Tara Azulay

Founding Partner
With a degree in Psychology & Criminology from Carleton University, Tara was initially interested in a career in policing. However, taking on temporary assignments through a small employment agency as she finished university ended up leading to a 17-year career in the recruitment & placement industry with what is now one of Canada’s leading staffing & recruitment firms. Tara launched the firm’s presence as altisHR (now Altis Recruitment) 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, she relocated back to the capital and continued her work within the career space, launching 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 with Kevin in February 2014. A life-long learner, Tara became a Licensed Menopause Champion & Educator with Menopause Experts Group, completed the Certified Resilience Coach program with Leadership Wellness Group, the Life Coach program with JRNI (now Lumia), and the Sales Management Program at Queen’s University Smith School of Business, and has also earned a designation as a Certified Staging Professional® just for kicks.
