Mission: TSP’s mission is” Every good deed deserves a good leader”, every individual we help recruit should be able to make a measurable difference for the well being of society. Third Sector Partners is a boutique high-end executive search firm serving social and corporate sector clients desirous of recruiting exceptional talent at senior management and Board levels, who will make a measurable impact to the world of have-nots and bottom of the pyramid markets. Third Sector Partner’s mission, “Every Good Deed Deserves Every Good Leader” fills the void which has plagued the sector for many years: leadership quality of top management in positions of change and influence.  The profits it creates are hived back into a home grown initiative “Katalyst” which, in keeping with the spirit of “commitment to core competencies in service of the society”, helps identify talented girls from underprivileged communities and gives them a chance at life through education, personality development and life skills. Katalyst hopes to staff the world of future management with women leaders of substance. And so that none of this becomes the privilege of a few and the domain of talent and leadership search becomes inclusive, self-sustaining and almost a movement, Third Sector Partrners has recently launched barefootjobs.org, an online job portal exclusively dedicated to the not-for-profit, development, corporate social responsibility and sustainability sectors.

Three months back, I planned to stretch myself beyond what I have been doing, and I wanted to prove myself. To my surprise, one fine morning Ms.Namita from Third Sector Partners contacted about the position matching to my Candidature in a reputed agency. Trust me, I am not aware of this agency prior to this process. Thus, after completing all the selection process I was in a fix to take decision. Seriously, I totally decided to refuse to accept this offer but Ms.Namita and Ms.Pari provided their positive encouragement which motivated me to rethink on my decision. During the whole process, I never felt I was interacting with new persons, but I had a feeling that I am interacting with my very old friends. I appreciate their service and professionalism of Third Sector partners.

We used Third Sector Partners to help us fill a senior position within our organisation. As this was the first time we had used a recruitment agency to find a candidate for our organisation working with Third Sector Partners was helpful for us in a variety of ways. It gave us an understanding of how to use an external agency to support our recruitment process and also helped us clarify how we want to move forward with other senior positions. Third Sector Partners was prompt in responding to deadlines and follow up. We hope that through this partnership we will be able to find a suitable candidate.

I have interfaced with the Third Sector Partner team twice over the last two years and found them transparent, upfront, professional and rigorous in their process. They bring high value to the senior level placement market in the non-profit sector. They have been particularly innovative in placing cross-over candidates from the corporate sector at senior positions in non-profts.

I first got introduced to Katalyst two and a half years ago. Given that I work with the Citizenship department of a Multi National Company, the first meeting was a professional introductary meeting. What I found most inetresting is the concept of mentoring. I, therefore decided to mentor two of Katalysts, bright ladies. Two years into the program it has been a great learing experience for me. Katalyst has played a critical role in putting a structure to this very important initiative. Mentoring can go a long way in shaping ones carrier but to have a successful mentoring program running for a longer time is indeed a commendable achievement.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Structuring my mentorship - ensure continuity, Setting goals, plan ahead of time.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Their professional approach, proactive role, focus on impact and measurement. Diligence in reporting.

Scale its program countrywide. The program has potential not only to be scaled up but also to be repliacted as best practice.

Ways to make it better...

So far my experience has been very fulfilling.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

While the organizations is making significant impcat in the lives of many individuals, but it needs to scale up for larger impact.

I’m Navya jyothi and I have completed my graduation from Sri Venkateshwara College of Engineering. I'm associated with KATALYST from past 6 months. Katalyst is helping me in pursuing my post graduation and also in finding jobs. Apart from financial assistance as any other NGOs do Katalyst stands unique because of its training sessions such as classes on communication skills, personality development, aptitude classes, C classes and on life skills etc. I have also joined vani institute of technology for GATE coaching through Katalyst. Katalyst also has a mentorship program in which each student has a mentor who provides us guidance on finding jobs and other communication skills. Katalyst is mainly for meritorious girls. I’m grateful and consider myself fortunate to be a part of Third Sector Partners.
