I am a Swedish recruiter that have recently relocated to Barbados in the eastern Caribbean. I work with recruitment for the Swedish market and also with American clients. I do full-cycle recruitment as well as smaller separate projects such as CV/resume screening, phone screening of candidates, scheduling interviews and doing reference checks.

Karin helped us out with recruitment, on-site, for a year, hiring all kinds of game developer roles. It was a pleasure to have her on our team.

During my time at the Moderna Museét (Museum of Modern Art in Stockholm) I hired Karin as an recruitment consultant for an assignment. Karin did av very good job and I experience her as a very competent and skilled recruiter. Karin is driven, rigorous, collaborative and responsive to customer needs and I strongly recommend Karin.

I worked with Karin on a number of projects during her time with Kandidata, both involving large state agencies and SME. With her structured approach, she was able to keep up with a very high workload, especially valuable when screening large volumes of applications and co-coordinating recruitment days with multiple stations and applicants. She was a huge help in ensuring our timely deliveries.
