Keira Couzens

Head of Business Services

“I joined Ryder Reid in 2010, it was my first job in recruitment and I’ve loved every second here. I’ve covered several desks, including all temporary business services roles, as well as recruiting lawyers and paralegals, so I have a strong understanding of how law firms operate.

“A lot of my time is dedicated to meeting and registering candidates to ensure that we understand them and can get the best match for our clients. My job also involves keeping in touch with clients and candidates, sourcing candidates for live roles and submitting CVs to clients.

“The fact that we have long-standing staff members really sets Ryder Reid apart. Clients love that, because it enables them to build a strong relationship with the same consultant, while we retain a real understanding of our clients’ needs. With that, over time, comes trust and they respect and value our opinions.

“It’s an enjoyable environment and it doesn’t feel like work most days. I like the variety my job provides and you never know what challenge you’ll face next, which keeps the job fresh and exciting.”

“As a child, I didn’t know what I wanted to be when I grew up; maybe a vet or a footballer when I was very young. A family friend who owned a recruitment agency once told me that I’d make a good recruitment consultant, ‘because you don’t stop talking’. He must have been right.”
