Why recruitment and why the Tarsh Partnership?
Having trained as a marketer with Tesco and following brief spells with Woolworths and in the integrated agency world, when I made the decision to leave marketing I found myself at a career crossroad. A period of introspection followed, during which I realised two things still interested me – marketing and people. In some respects, recruitment was a natural next step in my career.
When I established The Tarsh Partnership I wanted a business that reflected what I saw in most of my marketing colleagues: a down to earth yet professional business; a company with a drive and ambition yet one that managed to retain a sense of humour and a personal touch. Most important though: one that understood how marketers think.
What is your area of specialism within the business?
As a recruiter I gravitate towards non-FMCG roles, though I have recruited across a wide range of industries, from classic grocery and fashion retail, through to telecoms and financial services. The roles I cover are equally broad, from classic brand management through communications roles into insight and research. In short, if you are unsure where your next move might be, I would be the best person to contact.
