Tamsin, joined Macildowie in 2002 having worked in recruitment since 1996, and she successfully grew the temporary and permanent finance market in our Nottinghamshire market before deciding to move offices in order to use her experience to develop and grow the Leicestershire, Coventry and Warwickshire Finance market. As Managing Consultant she is also key in providing support, mentoring and training of our newer Macildowie team members when it comes to all things Temporary/Interim.
Tamsin has been one of Macildowie’s most successful consultants over the years, and continues to be whilst working closely with her equally as successful, East Midlands permanent team, her expertise being the recruitment of part qualified/qualified/senior level Temporary/Interim Finance markets across the East Midlands.
"As an international student studying in the UK, finding professional work is near impossible. However, the consistent perseverance of Tamsin and Ben made my dream of gaining valuable UK work experience a reality!
I contacted numerous other leading recruiters around England during my job search, and none of them made me feel like I was their number 1 priority, but Tamsin and Ben did! They took their time to understand my skills and experience and made sure I was put forward for the appropriate roles to further strengthen my CV.
They have fantastic connections with industry giants and briefed me extensively before my interview which helped calm my nerves on the day. Ben was fantastic in giving me the confidence that I was the best candidate for the vacancy and Tamsin was in contact with me almost every week updating me on roles available.
I thoroughly recommend Tamsin and Ben, to anyone who is looking to enhance their CV! I wish Tamsin and Ben all the best in their future endeavours as well. THANK YOU!"
"I have known Tamsin Eastaugh of Macildowie for over 4 years, during which time she has identified suitable contract roles which I have successfully worked on.
When looking for the right role you need more than just help and assistance from your recruitment consultant - you need to feel that you are being listened to, that the consultant is taking your skill sets, achievements , qualifications and experience into consideration when assessing you for the next assignment- and Tamsin is , in my opinion , quite possibly the best there is. Tamsin is discreet, efficient, and always professional - someone whose opinion you can rely on.
Tamsin is quite simply a great recruiter, and friend whose advice I value."
"I really appreciate all your help with finding a role for me and all your assistance.
I really appreciate you taking the time to come visit me so you could help me prepare for second round interviews.
It was a fantastic opportunity but unfortunately another fantastic opportunity materialised and I just felt a better personal fit.
You have really helped me and gone beyond what you would expect as standard. Thank you for helping me with all the other aspects. I would highly recommend your services".
"You have been great to me. Very different to other agencies. You are far superior than others".
"Just wanted to thank you and Jamie for your time yesterday, it was much appreciated.
It was refreshing to meet recruiters that were honest, open and direct.
The most comfortable meetings I have experienced to date".
"I just wanted to say thank you for all your help in finding me the job at Barratt Developments.
I can honestly say that from meeting with you on the Wednesday morning, over coffee, to the phone call advising confirmation of a job offer, I found the whole experience very professional and very friendly and encouraging. We discussed my concerns of going for interviews, having not been for interviews for over 12 years, and you made me feel at ease, and encouraged me to “just be myself, and smile more”!
Having dealt with other agencies over the recent months I would say that Macildowie is top of the list, and not just because of a job offer, but because of the friendliness and professionalism shown. This extends even to a congratulations/good luck card arriving through the post from yourself - fantastic :)
So I would just like to say thanks again, I’m thoroughly enjoying working at Barratts, and hope that it goes on further than the 9 months on the initial agreement (fingers crossed)".
"Thank you for your assistance in finding Sam, she has been a great help, she has taken on the capacity building project and has worked tirelessly to ensure that all costs are correct and helping the project managers to understand their budgets. Her diligence has also prevented the company having to repay thousands of pounds, she has also been a pleasure to work with over the last 6 months".
"As regards yourself I would just like to say a big thank you for finding me this assignment which was a good match for me and I have to say I will be quite sorry to leave Macildowie. I have been really impressed with everything you have done for me and the way you did it. It seemed to me that you had a quick grasp of my experience and what I wanted from a job which was great. I thought the service from your office was good as well as I got paid on time each and every week with no problems! So thank you to everyone there I would certainly recommend you to other people".
"When I was looking for a new position, Tamsin provided me with the clear advice I needed in order that I could land my ideal role. Now that I have that role, I will recommend Macildowie and Tamsin in particular to fulfil any requirements we may have”.
“Tamsin provided me with my latest position at encore. She always informed me of my progress with the interview, information required and is and still is very helpful to me. she is a very approachable and personable person and makes you feel supported. I would not hesitate to recommend her for her services.”
“I have found Tamsin to be a true professional, highly skilled and utterly trustworthy in all aspects of recruitment and my dealings with her and her firm over the last six years. I wholeheartedly recommend her as a contact for specialist finance recruitment.”
Outside of work, along with enjoying travelling & visiting different countries, I’m a bit of health & exercise enthusiast! I love the feeling of pushing my body so really enjoy Pilates, yoga, Hiit & Body Combat, plus these all help with my main passion which is running - the freedom of being outdoors is amazing (aside from the occasional injuries!) & am a regular Park Runner. I’m also passionate about charity fundraising & I normally set myself a yearly challenge, which has enabled me to raise thousands for CRUK, Breast Cancer Charities & others!
