I began my professional career at a specialist IT network infrastructure company in Bavaria. I then subsequently moved into T-commerce, where I gained my initial insights into working in management.

In 2007, I joined Hays in Munich and was involved in developing the company's IT operations before being sent to Vienna to help drive forward our Permanent business in Austria.

After successfully completing this project, I returned to Germany and now work in our Hays offices in Hamburg. From here, I am in charge of all our activities across Germany for recruiting and placing IT experts in permanent roles with our customers.

In addition to a master's degree in the social sciences, I have also completed IT-related vocational training. The combination of these two fields continues to help me to fully appreciate the individual challenges and requirements of our customers and candidates – both from a technical and personal perspective.
