Recruitment Consultant

Hi, I`m Silvia. I began my working career as a hairdresser in the late 80`s in my home city of Adelaide. After almost 20 years on the floor including taking some time off to have my daughter Georgia, I changed direction slightly to the training side of hairdressing by taking on a role as a Facilitator with Sherman`s Hairdressing Academy. In 2010, between home renovations and regular trips to our favourite family holiday spot, Bali, it was time for a career change. I progressed down the training/education path with roles in a few federal and state funded VET/Vocational Learning and Apprenticeship Programs. Here I caught the education bug myself and completed an Advanced Diploma of Management and an Advanced Diploma of Management (Human Resources). My next role was Operations Manager with VETnetwork Australia where I was responsible for all HR requirements including the recruitment and induction of new staff. More recently after taking some time off to travel and refine my Yogi skills, I`m very excited to come full circle and return back to my hairdressing origins with the team here at National Salon and Spa Recruitment. I look forward to supporting our clients and help in finding the perfect staff for their teams.
