You don’t often hear of someone switching from a permanent organisation to consultancy, even though it offers many opportunities. This is demonstrated by Sanne Chateau, Senior HR consultant at Quintop. In 2020, she took the plunge into consultancy and to this day she is very happy with her decision, because the ”never a dull moment” feeling is precisely what gives her energy. We spoke to her about her move and her role as a change and communication expert within HR consultancy.
After fulfilling various roles as HR Business Partner/HR Advisor and HR Project Manager at various national and international organisations, Sanne decided to make the switch to Quintop as Senior HR consultant. “What attracted me, especially at Quintop, is the opportunity to actually help build organisations and feel that my contribution matters.”
It is precisely the difference in sectors and assignments that keeps Sanne curious: ”You come across a lot of different places. I have now had the opportunity to do nice assignments for the Fast Moving Consumer Goods sector, the mortgage/financial market and the wonderful world of film and television. Every assignment is different, sometimes focusing on a specific component and other times a broad issue. This is a world of difference compared to working for just one organisation.”
