I have just moved to London from Geneva for family-related reasons and to enhance my work experiences in a new foreign country.

In Geneva, I have been working for the United Nations as Art Collection Manager, with the main duties of organising and managing all the activities (inventory, conservation, documentation, dressing/exposition and ceremony – more... events planning for 2200 art-works).

Before that, I had been working in Torino, my home city, for the Italian Culture Ministry as Warehouse manager and Communication Assistant in charge of the logistics and conservation of the Italian Sacred Art paintings (from the XV century to XX century) in Racconigi Castle (Unesco Heritage).

My second passion is for the jewelry sector. I’m a jewelry advisor for friends and private customers, in my free time. I follow the jewelry auction where I buy the objects. I know the new fashion tendencies and when it’s possible the sector’s fairs.

I’m flexible, organized, I’ve good negotiation skills and the ability to handle sensitive situations with diplomacy and also the ability to stay calm under pressure and manage multiple priorities and deadlines.
For me, the attention to detail is essential like the great taste.
Please note that I would be able to begin full or part time, immediately. My enclosed CV details my skills and experience. – less

It is rewarding work, but work it is. Tough to be innovative in the UN context where the confidence that one has done the best they have to offer is its own – more... reward. – less

Administrative Assistant (Former Employee), LiberiaJanuary 22, 2014
Pros: career opportunities and empowerment
My typical day at work was multitasking, being a team player and paying attention to details but above all providing exceptional customer service.

I learned the act of multitasking and enjoyed the ability to use that skills in my daily life. I also learned to understand and work with individuals of different geographical and cultural backgrounds.

Management – more... was great. They were pleasant, always willing to listen and resolve issues and the best possible ways.

My co-workers were very productive at work, team players and self starters.

Hardest part of the job was the very first week of going through orientation and understanding the core values of the United Nations.

The most enjoyable part was being able to serve in every capacity, in accordance with the core values of the United Nations that provided a great outcome for the department. – less
