Kate Illsley

Senior Consultant – Microsoft Development


Kate is a Consultant at Method Recruitment Group specialising in recruiting .Net Developers (and has a growing flair for exploring the field of UX).

With over five years of experience, Kate understands that the Melbourne market is relationship based, and loves to create long term relationships in person. Kate seeks out gem candidates at meetups and networking events to tap into the passive market. Her client relationships are built upon trust and transparency, as she loves to dig deep and understand the wider business requirements and cultural side of a team.

Kate is Method’s event fanatic and has organised Startup Weekend for the past six years and is always looking for new ways to involve and educate exciting people in the tech and start-up communities. With a passion for diversity, Kate also volunteers for VIC ICT Women’s Grad Girl program to support young women at university to start their STEAM careers.

Kate holds a Bachelor of Commerce (Management and Marketing) from the University of Adelaide and is currently learning JavaScript, so she can better understand her candidates and clients.
