Traineeships Professionals


Pieter explains how SPARCK came about:

“SPARCK was born of a passion for IT and an understanding that IT involves human interaction which can be organized more fairly and effectively. In my role as IT Director at Albert Heijn, I took enormous satisfaction from helping trainees and professionals. I was also involved in the search for candidates. How do I get started, what drives me, what is my passion? I’m delighted to play a role in that and empower other individuals.”

SPARCK offers a platform for talent. For trainees and professionals. It’s like uncorking a bottle of fine wine. Doing honest business, whilst providing exciting prospects.
