Founder Kate Clarke is well versed with finance, accounting and tax functions. She originally trained as a chartered accountant with Arthur Andersen, firstly in audit and then as a corporate tax specialist. She then enjoyed a number of finance and tax roles in industry before putting her career on hold to bring up a young family.
In 2012 her corporate career was reignited, but in a new form – as Head of The Mitie Foundation; a corporate charity which focuses on, amongst other things, helping the unemployed into work. It was this experience that sparked the idea to set up Artemis Clarke as, not only had it given her the confidence to build something from scratch, it had made her realise how much she enjoyed matching candidates with job opportunities. It also fulfilled a lifelong ambition to run her own business.
The added bonus; that she understands what candidates are looking for in their careers, as well as understanding the needs of her clients, has resulted in the enviable reputation that Artemis Clarke is enjoying for bespoke financial recruitment.
Our values reflect the principles on which we operate: integrity, transparency, professionalism and empathy.
We believe in developing long term, trusted relationships by truly understanding and responding to the ambitions and goals of the employers and candidates we work with.
