Owen Mills stands out. His approach to recruiting, client and company research, coupled with effective communication are quite simply superb. He will never tell you what you want to hear if it is not what you need to hear. I would wholeheartedly recommend him and tfconnect on every level.

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.

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.

tfconnect listened to what I was looking for, didn't waste my time with inappropriate vacancies and placed me with exactly the right company...

Event Director, Totally Gaming 

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.

PT Infrastructure Asia (Tarsus Group) 

Throughout the recruiting process, Owen demonstrated professionalism, was quick to respond to questions and was solution driven. What I appreciated the most was his transparency and his willingness to listen to the candidate's needs and expectations. I look forward to working again with Owen and his team at tfconnect in the very near future.

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

Ventmann Consulting 

Hayley is, simply put, the best consultant I have come across in recent years. She is approachable and friendly and an excellent communicator. Most importantly, after only a few conversations, as a candidate, she understood my needs fully and was always on hand to talk through roles and opportunities without pestering me for whatever (unsuitable) role was easiest to fill at the time. If you're looking for a role in exhibitions and events, this is who you come to!
