“Working in the offshore industry means dealing with innovative projects, enormous vessels and huge technical challenges. My role offers challenges on an interpersonal level. Being able to find the right people at the right time for State of the Art projects is what makes me tick”, says Josien, who joined TOS in 2010 as a consultant for the offshore division. She currently works as senior consultant serving TOS’ larger accounts.
“I love my job because I really get involved with my clients, almost as part of their team. That means that we do have tough times together, the closer we get to boarding date, the harder we need to work to fill those last vacancies. But we always manage to get the right candidate on the right spot so that the vessel can sail on time, and that is the greatest feeling.”
Knowing TOS as one of her clients in her previous role as recruiter of office support staff, Josien knew what she was in for. As her manager says; ‘In this business we all need to co-operate to get the job done, that’s a given fact. Being able to acquire new assignments from your clients while maintaining contact with the crew requires focus, great understanding of the business and true involvement… And that is just her.’
