Personal Pitch

Depuis bientôt 10 ans, je participe à l'aventure AssessFirst ! J'ai ainsi pu développer différentes compétences sur des multiples sujets (Management, Marketing, stratégie sales). Je suis passionné par les stratégies et les organisations qui permettent de faire grandir une entreprise tant sur le plan du Chiffre d'affaires que sur le plan humain. Aujourd'hui, mon combat est de faire évoluer les pratiques de recrutement à travers le monde. Je pense que la technologie nous permet d'offrir à chaque candidat un système de recrutement plus équitable et performant !

What environment will he thrive in?

Alexandre Collignon needs to develop in a work context which values personal results and accomplishments. He seeks an environment that is flexible enough to adapt to his development and prioritises innovation, but the flexibility must not hinder the attainment of fixed objectives. He is ready to accept stricter rules if they better allow him to coordinate and ensure the aims of the organisation. Having a routine and stable work context is difficult for him to manage. He needs to be stimulated by his environment to maintain his commitment, and to be able to observe concrete developments in the results obtained.

Problems he can deal with

Brilliant from an intellectual point of view, Alexandre Collignon tends to easily adapt concepts that were initially foreign. He is able to understand new or complex subjects without needing to see them in practice. This means he can develop his skills by researching and reading about a diverse range of subjects. He needs to be intellectually stimulated by his work, without which he may get bored quickly.

Alexandre Collignon's spontaneous temperament leads him to learn by testing concepts and techniques himself. For him, the best way to acquire new knowledge is to try, develop understanding through failure, then start again. He sometimes lacks patience. To integrate new ideas or new knowledge, he first needs to experiment by himself.
