Meet Kara

Kara Atkinson, Headhunter of 18 years, CEO of “The Sales Recruiter” and Founder of “SPARC | The Sales Leader Network”, has assisted more than 1,000 Sales Leaders into their next role.

Kara is fuelled by the opportunity to help people continue to build and transform themselves through their career. In 2019, Kara launched SPARC into the marketplace; a network for Elite Sales Leaders.

It’s not rare for Kara to place someone in more than one role throughout their career. This demonstrates Kara’s uniqueness in her commitment to helping people build careers, as opposed to the usual bums on seats attitude that might be great for the short term but is not sustainable for the long term.

Kara is very approachable. You can feel very comfortable to have an open and honest conversation with her. Please get in touch with Kara to discuss your sales team and your sales career.

Whether you are a CEO, Office Manager, Sales Director, PA, Marketing Manager or Account Manager – if you are not approaching your search with a strategic mindset, you will lose control and become powerless in what may already be an emotionally vulnerable time.

  • “Kara has recently managed a search process for us for a branch manager role in regional Victoria. The specific region the role is based in has in the past proved extremely challenging for us to find the right talent in for key roles. Kara was able to draw in and present some excellent candidates, with great diversity of background and skill sets, all serious viable contenders, yet with very different offerings between them. I asked for a good range, and Kara delivered. She suitably challenged our paradigms in regards to the type of candidate we might have otherwise looked at, and I am pleased to say that we have ended up going with a person of very different profile than we would have traditionally considered, yet who offers us so much more than we would have got from the usual field.”

  • “Kara is an outstanding human resource professional with a wide portfolio of skills and sound judgment. We use Kara for tricky human resource issues from senior recruitment to embedding good management practice. I have no hesitation in recommending Kara.”
    Dean Morelli —Chairman, Employgroup
  • “I would certainly recommend Kara as a recruiter. I have never had a successful experience with a recruitment company in my working career. That is until I recently dealt with Kara. What makes Kara different from the others is her in depth knowledge of her clients and the role being offered. This gives her the ability to identify the correct skill set in the candidate. Purely from a candidates point of view, you really feel as though Kara is in your corner and you are both on the same team with a common goal. Needless to say, I got the job. Thanks Kara, I couldn't have done it without you.”

  • “After being contacted by many recruiters on LinkedIn with very little of them following through, I can honestly say that Kara Atkinson has proven to be the most professional with her follow up and qualifying criteria. Her staff and professional approach to appointing sales positions to the right candidates is some of the best in the industry. Congratulations on your professional approach and ongoing success rate.”
