Kathryn Riley, Managing Director of Douglas Scott Legal Recruitment, explains how starting up her own venture requires that you wear all the hats...
What motivated you to start-up on your own?
Douglas Scott was born out of a desire to do things differently and a passion for delivering a high-quality service.
While I took great pride in my work before setting up Douglas Scott, I was fast becoming disenchanted and, as I climbed the ladder, frustration started to creep in as I became more aware of a reluctance to invest in delivering high quality work.
I knew I was great at my job and, as a gained a more comprehensive understanding of business, it became clear to me that recruitment could work in a way much more closely aligned with my values. Quality remains our core focus at Douglas Scott and, while all our staff live by the same ethos as me, I never want them to feel that they are investing more than the business itself.
