Shubina’s career began in the UK Diplomatic Service in London, before she left to go on a diplomatic assignment in Hong Kong at the British Consulate in 2005. She eventually transitioned out of the UK government and into the private sector in Hong Kong; specifically a boutique executive search firm specializing in the finance and banking industry. After relocating to Los Angeles in 2010, Shubina spent a little time working in entertainment industry after which she realized that her true passion lay in recruitment, staffing and executive search – from guiding candidates with their careers and the sometimes difficult decisions they may have to make, to working with clients and helping them find that special individual to represent their brand. Shubina’s training and work in the UK government instilled a relentless need in her to assist others and so assisting jobseekers or hiring managers has become a way of life.
Shubina joined Hire Options in 2013 and she truly believes that everyone deserves to wake up feeling excited to go to “work”, just as she does!
For fun, she likes to keep fit by boxing, spinning and taking as many classes as she can at Orangetheory Fitness, or taking her muscle car out on long drives along Pacific Coast Highway to relax by the ocean. Her greatest motivator in life is her daughter, Supernova and also their pet Pembroke Welsh Corgi, Gary.
Fun Fact: Shubina is British and she does not like The Beatles, believing The Rolling Stones to be a superior band by far. She also realizes that these might be fighting words to some.
