Tarson Ltd is a small, niche executive search practice that has been successfully working specifically within a narrow sector of the property market, Town Planning for over a decade. The Tarson Directors pride themselves on thinking outside of the box and organically building a successful business model that does not always conform to the typical 'recruitment agency’ model. Our place in the market fills the gap between contingency recruiters and corporate executive search firms.
Rather than just filling a vacancy by awaiting CV applications, we also take a far more proactive approach by researching, identifying and actively sourcing excellent calibre candidates who suit our client’s needs. This places Tarson right in between your typical recruitment agencies and targeted head-hunters. Tarson is continually evolving and as a result, we are now on the lookout for a new motivated team member.
A person with something a bit special and who has something out of the ordinary to offer. Someone who is dynamic, creative, innovative and ambitious will fit right in. Our philosophy is simply that you get out what you put in. If you are driven and work hard, the financial rewards can be astounding!
Working alongside the Tarson Directors, meeting with prospective clients, meeting candidates and building the company portfolio.
Understanding and developing (through training/mentoring) a sound knowledge of the industry that we specialise in, Town Planning, will be an essential part of this role.
Being confident and dynamic on the telephone, with an excellent manner; this role will involve introducing yourself and the company to new prospective candidates daily to discuss opportunities.
Researching relevant candidates in the market and compiling comprehensive lists of potential candidates for further suitability, analysis and shortlisting. This will include: using various sources including databases/internet/personal research etc. to form detailed reports. Actively contacting potential candidates via telephone/email/face to face and via internet sources.
Database maintenance: building relationships with candidates to keep up to date on their availability for future employment opportunities, to discuss current vacancies that may interest them and to remain knowledgeable about their specific job requirements and preferences – all the while keeping a personal touch!
Identifying candidate’s skills to match appropriately with current vacancies.
Over time, developing a sound knowledge and understanding of Tarson clients that we provide a service to, and what type of candidates suit their business needs. From this, you will begin to identify candidates who match not only a vacancy specification, but also those who fit in with a client’s company culture and business model perfectly.
Liaising with clients and candidates to manage the entire process including setting up interviews, providing feedback to both parties, and ultimately successfully assisting in placing candidates into new positions of work! Using business development and marketing techniques to promote Tarson vacancies.
Advertising of vacancies and drafting job specifications. Briefing candidates about the responsibilities, salary, benefits of job opportunities relevant to them.
