Who are we?

Hello. We're Kara G, a friendly recruitment agency that places admin support, marketing and creative services staff within design and architecture. Led by Kara Goodrich, we have a consultative ethos and a desire to do a seriously good job. You won't find a 'bums on seats' approach here.

With over 10 years' experience under her belt, Kara has a huge knowledge of the design industry, an enviable little black book and a respected code of ethics. Her honest approach has resulted in client relationships that span her own career and an ongoing role in many of her candidates careers.

    “I first met Kara in 2006 when she placed me as Studio Manager for a well known Architectural visualisation studio.  I was impressed with her professional, yet relaxed demeanour and honest and astute approach. Over the next 8 years, Kara has placed me in 2 other roles … I’ve also worked with Kara as a client. She just knows instinctively who will fit with which company and vice versa and her level headed, open and reassuring manner make her a delight to work with as a client as well as a candidate …”

    “My faith in recruitment agencies was at an all time low, then I managed to track down Kara again. All I can say is this girl gets it! After all, she’s the only one who manages to place me in roles that last. The first was over 5 years ago and recently she scored again. Not only do I have a boss that supports me, Kara has found me a job I actually feel happy in. If you’re looking for someone who’s real and sticks to their word, Kara’s your girl.”
