Meet Galina Velas

Galina Velas

Consultant - Sydney

I started my career in the creative space as an Account Executive in the below the line advertising industry after spending a few years in London travelling and working for a large retailer in their online division as an Image Production Executive. Fast-forward a few years, I found myself working in the largest private education provider in NZ as a Career Advisor working with young and upcoming creatives, developers, animators and film makers, helping them get work-ready and place them into their first creative roles. In doing so, I have found my passion for match-making, thereafter naturally taking the next career step in recruitment. Working perm, contract and freelance allows me to remain current with market trends and keep my knowledge up to date. My passion for making new connections in the creative and digital sectors intertwined with my own personal way of thinking as a collaborative, innovative and creative problem-solver.

On the weekends, you’ll find me walking the waterfronts, surfing and catching up with friends over a wine or two. Yoga and Pilates are my daily regime, along with continuous passion for learning new personal and professional tool and skills.
