Karen Smith - Early Careers Advisor

My role at Wates is to recruit great talent onto our Early Careers apprenticeship and graduate programs and ensure they get the support needed to work towards a rewarding and fulfilling career.

After working in HR and recruitment for many years, I moved into into Early Talent 7 years ago. I had worked for a major pharmaceutical company for 14 years when an opportunity to take over their graduate and intern programs arose 7 years ago. I moved across firstly as a recruiter then as the UK manager. Early Talent can be a very rewarding area to work in, helping and supporting students with that first step on the career path and seeing them progress to greater things!
