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.

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.

I was coached and prepared for every interview, received lots of valuable advice and continuous feedback. I just felt in the right hands and as a result I got the job I wanted.

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.

We approached tfconnect from the US to find us a business development resource support in Europe. We were blown away by the quality of candidates that tfconnect put in front of us for what was a difficult brief. Support was proactive and the quality of service excellent, with tfconnect staff operating as a true partner / extension of our team.

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!

tfconnect are far and away the nicest and most professional [recruiters] to deal with. Will not hesitate to recommend you to anyone I know so keep up the good work!

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.

Jon was extremely supportive in helping me find my new position. He didn’t waste my time by sending me roles which weren’t right for me, and he took the time to really find out what I was looking for in my career. It is clear that he is truly invested in his candidates. He coached me from my pre-interview wobbles through how to hand in my notice and even kept in touch in once I started my new job – a level of service I never experienced from another recruiter. If you are looking for your next step in the event industry, give him a call!

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.

“We came to tfconnect for a Business Development Director, and the result has been perfect for us. I’d go as far as to say that this has turned out to be the best sales role hire I’ve ever made! Thank you, tfconnect!”

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