Nonprofit Overview

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.

Results: Have enrolled 110 students since our inception

The Third sector Partners (TSP) contacted me in 2008 for a vacant post of Director, Gujarat Institute of Desert Ecology (GUIDE), Bhuj (Gujarat). I was very much impressed by the efficient working of TSP, particularly Ms. Divya Babbar, Associate Knowledge Manager, TSP as she frequently contacted me over telephonic and through email during the process of selection, I could feel that TSP is really good organization, efficient and have full professionalism. As such this was my first experience dealing with such an organization. I also got opportunity to interact with Ms. Pari Jhaveri, CEO, TSP over telephone. She helped me in different ways and I feel that she provides an excellent leadership to the TSP. I wish all the best to TSP, its leader and the entire team. P.K.Mathur

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.

My interaction has been mostly with Ms.Priyanka Mazumdar. I have quite liked the professional way in which Third sector partners and specifically Priyanka has inetracted with me, by giving me the right inputs to understand the role better. By meeting up with me personally she brought in the hands on experience which she has about the social sector. This gave me the required comfort to take an active interest in the opportunity being provided.

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 found Third Sector Partners, pleasant and professional. The team handled sensitive issues in a manner that was courteous but thorough. They combine technical skills with the ability to keep commitments. From a distance, my respect for TSP grew when I saw them being invited (by the client), to sit with their Board and decide on final selections. I believe they will succeed in building their business because they place a premium, on relationships.

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.

Katalyst is not just a scholarship program. It works towards empowering under privileged girls to become mature, successful individuals in their fields. It focuses on the individual as a whole. It organises several soft skills training (communication skills) and educational training (plant visits) programs. Additionally, each student has a Mentor, someone who can guide the student in various walks of life. Students get to interact & receive support and guidance from individuals outside their communities and have an exposure to a new set of experiences and perspectives. Katalyst also serves as a channel for Mentors to contribute to the society. Katalyst provides assistance in personality development and career guidance. The Katalyst team takes personal interest in each student and have a very transparent and fair process.

Katalyst has been providing scholarships to a number of needy and poor girl students of our college. Education of a girl child and her empowerment is important for creating a healthy society. Katalyst is not only merely empowering but trying to make girl students take up higher education like engineering and be equal to boys in every respect. The soft skills, additional tools required for enhancing job potential of a candidate are also arranged by bringing in experts and training the girl students. Another important feature is arranging get togethers visits to nearby plants has beeb adding great value and potential of the students. The change observed in these girl students year after year has been phenomenal. The concept of mentorship and association with senior faculty of the institute as mentors with some of these selected scholars gets them further impetus in their growth.

The Katalyst program of the Third Sector Partners has made it possible for girl students with an exceptional academic performance but from a poor economic background to become the future leaders of our corporate world.In my first year of accociation with them I sponsored and mentored 2 girls.Both of them have now completed their engineering course from a prestigious college in Mumbai and are employed with highly reputed organisations.One has joined Larson and Toubro and the other is with Shaporji Palonji Constructions.In the 1 year of mentoring we would meet every month and discuss their progress in academics as well as focus on personality development. The girls would also often call/email and share any other concerns/difficulties/achievements etc.This program has also contributed to me personally as today I can very proudly say that I was instrumental in shaping the careers of 2 very needy but intelligent girls.This year I have sponsored 3 girls and will be their mentor till they achieve their dreams.

Each and every student is provided with a mentor who is helping us in solving any kind of problems we face either academics related or others. Every weekend there are classes conducted teaching students C programming, analytical skills and lots more which is helping us to face the campus interviews with confidence.

TSP contacted me on the telephone as they were seeking a candiate for a senior position in a non-profit. Through the run in they kept in touch with me and gathered a good deal of information of my strengths and probably weaknesses. Although they were telephoning me frequently it was on the whole non-invasive and extremely cordial. I personally enjoyed talking to the young lady who was managing the selection process. Eventually I did not get selected for the job, but that was not a decision made by the TSP since they were facilitators. An organization like TSP can only take a horse to water it cannot make it drink.

