Managing Director Poland - Feed Sector (rekrutacja zakończona)Poland. Relocation close to the HQ will be requested
23/09: Piotr Dawidzki did not have a good day during the meeting with Richard (CEO), howver, Jonathan told he made good impression, but they decided to continue with a candidate from their network/ Cargill as the focus for now has to be on procurement rather than on sales. They were pretty convinced about their own candidate from the beginning, this search needed to be done anonymously, which didn't really help in convincing candidates on that level. We also had another strong candidate (Adam), but Jonathan seems to prefer people with the same personality as he has: dynamic, extravert and honest - it went wrong for other candidates on the extravert part
