The JHR Team

Kirsty O’Sullivan

Senior Consultant

Kirsty joined the JHR team in May 2019 initially working within our temporaries division supporting with high volume recruitment drives. Since then Kirsty has evolved into a 360 consultant and made the move to join our permanent division early  2020 and now manages multiple commercial clients in West Yorkshire. Before joining JHR; Kirsty spent 3 years at university in London ultimately achieving a First Class Honours Degree. After this she then spent time with Pure Gym developing and managing their recruitment and training plan for their contact centre before taking a leap into agency life!

Kirsty’s passion, aptitude and natural ability to communicate with people at all levels absolutely dove tails with our commitment to building and maintaining strong key relationships with clients and candidates, recognising the importance of matching suitable candidates with clients requirements. Supporting both to ensure long term and repeat business is a primary focus for Kirsty as well as securing the right job for the right person.

Kirsty has recently bought her first house where she lives with her boyfriend and 2 kittens. She spends most of her spare time at the gym or binge watching crime drama and would consider herself a ‘foodie’ who enjoys meals out to lovely restaurants across Leeds!

Trivial fact: Kirsty was shortlisted as a contestant to represent the UK in the Eurovision Song Contest.

What our clients and candidates say about us:

  • I had a really great experience with both Kirsty and Davina who work on Temporary and Permanent roles respectively, which resulted in securing a permanent role for myself after just over one month of signing up.
    From the first meeting with Kirsty she was attentive, friendly and approachable, as well as detailed and honest about any job roles available and how suited they were to my needs. We had about an hour's chat about my career goals, interests, skills and experience to the point where she had a really in depth understanding of what I was looking for. She was realistic about the process and having never done temping before, she talked me through how it all works clearly and in detail which was greatly appreciated. I got interviews with big companies like Asda from the start, all while receiving detailed advice and support from Kirsty throughout the process including interview prep and recommended research. She also stayed in touch regularly to keep me updated with her search, something that other agencies do not do. She was responsive to email and via phone so it was easy to ask any questions whenever I needed to (also something other agencies are typically poor at doing).
    Kirsty was kind enough to pass over my name to Davina who was recruiting for a permanent role with a global credit company in Leeds and secured me an interview after a detailed chat about the role. I firmly believe that I secured my first permanent role post-degree because of Davina and Kirsty's best efforts and personal service and am greatly indebted to them!

  • Very glad that I chose Jo Holdsworth Recruitment to help me find my current Job. The process was very quick and very simple. Kirsty was particularly helpful as my consultant, especially as she got to know me personally and helped me find a role in something I had very little experience in. Overall, I am very impressed with the service and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking to find a new role in something more career based.

  • JHR have been absolutely great in helping me find exactly the kind of work I was looking for. Kirsty was extremely helpful in finding the right role for me and I felt she always had my best interests at heart.
