Tom Wijdooghe, Manager of the Flanders team, answers our questions:
How would you describe your team?
Professionals, problem solvers, flexible, hardworking… these are some of the words which match the people I work with. We started working of the Flemish market just before Covid-19 entered and reshaped our world. Instead of leaning back & finding excuses to not continue the growth, every single person in the team went for that extra mile. They continued building strong collaborations with (new) Clients on which they can rely! Once again it is proven that having the right people is the foundation of every success story. That is exactly what we are doing for the moment…
What are the main objectives for 2021?
Becoming professional partners towards our Consultants & Clients where no problem should be left unspoken and where no challenge is too big.
What is your strategy to develop BELGATECH’s presence in Flanders?
Within BELGATECH Engineering Services we are building strong relationships with both our Consultants & Clients. As in every relationship, everyone who is in it, needs to work hard to make things happen. Together you will always find a solution to overcome every issue or problem. These relationships with our Client, Consultants and Colleagues, form the foundation of our unit where everybody has the right to make mistakes and can bring new innovating ideas to the table.
What do BELGATECH bring as added value to Clients?
Open communication and nuances. We are building long-term collaborations where every part of the chain is essential. In order to help companies, we need to know the whole story to find the right Consultant. A story where there is room for nuances and flexibility!
Which kind of profiles are you looking for?
Most of our Consultants are having a background in electro-mechanics but nevertheless we are listening to every motivated candidate.
For which kind of missions and sectors?
Our main focus will be on the Engineering market and temporary assignments. This way we feel we will have the biggest impact on our Clients because we are able to help them on a short notice with experienced profiles. In compliance with BELGATECH’s strategy already disclosed by our CEO, Frederic Sigel, we are focusing on 3 main pillars: Life Sciences, Energy and Transportation.
Where would you like to have your offices in Flanders?
Our target zone for our future offices is the south of Antwerp, more precisely around Edegem and Berchem.
