Olivia Barth

How would you describe yourself? 

I would describe myself as compassionate, astute and dynamic. I have a lot of energy and like to throw myself 100% into everything I do. I have always loved helping people and encouraging others, and I am passionate about getting people to realise their full potential.

What do you enjoy about your role and Eliot Partnership?

What I love most about this role is spending time with people, learning their story and connecting them to the right opportunities. What I love most about Eliot Partnership is the culture. It is unmatched and truly a firm that is collaborative and lives its values.

What did you want to be when you were younger?

I was always people-driven and wanted to do something that helped society. I initially started my undergraduate degree in child and family studies where I worked in a prison helping people rehabilitate and reintegrate into society. Part of me also always wanted to be a famous broadway star!
