People behind The Career Boutique


Katherine Dales

When Katherine returned to Oxford, her home town, after graduating from the University of Kent, where she studied Law and Psychology, little did she know that in 2017 she would be running a successful recruitment agency who is celebrating its 8th anniversary.   Katherine initially experienced working for a nursing recruitment agency, then joined a well-respected Oxfordshire consultancy and gained CertRP status.  In 2006 she launched an IT based consultancy with two experienced colleagues.
In 2009, The Career Boutique was founded by Katherine and her belief that the “live to work” culture so prevalent in Britain today can lead to discontent both at home and at work and whilst  a self-confessed workaholic, Katherine maintains her drive and focus with a healthy lifestyle and encourages both clients and candidates to do the same.  
As well as being a local recruitment company in Oxfordshire and Berkshire, Katherine is thrilled to have launched The Career Boutique’s London based Executive Talent Division in Covent Garden.  The focus of which is to, quite simply, to unearth exciting individuals and connect them with inspiring and exciting opportunities.
If you want to find exciting individuals for your company or want to find an exciting opportunity, contact Katherine Dales to see how she can help you.
