As an Office Manager & Management Assistant at Orbisk, you are responsible for performing various activities in the office and the human resource department. By doing so, you ensure a healthy and structured working environment. As the Management Assistant, you are the right hand of the CEO and Managment Team and help with diverse responsibilities.

You are the person that makes the office run smoothly. You are the first potential contact for employees with questions about employment conditions, such as salaries, holidays and the pension scheme. But also make sure everybody feels at home in our office and that people feel the freedom to be and express themselves. You provide guidance with facility matters and organize the lunch (no food waste of course! ;)). Aside from that, you arrange the organization of small and larger (team) events. You also support the Management Team and CEO with varying tasks to support the MT, differing from sorting out and researching specific issues, managing agenda's and scheduling specific meetings. You help with the (financial) administration and sort incoming mails in the general mailbox: some you pick up yourself, others you send over to a colleague or you delete them.

You work in the People Team, which consist of an Head of People and People Recruiter.

If you enjoy working with different people on an operational and strategic level, and you don’t mind having to structure your daily task well, then this the job for you.

Working week

Office Manager & Management Assistant

On a nice day, you partake in different activities: you arrange a new team event, and you make sure everything is in order for when two new employees will start at the office.

On a lesser day, you miss an interesting lead in the mailbox. Also, you receive a disappointing reaction to the lunch because some things were not in stock.

Firsthand experience

The sales employees have several appointments a week, and thus have been promised a car at their disposal. How do you sort this out?

First, you look for a suitable lease company. You construct the conditions in a way that makes clear who is and is not eligible to get a car. Then, you investigate the options and conditions. You request information, research the financial picture, and eventually come up with a proposal. You take into consideration how sustainable the options are, and if employees will have to contribute to the cars themselves.

Eventually, you present your final options to the MT, who will make the final decision.


At Orbisk, there are several opportunities to grow as an employee. Various courses are offered, allowing you to develop yourself optimally. You work in a fresh and creative start-up, where everyone wants to learn from each-other. Everyone has his own specialisation. In the coming years, the organisation will also focus on international growth, which means that more and more new positions will become available.

Why did you decide to work for this company?
Because I wanted (and want) to use the abilities I have to solve for real and big world problems! As one of the founders, I never had to apply. Still, I apply a little bit every time I recruit new team members, because it has to be a mutual match, so we have just as much of a duty to tell our story well to you!

Lola Slager - Sales Manager

Why did you decide to work for this company?
Before this, I worked in the retail and out-of-home segment for soft drinks. Here I discovered that I liked the out-of-home channel the most, but I missed not being able to deliver a positive impact for a better future. Then Orbisk came my way where I found sales, out-of-home and sustainability, the perfect combination for me.

Brand Manager.

What do you do in your spare time?
