendous amount of energy in bringing people together and is very driven in working with non-natives who are searching hard in finding their way on the Belgian job market. Through her broad network and her excellent coaching abilities, Ilse is always able in giving that non-native on the search a clearer view and better understanding of the possibilities.
    Also in her follow ups, Ilse doesn’t drop the proverbial ball!
    This is precise custimization tailored to the non-native and companies from A to Z!”

Always constructive feedback to share, supported me the entire time and can motivate people in their most uncertain moments of their life. Not only is she extremely professional and result driven, but she is also very personable. Her engagement with people from different cultures and backgrounds is impressive.
