Three years ago, Paul Conaghan and William Excell fulfilled their long-time ambition by becoming Directors and Co-Founders of their very own IT consultancy firm, Tiro Partners. By utilising Paul and William’s 25 years of IT recruitment experience, the agency now contends with major players in the recruitment field, and the pair have indisputably built a reputable yet niche IT recruitment business. Specialising in project and product management, business analysis, architecture, development, and testing, the agency has a long history of successful delivery across a variety of sectors, including media, retail, and finance.
Refreshingly, the foundations of Tiro Partners are built upon strong person-to-person candidate-client relationships. Tiro Partners is not corporate, nor does it aspire to be. This goes a long way towards explaining how such a small niche agency has been able to participate in such a competitive market. The consultants at Tiro Partners pride themselves on being industry experts with a personal touch. They have a genuine passion for exceptional customer experience, so they make sure to take the time to understand the needs of their candidates and clients.
This mentality undoubtedly stems from the co-founders’ risky decision to move out of the central London zone, a year and a half after Tiro Partners’ establishment. Both Paul and William craved the restoration of work-life balance after starting young families outside of the city. Despite risking candidate attraction with the relocation, the decision has undoubtedly worked to Tiro Partners’ benefit.
