Meet The NP Team: Lila Ilak, Talent Acquisition Specialist

Lila Ilak is a Talent Acquisition Specialist at NP Talent Solutions. Based in our London HQ, she specialises in Technology recruitment in France. 

What’s your job?

I am currently a resourcer at NP Talent Solutions. As I studied French at University, I am mainly working in the French market. Since I started working with NP Group, I have worked on roles within Sales, Technology, Marketing and Finance. In particular, I have resourced for quite a few Salesforce roles in the past several months and it has been enlightening to learn more about this technology and the companies that use it.

What kind of roles are you recruiting for?

I have several very interesting roles I am working on at the moment. I am looking for people with Salesforce knowledge for a company in Paris, Financial Controllers and a few Marketing/ Product roles in London, Amsterdam, and Barcelona. Recruiting for a variety of roles has really helped me better understand different markets, how different companies work and what a good CV looks like.

What gives you job satisfaction?

Working with candidates is incredible, as I get to know them not just as professionals, but also as people who have their work goals, hobbies and families. It is very satisfying to know I could be the one to help them get a better job that could change their lives.

Tell me about how you help clients and candidates?

We Wwork closely with our clients to better understand their needs, which improves our search process. Learning about a companies’ cultures means we understand what kind of people they are looking for and what candidates would fit best.

I always keep in touch with candidates so I can better understand if their needs or priorities have changed or developed, which allows me the provide the best service possible, and ultimately find the best job for them.

Anything else to share about your job?

I love working at NP. The atmosphere in our office is very supportive and fun. I can always rely on anyone for help if I need it, be it my manager or another colleague. Flexible working also helps us better manage our time and gives us the capability to pursue the best results possible for our clients.