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 was involved with Katalyst a part of Third Sector Partners in one of their projects on funding talented Girls from underprivileged families in Bnagalore - as a mentor. I found thie organisation highly committed with a very good pool of volunteers who really spend qulaity time with their sponsored candidates. This really encouraged me also to be involved for the development of the girls & we tried to give them all the insight of the real corporate & industry world. As a student they really do not get much exposure to their line of subject & the application of their knowlegde which as a mentor tried to my best possible capability. I really appreciate their efforts & approach & wish them all the best in all their endevaours. I would really love to work with them whenever needed.

My experience with third sector partners was an eye opener. Considering they were associated with an unorgansied social sector , their professionalism took me by surprise. All meetings took off in time. Clarity in communications helped in relating my skills to the JOB well. It took three months to confirm abount my appointment due to internal issues of the appointing NGO, but I was kept updated on the status regularly which is not commonly found in other similar organisation. Lastly, I was impressed with the reference check procedure. Though elaborate at the first instance it definitely brings out the personal and professional capabilities of the appointee.

Hi!!! this Shruthi.G doing mechanical engineering in Dr.AIT, Bengaluru. I'm associated with KATALYST from past one year. I'm pursuing the course because of this organisation. My father once suffered from Cancer(malignant tumour). For the operation we spent all our money. In this adherent situation I joined KATALYST. I’m enjoying the student life with full zeal. Here the classes are arranged according to our need. They are striving to make us tough competent. In the life skill classes I learnt how to pronounce the word, Time management, Money management. I learnt C-programming. They trained us practically in Group discussions, personal introduction, solving aptitude questions. Mentoring is the prominent part of this organization. I’m guided by the mentor in every field. They purchase text books for the students. I’m dreaming high. We have company visits. In vacations they do take us out for ice places one such was the Innovative film city and aero drum:). Last time they had arranged the competition in the IBM Company in which I won the prize:)

Katalyst has given me an opportunity to do my bit for the people at the bottom of the pyramid. By becoming a Mentor and guiding individuals not only on the educational front but on the awareness front has shown me that there are a lot of information that we assume that all should have -but its not true. There are still a huge community of people who by virtue of their education are rising up but only in the education/good grades side, but what about the vast area of smartness? Common sense? These do not come by just going to a good college. These come by being aware. And that is what I am doing along with Katalyst. We're making individuals with not only good grades but also with a smarter mind. We're making individuals who'd use their heads to understand what is right and wrong. We're making individuals who'd be smart and behave responsibly. Thanks to Katalyst -we're making it a possibilty. We're making a difference to the society.

I am Sowmya, studying in M.Sc(Physics) third semester, in Bangalore University. Katalyst identifies talents in girl students and strive towards moulding these talents firmly in them and help them excel in the journey of life. I have been given financial support by Katalyst for my education. Along with the college fee, they bear the expenses of the essential books which I buy. A personal computer has been provided to me and the maintainance is taken care by katalyst. All students of Katalyst and the mothers of students have been medically insured. This has been of great strength to me. Every student has been attached to a mentor depending on what her interest is and what she wants to be. I have love towards astronomy and astrophysics and I want to be an astronaut. Dr. K. N. Nagendra, a renouned scientist at the Indian Institute of Astrophisics, Bangalore, has been assigned as my mentor. I undertook a project under his guidance, and he is an excellent teacher. He is helping me with lots of books and guiding me to prepare for the entrance exams for doctorate programme. I am very thankful to Katalyst for this great step. It is a milestone in my career. Sessions and workshops on Career counselling, soft skills, life-skills, computer programming etc.. will be organised very frequently to make the students aware of the present scenario and shape them according to what the society demands. Katalyst comprises of a blend of students from various branches of science, commerce, arts, engineering and medicine. This is a very good platform to learn and let learn.

I have been associated with Katalyst for more than 8 months now as a trainer for their placement training course. What's unique about Katalyst is that it brings a different perspective when it comes to uplifting the girl child. Their passion to support the most needy of all with the best of everything really stands out amongst them. They always extend a helping hand for those who seemed to have lost hope and are in desperate need of aid and support. My association with Katalyst has been enriched with moments of joy and satisfaction. May this organization scale further heights and achieve more success than ever before!!!

