'Passion is a condition’
‘Inspired by Life means that you develop and produce products that help improve the self-reliance of the user. It also implies that you look beyond the drawing board. You must always see the individual person in relation to his or her functional impairment and need. To do this it is essential that all the parties involved work together closely.’ Michel Hulst, Sales Director (right)

‘I’d had my eye on Life & Mobility for some time’
‘A friend of mine works here too. I sometimes used to go with her during open days and I really liked the company. But of course there had to be a vacancy. After a tip from my friend, things developed fast. I love working here. Making something from nothing... and the variety... a really great job!’ Marion van Huet, Assembly Department

'As long as you put the end user first you can’t go far wrong here'
‘Life & Mobility’s philosophy is my philosophy too. In my job as Retail Manager I can contribute my ideas and opinions on this. This attitude suits me down to the ground. Most mobility aids are sold through a dealer. On the other hand, Life & Mobility can act fast and listens attentively to its customers. I think these are fine qualities. Life & Mobility guarantees quality. Our job is to convey this quality awareness to decision-makers in the care sector. The people at Life & Mobility are committed. As long as you put the end user first you can’t go far wrong here.' Marcel de Boer, Retail Manager
'The atmosphere is excellent and everyone is willing to help each other'
‘With my degree in facility management I have a very versatile education and there are plenty of openings. First I gained a lot of knowledge and experience and then I had the chance to further my career. So I'm in the right place here. The atmosphere is excellent and everyone is willing to help each other. And we make a great product that helps people and that’s what I love.' Leonie Hendriks, Key Accounts Manager Purchase
'As colleagues we inspire each other and contribute ideas for improving processes'
‘I used to work at Defence before I came here. I was group leader there in the warehouse and naturally that was good experience for my work at Life & Mobility. What I like most about working at Life & Mobility? The collaboration with all the departments. You never feel like you’re alone. Inspired by Life is also all of us being inspired by the culture here at work.' Rob Schadron, Logistics Manager
'We are a dynamic company with plenty of hard-working young people'
‘First as a temporary employee and then with a real employment contract at Life & Mobility at the Sales Department. Before this I was branch manager in the retail trade, but this is much more challenging. Helping people with disabilities to function as normally as possible is a very positive basis, I think. I learn something new here every day. We are a dynamic company with plenty of hard-working young people who ensure that Life & Mobility grows.’ Marike Jansen, Internal Sales Adviser
