Daniela Andrea Obili is a senior talent acquisition specialist on our HR team.
How has the HR team changed over the years?
When I joined BonelliErede, I was only 24 and the youngest in what was a team of four then. That soon increased to 14 because of our increased breadth of work and the many initiatives introduced. Over the years, other colleagues have joined, and it’s been really stimulating to play an active role in the team’s growth and transformation.
Thanks to our HR director’s energy and drive, the team has taken on an increasingly important role over time and now serves our leadership as a real business partner and is involved in strategic decisions.
What is the most fulfilling part of your job?
As a recruiting lead, my primary goal is to find and attract the best talent, be it for our legal teams or business support.
My greatest ambition is to find the leaders of tomorrow. That means regularly sifting through hundreds of CVs and attending, together with some of our professionals, annual job fairs at the most prestigious Italian, UK and US universities.
One of the aspects that makes me most proud of my job is knowing that I am the first person candidates meet and have seen some rise to the very top of our firm, and wherever their path takes them, they will always view BonelliErede as a market benchmark.
I also work on employer branding and work with the Branding & Communication team to strengthen our brand to attract young talent.
How do you strike a balance between your passions and your professional life?
BonelliErede is a stimulating environment that requires dedication and has given me the opportunity to grow both on a personal and professional level – driving me to always do my best.
Being a team player is fundamental in my job. I’ve had the privilege of getting to know so many brilliant people and have built excellent relationships that extend outside work – I even share some of my passions with some.
Dance is one of my passions and is a truly unique way to have fun. It also helps me recharge my battery after a day at work. Whenever I can, I get my dancing shoes on and get to the dance studio to try out some new Latin American steps.