Initially, when I came to know about the organisation, I was thrilled to see online reviews, and I said to myself that this is probably one organisation that could help me make a transition into the Third Sector, and I contacted the office, sent an email or two, and was told that someone would get back to have a chat. But, unfortunately people seem to be very busy to revert, leave aside converse. This could be improved with making it clear at the outset that the organisation is just a head-hunting firm focusing at a niche segment; basically, a 'hunting' organisation, and not a 'farming' organisation. But, if the organisation is truly in the business of identifying the potential, and get beyond the 'head-hunting' rat race, one should look at exploring various profiles in the corporate sector and speak to them for what they can provide, and if people approach directly, then the work is half done for you know then for sure that there are people who have made up their mind (or toiling with the idea) to make the shift, but are looking for expert guidance and/or counselling. My experience was sad, but that doesn't mean that, all those who are interested, should go through the same experience. Unfortunately, I had to come across such a forum to express. I hope I have been able to help by remaining honest & candid.

My name is Pooja P and I'm pursuing Engineering from RV College Of Engineering. I'm currently in 5th semester, Computer Science and Engineering.I've been associated with Third Sector Partners for about a year now. Due to financial shortcomings I was finding it very difficult to continue my education even with a good ranking of 175 in the KCET conducted for entry to Engineering course in Karnataka.When I came across Third Sector Partners, I had never heard about it and was hesitant at first to ask them for help. But I took the leap and approached them. I informed them of my troubles and requested for support. I was surprised by the way I was treated(extremely friendly and supportive). I felt at home after interacting with them. I was assured their help and from that day onwards Third Sector Partners has been my source of strength( in terms of financial help and other areas too). I'm involved in various activities conducted towards improving my employability when I graduate and also in improving my grades at college. I'm grateful and consider myself fortunate to be a part of Third Sector Partners.

I have been associated with Katalyst for nearly year now.I conduct trainings for the students both at Bangalore and Pune. There are many features that distinguish Katalyst from other programs offering similar services. Katalyst does not just stop at providing deserving girl students with monetary aid, they go ahead and try to fulfill all the needs of the students ; be it providing computers or internet connections or additional courses. Another important aspect that caught my attention is Katalyst’s endeavor to develop the overall personality of the girl child. They strive to achieve this through different personality development courses, communication skills workshops, field trips and interesting interactions with eminent people from all walks of life. Their idea of tying up each student with a mentor provides the student with the much needed personal guidance and help. Probably what makes each organization unique, is the people who are behind it.One of the reasons for Katalyst’s success seems to the extraordinary efforts of the program coordinators who go out of their way to help the students. Their stringent method of screening students ensures that only deserving students are provided the necessary financial support to study. My association with Katalyst has been a great learning experience for me. I wish them the very best and hope that the organization continues to reach out to more students in need over the next few years.

I work as a volunteer with the Katalyst Program in TSP. ( I have worked to help create data tracking systems, pitching documents and interact with students on a host of topics.) I like the program Katalyst due to the multiple benefits it brings to the student and his family by promoting education and more importantly grooming of the child. The grooming is done keeping in mind the needs of a good educational and personality background for further studies or a good corporate job.

My connection with Katalyst dates about 2 years back, it is one of the best place where you actually get to know what the world is all about.Katalyst is the one which moulds a girl in a proper manner a lets her touch the skies.They enrich you morally and ethically which is uncompensatable.They develop all the skills in you like soft skills,life skills,subject wise knowledge and whay not?They give you a platforn to perform.They are the real caretakers....It's no doubt that they are the shapers of my life and the firm to which I'll be greatful for my entire life.If I'm an Engineer today it's only because of "KATALYST"

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.

During my interaction with TSP for a professional opportunity, I found their professional services to be of very high quality. From the detailed job description provided to the follow up after the interview, it was a very personalized experience with constant followup between the parties concerned.

I joined Katalyst a CSR initiative of Third Sector Partners in August 2008. I dont know how I spent 1 year and 3 months with Katalyst. I feel it like my second home. It is helping me to reach my goal by giving coaching, financial help, a good mentor and many more. They also conduct many activities to have fun apart from academics. I was naive and didn't have self confidence before joining Katalyst. But the training clases arranged by Katalyst have made me to improve my skills. I am glad to say that I am a part of Katalyst. I always feel to be at Katalyst.
