Tara Azulay: Founding Partner

Tara Azulay

Founding Partner

Tara certainly has experience with making career “180s”. Her initial goal was a career in policing. Equipped with a degree in Psychology & Criminology from Carleton University, she had to re-think her career aspirations once she discovered that her eyesight didn’t meet the requirements of the job. Little did she know that her decision to take on temporary assignments through a small employment agency – just until she figured out her next move – would lead to a 17-year career in the recruitment & placement industry with that same company – excelHR – which is now one of Canada’s leading staffing & recruitment firms. Tara launched the firm’s presence as altisHR in Toronto in 1996 and as VP/Regional Director of Site Development & Operations, helped grow the organization to three locations within the GTA and one in Vancouver. After a long and rewarding career, Tara and her young family relocated back to the capital. Continuing her work within the career ‘space,’ she subsequently launched the Ottawa chapter of the momcafé Network, a networking, and career-support group focused on connecting local professional moms. After operating the chapter for two years, she returned to the corporate world, working with CareerJoy as Director of Client Development for 1.5 years before co-founding Clariti Group. A life-long learner, Tara has completed the Sales Management Program at Queen’s School of Business and has also earned a designation as a Certified Staging Professional® just for kicks.
