Miller Leith on the wall

National Manager - Supply Chain, Procurement & Merchandise

Born and raised in Ireland and currently living in the heart of Melbourne! Having spent a year working in New Zealand Kate moved to Melbourne to work for a leading specialist team here at Miller Leith.

Kate started her career in recruitment as a graduate having just finished a BA Hons Degree in Business & Commerce and honestly didn’t even know this career existed! 4 years on and she now recruits in the Supply Chain & Procurement space and is loving it. Recruitment is a complex and challenging industry, but Kate can genuinely say that she really enjoys what she does.

Kate’s strength in recruitment is that she takes a lot of pride in what she does and always aims to have a complete understanding of what a business needs and what role a candidate will thrive in.

Outside of work Kate loves to travel and tick some restaurants off her foodie bucket list. Any sort of outdoor activity you can generally count her in!

What is important to you?

Food. Family and friends come in close 2nd though.

What is something quirky about you?

I have an obsession with checking the weather, I’ve read the entire Harry Potter series 5 times and I can also recite the entire script of Mean Girls from start to finish.

What is it about the recruitment industry that motivates you?

I love to be busy and I think recruitment is one of the rare jobs that it’s impossible not to be busy! I’m a people person by nature so I love the fact that it allows me to meet people from all walks of life and build long standing relationships

My teammates would describe me as…

Shockingly bad at pool
