Even before her first interview, she already knew she wanted to work at Bulsink. The warm welcome and inspiring projects were confirmation that she wanted to be part of the team. Meet Project Engineer Mary-Solange Nunes.
“I came here with one goal in mind and that was this position at this company.”
Can you tell us a bit about yourself?
“My name is Mary-Solange. I’m 36 years old. Born in Weert, raised on the sunny island of Aruba and now I live in Eindhoven. In Aruba, I worked for an interior contractor, but during the Covid pandemic I lost my job. That’s when I decided to go to the Netherlands, to find a better future for my 7-year-old son Deshaun and myself.”
“In my spare time I like to plan outdoor activities with my son. Swimming, going to the playground or the park, playing football.”
How did you end up working at Bulsink? And why did you choose Bulsink at the time?
“Through a secondment agency. Even before the first interview, I already knew I wanted to work here because of the background information I had looked up. I came here with one goal in mind and that was this position at this company. My first interview was six weeks after I arrived in the Netherlands, and in the eighth week I started at Bulsink as a Project Engineer.”
“Why Bulsink? Here, everything is about building ambitions together, so where better than at Bulsink? That was the reason I had come to the Netherlands. To continue building my career here. The warm welcome and inspiring projects were confirmation for me that I wanted to be part of the team.”
“After almost two years at Bulsink, I’m still incredibly proud to work here. You are given challenges and that helps you get the best out of yourself.”
“It’s super cool to work with well-known formulas and help companies achieve their ambitions.”
What do you do as Project Engineer?
“Making quotations, preparing work activities, reviewing work drawings, purchasing, planning and monitoring everything in the ERP software. Together with the Project Manager, I help arrange everything that is needed to achieve a project. One team, one task!”
“For the Pets Place Boerenbond formula, I deal with new constructions and renovations projects. It’s super cool to work with well-known formulas and help companies achieve their ambitions. As a Project Engineer, you work behind the scenes as a spider in the web, connecting all the dots. I enjoy the challenge of running several projects simultaneously with short lead times. And at rebuilding projects, one additional challenge is that the shops stay open for customers in the meantime. So you have to work in phases.”
“At Bulsink, you also get space to develop yourself further and pursue your own ambitions. Where do I see myself a few years from now? As a Senior Project Engineer who can coach future engineers.”
Bulsink uses B.U.I.L.D. as its core values: Brand-conscious, Ultra-fast, Inspiring, Leading and Determined. Or in other words: brand-conscious, ultra-fast, inspiring, leading and determined. Can you pick out one or two core values and explain what they mean to you?
“Determined. During a project, you may be faced with all kinds of challenges. But we go the extra mile and get things done.”
“That also says something about me – I’m a goal-oriented, go-getter. I can see that reflected both on a personal level as well as in my work.”
