Laura Heaney works in our Manchester office:
How did you hear of ELA?It was a personal recommendation from a friend who had temped through ELA.
First impressions of ELA?I went to Salford University Career fair and that was really good for me as a newbie to get out and talk to candidates and some potential clients. Almost every candidate that came to speak to me wanted translation and then I spoke about what other opportunities are out there and people were amazed to find so many different career paths that would involve languages. I am also running the Race for Life in July with some colleagues which will be a nice team outing and for a good cause.
Tell us something about your home town? I come from a small town called Wilmslow in Cheshire where lots of WAGS live!
What do you think you have brought to ELA? I believe I have brought bags of enthusiasm, new contacts – both clients and especially candidates. I was on the student committee for the School of Modern Languages at Leeds University and have friends that speak all the EU languages which have definitely put more candidates on our books! I even know people who speak less popular languages such as Serbo-Croat.
Any Hidden talents?I used to compete on a national level in trampolining
Ben Baumeister works in our Dusseldorf office
How did you hear of ELA?I was called by the manager of the Dusseldorf office after I applied on Monster for a food and wine sales advert.
First impressions of ELA?There is a good atmosphere in the office, sense of team work and the team are very hospitable. I feel at home here, and most importantly the role fits all my needs!
Tell us something about your home town? I come from a small town Monchengladbach which is the former textile capital of West Germany. It is also famous for its regional football.
What do you think you have brought to ELA? Firstly a high level of sales skills along with specific industry knowledge of the food and drink sector which is where my main passion lies.
Any Hidden talents?I have a strong sense of “taste” in relation to food and drink as I have studied this for a number of years
