Coming from the Netherlands with an accent that makes him easy to recognise, Rory comes with 10+ years IT recruitment experience (permanent, contract, exec search). Over the years he has helped organisations scale up either as part of transformations, as a result of demergers, during start-up phase or simply to deliver programs of work.
"Rory is driven by making a difference to the people he interacts with. Having said goodbye to the transactional ways of the Dutch culture, Rory deliberately puts emphasis on candidate experience, providing insights and placing their best interest first."
Aligned with the founders Alison and James' vision, Rory is excited to think differently and challenge the status quo of recruitment whilst building out Latitude's Melbourne practice.
Outside of work...
I practise my play-dough and animal-sound imitation skills to impress my kids. I also honed my oatmeal pancake, smoothies and jello making skills whilst my daughter plays the role of sous-chef.
For me, physical and mental health go hand in hand, hence my morning routine includes workouts, gratitude and meditation before my kids wake up and take over the jungle.
