Why recruitment and why the Tarsh Partnership?
After graduating from university without a clear idea of what I wanted to do, I joined a graduate training scheme in FMCG, looking for a broad, all round training. Ten years later, having worked across a number of interesting roles in brand and product marketing, one thing became crystal clear to me; whilst I enjoyed the marketing, it was the people that really motivated me. Having worked with Adam Tarsh who had helped me to find my most recent role, I trusted his opinion and when he suggested recruitment, I jumped at the chance to join him.
After three very happy and successful years in recruitment, I took an extended break to raise my young family, returning to a local, part time role in 2010. It wasn’t long before I was ready to take things up a gear and in 2012 I joined the team at The Tarsh Partnership full time. For me, the people are key; working with like-minded colleagues, our ethos and approach, the clients and candidates and the chance to make a difference are what really motivate me.
What is your area of specialism within the business?
I don’t really have one! With a good few miles on the clock, and having worked in different industries, I am able to turn my hand to most things. I enjoy a challenge and I am continually learning new ways to help clients to fill a tricky role where maybe other recruiters have struggled. From a candidate perspective, I love working with junior candidates making early moves in their career, but I also enjoy the chance to kick ideas around with the more experienced candidate, or parents looking to return to the workplace after having a break.
One piece of advice you would give to a candidate looking for a new role?
Follow your dream, pursue your goal, aim high – but at the same time, be pragmatic and realistic.
One piece of advice you would give clients?
Speed is of the essence! If you see a candidate you like, it’s a safe bet that someone else likes them too, so be decisive and grab them while you can!
