‘This office is an incentive for me to learn more’
Learning within a business. Actively addressing issues, so that you master them quickly. That is how Sharon Potma has managed to win herself a permanent place in the offices of the Guido de Wit law firm in a short space of time. ‘I’m curious and I like absorbing information quickly. This office is an incentive for me to learn more.
I started as a payroll clerk at a firm of accountants, in line with my qualifications. I then worked for a large publisher, where my job as a human resources adviser brought me into contact with labour law. I had a great deal of affinity with that and when I was asked if I wanted to start here as a bankruptcy assistant, I had no doubts at all. Obviously, I don’t do court cases, but I provide assistance on all fronts whenever it’s needed. The dynamic in this office is very attractive to me. It’s an environment where there’s always something happening. I’m happy with this chance and the scope to develop myself further. I have now moved up to become the Office Manager. I’m not happy until everything is running smoothly, no mistakes have been made and we have also had fun together. Perfectionist? Yes, you could say that…’
