Cathy Richardson Associates

Recruit and retain exceptional sales and commercial people



Cathy Richardson

What do I do?

1. I find employees for organisations. The candidates I place stay, get promoted and become leaders.

2. I help companies to make the best hiring decisions by designing, implementing and supporting recruitment processes that deliver scalable and repeatable results.

3. I provide training, coaching and facilitation to make sure hiring managers are fully equipped to make the right decisions, and that new employees are positively prepared for their new jobs.


How does this happen?

I listen with intelligence, and deliver on expectations with intelligence, understanding, commercial sensitivity and integrity.


How can I help you?

I have helped make some great careers, and I have helped some super companies employ great staff who add value right from the outset. I will be delighted to speak with you!


How do I know my methods work?

I build on a track record of over 25 years recruitment experience. During this time, more than 2,000 companies have hired successfully with my help. My aim is to deliver sustainable and measurable added value in the recruitment process. My methodology is rooted in substantial industry knowledge and high level recruitment expertise. I support my clients with true consultancy through all stages of the human resource plan. A very high proportion of the candidates I place remain in their new companies long term, getting promoted and taking leadership roles or achieving superior results in their target areas.
