Originally from Poland, I studied for a master’s degree in Special Education. I then decided to move to Germany where I spent 4 years working and learning a new language. I must admit, I love and miss Germany but moving to London was another great decision that brought my career to another level.

After spending some time in the sales industry, I decided to become a recruiter and help people to search for their dream job. In Orbis, I specialise in the infrastructure field. 

In my free time, you will find me jogging around parks in London, meeting friends after work or planning new trips abroad!
