Sofia has been appointed to support the consultants in Allen Associates’ HR and Finance recruitment divisions, as well as providing assistance to candidates looking for information or guidance. She joins the consultancy from an intellectual property firm where she worked as a patent secretary.
Commenting on her appointment, Sofia said: “Having received an amazing service from Allen Associates as a candidate working on various temporary assignments, I jumped at the chance to join the team and play a role in offering the same quality of service to other candidates and clients. The recruitment administrator role excited me because it allows me to use my existing skills in customer service and relationship building in more depth, and also provides me with the opportunity to learn and develop new skills.”
Founder and managing director Kate Allen, added: “We are delighted to welcome Sofia on board. As a first class Economics graduate with fluent Spanish and Italian, we are already impressed with her business acumen, international experience, attention to detail and ability to get the job done. Nothing phases her and it’s clear that she’s going to be a real asset.”
