Tara is world class…I have connected with many consultants over the years both personally and for recruiting and Tara brings joy to the process. In a nutshell..she listens! Yes actually listens and understands the needs and the what’s important yet tenacious in every way to achieve a collaborative result. Above all she is just good fun to work with, loves to laugh and is a lovely family person that I value.

Karl Jones

I would most certainly recommend Tara and NEED recruitment for hiring top talent. Tara takes the stress away from recruitment so you can get on with your core business. Tara takes the time to get to know you, the business and the team dynamic and doing her upmost to ensure the candidates are the best culture fit.Tara has placed our whole business support and management team from GM through to reception roles, we all gel really well and compliment each other ~ Thanks Tara and thanks NEED for always having our best interests at heart.

Leah Brown

Administration Manager at New Zealand Ministry of Foreign Affairs & Trade

I have known Tara for over eight years and she has never failed to find an office superstar! What I like is how Tara really understands the team dynamics to find the right personality, often with very little information to go on. This shows the depth of her experience in recruitment. 100% trustworthy, she is a delight to work with and candidates only speak highly of her. If you are looking for an office or finance temp or permanent staff then look no further than Tara.

Dominic Henderson

Director I Engineering & Environmental Recruitment Specialist at Enginurity

Tara was amazing right through the entire recruitment process. She was considerate to what I was looking for and endeavoured to find me a role that would make that a reality. I don’t hesitate to contact Tara whenever I am looking for a new role and I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking a great recruiter. I feel I not only scored a great recruiter but also a great friend. She really has your back.

Tara is a fantastic recruiter who works for both candidates and clients to ensure the perfect fit. Supportive and friendly and always up for a laugh, she’s an absolute pleasure to deal with.

Executive Assistant

Tara Fisher possesses a deep knowledge of the financial services sector and works with a wide network of well-qualified individuals across a range of job disciplines. What I value the most is that she always listens but is never afraid to push back (possibly the Scottish heritage) when she feels that someone is the right fit for our business. Having a partnership with Tara has significantly improved our time-to-hire and the quality of candidates. Highly recommend Tara.
