Knowing our Smartmatic women (part II)

Smartmatic’s managers empower and support candidates to define their very role. In life we don’t find ourselves – we create ourselves. Let´s know more about Simina and the work she does in London. 

SIMINA BERCEANU
Head of Talent Acquisition and Development 

"Working for a company that's helping to change the world for the better makes me feel very good." 

Before joining Smartmatic, Simina gained 11 years' experience working in HR departments for large, successful companies such as Vodafone, Philip Morris and Oracle. She joined Smartmatic to recruit teams in London, EMEA and APAC. 

"Working for a company that's helping to change the world for the better makes me feel very good. And setting up new offices in EMEA from scratch is an excellent opportunity to learn and develop. You get enormous exposure to the business," explains Simina. 

Simina heads up Smartmatic's talent acquisition and development. Her role is to develop the strategy to acquire talent for key positions around the globe and create a healthy pipeline of potential candidates. 

"I enjoy encouraging people to be creative and innovative. At Smartmatic it's important to enable people to learn from mistakes. We all communicate very openly and honestly." 

Simina has an MSc in International Human Resources Management from London School of Economics and was educated in Executive & Career Coaching at New York University. She is also a certified user of HOGAN Assessment Tools, such as HPI, HDS and MVPI. 

"Smartmatic's workforce is approximately 40% women so part of my role is to increase the number of females, especially at executive level. There's a lot to attract women to Smartmatic, from our open culture to the work we do promoting equality, fairness and transparency within society."
