Meet the TCP team! This month we would like to introduce our Client Services Specialist for Germany and Switzerland – Lars van der Mespel
In February 2017 Lars started at TCP Solutions as a Client Services Specialist for Germany and Switzerland, working from the head office in London.
“My work is split between introducing future employees to TCP and making sure they’re properly on-boarded, helping recruitment agencies with what they need to know in order to make a placement and coordinating with end-clients, to make sure all the paperwork is processed on time for the new employee to start.”
A typical day for Lars involves “Speaking to candidates, recruiters and end-clients, solving their problems and helping them with their questions regarding temporary employment in Germany and Switzerland. Also, assisting my colleagues in HR and Legal in setting up the necessary contractual relationships”. For Lars his favourite part of working at TCP “is where you realise that your input helps to drive the process forward” as well as “completing an entire sales cycle from initial request to contract signature”.
Before joining TCP Lars studied at university in Mainz, Germany before moving to London. His first job was in IT contract recruitment, sourcing for German clients. “While working there, I noticed that I prefer the account management/CRM/BD part of the job more than the actual recruitment bit, hence my application to join TCP”.
Outside of work Lars enjoys exploring London and the many places and opportunities the city has to offer.
