Delighted to introduce you to Tanja Spittal who joined the team recently as a career consultant & coach. Tanja began life as in the City as a litigator but frankly I don’t think you could meet anyone less litigious, so it’s understandable that she soon swapped that career for one in legal recruitment, where she spent some time placing unhappy lawyers into happier jobs.
Like many of us, she eventually found combining career, commute and children involved too much compromise and took a career break during which she trained as a life coach and set up Giraffe coaching (“helping you stick your neck out”). Which is how she ran into Steph … and the rest, as they say, is history.
Tanja is now combining all that legal, recruitment and coaching experience and as well as helping us find candidates, she will be acting as a first point of contact during the first few weeks of any programme, checking in on progress, resolving any immediate issues etc.
Her highlight so far?
She says: “Interviewing people and realising that wherever you are there are women of incredible seniority and experience who are lacking in confidence – and knowing we can do something to help that.”
We say: taking a handful of Reignite brochures to hand out to the senior partners of a magic circle firm at a black tie event. (She was there as a guest!)
