Hey there! My name is Lara and I’m part of the UK Talent Acquisition Team. I recruit across EMEA and APAC for Tech and Corporate roles. I am also involved with internships in the UK, team training in EMEA, the LGBTQ+ community, and Women in Tech here at GoDaddy.
So, what’s your story? What led you to GoDaddy?
I started my GoDaddy journey in 2019 as a Tech Recruiter. I was immediately amazed by the open and honest culture we have here. Let's just say I loved it from day 1! I left for a short period of time in 2020 to obtain my degree in Advanced Professional Counselling. Upon my return, I became a permanent employee covering EMEA and APAC. I am lucky enough to have found my passion and purpose in life here at GoDaddy.
The main reason I was attracted to GoDaddy was the culture and career development. During my interview process it was very clear that GoDaddy puts their employees first and treats everyone as an equal! Receiving the job offer was an easy YES!
How has GoDaddy helped you grow as an individual?
When I first joined GoDaddy, I was very green in my career. I wasn’t used to being able to express myself in the workplace. Not only has GoDaddy helped me grow confidence, but it has also helped me flourish as an individual.
I am proud to work for a company that encourages its employees to bring our true selves to work. I have made friends for life, here. My team is my family and I am blessed to work with such incredible people!
What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
Outside of work, I enjoy competing in show jumping and dressage competitions. I also volunteer at local racehorse rehabilitation centres, helping to care for mistreated horses. When I’m not in the saddle you’ll find me at the tattoo parlour! My favourite tattoos are my 2 velociraptors!
What would you do (for a career) if you weren’t doing this?
I couldn’t imagine doing anything apart from Talent Acquisition! But if I had to choose I would be a full time horse trainer/rehabilitator!
What is your personal philosophy?
My personal philosophy is the Golden Rule: Treat others the way you want to be treated yourself.
