Here at Altagram we strongly believe, that a business is only as good as its employees. That's why with this series of posts, we wanted to turn attention to the people that drive our company, our Altamates. This week we're continuing with Alex, who will talk to us about his life as a Talent Acquisition Manager at Altagram.
Alex has been with us since October of 2021, and has been supporting our team as a Talent Acquisition Manager. With a long prior background in construction, the Dublin-born professional has gathered the extensive interpersonal skills needed, to succeed as an Acquistion Expert. Moving to Berlin and working for Altagram was a personal challenge, he says, which he will talk about more in this article.
