Diana Vasiliu – Human Resources Coordinator

My story with Close to You begins in 2012, the year when I “fully” joined the team of Close to You Foundation, even though, with my heart, I witnessed the “first steps” of this NGO at its establishment in 2002, when I was employed at the Holt International Children`s Services USA at its offices in Iasi.

I am a graduate of the Department of Philosophy – Social Assistance at the “Alexandru Ioan Cuza” University in Iasi and have a Master’s Degree of the Department of Psychology of the same university. Immediately after I graduated I had the chance to work in the field of social assistance, more precisely, in an NGO. Throughout my professional career, I had the chance to value my personal and professional abilities, both in working with the beneficiaries of social services and as supervisor/ coordinator/manager of the implementation teams on different projects. I got involved and still like very much to get involved in writing projects for different sources of financing.

I organized and held presentations at conferences, events, training or other capacity building events, classes for parents. I also conceived and elaborated on specialized materials in the field of social assistance and protection for the child and the family (articles published in magazines, specialized guidelines and books).

I am certified as a trainer, project manager and evaluator of training programs. I also have a certificate as Inspector of Human Resources. Within the CTY team, I had different positions in time: head of the mobile teams within the archiving service, expert in technical coordination of project partnership. Since 2017 I have taken over the attributions specific to the position of Human Resources Coordinator. I pay special attention to my work because I like things well done.

I believe that people are wonderful and that there are beauty and value in each and every one of us. The people are the most important resource in an organization, the entire physical and mental potential that an organization has in order to reach its objectives, the reason for which it is important to understand and motivate the human resource.
