About Me

Hi there!

My name is Kasia and my journey in recruitment started, of course, completely by accident. After a short term project a friend got me involved in, I continued my linguistic studies convinced that I’ll never go back to recruiting again. Boy was I wrong…

After graduation I realised that a career as a professional poetry translator was probably less realistic than I’d thought and so I decided to apply for a recruitment role. I’ve worked in graduate recruitment, rec2rec, financial services and investment banking, all remotely from beautiful Krakow, where I’ve lived my entire life.

(Yes, that’s a picture of my home city above!)

Last year I decided to make a change and I moved to London. I imagined I could finally find other people who are as passionate about recruitment as I am. It sounds cliché, but I really mean it: I enjoy talking about recruitment so much, I’ll happily spend my time at a recruitment event even if I’m on holiday. I’m not  kidding, I’ve done it before! ;)

So much so in fact, that I founded a group dedicated to all things sourcing and recruiting: Poland Sourcing Community. We’re on Facebook and on LinkedIn, where we try to help each other with the challenges we face at work, but we also meet to source together (with our first meetup in Kraków that took place just last week!)

After I gained more experience recruiting on-site and working with startups, this year brought another big change in my life. I joined and in creating Lighthness, a training and consulting business. We’re all about employer branding and social recruiting :)

Other than a recruitment geek, I’m also a fan of sci-fi, TV series and dogs. Currently based out of Kraków, I try to visit London regularly and I’m generally a fan of travel, especially if it means getting on a plane.

Go on, get in touch on , or ! Just please don’t forget to drop me a short note so I know who you are too ;)
