Connect on LinkedIn today:

‘Having worked with a number of recruiters over the years, there are a handful who stand out, Anika is one of them.Her personality is vibrant, she’s engaging, intelligent, and most importantly she asks meaningful questions in order to understand our business. She’s always positive and amicable, even when she’s pushing for an answer, I never felt pressured, as she does it with style, humour and grace.

 Anika makes my role easier as when she says that she has a “rocket”, I know that I can trust that they will be a great fit for our organisation, therefore, she’s an extension of our team. I would highly recommend Anika and intend to maintain in contact with her for any hard to fill roles in Sweden and beyond wherever possible.’ Global Head of HR for Insight

My story!

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!
