Eden Inziria

Chief of Operations

Eden’s education and career started in Kenya. However, her drive to acquire more knowledge and gain international expertise led her to quit her stable job in order to pursue further studies in the United Kingdom.

Eden finally earned her MBA from Coventry University, UK, and immediately secured a high-level job as an operations executive in an international firm based in the United Kingdom.

However, her love for her home country and the need to make a difference in the society led her to resign her job and relocate back home. Within a couple of months, she secured a position in one of the leading logistics firms in the world. Therefore, she understands the challenges involved in securing employment in Kenya in this era and what can be done to overcome these challenges.

Eden has a passion for transforming ideas, situations and teams from an embryonic level to an ideal state of optimal performance. EmploymentSTUDIO provides a platform for her to engage with the African youth, find out their passion and employment challenges and transform these dreams into reality.

Eden’s unique brand management skills will help the job-seeker to polish the impression they give to prospective employers both on paper and in person, by making sure that what the job-seeker puts on their resume matches their decorum.

Eden understands that tackling one’s own resume can be a challenge, simply because it can be difficult to view your own experience with unbiased eyes. Her skills in pitching for products, services or ideas will help the job-seeker to get noticed, and as result get an interview!

Eden lives with her husband in Nairobi, Kenya. She enjoys experiencing different cultures, societies and paradigms through travels and media.
