Katie Henry


I have been a Temporary and Contracts Recruitment Consultant with Charterhouse for over three years. Prior to this I worked within both the legal sector as a legal assistant and in the property industry as a lettings agent.

I have developed a real passion for recruitment and enjoy working within a fast-paced environment whilst providing exceptional service to both clients and candidates. During my time at Charterhouse I have had the opportunity to work on large recruitment projects, involving account management, a part of the role I relish. Meeting and speaking to new people everyday whether this be on the phone, via online platforms or attending sales pitches is a great part of my job.

Outside of work I enjoy socialising with friends and family. Keeping fit and healthy is important to me, aerobics, running, and walking are some of my favourite pastimes. I look forward to my holidays and exploring new places, a few of my favourite destinations have been Dubai, Bali and Thailand.
