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.

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.

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.

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.

I am involved as a volunteer and have been very happy with their selection of students to whom they have to provide benefits. I am also happy with the fact that they are helping disadvantaged women students with overall development. They also regularly follow up to ensure that volunteers put in the required amount of effort and the efforts are bearing fruit.

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.
