More about Soraya Savji
Soraya joined Annex in September 2011 as a Recruitment Consultant. She moved to Vancouver from Nairobi, Kenya to attend UBC and she immediately fell in love with the city. Through her time at university, she participated in a wide range of clubs and programs, one of which was the Arts Co-op Program.
During her final work term as a Research Assistant with the Arts Co-op Program, she participated in intake interviews, co-facilitated pre-employment training workshops and information sessions, advised students on applications, conducted mock interviews and worked on larger projects including a social media strategy and online student guide. This sparked her interest in the recruitment field. All of her co-op work experience complemented the skills and knowledge she gained as a Speech Science Major, and she graduated with a wide range of transferrable skills.
Soraya works closely with the Client Managers to ensure Annex clients are presented with the highest calibre candidates best suited to the client’s specific requirements. She enjoys working in a dynamic environment and looks forward to working with the team and members of the Annex Alliance to help clients and consultants achieve their goals.
We are excited to have Soraya join us on the 2014 Wideman Prize Competition day and thank her for her support.
