Consultant profile

Catherine Wallis

Regional Manager, Finance, Marketing & HR
Peterborough office

I started out as a graduate trainee for a corporate recruitment business in London, after various years enjoying central London life I moved to Cambridge spent some time as Director of my own consultancy whilst juggling 3 maternity breaks and am now Divisional Manager at The ONE Group across Cambridge and Peterborough, I have been recruiting in the Accountancy and Finance sector for nearly 20 years and have built a strong network across the qualified finance community across Cambridgeshire.  

Why do I love recruitment?  It’s challenging, engaging and rewarding.  I love understanding the businesses my clients work within and finding them outstanding candidates.  My candidates turn into my clients and I love partnering with them throughout their careers.  I encourage my teams to be pro-active, to go beyond the obvious ‘match’ and offer more insight into our clients recruitment processes than many of our competitors.  

I’m a bit of a workaholic, BUT, when I’m not in the office I’m chasing round after 3 children and 2 dogs, never enough hours in the day!  When I do find some time for myself I'll be upcycling furniture or taking to the road on the back of a Harley. Never a dull moment!
