Rob: “In my career I have been successful mainly by matching the right man or woman with the right place. This not only gives the best results but also a good deal of satisfaction. At Heiwegen I can utilise my experience to connect clients and candidates. This applies also to temporary assignments and secondments where I like to stay involved to make sure an assignment is properly fulfilled.”
