    Sonia has extensive management experience and enjoys developing, mentoring and promoting staff, fostering an environment for them to enhance and maximise their skill set, while helping candidates find their dream job. It's always rewarding to receive candidate and client referrals to their connections, a result of the positive experience they received.
