May I introduce myself?

My name is Linda Hesseling and recently I am a part of the MCX team. Even in these crazy times, I received a warm welcome. For example, during my job interviews I was able to speak extensively about my passion for HR and at the office there was mutual curiosity that made me even more enthusiastic. The growth of MCX had created space for a new HR business partner, a position that I am only too happy to fill.

At MCX I will be involved in recruiting and negotiating with new employees, personnel administration, laws and regulations and based on that, I form step-by-step plans in order to give advice. Someone who takes care of HR matters for MCX and the employees so that they can do what they are good at; IT!

After two university bachelors and two university masters (of which Business Administration: HRM was the last), I worked as a recruiter, consultant, HR assistant and then as an HR specialist. In short: theoretical studies with a practical approach, and practical work experience with a theoretical approach.


In my spare time I like to put on my roller skates and put on “roller skating music”, or put on my most colorful sports outfit and dance to Zumba music. Since I also teach this, I might be able to teach my colleagues some Zumba knowledge too!

I live in the center of Apeldoorn with my boyfriend. We have a lovely roof terrace where you can sit with a book or with friends. In rain and wind we prefer to sit inside and compete with each other in a game of Carcassonne or Catan.

But best of all, I like to stand on top of a snowy mountain, tie my snowboard under my boots so that I can carve down a freshly groomed slope… or go off-piste to make fresh tracks in the deep snow on a challenging mountain slope. There is nothing better than the breathtaking view, the fresh mountain air and of course the fun!
