Head of HR
Karin Schneider Head of HR

As a Head of HR I look after employees at Surplex from A to Z and also make sure to find the right applicants for the Surplex team. In 2011, during my Masters in Education, I discovered my passion for HR work within a student job at the University of Cologne. Especially the mix of administrative topics, projects and working with people is what I enjoy. I like to spend my spare time with my husband on extensive walks, creatively at the sewing machine, on Instagram and behind the camera or on city trips.

What’s so charming about working in HR is to be able to accompany the entire employee lifecycle. Not only will you become a psychologist or coach but also an employee’s companion. No matter what the urge is, our door and ears are always open. The foundation for my passion for HR and current functioning started during my student job in 2016 and continued to grow in the following years. Outside of work I love to travel and visit my host family in the USA as much as possible. Otherwise, you will find me in the dance studio on Wednesday’s and on the weekend with friends and family or relaxing on the sofa.

HR Generalist
Verena Williams HR Generalist

My great interest in human resources arose from my business studies at Paderborn University as well as various internships and working student positions in this field. I am particularly enthusiastic about the fact that you can make such an important difference for applicants and employees as a guide and signpost. After initially working mainly in recruiting and applicant management at Surplex GmbH, I am now responsible for supporting employees as a generalist. In my private life, I love traveling and exploring new places. I also enjoy cooking, spending time with family and friends, squash and badminton.

Junior Talent Acquisition Manager
Alexander Chalal Junior Talent Acquisition Manager

Almost nothing influences our lives more than our profession. I quickly realized this during my studies in social sciences and dedicated myself to recruiting and HR after graduating. Accompanying people when they start a new job and creating the conditions for a productive start to a new challenge is what fascinates me about my work. In my free time, I enjoy music, cooking and I'm (almost) good at it, I'm a Bundesliga fan and I do a few more things.
