    “Katie is well known and well respected by senior partners and decision makers in most law firms across Brisbane. Katie’s relaxed, practical and open style takes the edge off the inevitably stressful task of securing a new role.”


    I would like to say a big THANK YOU to Katie for helping me to find this amazing job opportunity. Job seeking has always been a stressful process for me, but Katie made it simple and was there for me throughout the entire process. Katie is very approachable, efficient and professional. I was very lucky to have her. I would recommend Francis James Executive Recruitment to anyone who is looking for a career change or their next career challenge. 


    I would recommend Katie and her team for anyone looking for a career move. They were very professional, great communicators and worked really hard to find me the right position during this very unusual period we are all navigating.

    I have worked with Katie for over a decade and she has consistently placed me in quality roles over that time.  I recommend her highly
