Meet the Team
Meet the Layka Ladies (& dad)
Cara High first stepped into Recruitment in 1999 after temping in a recruitment office. She soon found her feet and secured a permanent position within a commercial agency and proceeded to work her way into management. Cara quickly recognised where she could definitely make a real difference to candidates and clients alike. She loved the buzz of recruitment then and still does today! The comments that Cara has received over the years confirms that her priority to listen sets Layka Recruitment apart, and the feedback that has been received is testimony to what her and her team have achieved and will continue to do so for many years to come.
The driving force behind Cara launching Layka Recruitment in 2011 was to challenge what the industry was fast becoming! She has made sure that there are no KPIs to achieve here, no “numbers game” and is proud that every single client and candidate are as important as each other!
