Meet Cathy

Hi there, I’m Cathy Knight and I’m aiming to change the world of recruitment. I might have more than 20 years’ experience in the industry and a degree in marketing, but that doesn’t mean I believe in following traditional business models and pricing packages. 

Like many of my clients, I’m also an entrepreneur, so I understand how small business owners often require something different from their people. Your company is unique, so I know I need to find the right person for you.

I’m based in the South West, but I can cover the whole of the UK.

Why choose Isme?

Our mission is  to recruit with purpose, putting people before profit, supporting businesses aligned to our values and empowering candidates to achieve their goals.

We are committed to changing the perception of how a traditional marketing recruitment agency should operate. Firstly, we don’t judge you or your business — we treat everyone the same, which means offering our bespoke solutions to every client, regardless of their turnover or budget.

Secondly, we don’t want you to feel like you’re employing an agency. We deliver our best service when we work closely with clients, so we become like an extension of their business. 

Finally, we are passionate about growing and nurturing new talent in digital marketing, which is why we partner with an apprenticeship provider to deliver digital marketing apprenticeships for those looking to start their career in the industry.
