Ciara is our Team Building Manager and the core of our Operations Team, which serves as the backbone of neta. Ciara’s main focus is on keeping our work environment running efficiently and helping to grow the #netafam. Our foundation is to create an employee-centric company culture that did not exist within a traditional agency or consulting model which typically functions 24/7 (i.e., accessibility off-hours, by mobile device, on weekends and on vacation). One element of Ciara’s primary functions is that while neta continues to grow and mature, to uphold the values of neta’s work life balance (an anomaly for a start-up and growth-centric environment), and to evolve its learning culture where its members feel both valued and thrive.
She graduated from UCD, Ireland with a BA in English and then progressed to a Post Grad in PR and Event Management. After early professional exposure in PR, she realized she wanted to find a place she could continue to learn and grow, which brought her to neta, following a leap State-side, from her homeland of Ireland. Essential to the cross-functional team and productivity goals inherent in neta’s working-style, Ciara uses her organizational skills to ensure smooth operations in what is often a busy work environment. She is integral to internal operations, our recruitment process (Team Building) and the continued evolution of our on-boarding, which aims at setting new team members ‘up for success’ as effectively and efficiently as possible.
In her own words…
Working at neta is an exciting journey of learning and growth, where you can’t help but soak up the knowledge of the creative and talented people around you. I’ve always aspired to work in an environment that values its employee’s contributions and ideas, and believe in the importance of fostering team building, which is what I’ve found at neta. I love being able to cultivate relationships with team members, clients and vendors on a daily basis, and thrive on the fast-paced excitement of everyday life at neta.
Ciara was born in Queens, NY, but raised in Ireland. She’s enjoying getting back to her New York roots and, although she’d never want (or be able!) to lose her Irish accent, finds that she is speaking more and more like a New Yorker every day!
