Remi Broer is a senior year nursing student and works at one of the biggest hospitals in the Netherlands. He has also taken on the challenge of working as a Key Account Manager for Medpeople’s new market.
Hi Remi! I know that you love being a nurse. Can you tell us a little bit more about your carrier?
I’m from a small village outside of Rotterdam called Alblasserdam and I’m a senior nursing student. I also just started working at the Children’s Psychiatric at Erasmus Hospital, which is one of the biggest hospitals in Europe, after a time at the Intensive Care for Neonatology.
That sounds really exciting! Why did you start working here at Medpeople?
I was contacted on LinkedIn by Kave, CEO, to answer a couple of questions about how it is to work as a nurse in the Netherlands. A couple of questions led to a longer chat and eventually we agreed that I should start working at Medpeople as a Key Account Manager.
Did you have any previous experience working with sales?
Yes, I used to work at a department store. I mainly worked at the bakery section, which taught me a thing or two about customer management and sales, but it’s very different from what I do at Medpeople.
What do you like the most about your new role?
I would say that I like almost everything with my role at Medpeople! I’ve never done anything like this before, and that’s exciting! Also, everyone in the team is extremely helpful and encouraging. I really feel supported, and I’ve had the opportunity to find my way into the company quickly.
Another thing I love about Medpeople, and which feels unique to the company, is that you are allowed to have your own opinion and input. You can make your voice heard, and your suggestions are taken seriously. I really like that!
What do you think will be your biggest challenge?
To keep it short, I think my biggest challenge will be all the administrative tasks and working more behind a desk. It’s something I haven’t done in a long time, so it’s a small adjustment.
I’ve heard that you have been too Peru. Can you tell us more about that?
Yes, I did an exchange internship during High School where I went to Peru for a month to help children. We also visit this desert where we went surfing in the sand.
What is the absolute best thing you know to do, that gives you energy?
I love traveling and being out in the nature! It can be everything from visiting different restaurants and hanging out with friends, to more active activities like climbing. New crazy adventures are my thing!
