Kath came on board at birdsnest to help us move our HR processes and systems forward. This included the recruitment process where she helped us find the right team members, onboard them into the nest and encourage them to reach their full potential. I loved Kath's enthusiasm and passion, she wasn't afraid to question the status quo and backed that up with her experience and a pathway forward. We landed a few key recruits and introduced a number of new and lasting initiatives in the time Kath was with us. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Kath again.

Kath worked with Employee Matters as an Employee Expert, which included both HR and Recruitment activities. She is a very experienced practitioner with lots of initiative and the ability to 'think outside the box' which is incredibly important in a tight applicant market like the one that exists now.

Kath and I worked together while she was at birdsnest.com.au a Cooma based online fashion retail business employing 150 people.
I was extremely impressed with Kath's professional approach, quietly confident manner and authentic understanding of the value of HR to a business such as birdsnest.

Kath has an intuitive understanding of people and with her experience in the industry going back many years she was able to establish many protocols and procedures at birdsnest.

In my opinion as a team leader at birdsnest, Kath brought a calm discipline to the recruitment of new team members - many of whom I interviewed with her support and advice.

I would be happy to recommend her for any role and would be available to provide further insights if required.
