Meet the Office Assistant - Adela van Schaick

We have shared a lot with you about our company, our events, the Netherlands as a country and their traditions. We feel like it is high time you got acquainted with some of our colleagues. This blog will give you more insight into the life of an Undutchables team member, the challenges they face, their most memorable moments and their guilty pleasures. This week we will introduce our Amsterdam office assistant, Adela van Schaick. Enjoy!

1. How did you end up at Undutchables?

In 2011, I was going on a weekend away with my partner and his colleagues. I made a last minute decision to join the weekend away late so that I could go to a job fair in Amsterdam first. At the fair I met one of the wonderful Undutchie people (my colleague Sie Wai) at the Undutchables stand....and the rest is history.

2. What are the most enjoyable aspects of your role?

I love to help my colleagues and the office perform well by creating structure and organizing.

3. What is the biggest challenge of the job?

Having to disappoint candidates – I wish we could help everyone to find the right job.

4. What has been your most memorable moment in the job?

My YouTube minutes of fame! 😃 A few years ago we suddenly got many calls and emails from job seekers in Turkey. After some research we discovered that a candidate I’d helped had made a YouTube video about Undutchables and mentioned my name as contact person.

5. What do you think is key for a successful recruiting process?


6. If you were to have a job outside an office environment, what would be your dream job?

Run a travel and adventure holiday park for families.

Scrolling through Vinted. 😃
