Elles van der Meer
After many supporting roles in the field of HRM within the international oil and gas industry, Elles went on to set up the assessment centre for the first large scale recruitment campaign for school leavers with an HBO degree, as Project Leader for KPN.
After the successful implementation of the routing and set-up of the assessment centre, Elles wanted to further develop her skills in organising projects at an international level. She started in the Marketing Department at O’Neill Europe where she was responsible for all the print releases within Europe and for the implementation of a new logo in the international market. Having covered several diverse marketing positions, including three years as International Event Marketing Manager, she then concentrated on the organisation of the bi-annual dealers’ meetings both within the Netherlands and abroad.
Having made the conscious decision to concentrate on being a full time mother for a few years, she was still always active in the business world, looking after the finances of her husband’s company. Through her interest in people and what motivates them, she then chose to work for the Nassau Group. Having gained a lot of experience as a Research Consultant, Elles has been working for the last few years as a Consultant. Elles has helped national and international clients with their Executive Search, career counselling and assessments. Elles is very active within the international network to which the Nassau Group is associated and is our Treasurer. Elles’ educational background is in Tourism and the French language. She has also completed many different management courses over the years and she is SHL certified for making assessments.
She can be described as attentive, creative and driven. Her personal statement is:
