Director Human Resources: Esmé Valk

'Human Resources is very rewarding, especially at Schiphol. Together with a dynamic team, I enjoy contributing to the development of our employees and to Schiphol as an organisation. We also fulfil an important role in society. This includes working together with our business partners to create sustainable employment at the airport, in good times and bad. My job is therefore very varied, especially after this period of Covid. Having two young children means that my travels so far have been limited to Europe, but there are beautiful places here too. The delicious food, gorgeous beaches, friendly people and lovely countryside – I can fully relax and unwind when I'm in Portugal.'
