who we are & why we exist
Barr McIntosh Advisory was co-founded by Colin Barr and Tamara Barr of Barr McIntosh, a boutique Search & Selection firm. We saw a gap in the market. No one was offering job securement advice or personal career or start-up mentoring to professionals.
We established Barr McIntosh Advisory to pass on recruitment industry secrets to on-the-market professionals, jobseekers and career advancers and to give real-life mentoring to start-ups and small businesses.
Candidate Care has always been a very important part of our ethos. We realised that, due to company mergers, takeovers and reorganisations, there was a need to mentoring to the many experienced professionals finding themselves on the market for the first time.
Recruitment companies guide businesses through the hiring process, but who guides the experienced professional though the job search process?
Barr McIntosh Advisory leads professional individuals to new heights in their career and start-ups to early success through coaching and the design of a relevant Go-To-Market approach.
The landscape for on-the-market professionals is challenging; it doesn’t have to be daunting.

THE THREE-TIERED RESUME APPROACH
Today, Recruitment, HR and Talent Acquisition Executives are looking for solid and succinct content. They are looking for a short and sharp narrative that sells the candidate to them.

Using our depth of knowledge of hiring processes in this changing recruitment environment, we designed the Three-Tiered Resume.
