Case Studies

Melina Iuculano – Tanner Menzies Licensee

In April 2019, I became aware that Peter Tanner, Peter Gleeson and Ian Stacy were building a new team at Tanner Menzies and this interested me for a number of reasons.

Firstly, I knew that at Tanner Menzies I would be working with ethical, like-minded professionals who align with my own standards of candidate and client care. This is very important to me given that I am very passionate about nurturing strong business partnerships with an honest and open approach.

My needs from an employer have changed over the years, I have always wanted to own my own recruitment consultancy but didn’t want to be a sole operator as I love being part of a larger team. As a Licensee, the Tanner Menzies model gives me the best of both worlds, I have flexibility with great work/life balance and with 18 years’ experience, I don’t need to be “shown the ropes”, let alone micromanaged. Tanner Menzies understands that and have been very supportive as I have successfully built my client portfolio. There is a great team environment with the fun and banter that comes with being part of an organisation which values each team member for their uniqueness and experience.

Finally, the Tanner Menzies model is excellent financially. There is opportunity to work either as an Associate or as a Licensee, earning a significant percentage of the recruitment fee. Overall, I’ve found Tanner Menzies to be a fun, successful and professional environment with all the tools I need for success well within reach.

Neal Ford – Tanner Menzies Licensee

Joining Tanner Menzies gave me the opportunity to work under a highly recognised brand with senior decision makers, while the flexibility in location and hours gives me the work life balance that I wanted. I work remotely most of the time and also split up time to meet with clients and candidates on an as needs basis. I don’t miss the peak hour commutes and am more productive with the technology available today.

Having a licence allows me to leverage my connections with key decision makers whom are all over 35 and experienced leaders and recognise the brand. It also gives me the potential to grow a segment and get the rewards of owning my own business. Instead of putting in all the effort and getting 35-40% of billings I get the majority share of my billings – and it’s unrestricted. Working with the Directors, Peter, Ian and Peter is rewarding and their knowledge and connections across the industry is invaluable- they all have a professional disposition and a sense of humour which is important plus a vision for the future of recruitment.

Tiffany Quinlan – Tanner Menzies Licensee

After an extensive career in the corporate world I knew it was time to play the game my way. I had worked for blue chip organisations throughout my career and was cautious of how I could protect all that hard work and make it count for something. Along my journey I had met Peter Tanner and he was the first person I connected with, once I had made the decision to go it alone. It was an easy decision to join the Tanner Menzies team. As a corporate professional it was imperative that if I was to align with anyone that their ethics and basic operational standards were the same as mine.

I was seeking the freedom of running my own business, however also the ability to connect with people and work with a group of likeminded people team members I could bounce ideas off. Tanner Menzies provides exactly that and more. It is so important that to be competitive in the HR consulting field you need a trusted brand. Tanner Menzies has been recognised for integrity and customer orientation for decades. In my experience Tanner Menzies opens bigger doors far quicker than if I had hung a shingle out on my own. Working in the executive coaching, career transition and leadership space there are many players, you must grab any competitive advantage with both hands. Having the finance and marketing functions provided within the Licensee model allows you to focus on what you are good at and not get caught up in the time-consuming minefield that is administration For me being a licensee means I am accountable, but supported and most of all, I have the opportunity to work with professionals who enjoy what they do, and don’t take themselves too seriously. We work together in a productive working relationship that fosters growth with a focus on providing gold star service to clients.
