Kate originates from Canada.  She moved to the UK to learn more about her heritage and start a new chapter in life.  With a goal of settling down in beautiful north Shropshire, the first leg of her journey was concentrated on securing employment.  This experience of facing the challenges and rewards of settling down in a new country makes Kate an empathetic administrator as she understands where job seekers are coming from.  Facing the unknown in the pursuit of a new job can be both exciting and daunting at times and Kate is the friendly face who greets our recruits as they walk through our door.

While living in Canada Kate earned a Diploma in Legal Administration and a BA (Hons) Degree in Legal Studies before working as a Law Clerk in Toronto.  She also spent some time working in the horse industry as a groom/rider for various professional Canadian showjumpers which involved traveling to international competitions.  Horses are still a big part of her life as she enjoys riding in her spare time.

What Kate says: “It is Red Recruitment’s ethical drive to genuinely help people that attracted me to this role.”
