After 6 months with Precise Consultants, we said ‘Tot de volgende keer’ to Sanne Winsser who joined us a part of her International Business and Management degree at Hanze University of Applied Sciences in Groningen.

“I can’t believe my time at Precise has come to an end. I have had the dream internship here and didn’t want to leave at all! But I have my degree to return to and this experience has given me so much knowledge about how to run a successful business.

I chose Precise Consultants because it was a very, very small and new company with a unique vision: It was going to focus not on profit, but on the freelancers who worked with it. When I first met Peter, one of the founders, we discussed his vision and I knew this was the place I wanted to spend my internship.

I have seen issues with bigger companies which haven’t developed the way they operate, choosing instead to stick with tradition. As Peter had been a freelancer himself, he knew there could be a better way to do business. Along with his partner Adam they’ve built a company that focuses making recruitment better for the people they work for rather than themselves
And that vision is working. I carried out a feedback project to survey freelancers, and they all said how wonderful Precise was. I wasn’t surprised when every single one reported back that they would never leave it because of the way the team took care of them.

I was very sad to leave Precise myself. In fact I should have stopped working on the 23rd January when my internship officially ended but I actually stayed there till the 6th February, and only left because my flight home was going in two days’ time!

I hope to return. Peter told me they will stay in contact with me while I complete my degree and that they would love to work with me again in the future.

I couldn’t recommend this company more for someone interested in doing a business internship. You’ll be encouraged to get involved in the entire operation. I have friends on my course who joined huge companies but only worked within one area, whereas I worked in every single department – from sales to operations to finance.

You’ll also work with fantastic, ambitious people in a company that is changing how recruitment is done. That’s really exciting and I look forward to returning in the future.”
