Tanja is a solicitor by trade- having trained at the City firm Taylor Wessing. She qualified into litigation but not being at all litigious, she moved after 3 years into legal recruitment. Tanja took a career break to raise her family, during which time she retrained as a personal development and career coach and established her own business Tanja Spittal Career Coaching.
When Tanja heard about the Reignite Academy through Stephanie Dillon in 2019, she realised this was an opportunity to combine all her skills and experience. She is now a careers consultant and interviews and places returning lawyers into City firms. Tanja also plays a vital role as a coach during the first few months of our candidates’ time back at work and is our main day to day point of contact during those early days of transition.
