Seuss Recruitment TeamMeet the matchmakers
Meet Our Team!
Seuss recruiters are life-science industry experts who focus on finding the most synergistic fit between companies and professionals using the ancient art of match-making with a modern twist. We value life-changing career placements and we treat clients and candidates as people, not numbers. The right match improves both the company and the life of its new employee, and there is no greater satisfaction than that. Meet the Seuss Recruitment team below.
What makes us special?
Our international focus—with a team fluent in 15+ languages—gives us a wider talent pool to draw from and helps keep you connected with other offices and the wider world. Each of our recruiters has lived abroad, and understands the challenges of moving to a new country and working across borders.
We’re professionals in the industry above all else. We understand your business.
However, that doesn’t stop us from being (in)famously friendly!
However, we understand how important it is to be respectful of your company’s particular needs and culture. We are chameleons, understanding how to fit in (and find those who fit in) in any work environment.
Growing a business, moving into overseas territory or starting the next phase of your career are exciting, but blended with that excitement is some risk, and that’s something that Sabine understands and appreciates when she works with Seuss Recruitment clients. She’s been there – both professionally and personally. Sabine came to Europe from the United States with a couple of suitcases, eager to dive into the unfamiliar cultures, so she knows all the emotions that come with new adventures. She also knows that it’s best to navigate new territory with trusted advisers, and she sees trust as the core of the relationships she builds with her clients. Professionals looking to make a career move know that she will never pressure them into a position just to make a placement. Firms looking for help with business plans know that she has the industry knowledge and experience to get their business to the next level. And with her natural, American “can-do” attitude and understanding of US and EU business culture, Sabine makes European expansion as natural as opening a new shop across town.

Ula thoroughly believes that we don’t meet people by accident, that they are meant to cross our paths for a reason. Cliché as it may sound, she sees joining Seuss as the perfect example. She found out about Seuss because she was a reference for a newly hired employee. But she was so charmed by the energy, people and business philosophy – a unique mix she had not seen before in pharma and biotech recruitment – that she joined the team herself as well! For Ula, recruitment is about meeting people and pairing them with their ideal professional career. She believes that at Seuss she can change lives, and have an impact on the life-sciences industry. She’s proud to work with companies at the forefront of innovation. She sees Seuss as more than just a workplace, but an environment to indulge her passion for exploring new worlds. As she loves cycling and traveling, she feels very at home in Amsterdam and enjoys discovering the city, its well-known music festivals and cultural life – but most of all, she looks forward to discovering the next set of eager candidates looking for new careers in the healthcare industry. Her motto: “Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” (Albert Einstein)
“To travel through time – to explore the past and see the birth of the world’s greatest achievements, and to discover what the future holds.”

“I wish I had the innate capability to know and understand something (such as all of the new exciting developments in the life sciences industry) without the need to study it.”
Nora boldly seeks out challenging experiences that push the boundaries of what she has done before. She believes that overcoming fear gives you the confidence to explore the constraints of what you imagine you can do. This is the confidence boost you need to fuel the ambition, daring and self-belief that will make all the difference in your career and help you find your real passion. Originally from Hungary, Nora has so far lived, worked and studied in six different countries on three continents. Nora loves to “think big,” and during her studies she conducted extensive research into the success of female business leaders. Her undergraduate education provided a strong foundation in Human Resources, and Nora added to this by developing a firm understanding of change management and organizational structure while obtaining her Master’s of Science in Business Administration with a specialization in Strategy and Organization from the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. Her international experiences, curiosity about people and companies, and excitement for challenges, drove her to become a life-sciences matchmaker. Her goal at Seuss Recruitment is to help others to excel in their new companies and deliver growth.
“My chosen superpower would be the ability to live each and every moment to its fullest, in this way spreading more compassion, love and happiness to all.”
Some people might say Frank’s resume is illogical: he’s an art historian currently working as a pharma/biotech recruiter. He used to work for the Dutch Labour Party, and during his studies, he took part on local committees. Now, in addition to his recruitment work at Seuss, he’s working on a book and a blog about his vision on the Millennial generation. Working as a Recruiter at Seuss in the Pharma/Biotech industry allows him to capitalize on his inquisitive side. He is eager to connect with people and learn how they react to the world around them. You can say he’s an investigator of interpersonal behavior who truly uses all of his past experiences to support those candidates still looking for that perfect professional fit. He’s not the stereotypical sales-driven recruiter; his ultimate concern is not a target, but to help his clients find the right job. At Seuss he feels like a recruiter rock star, but he’s still simply Frank: down to earth and ready to explore new possibilities.
“My superpower would be telepathy, so that I could truly get to know people.”
