My name is Bas, I am an IT recruiter working for Venderion. Besides being a recruiter I also manage everything related to IT at Venderion.
IT is my passion, and I am very interested in everything IT related,  but why did I chose a job in recruitment?

A year ago I was actively looking for a job, yet I noticed the job market was very degree and not talent focussed. Unfortunately, I never got a bachelor or masters degree yet I have the knowledge to compete in this market.
I wanted to help people based on skills and experience, they reviewed my work history and my interest in recruitment and Venderion gave me the chance to prove myself.

In my first year at Venderion, I have proven myself to be a competitive recruiter. My Network consists of 5000+ Software Developers, Engineers and Database Administrators, and my main focus is the Portuguese market.

2nd Level Agent

Call Center Benelux | (CCB)

The second line of a help desk is a place where technical competence meets customer relations.

Incidents, escalations and tasks are typically assigned to the second line of a help desk because they cannot be resolved at the initial point of contact. As a second-level service desk technician, it was required to have a high level of technical knowledge about the systems, processes and operating environment of the user.

Moreover, I had the ability to execute and carry out the required technical work in order to bring about a resolution to the initial issue.
