Andrew Simmonds

Who am I?

An English man in Brussels & for 25 years! (Married to a French lady with 2 bi cultural kids!)
Profile Group has been my focus for the last 25 years. I can definitely confirm that a company is all about the people who work with you.

I can also confirm that predicting peoples' performance is a complicated task which needs a solid and professional approach.

Experience in recruitment

25 years of recruitment and selection.
10 years of HR technology and software development and more lately an HR entrepreneur.

My favorite interview question

Give me some concrete examples that demonstrate your ability to start your motor in the mornings and take action.

Amy Antoun

Who am I?

Graduated in translation at ISTI (English & Italian), I first moved to the US and in England before coming back to Belgium. After a couple of passionate work experiences and travels, I decided to stop working to take care of my 4 children. Now, since a couple of years at Profile Group I am pleased to help and communicate with a large amount of people around Belgium.

About my job...

As business developer for Profile Group, I am your link to the Profile Group consultants. Curious by nature, I am always keen on finding new prospects and will determine the best ways to help our clients.

My favorite question (and answer)

The question that will arouse your curiosity about the services Profile Group provides.

Alexia Bossaert

Who am I?

A real "petite Bruxelloise"

My road to Profile Group was pretty eclectic. First I obtained a degree in Textile Design. Then I turned to Communication Studies. I did multiple internships as a Hostess Coordinator and Event Planner. And finally... I'm discovering the world of Human Resources as a part of a great team.

About my job...

As Candidate Coordinator / Service Specialist Talentfinder I support the consultants in their daily tasks. I also welcome the candidates, explain the various tests and prepare them for their interviews.

On top of that I provide support for Talentfinder: I publish our clients' job offers and answer their questions.

What I like the most at Profile Group?

The warm welcome my wonderful colleagues gave me. I also love the fact that each day brings its own challenges: my days are never the same. I was quickly allowed to work independently.

Anouck Van Steenbergen

Who am I?

I grew up in ‘het Waasland’. Afterwards I discovered the studentlife in Ghent. After I graduated as a Master of Laws, I moved to Antwerp. I started working there as a notary jurist, but soon after I discovered my real passion: recruitment. In my spare time I love backpacking, playing field hockey and to discover the beautiful city of Antwerp.

Experience in recruitment

I started working at Profile Group since 2018 and became part of an amazing team!

My favorite interview question

If you could do anything, what would be your ideal job?

Aurélie Gosselin

Who am I?

Native from the suburbs of Charleroi, I felt at home for several years among the 'real Bruxellois' but recently, the beautiful Pays Noir called me back- how could I resist?

My dual education in Communication and Management at the ULB and at the Solvay Business School led me to the world of recruitment, by chance...

About my job...

After a first experience in headhunting, Profile Group recruited me to source complex profiles for their clients.

Shortly after, and by chance (again!), an internal restructuring revealed the need for a Communication Officer. Thanks to my relevant education, my motivation and the confidence of my employer, I was fortunate enough to be offered the position. A first within the company! Today I'm involved in a series of exciting projects (mostly) linked to communication and marketing.

What I like the most at Profile Group?

Profile Group is a small entity, in terms of size.

However, Profile Group can be considered as a big company thanks to the diversity of the 'Profilers', their origin, education, passions, functions- and to all the learning and growing opportunities.

Chloé Carta

Who am I?

After growing up in Antwerp for 17 years, I found a quiet home in Nijlen where I still live with my husband and our dogs.

My first job was a part-time interim job as an administrative assistant, but after a year I felt like it wasn't challenging enough. Then, in 2011, I discovered Profile Group...

About my job...

Being a 'newbie' in recruitment and selection, I started working as an assistant, making sure candidates felt welcome and giving administrative support. But soon my tasks expanded and I got to work with our e-recruitment tool Talentfinder. Together with my colleagues, I gave demos, trainings and live support to end users.

Since September 2015 my role evolved to that of Consultant. Now I get to explore the commercial side of Talentfinder and use my past experience as service specialist to offer all companies a custom made solution.

What I like the most at Profile Group?

Working at Profile Group gives me a chance to evolve in the direction that suits me best. I get all the opportunities to explore my skills and to keep growing. This combined with the perfect work-life balance and a great team, makes Profile Group the perfect company for me!

Delia Lecca

Who am I?

I grew up in Liege where I went through high school and started my university education, which I finished at the UCL. After obtaining my master's degree in Communication & a sector in which I never really worked & I somewhat incidentally ended up in recruitment. It's been a revelation.

Next to my work, I'm a real epicurean. I'm passionate about cultural diversity which I love to discover on various trips. I love human contact, communication and the details that make all the difference. I'm a go-getter by nature and will always do everything I can to achieve the objectives that have been set!

Experience in recruitment

By now I have 4 years of experience in recruitment. I started as an Interim Consultant specialized in Office profiles. After three years, wanting to focus solely on recruitment and selection, I became part of a team responsible for Permanent Placements and was able to develop my recruitment skills even further.

My favorite interview question

Which three elements make the difference when you have the choice between 2 vacancies?

Delphine Castelain

Who am I?

I am a consultant at PG since 2008. This is a difficult but very rewarding job that I perform with passion every day. Happy and satisfied customers and candidates on a long-term basis: this is the mission of PG which is fully in line with my own.

Experience in recruitment

Six years during which I recruited all types of profiles and specialized myself in the legal sector.

My favorite interview question

Is there something you would like to change in your career... What would that be? And why?

Delphine Decoen

Who am I?

Native of Mons, I graduated in Management Sciences at UCL Mons and at Solvay Business School where I took a specialization in real estate.

Having always held sales positions, I joined Profile Group in 2006 to launch the office of Nivelles, and develop its market share in Wallonia. To date, I am both Consultant and Office Manager.

Experience in recruitment

My background allows me to easily understand any kind of employee or management profile (commercial, logistic, financial, assistants, manager and direction).
Since 2007, I have also specialized in the research of technical profiles, especially engineers (engineering, designers, process, production, maintenance, lab profiles...).
So far, technical candidates represent half of my recruitments over a yearly basis.

My favorite interview question

I don't have just one question. What is important to me is to identify the candidate who is in front of me, and to understand who he is, why he made his choices (education, jobs...) and why he sits next to me today. In short, I want to know everything he hasn't written on his CV!

Emma Waites

Who am I?

A British woman in Brussels since 1988 (Married to a fellow Brit with a trilingual daughter, Dutch, English and French)

Worked with Profile Group for 25 years.

Experience in recruitment

In terms of recruitment, a successful company has a clear view of both the skills and personality traits needed for every job in their firm
Experience: 26 years of recruitment experience for Belgian and international firms, multinationals and European Associations

My favorite interview question

Why does the company interest you?
With this question, the interviewer can really hear if the candidate has spent time on analyzing the company's website or just given the website a cursory glance and hence repeats the website's facts verbatim without analyzing his/her true motivation

Gabrielle Pierrache

Who am I?

I am a real city bird, born in Lier and grown up in Antwerp. Before I arrived at Profile Group, I worked in the catering industry. Ideal for training one's people skills and I also learned what hard work really means.

Working in a company with a pleasant working atmosphere, where I can perform my tasks in all independence and can contribute to the business objectives.

Who am I?

I'm a motivated consultant who feels at home almost everywhere. Apart from my work I love to cook and am currently taking a course to be a makeup artist.
