Recruitment Manager, Telespazio VEGA UK


Pursue the things that interest you.

What do you do?

Helping to bring new talent into the Telespazio business, and support career growth of those already working with either Telespazio VEGA UK or the wider group.

Why did you choose this field?

I've always been curious about people, but didn't really expect to end up working in HR/Recruitment - I had originally wanted to be a Doctor, so was STEM oriented in my education choices. I went on to study Psychology at University and fell into recruitment shortly after. My background in sciences meant I specialised in recruiting for Pharmaceutical Clinical research, before generalising out across a number of other sectors. I was fortunate a little over a year ago to see the opportunity to work with a company in the Space sector and get to put my stamp on their processes and hiring from the inside as their internal recruitment manager.

What do you look at and think, "I wish younger me would have known this was possible"?

My current role! Getting to lead process, and drive change for a global company, working in one of the fastest moving and innovative sectors available.

Why do you love working in STEM?

I love working with people who are so passionate about their work and the tasks and challenges ahead of them.

Best advice for next generation?

Pursue the things that interest you - no matter how diverse they may be, or if you're the first person in your family/country/the world to think about it
