Head of RPO Services & Workforce Solutions
An experienced recruitment director with over twenty years of international recruitment experience with fifteen years focused on Satellite Communications and Space. Core background has been working with entrepreneurial minded professionals helping them to scale-up technology start-ups across the globe.
Within Sapienza my role is taking responsibility for executing our talent acquisition strategy so that our recruitment team are able to attract, evaluate and hire the best talent in the industry for Sapienza and our key customers.
As well as the talent strategy, I’m responsible for all new business within the NewSpace and Satcom domain.
Having worked within recruitment for the last 14 years, I have been eager to work more within the Space sector and mix my personal interest of the Space industry with my technical skill within recruitment.
When I’m not stopping my two children from causing chaos, I enjoy American Football, playing Defensive Back and acting as club secretary for my local American Football team the Solent Thrashers. I play the Ukulele, enjoy film, and have a perfectly healthy passion for trainers (despite what my wife says).
I am looking forward to working with our clients to help grow their business and expand and develop the Space sector both in the UK and the world.
Office Manager & Senior Recruiter
As a senior recruiter I’m responsible for the delivery into several key RPO customers across Europe and North America. My team predominately helps to scale-up New Space ventures involved in Earth Observation and Satellite Communications.
I’m often filling positions involved in software and hardware engineering, systems engineering, data analytics, cloud computing, sales & marketing and anything EO related. Having spent the last few years in recruitment I instantly got inspired with the human part of it and nowadays I really love and enjoy what I do.
On a personal note, I’m a very active person and lead healthy lifestyle. I used to play handball and have been actively skiing since child. I regularly go hiking and do yoga. If you are looking for new talent or are seeking a change in your career, then please do reach out to me.
A well-set background in human resources with solid insights into the recruitment and training processes. Dedicated and packed with a constant-learning mindset, I can't wait to fully explore the possibilities in the Space sector.
On the side, I am a certified Yoga teacher, practicing and teaching daily, and using the time dedicated to yoga practice as a destressing retreat.
I am a result-oriented recruiter, working in a diverse set of industries. Having an engineering degree helped me to stand out and deliver a different approach to sourcing and screening candidates.
Within Sapienza I work with various RPO customers involved in software and hardware engineering, systems engineering, data analytics, cloud computing, sales & marketing and anything EO related.
When I am not spending the whole weekend watching Netfix, I enjoy a good meal and a crazy party!
I have been working in the space industry for the last 4 and a half years, recruiting software engineers for Ground Segment, Flight Systems, Embedded Software and SSA (Space Situational Awareness) business units. It’s been quite a journey learning new things and developing skills in this emerging sector.
As a recruiter and an HR business partner I mostly enjoyed getting to know so many people, growing and being part of an international team.
I ended up in the HR field by chance and discovered that it is my calling.
Apart from my job, I am a book and coffee addict, I love starting the day with a big cup of coffee and a good reading. I love travelling, discovering new places and I have a passion for foreign languages (I speak Spanish, English, Italian and a little Russian, apart from my mother tongue, Romanian).
I am always learning something new and sharing my knowledge with others.
I am looking forward to building an even stronger space sector.
