Before Tiro, I was working in recruitment for another company and although I really enjoyed the role itself, I thought there was more to it than just the rigid hours and responsibilities. I wanted a better work life balance with more autonomy. The trust to do my daily tasks and work through my day without constantly being checked on and my KPI’s watched by someone.

I needed a new environment, I needed a place where I went to work and the focus was it was high performance with a high trust environment and Tiro ticked every box when I came to visit and chat with Will & Paul. They just treated people like people, trusted them to work through their day and deliver results. The culture aligned with my aspirations for my career. They are a much more accommodating employer, a far better work/social life balance then I as previously getting and belief gives me real sense of value to them.

After joining Tiro, in the first few months I hit the ground running with securing some major accounts, I performed well, hitting my targets and keeping a constant stream of business through the lockdown period with the hard work I put in. I realised Tiro was the right place for me when I wasn’t harassed on KPI’s or had everything questioned. I was given the trust and autonomy to do my job and after a few weeks it hit me that this is what I was looking for. I had a solid foundation underneath me and the team are helping me to now grow, learn and expand the contract team.

What is it about your current role that gets you up in the morning? Being able to grow my desk and pass my knowledge on to the others in my team, furthering my career. The team at Tiro really encourage you to push yourself to learn and grow and you find things out about yourself you didn’t know before.

Tiro is completely opposite to other recruitment companies I’ve worked in and heard of. What really stands out for me is the high performance, high trust culture they have built. They trust their staff to get on with business, it’s what we were brought in to do and they believe in us to do it with the flexibility too.

Before Tiro, I was managing a team for another recruitment company. I was heavily involved with the business and the direction of it but I didn’t buy into the company values, and didn’t see the top level management as aspirational. I needed something that gave me that drive where I feel valued and those above me felt the same.

A good friend spoke very highly about Tiro, he suggested my goals would be more achievable in a better environment and Tiro was the place for me. I considered it and had a conversation with Will and Paul. I felt as though the two founders were driven, personable and we all on the same page. We wanted to build and get out of a recruitment business and change the way a typical recruitment business works which was a breath of fresh air to me.

The first few months at Tiro were amazing, it was great to get back to basics and roll back the years with the mind to build strong foundations for the future and the team we have so far are incredible. It is great to wake up and have everyone singing of the same hymn sheet. A busy loud office is the best thing to come into! Tiro has put me in a position where I am able to influence and direct the way the company will go from here on in which is engaging and exciting at the same time

My role has constantly been evolving in the space of just under 3 years. It has been a lot different to other companies I have worked for. Being heavily involved in the growth of the whole company is massively fulfilling and being able to be so responsive to our clients needs because of our size is a big plus point. This is just that start!  

Before my career in recruitment, I was playing football then after fell into Recruitment. My path crossed with Tiro when someone at Hunted approached me on the opportunity to setup a new office and expand the Tiro brand within engineering!

I had a conversation with Will & Paul and their ambitions aligned with my own, they had big plans and everything about them as people, the business they ere building and the culture they were breeding within the office and company ticked all my boxes and was a no-brainer.

At first, it was a lot of hard work with Qas. We were in a 2 man box office then working remotely through COVID and we got through it. Within 6 months we made our first hire and the ball got rolling in that aspect. Even with the hard work, I knew from from the first day I started, Tiro was the workplace for me. I’m working in a Director position where I have the autonomy to put my own flare on the business and the team. Grow and coach people how we think is best and our ambition is to grow the team to a minimum of 20 heads.

I love seeing the office do well, that’s what gets me up in the morning. As a business, Will & Paul have created a place where we as leaders can encourage and push the team and our colleagues lives for the better, give them financial freedom and so much more as a person you would love to have from an employer.
