A stress-free transition to a dream job at the European Space Agency

Antonios Perdikis works for Modis as an IT Buyer since April 2019. Before that he worked for a bank in Greece where he specialised in IT and telecommunications structure for more than three years. After a Modis Recruiter scouted him for the role of IT buyer at the European Space Research and Technology Centre (ESTEC), the decision to seize this opportunity was a no-brainer. 'Working with Europe's leading talents in an international environment and being part of an organisation with such a rich history, is a dream come true.'

"Modis contacted me and helped me complete the whole application process without a hitch. The fact that they made an offer which linked up perfectly with my professional wishes encouraged me to take the plunge. And it was quite a step because I had to relocate from Greece to the Netherlands and they were brilliant at helping me with that as well. Besides the fact that starting a new life is quite a challenge, finding accommodation was, for example, far from easy. Thanks to the help I received, the process was almost stress-free. Modis played a key role in me making this decision.

I'm now working as an IT Buyer. I'm happy in my job but, more than anything, the environment in which cooperation and initiative are rewarded suits me down to the ground.

Because the job has an international focus I am learning a lot about dealing with different cultures. Of course I’m also learning a great deal about my profession. The fact that I'm a member of a team of talented and specialised people means I'm able to function to the best of my abilities. I have set myself the goal of continuing to develop both professionally and as a person. I want to learn new skills and competencies at ESA, but I also want to take projects I'm involved in to the highest level. Everyone here is working to achieve optimal results. I'm convinced that you develop fastest at a multinational such as the ESA and I therefore believe it was well worth the effort to relocate.”
