Ensuring a smooth match between agency and staff

I like the challenge of finding the perfect balance between Tinker's needs and our employees' ambitions. Every staff member brings different professional skills and requirements to the table. Sometimes they match, and sometimes they don’t. The playing field where these separate worlds collide is particularly fascinating to me.

As Tinker’s HR Operations Manager, I am the intermediary between the agency and the shop floor. I am the eyes and ears of the company. By paying attention to people’s signals and listening ‘between the lines’, I try to get a clear picture of what is going on, both in the MT and among the Tinkers. This helps me to respond quickly to any bottlenecks or wishes. There is a solution for every situation. At the end of the day, I want people to feel that they can function at their peak. It means I've done my job well.
