Who are you?

My name is Liibaan and I am 31 years old. I come from Somali where I fled from the war. 

How did you end up at Lentink? Was technology already advertised then? From school or else?

Via the Anton Tijdinkschool, Riometaal where I did an internship  I was subsequently placed at the Lentink employment agency. Through Malte (head of department press) I have learned a lot and I am still learning in different departments.

It's really beautiful here!

How long have you been working at Lentink now?

Another anecdote or nice experience within Lentink that you would like to share with us?

I don't have one, but what I want to say is that I came here with 20% knowledge and have already learned 90% knowledge. At Lentink you can learn a lot from each other. My Somali friends are a bit jealous of what Lentink does for his employees and for me.

Do you see the company improve and grow?

Very positive, the last Christmas gift was  regarded by everyone as really crazy and also the summer drink and Christmas dinner were received very positively. I was really happy with that. My Somali friends are jealous of me and also want to work at Lentink. It is an advertisement for Lentink to anyone who wants to work.

Do you have a personal wish regarding the company?

Staying a healthy business and  become even larger 

How would you recommend people outside of Lentink to opt for technology?
