Meet the Team

2023 is the start of something big! For the first time, the Careers Centraal team is joining forces with the leading HR consultancy CLEVIS Consult to bring HR consulting closer to young ambitious students.

Alexandros Leontiou, David Koch, Nils Arians, and Daniel Spilles, 4 International Business Administration students in their second bachelor year at the Rotterdam School of Management, form the core of our internal team and are looking forward to working with the future students and our highly appreciated partner companies.

Indeed, from initial plans in the summer of 2022, a close network of HR specialists and leading companies have emerged. We use this to provide currently relevant learnings for our students and a one-time opportunity for close networking and placement in internships, working student jobs, and permanent positions.

Our Story

Alexandros, David, Nils, and Daniel got to know each other back at the beginning of 2022 as part of a medium-term university project, the Strategic Business Plan, and got on very well right from the start. The months of collaboration quickly developed into a close friendship – with each other, as well as with the CEO of the SBP company CLEVIS Consult, Matthias Höfer, and the entire team.

After the completion of the Strategic Business Plan, however, this cooperation was not to end immediately. With the idea of making HR interesting again outside the lecture hall, the team developed a new Strategic Business Plan – but this time for Careers Centraal.

After numerous trips to Munich to the office of CLEVIS Consult, an initial idea quickly turned into a complete model, which offers our students, our partner companies and the company itself enormous added value in various areas. After working out all these ideas, Careers Centraal was created according to our principles Learn, Connect, Emerge.
