Tell Us About Your Educational Journey & Prior Industry Experience. What Motivated You To Foray Into The Field Of HR? What Are Your Roles And Responsibilities As A Founder & How Do You Deal With The Challenges Related To It?
I graduated from London Guildhall University with a BA in Business and majored in HR. Here, I discovered a passion for all aspects of people development. I wanted to use my business expertise to have an impact on people’s lives. To advance my career, I studied for the CIPD while working in recruitment, which helped me to gain further experience.
I've always been aware of the glass ceiling that limits women's access to high positions and am proactive to close the gender wage gap and this was my motivation factor.
As the company's founder, I'm responsible for strategy, marketing, finance, human resource, technology, and operations functional areas of business. Since global recruitment is so complex, we must guarantee that all our policies and procedures adhere to established norms of conduct and that we are up to date on local legislation. Many unanticipated changes have occurred in recent years, but it is essential to continue to adapt to the environment.
What Was The Underlying Ideas Which Led To The Foundation Of Nova International? How Do You Foresee The Global HR Industry Evolving Shortly? What Is Your Vision For The Nova International Group’s Next Phase Of Growth?
While working in international recruitment for over twenty years, I've seen a lot of people in situations where they're underperforming - potentially because they weren't recruited into the correct roles, to begin with. I'm passionate about ensuring that businesses are backed by professional recruiters that understand the culture - both the company's and the country's - to make the perfect match at the first time.

What Have Been Your Most Significant Milestones? What Has Been The Driving Force Behind Your Success?
I've worked on large-scale projects with five thousand recruits around the world, as well as assisting startups, all of which have given me the experience I needed to start my worldwide recruitment firm. Setting up a recruitment firm is the pinnacle of most recruiters' careers, and I'm thrilled that Nova International Group has been so successful already during such a trying in time in history.
I was also honoured to get The Middle East International Recruitment Award, which was a tremendous honour to have my efforts recognised, and I was overjoyed to become a chartered professional through the CIPD.
"To be successful in this challenging world, you need to be forward-thinking and always looking one step ahead which is key for the team at Nova International Group"
My family has always been a major source of inspiration, and I've always considered myself an entrepreneur.

As A Successful Businesswoman, What Would Be Your Advice To Young Girls & Women Who Are Aspiring To Be Future Leaders In This Field?
Throughout my career, I collaborated with colleagues and mentors to gain as much experience as possible in each role. I'd like to see more women in senior positions in large organisations, and I'm delighted that I am contributing to that goal.
