Envisioning her future, Judith Wissink always wanted to learn a lot at the beginning of her career and simultaneously put her knowledge into practice. Of course, this is definitely an option when working for a bank as a trainee. But Judith began to seriously consider the consultancy business when, after graduating, she was invited to attend an open day aimed at familiarizing her with Zanders. After a couple of talks with future workmates, Judith became even more enthusiastic and she decided to accept a consultancy position at Zanders.
“The advantage of starting as a consultant compared to a traineeship is that you are set to work straight away and are immediately taken seriously. You quickly get a client and a project that you are involved in,” explains Judith. “In addition, the professional and informal atmosphere at Zanders appealed to me.”
Operational straight away
The Corporate Clients department works for Dutch and foreign multinationals and medium-sized to large corporations. Judith’s career immediately got underway with the handling of operational assignments in the area of cash management and back office support. This was followed by various assignments within companies’ front offices and assignments in the area of treasury control.
Judith says: “I find it very interesting that the Zanders consultants can be deployed throughout the entire process; from the back office via the mid office to the front office.” At present, Judith is putting more and more time into strategic assignments such as the execution of treasury scans.
“I can now use the knowledge that I have acquired over the past couple of years during assignments to provide clients with solid advice.” Judith also experiences the increasing amount of work that Zanders handles for international clients as a new, interesting challenge.
Content-driven and challenging
Judith likes her job as a consultant. “It’s a content-driven and challenging job, in which you work for and at different companies. This gives you a broad perspective,” says Judith. “For the moment, I definitely want to stay with Zanders. There are a lot of career development opportunities at Zanders and the firm regularly offers interesting (internal) training programs.
In the longer term, I would like to develop towards a financial and strategic management position. But first, I still want to learn a lot and gain experience.”
