Meet the Recruitment Team - Tuomas

Tell me about yourself.

My name is Tuomas. I’m your typical millennial and have the pleasure of being a Recruiter at Anteriad. I’m Finnish but was born and partially raised in Germany. My partner and I moved to Madrid in September 2020 from Sweden, during the pandemic, to give the Spanish adventure a try. When not recruiting, I enjoy reading fantasy and going tapas-hopping around Calle Cava Baja in the La Latina neighbourhood.

How long have you been at Anteriad?

I started at Anteriad in October 2020 as a Rocker (Business Development Representative) for the German-speaking team. After around 6 months of rocking the phones, I moved into the Recruitment department, starting off as a Junior Recruiter.

What teams do you recruit for?

In general terms, I work to attract and hire talent across our international teams of Business Development Representatives, also known as Rockers. My focus lies on hiring Madrid-based Rockers, as well as talent living and working outside of the Comunidad de Madrid for our German-speaking team of BDRs, which are called Roadies. When needed, I also assist in finding the right fit for our English- and Dutch-/Flemish-speaking teams.

And finally, I help in facilitating any internal recruitment processes that might occur, as well as in filling other external vacancies, depending on our staffing needs. 

What do you look for in candidates?

At the core of a solid Rocker or Roadie profile are the abilitiesto handle challenges, to self-motivate, and to apply the techniques and tricks put forward by our Coaches and Team Leaders. Based on this, we screen candidates for energy, coachability, and a can-do-attitude.

Lastly and most importantly, we’re looking for good People.

As a recruiter, what advice do you have for those interviewing for a Rocker (or Roadie) job?

It’s quite basic really: Be upfront and be yourself.

For the interview, bring pen and paper to take notes, as we tend to provide our candidates with quite a lot of information. Last but not least, be honest with yourself about your own abilities and expectations about the role as a BDR on the phone.

What is your favourite thing about working at Anteriad?

This may sound a bit cliché, but it’s definitely the people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting and working with. With 40 nationalities working in our Spanish office alone, it’s a truly international work environment! And we can be sure that everybody here has an interesting story to tell.
