Team: Secretarial and Support
I specialise in: Permanent positions within the Secretarial & Support Division.
I speak: English, Croatian and Bosnian, with a pinch of Spanish and Italian.
While doing my BA & MA in Speech & Language Pathology and my MSc in Psychology, I got a very good understanding of languages, human behaviour and communication in general. Having studied job satisfaction for my most recent dissertation in psychology, I realised how important it is to be fully satisfied at the workplace, and how this reflects on the personal life and growth. Working in recruitment is exciting and fascinating, it has allowed me to expand my practical knowledge of organisational psychology and sales.
