Every month we’re sitting down with a member of the Velez team and asking them a series of questions so you can get to know them better!

This month’s Feature Friday is our HR & Recruitment Manager, Kleodora Brahimi.

Work Related Questions

What is your role at Velez? 

-HR & Recruitment Manager 

What does your typical workday involve? (day to day duties) 

I try to manage the time during the day and do a bit of everything. The first thing in the morning is greeting the team and ensuring everyone is coming with a cheered-up face (If not it is my primary duty to do so😊). Then check my emails and if anything, urgent deal with it, otherwise I go with the things I have already planned like writing new documents or analyzing a new idea (using morning break).  We usually spend lunch all together and try not to talk about work. After lunch, I do administrative duties and have at least one individual chat with any of the team members. However, my day is never the same, there is always something new that I need to deal with.  

What do you enjoy most about your role at Velez?  

Cooperating with the team, work atmosphere, the interesting duties I got (which never get boring), the freedom I got for managing my work. 

What motivates you at work? 

There is nothing that demotivated me so far😊 I love my job too much and hopefully, it will go like this further on.
