Meet our Flexers
Hi, I’m Konrad, a Veteran of the Parachute Regiment and Head Chef at Indeed Flex. I started at Indeed Flex as a Chef de Partie. Then, after climbing the ladder, I soon became a Sous Chef. I also got verified as a Head Chef, recently. Indeed Flex gave me the opportunity to work with different people in different places - it really doesn’t feel like normal work.
Head Chef at Indeed Flex
Being a reservist, you need flexibility, and Indeed Flex provides you with just that, ensuring veterans and reservists are cared for through the entire hiring process and thereafter. As a reservist, I'm trained to drive every type of vehicle within our unit. Once my training is done, I’ll be able to drive trucks and vans and pick up driver roles, too, with Indeed Flex.
Warehouse Operative at Indeed Flex
I joined the military in 2007 in a healthcare administration role and, after completing my training, I was deployed to Afghanistan. Indeed Flex helps soldiers transfer their military skills to civilian life by offering training and the flexibility to learn on different platforms. I’ve been able to utilise a number of skills for my current role such as time management, organisation, team work, and integrity.
