Maria Tsimpiropoulou,

– Owner of Silver Lining and Official Representative of Gordon Charles UK in Greece

When I was in the midst of crisis, unemployed, at my 37, and with 2 small children, I felt that I was with my family at a very critical point for our survival. I appreciated that it was not enough to look and find another job, which most likely would be without any recognition! I had to do something more active! I had to finally open my own wings! Yes, in the middle of a crisis, against all odds! And because with 2 degrees, 4 languages ​​and my entire being longing for creation and quality work, I wanted to do something of my own, THE WAY I LIKE IT! Thus, within the first two hours of my unemployment I sat and wrote in detail on a sheet of paper what I could do, to what people and services I had to go, what cost would any action have and I said “GO!” Silver Lining was founded in 2013 and is a recruitment agency in general, oriented in the vocational rehabilitation of candidates mainly abroad and having in mind that especially in such difficult times, people should be treated as people, not as numbers. There is love and genuine concern for the fellow man and this is reflected in the comments they leave on my pages candidates we placed in jobs. Which I think maybe is my biggest success as a professional and as a person!
