Ilona Viilu Linkedin profiil

I joined Tammiste Personalibüroo in February 2018 and was happy to find that my new colleagues, being top professionals, were also very supporting and friendly people.

I obtained my BA and MA degrees at Tallinn University. My BA degree was in language editing. It has given me good oral and written skills both in Estonian and English.  In 2017, I graduated cum laude in organisational psychology which gave me comprehensive knowledge about personnel work, recruitment and psychology.

In 2011, I started to work as an insurance consultant at IF P&C Insurance AS and soon moved on to ERGO Insurance SE where I worked as a vehicle insurance sales manager for five years. My job entailed supporting our insurance brokers in their everyday work. Working at insurance companies has given me a lot of experience with sales people and a good understanding of how large organisations function.

Finding the right person for every vacant post, as well as a long-term and fruitful employment relationship for both parties after the recruitment are very important to me. It is a long process requiring time and effort. This is due to the fact that, in addition to the right skills and competencies, also the candidate’s motivation and matching his or her personality traits with the team’s need to be considered.

My job at Tammiste personalibüroo focuses on personnel search projects where my long-term experience with sales people turned out to be very useful. I am able to see the larger picture and help companies in their recruitment process. Last but not least, I value life-long learning and wish to improve my competence through various training programmes.
