Natasha Delisle-Barrow: My Story
From my early days in a research consultancy to my time as operations director for a start-up, my ability to work, and understand a diverse range of people, has been at the heart of what I do. And it’s what makes my agency so special.
Using my experience in setting up companies and growing award-winning teams, I founded Delisle-Barrow in 2010. As a working mum, establishing a recruitment consultancy in the City of London at the height of the recession was tough, but building it so it could hold its own has been hugely rewarding.
As a multilingual graduate my role, I initially focused on recruiting for VIPs, celebrities and high-net-worth individuals. The experience I had of working for such high profile global clients became even more sought-after in the corporate world especially within the fields of Finance & Banking, and Energy/Natural resources. I’ve even contributed to articles within leading industry journals and newspapers.
Today, Delisle-Barrow Recruitment specialises in providing Office & Business support staff to an array of clients. I’m involved in every aspect, but when time allows it, I also give talks on female entrepreneurship and organisational growth in the hope of sharing my knowledge to a wider audience. In my spare time, I also work with groups of people on returning to work.
Since its foundation in 2010, Delisle-Barrow has rapidly grown but we’re still a small company at heart: always focused on the needs of our candidates and clients. We don’t volume-recruit, and our client list is made up predominately of companies in the top ten of their respective sectors.
They recognise that our individual approach helps us develop enduring relationships built on honesty and integrity with some of the most intelligent, ambitious and sought-after candidates available. Candidates who will fulfil, and exceed, our clients’ expectations as well as their own.
“I have now worked with Natasha for many years. Not only has she placed me in some of my favourite roles, but has also done so whilst making sure that the fit is exactly the right one, not only from my perspective, but also the perspective of the company.
Unlike so many other agencies I never considered myself to be “just another number” shoe horned into an ill fitting shoe. Or recruited for the numbers game.
I have much to be grateful for to Natasha and her sincerity and professionalism. So if you are a candidate or a company wishing to have a first class service, look no further than Delisle-Barrow Recruitment.”
