People Story: Ernst-Jan

Managing Consultant

We caught up with Ernst-Jan to talk about life at Keylane and get the inside track on some new and exciting developments coming to Keylane’s Lifetime platform.

Check out the full story below.

Can you tell us a bit about yourself?

My name’s Ernst-Jan Strijker, I’m 51 years young and live with my lovely wife Danielle and son Aidan. I grew up in Veendam, a province of Groningen, and am now living in the beautiful city of Utrecht (though maybe not quite as beautiful as Groningen!).

I’ve been employed by Keylane for over 14 years, and am based at the Rotterdam office within the Life & Pension business line. Currently my role is Managing Consultant for our fantastic Lifetime platform.

What do you most enjoy about your role as a Managing Consultant for Keylane’s Lifetime Platform?

My role as Managing Consultant for Keylane’s Lifetime Platform is especially diverse, so no day is ever same. I really enjoy having close client contact and devising solutions to drive better experiences for our clients. I’m able to work 95% independently without being dependent on developers, which helps me come up with ready-made solutions that grant immediate client benefits.

I also really enjoy coaching new colleagues and teaching them the tricks of the trade, and love participating in sales processes by giving demos and explanations about the Lifetime Platform. In all I do, I really try to make our clients enthusiastic.

Why would you recommend Keylane to potential applicants?

First of all, and perhaps most importantly, working at Keylane is incredibly fun. And, within the Lifetime Platform division, we see very challenging projects on the horizon for the coming years. Lifetime will be getting a whole new look and feel, so it’s an exciting time to work for Keylane!

In addition, the atmosphere among colleagues is extremely good and although we work hard, we leave plenty of room to have fun. For example, the communal lunch is a very pleasant break in the day with excellent food options, and the frequent office get-togethers are always a joy.
