Recruitment Consultant

Silvia began her working career as a hairdresser in the late 80`s in her home city of Adelaide. After almost 20 years on the floor including taking some time off, Silvia changed direction slightly to the training side of hairdressing. In 2010, between home renovations and regular trips to her favourite family holiday spot, Bali, it was time for a career change. Silvia progressed down the training/education path with roles in a few federal and state funded VET/Vocational Learning and Apprenticeship Programs. Here, she completed an Advanced Diploma of Management and an Advanced Diploma of Management (Human Resources). 


More recently after taking some time off to travel and refine her Yogi skills, Silvia is very excited to come full circle and return back to her hairdressing origins with the team here at National Salon & Spa Recruitment. Silvia looks forward to supporting our clients and help in finding the perfect staff for their teams.
