Untapped Recruitment was founded in 2021 by Kate Clover. Having begun her career working in PR and communications, Kate moved into recruitment for the sector in 2007 and since then has worked as an external recruitment provider and in-house with a global PR agency. Her unique combination of experience as a candidate, recruitment consultant and internal talent lead in the PR and communications industry means she really understands the challenges and motivations faced by all in the talent search process.
We specialise in covering roles for the PR and communications industry with a specific focus across consumer, corporate and b2b PR. We cover both PR agency and in-house roles and typically work on roles from Account Executive level through to Senior Director. For all roles candidates and clients can expect the same care and diligence in our detailed approached.
As well as sourcing the best candidates and roles across the PR and communications industry I also provide industry insights into salary benchmarking, industry trends, benefits, the recruitment process, CV writing and interview techniques and tips.
