Meet our new Partner from Melbourne, Tom Jeffs
As a Partner in our Melbourne office, Tom brings over 18 years of Talent Acquisition and Talent Consulting experience from both the UK and Australian markets to the table. As an authentic, pragmatic and outcome focused consultant, his experience and focus is on delivering highly effective talent acquisition and succession planning outcomes across multiple verticals and disciplines for market leading corporates.
Having started life teaching English in Milan, his career in Talent began in London in 1998 recruiting Finance contractors for major Investment Banks before moving to Australia and focusing on Sales and Marketing professionals within the FS, Utilities and Telco verticals and later leading a team focused on high volume IT contracting. His Executive Search career began in 2007, establishing a local search division for a global recruitment company before moving to a highly-regarded boutique provider and building their CIO and Transformation Practice.
In 2012 Tom joined Telstra, where he helped develop an effective internal search and sourcing function for Telstra’s top 270 executive roles, as well as managing succession planning outcomes for those roles leveraging external insights and market intelligence, providing significant ROI and reducing reliance on external search providers. Prior to joining GTG, Tom spent three years as Client Solutions Director with a leading talent and leadership risk management consulting firm in Melbourne.
Whilst Tom is passionate about partnering with major corporates to solve their critical Talent Acquisition, Management and Development challenges, he tends to focus on his other passions out of work which include food and wine (eating and drinking a lot basically), cooking (badly), travelling, reading rock-music biographies and following Aston Villa FC, who have provided him with little to no satisfaction for the last 15 years.
