As with many professions, recruitment is highly competitive. What makes individual consultants stand out is their personality and their approach to the recruitment process.
I set up my business several years ago and I wanted to share with you a little bit more about myself, why I love my job and what I hope to achieve…
Katie Strange Recruitment Ltd started in May 2016. I had successfully worked in the recruitment industry for over 4 years and I had the desire to “go it alone”. I loved my old team and at the time it was a huge decision. I hadn’t necessarily planned on starting my own business, it felt like the right thing to do and I’m very pleased that I did!
I had won 3 consecutive national awards for my annual achievements within permanent recruitment and this gave me the belief and confidence to start KSR Ltd.
ME! If you look online you will find a lot of other recruitment companies all offering very similar services. The difference is the individual. My work ethic, personality and ability to understand your business is what makes me different.
I am a loyal and honest person and I think this comes across in my business. I have built genuine partnerships with the companies that I work for and I have become a key part of their HR and Recruitment processes. Matching skills is essential, but matching a team fit is vital!
I love what I do, I specifically work with SMEs that I believe in and this allows me to offer a genuine service to both them and potential applicants.
I specifically work with SMEs, companies that tend to recruit up to 10 or 15 times a year. They will very often have a stand-alone HR or Office Manager overseeing their recruitment.
I act as an extension to these businesses, working in very close partnership with them throughout the recruitment process.
I take the time to understand their needs and requirements and to also gain a true insight into their company culture, values and vision.
I’ve built some excellent relationships over the years and I love feeling a part of the extended team!
A good question! I am a born and bred Peterborough girl. I did branch out for a few years, I didn’t know which direction to take so I took a 3 year “gap year” and never quite made it to University!
I worked, saved and travelled. I visited some amazing places including Madagascar, I also completed a ski season in France whilst working in a mountain restaurant.
I love sport, I attempt to run and play netball most weeks!
With work, I was fortunate and fell into recruitment. I was working as an Account Manager, I saw a recruitment job advertised, after a little pestering and several phone calls I managed to secure myself an interview and I started with the business 4 weeks later.
I have a positive outlook on life and I love what I do!
