Katie Delahunty - Talent Acquisition Partner

My professional background

Katie began her recruitment career while studying a bachelor’s degree in Journalism and PR, spending each summer as a temp for a local agency. After graduating, her natural fit and experience in the field made pursuing recruitment full-time an obvious choice. Initially, Katie focused on the office support temp market before transitioning to clerical finance, which she has successfully specialised in for over six years of her 16-year recruitment career. 

At Distinct, Katie has utilised her extensive experience, market insight and connections to elevate the clerical finance team, recently bringing on a new consultant to support this growing market. Today, she supports part qualified finance professionals across Nottinghamshire and the Midlands – proud to work with many clients she once placed with candidates.

Get to know Katie

Employing a unique, out-of-the-box style of thinking, Katie goes beyond the standard consultation process to deeply understand the needs of her clients and candidates. Investing time and effort, she views every conversation as an opportunity to cultivate a true partnership. 

Katie possesses a natural ability to establish rapport, seeking common ground and approaching each situation with humility. Her open-minded approach enables her to match candidates with opportunities truly aligned with their aspirations. She is dedicated to finding the perfect fit for clients, understanding the importance of all staff – temporary included – aligning closely with company culture and values. 

With years of experience spanning various markets, Katie has developed a significant understanding of the Midlands market. This, coupled with her insights into the evolving clerical finance sector, has enabled her to build long-term, loyal relationships, develop accounts and deliver first-class service. One standout example of Katie’s client-centric approach is her achievement of filling 13 finance roles within 8 weeks, for a single client in Nottingham. These roles ranged from purchase and sales ledger, sales ledger, to payroll and an assistant accountant positions. Utilising her expertise and extensive network, she was able to maintain quality and fit while fulfilling the client’s needs. 

Katie’s commitment to people has positioned her as a thought leader within Distinct. Beyond her role, she actively contributes to the business’s equality, diversity and inclusion initiatives, mentors team members and engages in local partnerships, demonstrating her dedication to making a positive impact beyond recruitment.

Beyond work, Katie’s focus is on her family. She brings the same passion and dedication to her role as a hands-on, fun Aunt to her four nieces, aged 2 to 32. Her leisure time mirrors her active lifestyle, filled with activities like yoga, pilates and socialising. She also enjoys indulging in her love for chocolate and cherishes time with her very active, very beautiful shih-tzu, Koji.
