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, I am now Regional  Manager at The ONE Group across all 3 of our offices. 

I have been recruiting in the Accountancy and Finance sector for 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 and watching their businesses change, develop and grow.  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 am currently responsible for the Finance, Marketing and HR divisions. I love the psychology of people management and the collaborations with leadership coaches through our added value events program. (see our events page for more detail!) 

I’m a bit of a workaholic, BUT, when I’m not in the office I’m ‘chauffeur’ and chief negotiator for 3 teenagers! When I do find some time for myself I'll be upcycling furniture, catching up with friends or taking to the coastal roads on the back of my husband’s Harley. Never a dull moment!
