We started TMRG with the intention of creating a simple, effective and professional recruitment group that we would choose to use ourselves. Our focus is on delivering a quality, professional recruitment service to our Clients and Candidates – it’s what we do and it’s who we are. We don’t claim to do anything different we just aim to do it better.
Our team are experienced professionals in their own sectors of Marketing, Sales, HR/Business Services and Finance. We offer career counselling, CV advice hints and tips, as well as constructive guidance on interview techniques. Our recruitment experience is second to none and each member of our team will always go above and beyond to ensure we deliver a seamless and professional service. We demonstrate our values of open mindedness, honesty and commitment in the care and attention we provide to each and every assignment we work on.
An illustrious career in recruitment? Something that was said to me very recently and when I look back its certainly been a career of peaks, troughs and “here we go again”!! I have built and sold several recruitment businesses over the years and have been fortunate to surround myself with very talented people who make me look better! Every time I’ve said that’s it, I find myself back doing it again. It’s a people thing! We spend a lot of time getting to know our clients and candidates. It takes a very special type of person who can get under the skin of a business and candidates, to find out what makes them tick, the recruiters at TMRGroup are those very special people.
I have spent many years in recruitment and throughout my time have recruited pretty much everything and anything, including opportunities to build several recruitment businesses. Recruitment has changed dramatically over the years and has given me an incredibly interesting and varied career, working with amazing recruiters, some of whom are now also lifelong friends. We have built something really special at TMR Group – we have a family feel, we are relaxed but have a great purpose, and it’s working. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved so far with still so much more to do.
Originally from Botswana I moved to the UK for more opportunities at college. After college I decided to head straight into work and get professional experience over university, from database cleansing to now marketing executive. I have never been afraid to start a new opportunity and chase what interests me most. After working in e-commerce for 2 years it was time to move on, something in social media and marketing. I was approached by Jo and had a few conversations with her and a few interviews later I was given an opportunity to be part of the team, I could not resist! I’m only looking forward from here…
I started working in recruitment over 20 years ago and during the last 10 years have worked predominantly in IT positions advising on, and implementing hardware, software and digital presence strategies for a number of recruitment companies. I am happiest with my head stuck in a laptop or server, or doing some late night coding on my latest web project.
The Marketing Recruitment Group was the initial business set up with Jo Faria, Nofa Zahreddine and Zinia Bain on 3rd September 2016. Zinia was with us for our initial start-up then left us to have our first “TMRG baby” in December 2016. However, we are delighted to say she has recently returned to the fold.
Following our success in the Marketing arena, we developed a very strong client and candidate base which allowed us the opportunity to successfully launch three new divisions, Sales (2018), HR/Business Services (2019) and Finance and Accounting (2020).
Nofa specialises in all aspects of marketing recruitment across a wide variety of roles including; Digital, Ecommerce, PR, Communications, CRM Nofa has extensive experience in digital and Marketing Recruitment she understands what you do and knows the right questions to ask, and for clients is quickly able to present the right candidates to help you to achieve your marketing objectives.
Marketing - Managing Consultant
I have a creative background, which is how my career began. I soon found that I was enjoying the sales side of my role more and more. I knew that I wanted to marry the creative with the sales aspect and decided to go into marketing recruitment. Throughout the past 3 years I have dedicated my career to getting to know the ins and outs of marketing, digital and communications. During this period I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know marketers, understanding their strengths and placing them in roles that allow them to progress and achieve.
Our incredibly talented Sales Division is headed up by Kim Barnes. Kim has been with us since the launch of this division which is growing from strength to strength. Kim has recently taken on the mantle of Manager and is now growing her team by mentoring and coaching consultants to work alongside her. We can offer this speciality due to the diverse nature of the teams experiences. Recruitment can be stressful for all parties; however, we look to alleviate those pressures in a consultative manner by offering advice, guidance and support every step of the way.

After studying within Equine Science, I decided to put my education to use and become a Recruitment Consultant…Haha I’m not kidding! I originally fell into the world of recruitment after speaking with a recruitment company about a role I was applying for. After a lengthy conversation, we established, I love speaking to new people, building relationships and creating opportunity. Forget the horses, recruitment was actually the perfect career path for me…6 years later, I haven’t looked back! Having worked within the Automotive, Sales & Events industry; Sales is most definitely my “cup of tea” when it comes to industries so here I am!

Finance & Accounting
Zinia, a founder of the TMRG business has returned from maternity leave to launch this specialist division. She has over a decade of experience recruiting Finance and Accounting staff for a diverse client base in the Manufacturing, Engineering, Service, and Retail sectors as well as Public Practice. Again, we have moved into this heavily congested market due to demand from our existing clients who felt they were not receiving the ‘TMRG service’ from the more established brands.

Finance & Accounting
I love to talk and am a people person so a career in recruitment was the perfect match for me. I really enjoy finding out about the individual behind the CV and what a business is really looking for when they say “the right person”, I strive to make the very best match possible for all involved. Over the last 16 years in recruitment I have worked across different sectors however I always come back to Finance and Accounting. I appreciate the candidate’s investment to achieve the desired qualifications and see the value this adds to any business. I love food and will try just about anything once, I have recently started to show a keen interest in gardening and am quickly becoming obsessed but nowhere near as obsessed as I am with keeping a clean house – my car not so much (note to self must try harder).
