Our recruiter Stefanie Bock is originally from Germany but she's been living in Portugal for several years. She has a big passion for helping others making their dreams come true - especially regarding dreams of moving and working abroad. What she likes the best about her job is that it enables her to support, assist, and reassure individuals in stepping into the exciting world. She knows how overwhelming and empowering it feels to move to a new country so she finds it very meaningful to give others a smooth and easy experience.
Stefanie has ventured into the world for both travel purposes and intentional life changes. She has lived in three countries including Germany, where she was born and raised. Her first time living abroad was six months in New Zealand where she worked and explored - a country that is very near to her heart. At the age of 38, she decided to leave her job behind in Germany and go to beautiful Portugal to work abroad. A decision that has truly affected her personal growth. She believes that living abroad reveals or enhances important parts of yourself that you might not have discovered otherwise.
When not working you can be sure to find Stefanie soaking up the sun and taking in the sound of the waves at the beach in Portugal. Regardless of the season, she finds pleasure and peace when being by the ocean. The rhythmic sound of waves and the salty air create an environment she finds unparalleled. Besides this she is a self-proclaimed nerd with a passion for Dungeons and Dragons, watching Doctor Who (she's a true Whovian) , and a fan of everything Tolkien and Lord of the Rings. Additionally, she actually speaks some Elvish.
Her best piece of advice for others seeking to move abroad is: keep an open mind, be patient, and enjoy the differences you will encounter as well as the new perspectives that will affect and enrich your life! Contact Stefanie today and get all the help you need to start your work adventure!
