Katie Watson

Lead Partner

Phone: 07593439662

[email protected]

I started in the fashion retail industry at the age 13 when I started helping out my parents in their independent fashion business. You could say that retail fashion is in my blood. It's something I follow as a hobby as well as a career and I'm obsessive about staying ahead of the game! I now have 11 years recruitment experience within the retail fashion industry and I couldn’t imagine myself doing anything different.
I work hard to partner with brands, working as an extension of their internal team and I try to live and breathe the brands I represent. Oddly I have made a bit of a name for myself by filling roles in hard to fill locations, whether that be in the UK or abroad. If you are in Cornwall, London or Australia, I can support you with your recruitment needs!

After graduating with a (very useful) Creative Writing and Journalism Degree I took the natural step of working in retail, in a high street jewellers. Over time, I progressed into various Management and Senior Management positions in luxury watch and jewellery brands.

After years of helping people find their perfect watch or perfect piece of jewellery, I decided to help people find their perfect job instead. The parts of my role I enjoyed most were always people and relationship focused, and that's why AdMore Recruitment were the perfect choice for me.
