Integration Hero: Gijs

gijs veldpaus

Enable U is made up of individual heroes. Some work with clients, others send invoices. Some are our first point of contact when we get a call and others work in the background to keep systems running or make new connections.

The Enable U machine works so efficiently mainly because of our many integration heroes. This series of Integration Heroes is meant to honour those individuals.

Gijs works as Digital Sales Consultant in the Enable U Sales & Marketing team.

So, Gijs, what do you actually do all day?

For now most of my work is to help the Digital Sales Team. I make offers for customers, solve tickets and calling customers.

When did you start working at Enable U?

Well I did my internship in February 2023 and ended that end of June. Then after a break I officially started as a full employee on 15 December 2023. 

What did you do before joining us?

I studied international business in Den Bosch which I graduated from. During my study I worked in several jobs . Most notably was my time as a sales representative for DPG Media and Vriendenloterij.

What part of your current role do you enjoy the most?

I like the customer interactions that I have. It is nice to offer a product to a customer that will help people connect.

What do you do to keep your knowledge up-to-date?

Every morning I check out the news and what happened in the world.

And as I am no hesitant to talk to people, I learn a lot by asking questions and listening to other people.

How would you describe Enable U as a company?

I would describe Enable U as a company that has a very easy to enter environment with people really willing to help, with a good combination of experience and fresh views on topics I think Enable U combines the two quite well. It’s nice to learn from the people with experience and they can use the fresh insights that the younger generation adds.

Work is important, but what do you do in your spare time?

In my spare time I like to go to festivals with my friends. I also like to travel as much as possible. As I only have a set amount of days off, this limits the options. But I try to make the best of it by doing small trips.

What would you like to say to your other Enable U colleagues?

Enjoy the little things in life even when you are busy.
