Tiku joins the Charity People family, having spent a large chunk of her working life in the media and creative space. She brings with her 12 years of commercial experience gained at BBC Studios and 11 years of recruitment experience gained at Major Players. She most recently recruited talent for creative agencies in Strategy and Planning and in Business Development and Marketing. Tiku is passionate about closing the equality gap in underrepresented groups. She is super excited to bring her diverse skillset to Charity People to help address this and to bolster the Exec Search and Senior Appointments Division.

Tiku has always been close to the Charity sector, albeit from the other side of the coin, through volunteering for charities like Crisis, fundraising for animal charities like Skiathos Cat Welfare Association, and regularly donating to several charities. She believes in the impact Charities have on societies.

Things Tiku loves, in no particular order: –

  1. Cats
  2. Curries (she is not bad at making them)
  3. Dogs
  4. Elephants
  5. Cats
  6. Techno
  7. Chillies
  8. Cats
  9. Her nearest and dearests
  10. You get the gist… Do ask Tiku about her two cats, Rani and Shiva J

Tiku is very much looking to meeting as many people as she can, to getting stuck in, and making a difference.
