Yanitsa Kostadinova, Recruitment Specialist

My Story

After my high school graduation, I moved to Paris, France where I studied five years HR Management in one of the most prestigious universities in the world – Université Paris I Pantheon Sorbonne. My master’s degree was financed by a big international group specialized in luxury goods and sustainability that invests and develops different worldwide known brands, where I worked 13 months in the Talent Acquisition and Management department. I oversaw recruitment for all brands, learning and development for leadership positions within the group and other HR projects such as launching a global mentoring program in Europe and developing partnerships with universities and recruitment/ consulting agencies.

Six years later, I decided to come back to Bulgaria and join Pontica’s HR team because 1) I received a lot of positive comments from friends working already in the company and 2) Pontica shares my values in terms of transparency, social engagement and I loved the idea of “growing together”.

 

My Motivation

I am really inspired by self-made entrepreneurs who from nothing became successful without changing their identity, which is the case of Pontica’s co-founders. I love their vision and the “Pontica vibe” they are spreading. All my colleagues are great and inspire me to do my best at work and constantly develop myself.

Yanitsa after work

I really love to go to the cinema and theater. I enjoy long walks with friends and colleagues on the beach… and good food (croissants <3) + sport (from time to time)
