Bella Eccles

Founder, Consultant, Coach

Bella is passionate about helping people understand their natural talents and explore careers where they are more likely to be satisfied and successful.

She is a Qualified MBTI (Myers Briggs) Practitioner. Bella spent the early part of her career hiring Associate to Board level candidates predominantly into investment banking and private equity, and has advised an online recruitment business for interns and graduates. More motivated by a true desire to place the right people in the right jobs, than to simply hit targets, Bella established Tinker Tailor in 2008 to offer a more bespoke service to young people, schools and experienced professionals.

By building extensive networks with school leaver and graduate employers, she was able to record – and can now share – a huge range of workplace insights.

Susie Kendall

Programme Development, Coach

A passionate careers educator, facilitator and programme designer, Susie has been supporting young people both individually and in school settings for the last 10 years.

Understanding, through coaching, why her career in corporate law didn’t feel like the right ‘fit’ was what prompted Susie to work with young people and help them to make better decisions about their future.

Susie is a Level 6 Qualified Careers Adviser. She gained facilitation skills working in corporate settings and with students at London Business School. Susie has also been designing Careers Leader training programmes for both secondary and primary schools for Teach First for the last six years. This has provided her with an excellent understanding of how careers education can be embedded in the school curriculum.
