With Eurostaff opening its first office in the Nordics, basing itself in Stockholm, we’ll be taking some time with the team to find out about their careers, markets and motivations. We hope this mini-series of interviews gives you an insight into the members of our team who are connecting people to opportunity throughout Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark. Anything else you want to know about our team? Get in touch!
Our Head of Senior Appointments Anika Bakrania tells us more below:
After graduating with a 2.1 in Psychology I was approached by an agency to join the world of technology recruitment, which I took up the offer of! Like 99% of rookies I had no idea what I had signed up for! However, one year later I found myself winning ‘Rookie of the Year!’
Three years later I am heading up the Executive Search Team in Eurostaff’s new Stockholm office and living a completely different life! I really have experienced such fabulous opportunities that I never thought I would be achieving just a few years down the line.
Focus areas in our new office in Stockholm…
As Head of Senior Appointments across the Nordic region, my remit covers Global pre and post IPO vendors, service providers and leaders in FinTech services all ranging from series A/B funding to 1.5 billion euro dominators. The most critical hires for any of these organisations are their leaders and their sales teams and they must be of a high quality to ensure success.
I have recently been retained on SVP, Sales Directors & Senior Pre-Sales positions ranging from 1.2MSEK up to 2.9MSEK packages. A lot of my time covers executive level roles however my core technology areas are across Cloud and Security.
What will success look like in 2018?
Having the opportunity to be part of the first Nordic office for Eurostaff; a multi-million-pound leader in recruitment is extremely exciting and of course motivating! Our Nordic team, are looking to continue increase our market share, empower some fresh talent in our teams and build a world class diverse division of search professionals that delivers a service that really makes a difference. We have a solid team opening the office in Stockholm and are looking forward to a successful (with many glasses of wine needed I’m sure) first year in 2018!
