If you're looking to expand your team or replace someone on a permanent or temporary basis, contact us for a friendly, informed conversation. We recognise that every hire is a unique assignment, and we work with our clients to find the right hire. Our priority is finding the best candidate for each role we look after. Send us your vacancy details now and let us help you find the talent you need.

Permanent Hires

Finding talent quickly on a no commitment basis

If you are looking for an immediate, precise and cost-effective response on a ‘contingency’ no-placement/no-fee basis, we can help.  We’ve been identifying talented marketing people for many years, and we know our market well.

When you work with us, you’ll have a dedicated consultant as a single point of contact for the duration of the assignment, with a remit to understand your role, from technical skills through to cultural fit.

We’ll be honest about our ability to meet the brief, the timings, the current market conditions and possible issues we may face. If it’s a vacancy we believe we can fill, we’ll promote the opportunity to our existing candidate base and carefully search our network, championing your brief, and identifying, interviewing and briefing suitable candidates.  We’ll search widely for the best people, and submit only the CVs that meet your requirements.  We can promise that we’ll never deluge you with CVs.  For us, it’s all about quality not quantity.

For each candidate we submit, we’ll detail our thinking and provide an assessment of the candidate’s suitability for the vacancy.  Usually, we’ll send you the strongest candidates as we find them, but we can also pull together a shortlist on an agreed date.  Once you select candidates of interest, we’ll work with you to arrange interviews, ensure candidates are well-briefed and provide detailed feedback post-interview, managing the process from follow-up interviews to job offer, acceptance and successful placement with transparency and honesty at all times.  We’ll advise on salary requirements and, where possible, do our best to achieve the optimum start date.

Please contact us today to discuss your requirements.

Contract/Interim HIRES

People who can hit the ground running

With many companies needing short-term support for projects, specialist resources or to fill specific skills gaps or to cover career absences, our consultants are all experienced in working with clients to fill contract, interim or temp-to-perm vacancies.

Whether you have a fixed term contract, or a shorter day-rate vacancy, we will help you to fill your role as quickly as possible. We apply the same rigorous disciplines that we use to find permanent hires, but will immediately review a pool of talented, pre-interviewed candidates ready to start their next contract for different roles and levels.  Your dedicated consultant will move with the pace and urgency needed to find someone who can join you quickly and hit the ground running from the first day.

Executive Search

Identifying senior or specialist talent fast with an Accelerated Search

For more senior roles at director level or head of function, typically with salaries of £100K or more, or where you are seeking that exceptional skill-set or track record in a specific industry or sector, Tarsh & Partners offer our Accelerated Search approach.

An Accelerated Search follows our proven and trusted recruitment framework, but will allow us to dedicate a little more time and room to understand the detail and nuances of your role, and tailor our approach to your specific requirements.

When we manage a search project, we can mention your brand in advertising or social media, or we can run the project blind, only disclosing details to potential candidates.

  • Meeting with key stakeholders to understand the role, objectives, challenges, business context and compensation
  • Definition of search framework - target sectors and companies, priority skills and experience, personal style
  • Exhaustive, rapid talent search, leveraging our network via focused headhunting, advertising and social media
  • Rigorous candidate screening interviews, selection and rapid shortlist process
  • Initial limited retainer invoiced on brief, with balance of the fee paid only on successful placement 

Working with your job profile, person specification and/or competency model, we’ll be the first contact on behalf of your business, and will represent your brand with a discreet, professional approach to prospective candidates.

Our insight into your culture and objectives, will ensure that shortlisted candidates share your values, beliefs and aspirations, and have the technical skills and ambitions to deliver results.  We will be transparent and clear about any issues and challenges as the assignment progresses, sharing feedback and updating you regularly.  We’ll be quick and punchy in our approach, so we find you the best possible candidate, avoiding over-thinking the assignment or unnecessary delays.

With an Accelerated Search, from initial brief, we’ll aim to deliver a shortlist of candidates within 2-4 weeks with a target of achieving an accepted offer within 6-8 weeks.

The core values that drive everything we do

Passionate about marketing

As consumer marketers by background, our consultants have built sector knowledge and technical marketing understanding from first-hand experience, retaining a keen interest in developments within the marketing world. Ensuring we understand the needs of our clients and candidates in detail is imperative for us and 100% how we operate.

Results, delivery & service

Our team is consultative, results-driven and tenacious. We deliver an excellent recruitment experience with a high quality of service, whilst always investing in our marketing to attract the highest-calibre and most suitable candidates. Our focus is on reducing the workload for our clients, who know we will energetically advocate for their brands and represent them best.

Acting with integrity, always.

We are dedicated to providing an honest, fair and transparent service that matches the right candidate with the right job, offering guidance and control over their CVs; never breaking confidences and never putting people under pressure to accept roles. Our clients receive only relevant CVs, and are never rushed into making hasty decisions.

Rigorous, detailed and analytically focused

We believe that effective communication and collaboration are key to recruitment success, always asking the right questions to understand the needs of both candidates and clients.  We flag concerns and potential issues with job briefs and recruitment processes, and screen candidates carefully before sending anything to our clients.

Proactive and positive

Our approach is positive, pro-active and highly targeted.  We focus on both short and long-term priorities, building lasting relationships with candidates and clients, who understand that they have dedicated and experienced consultants to work with.  We know our promise is not so different from any quality recruiter, but our tenacity, dedication to the task and consultative approach most certainly are.
