Cat studied Physiotherapy at Kings College and once dreamt of working with rugby teams around the world. She started as a temporary administrator at a boutique legal recruitment agency and loved the energy and enthusiasm of the recruiters. When she was offered a role as a consultant she jumped at the chance!

Although it makes Cat feel very old, she is now one of the longest serving Paralegal / Risk & Compliance recruiters in London! She has worked with all the top UK / US firms over the years as well as a range of In-house legal teams. Cat is delighted to now be overseeing the EJ team which recruits Paralegals, Document Review and Risk Compliance.

Cat is often called upon for advice by her clients- for example, about how to fill skills gaps, how to attract and retain talent and for salary and market information. She has worked closely with a number of firms setting up their risk function, advising on team structure, job description and salaries.

In her youth Cat was attracted to physio because she wanted to help people – and this is the main reason why she loves recruitment now. She loves advising people at the very early stages of their career and continuing to support them as they develop.


Cat has a slight handbag obsession treating herself annually to a new designer bag. She insists it is for investment purposes! She also loves a bargain so if you want to find out about the latest offers and  deals, Cat is the person to ask!
