Kate is a long standing member of the RECD team recently achieving Team Leader status in our Recruitment division. She came to us several years ago after making a huge move from the UK to Melbourne to pursue her travel dreams and advance her love of recruitment.
Initially intending to forge a career in Law, Kate completed her degree at Nottingham Trent University in the UK where she grew up, the eldest of five children. Whilst in her final year in 2013, she took up employment with Smaller Earth in their national team, and thus began her love affair with recruitment.
After graduating with honours in 2014, Kate opted to continue with Recruitment over Law, displaying a natural talent and love for working with people. She successfully gained employment with Hollyfield Personnel as a Recruitment Resourcer. Here she consulted in the placement of permanent, temporary and contract staff in the areas of Sales, Account Management, Business Development, Customer service, Administration, Accounts, IT, Marketing and Human Resources. During this time she saved to travel across the world, settling in Melbourne in 2015 at Real Estate Career Developers (RECD).
Kate dominates in the recruitment of temporary and permanent staff for Real Estate agencies all across Melbourne, responsible for many of the five star ratings RECD are known for. Taking the extra time to get to know her candidates, she ensures every role is right for them through carefully assessing their work history and skill set. With an eye for great talent, Kate regularly finds her fabulous temps made permanent which is a sign of her careful selection. Possessing an impeccable recall, she is described as ‘personable and warm’, ‘on the ball’ and ‘knowledgeable and professional,’ regularly receiving high praise from both her clients and candidates.
Enjoying her home in inner Melbourne and the opportunities her life here offers, she makes the most of seeing as much of Australia as she can, and indulging her hobbies of yoga and tea drinking wherever possible!
