The management of The House of Procurement is in the hands of Ronald Jordens, who can present 30 years of experience in national and international procurement, supply chain and facility management and consulting positions. In time, Ronald started to focus on the HR aspects of these positions as well, at the request of his clients, and has developed expertise in finding HR solutions for many large and medium-sized companies. In the past years, as a pioneer within Supply Chain Capacity and Pro-Cured he has been particularly active in this field. With THOP, he and his team now continue to provide the market at a quickened pace and a heightened standard. Along the way, Ronald continued to find that many organizations keep requiring support in order to sustainably design result-oriented procurement and supply chain improvement programs that contribute to developing their maturity and financial results. For that reason, Ronald decided to kick off 2019 with a combined service where these niche HR solutions and the targeted support of procurement and supply issues occupy centre stage under one roof.

Every applicant has his/her own personal track record and goals for the future. In our experience on the market, we have found that HR departments often put too much of a focus on key words in resumes in their search for candidates, creating an impersonal, sometimes unpleasant, relationship between HR officers and candidates. To the extent that candidates can become irritated because he/she is being swamped by emails, keeping applicants from being able to form an authentic relationship with HR offices. As the Talent Sourcing Specialist at THOP, Marc attaches a great deal of importance to building and maintaining a sustainable bond of trust with candidates and consultants. He focusses on the accurate knowledge of hard/soft skills, personality and ambition of candidates. For Marc, a qualitative recruitment and selection process with client and candidate is of paramount importance in order to create the right match
