Our new colleague introduces herself

My name is Simone, I am 46 years young and have been working at MCX since last summer. I came across this growing company through a job coach. This coach thought the vacancy for (financial) administrative employee suited me and after consultation she made contact between MCX and me.

The first meeting was very relaxed, we chatted for almost 1.5 hours! So a really warm welcome. The days that followed were exciting; did I have a new job or not? Fortunately, the good news finally came and I started working in mid-July.

I am mainly concerned with paying incoming invoices, administering in the accounting program, scanning files and adding them to the program. I also prepare outgoing invoices so that they only need to be checked and sent to our customers. In addition, I keep records about the power consumption and waste of MCX. Every now and then I get a separate sorting job, which I like to do.

In my spare time I like to go out with my camera to capture all the beauty around me. I have a hybrid camera and since last year I have a digital single-lens reflex camera and from my first snapshot I absolutely love nature photography. I even have a website where many of my photos can be seen. (

Besides photographing nature, I also like to run. For example, twice a week I walk around ten kilometers in and around the beautiful forests of Apeldoorn. In February I will participate in the midwinter marathon, together with a number of colleagues who have also signed up. I also enjoy having a drink on a terrace with friends every now and then.

In mijn vrije tijd ga ik graag met mijn fotocamera op pad om al het moois om mij heen vast te leggen. Ik heb een hybride camera en sinds vorig jaar heb ik er een digitale spiegelreflexcamera bij en vanaf mijn eerste kiekje ben ik helemaal weg van natuurfotografie. Ik heb zelfs een website waarop veel van mijn foto’s te zien zijn. (

Naast het fotograferen van de natuur, loop ik er ook graag hard. Zo loop ik twee keer per week een rondje van ongeveer tien kilometer in en om de prachtige bossen van Apeldoorn. In februari doe ik mee met de midwinter marathon, samen met een aantal collega’s die zich ook hebben opgegeven. Ook vind ik het gezellig om af en toe een terrasje te pakken met vrienden en vriendinnen.
