Tamara Forkapic

Recruitment Specialist

Tamara is our Recruitment specialist for the Nordic market, and the Grinch of the Team (or of the whole Company probably). Worked in different office jobs and different countries, and settled down in multilingual recruitment. She is a bit of a control freak, and cannot have unread emails in her inbox, it's spooky.🦇
Outside of work, she does not like to talk on the phone (8 hours per day is more than enough), and prefers sharing GIFs. 🤷‍♀️

Strengths

She can be sleep-deprived, but still functioning. 👍

Weaknesses

Eating sweets... every day... Ok, maybe every 3 hours. 🍩

Fun Fact

She has a Mary Poppins bag - ask whatever you want, and the bag will have it. 😉

Recruitment Specialist

Marina Spiliotopoulou is the Recruitment Specialist specializing in the Dutch-Italian market. With a background in International and European Studies and experience working for a European Film Festival in Paris, Marina loves exploring new cultures and matchmaking for talent and opportunities. When she's not busy, you might find her planning her next travel adventure or taking long walks with her dog, Oscar

Strengths

Some people (aka Marina) would say that she possesses a good sense of humor. And we agree.

Weaknesses

When she speaks, she might mix up English, French, and Greek within a single sentence.

Fun Fact

Every Monday she is on a new diet.

Anna Zaworska

Recruitment Specialist

Anna is a Recruitment Specialist from Poland. She navigated the chaos of London, embraced the tranquility of a tiny Swedish island of Gotland, now living her best life in sunny Lisbon, where she’s on a mission to single-handedly support the pasteis de nata industry. She enjoys practicing yoga on and off the mat, doing headstands and breathwork, or just being more mindful in her daily life. Oh, and she will 100% stop to snap a picture of every dachshund that she crosses paths with. 

Strengths

Cool, calm, collected. 

Weaknesses

Mortal enemy of bananas. Will run away from any bird (yes, even a sparrow)

Fun Fact

She skydived once (and threw up after)

Fani Komitopoulou

Recruitment Specialist

Meet Fani, one of our Nordic Recruitment Specialists. She's a team player who loves forging strong professional bonds. With the motto "everything happens for a reason”, Fani always finds the silver lining, even when the skies are stormy. A true multitasker, she spends her mornings hunting down top Nordic talents and her afternoons teaching Greek. Yes, she's basically a recruitment hunter by day and a language guru by night!

Strengths

She’s so good with words, even Siri asked her for advice.

Weaknesses

She cannot live without sugar and coffee after lunch.

Fun Fact

Her lunchbox is so cool, it’s basically the office celebrity.

Carlos Mercado
Recruitment Specialist

Carlos Mercado

Recruitment Specialist

Carlos, our Recruitment Specialist at the Lisbon office, initially set his sights on the skies with a passion for aviation. However, he found his true calling in recruitment, where his quick thinking and unwavering loyalty make him a valued asset. Despite his dedication to work, Carlos is a self-professed travel enthusiast, with a passport that's seen more action than a bestseller. Having lived abroad since a tender age, Carlos embodies an open-mindedness that transcends borders.

Strengths

Carlos's ability to think on his feet and his unwavering loyalty make him not only a dependable worker but also a steadfast friend.

Weaknesses

However, Carlos has a soft spot for vacations that he simply can't resist. When wanderlust calls, he's always ready to answer, sometimes at the expense anything.

Fun Fact

Carlos has filled up his passport not once, but twice, with stamps from far-flung destinations, a testament to his insatiable wanderlust.
