What do you enjoy most about working at eNL?
I mostly enjoy the fast-paced environment and new challenges faced having not previously worked in recruitment. It is also a great team!
What is your perfect Saturday?
Lets see....well being realistic it would start with a nice long lie-in, then out for a nice walk (weather permitting!) and maybe fitting in some lunch (Italian) and shopping, finishing with a movie and bottle of champagne for the evening with my partner.
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
Sensitive, outgoing and hungry (and not just for pasta!)
What do you feel is your best achievement?
Landing the job at eNL of course! Other than that – winning a trip to New York when I was 18!
Katie is undertaking her first professional role, having graduated in Psychology in 2010. After leaving University she moved to the West Midlands to begin a new career. Katie has joined eNL as Legal Resourcer for consultants working in the Locum, In-House and Paralegal markets. Her responsibilities include writing adverts and candidate profiles, assisting in maintaining the database, updating with candidates/clients by telephone and supporting Consultants with ad-hoc project work.

What was your favourite aspect of studying Psychology?
I loved most of what we studied, my favourite subject was Clinical Psychology. Learning about how the brain functions and what happens when it goes wrong fascinates me, although in many ways it was the most challenging as there was some complicated neurological biology involved.
Where did you grow up?
I was born in Guildford in Surrey and lived around that area until I was 11. After this my family moved to the countryside of Essex, where I lived until I went to University, and my family still live. I enjoy going back to visit them and seeing my friends there.
What/Where was your best holiday?
The best holiday I’ve been on was to the Rocky Mountains in Canada, where I have been lucky enough to visit twice. The time I spent time on a ranch in the mountains, riding through the forests and waking up to a view of the lake in the valley, the fresh, warm air and incredible views will stay with me forever.
How would your friends/partner describe you?
I’m not sure what they would say, I would like to think they would say I’m loyal and enjoy having fun.
