Interview with the MD:

“After successfully having set up the SAP team, it’s now time for a proper ServiceNow effort, which will become an even bigger success. For that we need the right talent with the right mindset.

After that we will launch Microsoft and build out that effort, so enough room for growth.

We need a total of 6 FTE’s, of which 5+ years’ experience to lead projects, but we also need capacities at a lower level to build a solid platform.

If you don`t have ServiceNow experience, but at least GRC experience with the other  tools/ solutions, that is fine as well.

How do they distinguish themselves from i.e. the Big-Four;

1. Real and content-driven knowledge

2. Listening to the customer and looking for the solution together instead of slightly adjusting its 'own' model and pushing it into the organization (which sometimes seems to be the case with other Consultancies)

3. Jointly (with the customer) put together a solution, so that the solution is a more permanent one

4. Soft skills - involved, friendly and more human

5. Lower work pressure

6. Your wings aren't being cut..

7. Autonomy

8. Entrepreneurial: able to build/set up your own effort

9. Output driven: life before work!
