What Makes Us Different?

Integrity

We operate as a business partner – not a recruitment agency. Responsible recruitment is at the heart of what we do.

Quality

…over quantity! We believe that less is more and we’ll only send you pre-qualified candidates after taking references and getting to know them.

Reach

We don’t just move ex-pats, our network of both clients and candidates is truly global and spans more than 20 countries over 6 continents.

Relationships

With over 25 years’ experience in events, we have close working relationships (and friendships) with many senior players in the industry. This gives us a powerful referral network, extending the reach of our search services.

Insight

Our experience as an event organiser and our proximity to thought leaders in the industry means that we have an unparalleled understanding of the challenges your business may be facing.

Versatility

While we’re known for our specialism in senior talent search, we also work with mid-level talent, helping to build sales and marketing teams and help to fulfill all kinds of event management and commercial roles – even finance and HR.

The team at tfconnect have delivered at every level, advice, tactics and candidate delivery. They have been a joy to work with.

Having worked with several recruitment agencies in the past couple of years, I have found tfconnect to be very professional, providing useful, personalised advice and linked with a good network of companies.

Trevor Foley needs no introduction in the expo world, and it’s easy to see the strengths he brings to the agency, which combine to produce a quality approach to matching senior execs to the right organisations.

Trevor is a very exceptional person who really has a gift to connect people and he is doing it professionally, with a smile. He’s a good hand for selecting interesting people.

I was recommended to try tfconnect by a senior member of the global event industry and immediately it was a refreshing experience! Being managed by Tim Rusbridge and others in the team has been a pleasure and I would happily recommend them to both recruiters and candidates for the efficient and friendly service they provide.

Owen always goes the extra mile to find the perfect fit and make it happen.

We used tfconnect to headhunt a new business leader in an overseas territory. It was a positive experience – the tfc team were great at unearthing good candidates quickly and efficiently and we successfully filled the position. Give them a try!

I am extremely impressed with the way the team at tfconnect have dealt with my job search. And a special thank you to Natasha Layal, she was very thorough during the full process, which has resulted in me being placed in front of the perfect opportunities that match my character, skill set and experience. I have dealt with many agencies around the world throughout my career and genuinely haven’t come across anyone that has worked to such a high standard.

I was very impressed with quality of candidates that tfconnect sent my way. Having done a significant amount of hiring, my experience is that recruiting firms take some time to “get it right” as far as the type of people I was looking for. If this is the beginning, I look forward to many more collaborations with tfconnect.

Owen was a pleasure to work with throughout the recruitment process and was very helpful in finding me my upcoming role at a great company. He provided excellent advice and help on all levels. There was a key focus on finding the right role for me from the outset, and Owen was great at keeping in touch with updates and handing any issues. Very good, well rounded, personal service! I highly recommend Owen!

Thank you so much for your professionalism and good humour. You are truly a talented recruiter and I enjoyed working with you very much.

Owen has successfully placed me twice in my career. First looking after a Saudi operation and now heading up a recent acquisition in Indonesia. From learning of the opportunity to receiving an offer took around three to four weeks. I really appreciate everything and I’m loving it here.
