Tell us a bit about what drives your career.
The endless possibilities generated by
technology in particular and science, in general, are keeping me curious and
help me develop further by attempting to keep the pace.
I’m not the kind of person that has a long-term
career path in mind. I’ve been more focused on developing my abilities rather
than achieving a certain position or status. I still don’t know where this will

Tell us more about yourself outside of work.
I’ve always had a
desire to improve myself, and I was still very focused on helping people
Maybe this is why, in
parallel to my office job, I’m also a psychotherapist.
I’ve been an acting
psychotherapist for the past one and a half years. I’m doing integrative
psychotherapy and somatic experiencing. I’m working with my clients, helping
them through different trauma cases, anxiety, depression, dysfunctional
relationships, phobias, and more.
I want to help people
of Endava as well, within the organisation, not only in the psychological
cabinet. What I’ve aimed for so far is to inspire the people around me to share
the same passion for IT recruitment as myself.
It’s always a challenge
to combine the two. I simply can’t choose one or the other. IT recruitment
keeps me up to date with the evolution of the world we live in, it keeps me
close to the newest trends out there, while therapy brings me closer to people
and keeps me well rooted to the ground.
In Endava, I’m practicing
my skills of being organised, structured, as well as leadership, and
communication with groups. At the same time, in therapy, I am focused on
developing compassion, openness, warmth as well as communication with
individuals one by one.
What would you tell a person who just graduated and wants to join our industry?
Keep your eyes and ears open. Before making any choice in any of the professional areas you will decide to pursue, try to know yourself! Be aware of your values, your competencies, your natural gifts, but at the same time allow yourself to experiment, welcoming what opportunities arise with the goal of discovering what you truly like, and, more importantly, who you truly are.
