Katrina Raposo

Operations Director

Kat is a top performer by anyone’s reckoning. In more than 20 years with some of the biggest names in recruitment where competition is fierce, she has consistently ranked at the top of the tree across a whole range of targets and measures. Here, in 2019 she wasn’t to be beaten either, achieving Amour’s highest billings.

 

Behind her matter-of-fact manner and dry sense of humour is a warm commitment to those she works with.

 

Kat joined us to set up the Amour office that serves Wales and the South West. She had been running her own agency in Caerphilly; a lifestyle business that would flex as she raised her family. When the time came to get back to the corporate world, joining Amour to help ramp up its growth was a great fit all round.  She works across vertical markets and at all levels of role seniority, to match candidates in:

 

  • Contact Centres
  • Financial Services
  • Office & Professional
  • Technical and Engineering

She is particularly skilled at high volume recruitment delivery, where her skills in leading high-performance teams, project delivery and management come to the fore.

 

Kat’s ability to understand the needs behind a job description is legendary, and it’s why her recruitment solutions are so effective.  

 

And what are Kat’s Amours? She tackles a lot more than recruitment with her deep involvement in rugby. Life as a rugby mum, supporter and, since 2015, the team manager of Senghennydd mini’s team (under 7’s to under 12’s), mean that  most Tuesday nights see her sorting out queries and having a general chinwag with parents and the coaching team, and on Sundays, she’s knee keep in mud taking score on match days. Amour Recruitment sponsors the Minis’ and Juniors’ kits and tour gear – so you could say the teams wear the heart on their sleeves!

 

Kat adds, “I love and protect my family, and that doesn’t end with my blood relatives. It extends into my work and my friendships. I love seeing people develop, knowing I was key in that development. I love hair dye, nail polish, colour, cartoons, creativity, nature, animals – and sarcasm!”
