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.

It has helped me to improve my academics & communication skills. It has assisted me to groom my personality. My mentor & project co-coordinator have guided me from time to time & supported morally.

It was a nice experience for me being telephonically interviewed by Archana of Third Sector Partners for the position of General Manager (West) for AKRSPI. I came to know about Third Sector Partners from one of my colleague in PRADAN. In the past two months, there were about eight interactions. Each interaction was in an open, comfortable and facilitative environment. They have a genuine interest in other person and try to explore various dimensions from interviewee’s point of view. They have good listening ability and have empathy for others. I enjoyed each discussion with Archana. She has the ability of active listening and giving space to me which encouraged me to share more about myself. Her clear communication skills helped me to link my professional experiences and skills for the position advertised. I was kept updated about the developments. It was really a pleasant experience.

I have found my experience with Third Sector Partners to be really professional and responsive. I have been interacting with them in various capacities (as potential candidate, as a referee for others etc). Their procedures for review and selection of clients are tranparent and thorough. I would strongly recommend them for a recruitment process. Shaleen Rakesh Director-Technical Support International HIV/AIDS Alliance in India

Real job hunters, a professional in true sense, Third sector Partners (TSP)dug out my name as potential candidate for a position for which, I would not have known without them, based on my CV posted on the internet a few days back. The initial reaction was a little reluctance as I was not having much knowledge about the TSP, but my confidence in them grew with time as they approached in such a professional and organised manner that I started realising that my dream job may become a reality soon.

A former colleague and friend of mine had told Third Sector Partners about me in 2008. Sometime in the middle of last year they got in touch with me regarding a job placement with a NGO based at Shimla. However though I was interested in the job as it fitted my qualifications and experience I could not shift base from Delhi. This year around a month back Third Sector Partners contacted me again regarding a vacancy in a reputed NGO working on rural development. They have been extremely helpful to me and we are now in the final stages of this particular job application. I am keeping my fingers crossed and do hope that I get selected. If that happens all credit will go to Third Sector Partners for having recommended my name for this particular opening. I wish them all the best as their contribution will help many development professionals like me to get jobs in the NGO sector.

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

The staff of Third Sector partners are extremely helpful, polite and know their work well! They can really help professionals like me to get jobs according to their qualifications and experience. Their contribution in the development sector is commendable

I found the whole process of short listing , fixing interviews and arranging logistics, extremely well handled and there was a human touch about it. At every stage , there was consideration for my constraints and pre arranged schedules and effort made to overcome these hurdles. There was a human touch to the interaction. There were at times, too many phone calls, but looking back, my experience was warm and extremely cordial. In my case, I was not the candidate selected by the party, and I felt that this news was broken rather too abruptly ; however it is entirely possible that there was no better way to communicate this kind of awkward news.
