Meet the team of coordinators from Tilburg!
The coordinator’s work requires, above all, organizational skills and nerves of steel. Yes, there are days as calm as the water of the Pacific Ocean, but there are also storms 10th on the Beaufort scale! Coordinators not only help workers find their way around and are a bridge between Eurojob employees and the employer. They also cover the fleet, work schedules and react to everything that happens in real time… which is a lot. Their task is to take care of the customer’s comfort, but also to be a real help for the employees.
What is the work of your team about?
We look after Eurojob employees (and future employees) at the customer’s premises. Our work is dynamic and creative, there is no place for boredom. It’s hard to describe a typical day because there is no such concept… sure, we have some office patterns that are repetitive, but otherwise there is no routine here. We are kind of like psychologists – each employee is different and requires individual treatment. There are people who report a lot of problems and some that we rarely see. Besides, working with people brings a lot of surprises. There will always be someone who did not know something, fell asleep, his phone broke… for us it is a great responsibility and stress, but also a solid dose of adrenaline! We are sort of logistics specialists – we organize daily company transport. It is surprising, but transport planning is a spontaneous and risky activity! We publish the plan the day before and we never know what the day will bring and whether the real needs of that day will match our plan. We also look after locations and cars. In fact, we are constantly learning something new. In this job, it is impossible to predict what the day will bring.
What is the best about your work?
Gray Cell Training! We really can’t complain about boredom. Eurojob is a demanding employer and we are an ambitious team that tries to do their best. New procedures, system changes, courses improving our qualifications… We fear nothing!
How do you help employees?
We are not helping them. It is rather a collaboration. We try to find the best solution for the problems they report. It happens that we are also mediators in private disputes. Sometimes someone feels bad in a certain department of the company and then we help them find a place where they will develop their skills better.
What amazes you the most about Dutch people?
Their openness and directness. They can get things done with white gloves on, without blinking an eye. It can be amazing, puzzling, sometimes a little scary! When they do something, they’re quickly getting over it and not looking back. And a date with a Dutch guy?! That’s an interesting event! It is like a job interview, and at the end of the day, the guy will thank you for your time! And the Dutch language also amazes… it’s difficult and intimidatingTheir openness and directness.
