We take very little time in getting each other understood and this helps in achieving a very strong and effective collaboration. After a number of years she now knows our environment very well and therefore helps us find the right match. It is always a pleasure to work together.

Trevor BezzinaDivision Manager

I have been working with Serena for several years. Many recruiters have come and gone during this time but Serena is still one of the first people I will brief for a role. She is always personable and professional to work with and I particularly like she treats her candidates with the same respect as she does with the employers. Serena is very professional, focused and reliable. She is organised and you can rely on her to get the work done. She will ensure that all stakeholders are happy and comfortable with whatever process she is managing or involved in.

Gianbattista Bufalino, HR Manager and PhD in HR Management, Leadership, Educational Leadership

Serena was leading recruitment consultant within my assessment phases. She has been a pleasure to work with, bringing her attention to detail to any information need it. Her communication and people skills are excellent, and she has great approach talking with candidates. Serena was available for me in anytime need it, with right information, positive attitude and good energy. She is an intelligent, capable, dedicated, and personable lady. She would be an asset to any organization and I wholeheartedly recommend her.

Gradimir NovakovicSenior Infrastructure Architect

Serena contacted me with regard to a potential career opportunity for me and I expressed my interest in the role. Serena then took charge of the situation and organised an interview for me. In doing so, she was very diligent, making sure to ask me all the relevant questions and even meeting up with me beforehand to prepare me for the interview process. Once the interviews were over, Serena also followed up with the interviewers and sent me the offer. Since the job was precisely what I was after and the offer met my expectations, I accepted it. Serena then followed up with me and met with me a second time to guide me through the process of resigning from my then current job. With the above in mind, I wholeheartedly recommend Serena. Not only did she find me a job that met all my expectations, she also guided me throughout the entire process – from the initial interview up to and including resigning from the then current job. I found her to be very approachable and helpful every step of the way and this made the process much easier for me.

Joseph BorgSenior Technical Architect

I was browsing through the market (in a matter of speaking) for new opportunities, Serena presented me with a few options and guided me through the whole process from start to finish. I feel that Serena is an amazing professional and mentor.

Testimonials for Kate

Kate is one of the best HR professionals I’ve ever worked with. She carefully led me through a process of finding a perfect position, accommodating both my and employer’s needs. I particularly thankful to Kate for tactful and quick responses to any of my concerns or doubts. An absolute pleasure to work with.

Anastasia Paukste Front-end Developer

her name should be a qualification level in itself when ICT recruitment is concerned.

My case? 30+ years of professional software development, managerial positions, broad experience. Aspects that don’t suit well in the current ICT market in Malta. And yet…

Although we met face-to-face only after the facts, she managed to find a position that suits so well with my experience and way of being that it seems a little miracle.

A woman’s intuition? Certainly also an excellent professionalism. I don’t believe in miracles.
And she had to insist. 1.5 years of unsuccessful job applications forced me to focus on other ways of earning my life in ICT. Successfully. Not wasting time with other interviews.
Fortunately Kate managed to convince me to go to that first one.

And I thank her for that.

Ronald PoellSoftware Developer

Kate has been assisting with numerous recruitment processes and her recommendations are always spot on.
She is highly available, she has excellent communication skills and she is a pleasure to work with.
Keep up the good work, Kate!
