Els Petitjean

CORE Profile

After nearly having spent 25 years away from Europe it was time to return back to The Netherlands, when I came across the vacancy of CORE Recruitment it was like a match made in heaven!

To be able to find the perfect match for the client and candidate really gives me so much joy and excitement, I canโ€™t explain it but I absolutely LOVE IT and the rest is history!


Being born and raised in Belgium originating out of a hospitality family there was no way that I would not have a career in a similar field.


As a little girl, I was the cashier on a Saturday morning in my Dadโ€™s butcher shop, this gave me so much joy because I could be cheeky and talk to random people which I loved. Till this day, I still enjoy a good chat and a laugh โ€“ some might say that you hear me before you see me, unsure what they mean ๐Ÿ˜Š


What do you do when you're not at work?

When I am not working you will find me walking or cycling around Holland and trying to find a nice glass of Chardonnay and some great cheese! Sometimes more wine then cheese but hey , you only live once right! ๐Ÿ˜Š

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I always wanted to be a flight attendant when I was younger , travel the world, serve food and travel for free !! why not ??? Instead, I opted to just travel the world and live in different countries, experience different cultures and further my career in hospitality this way instead.
