      TQ People

      TQ people are highly experienced industry specialists. They immerse themselves in your business culture, style and brand, regardless of the size of the project. They assimilate into your organisation and are often seen as an extension of the internal business itself.

      Gareth Flynn

      FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR

      Gareth founded TQ in 2008. He has extensive experience in the industry and is highly regarded by his clients and peers. Gareth always wanted to run his own business. He was heavily influenced by his father who owned a local corner shop (where Gareth worked for many years as a young man). TQ came to life as he saw a great opportunity to develop a company with services that better supported the needs of the local market. Gareth began his career as a graduate accountant with Deloitte in London, and after a couple of years of soul-searching he decided accounting just wasn’t his thing. He then ‘stumbled’ into the heady and fast paced world of financial recruitment with Robert Walters. In 1999, Robert Walters moved him to Australia (he considers this one of his best career and life decisions), where he also worked for Hudson and Alexander Mann Solutions, managing solutions for both Australian and international businesses. He has advised and supported clients including GE, ANZ, Coles, BHP, Treasury Wine Estates, Westpac, Australia Post, Jetstar, BP, Bupa, Deloitte, NAB, Spotless, Save the Children and Rabobank.

      Alastair Schirmer

      General Manager

      Joining TQ in July 2021, Alastair was drawn to TQ’s mission and its passion for driving innovation and transformation across the spectrum of Talent Engagement and Mobility (TEaM) for both organisations and vendors. Alastair leads TQ’s Technology & Innovation practice guiding organisations on how to navigate the complexities of the HR technology landscape, and how to select and deploy technology & innovation that will transform their organisation for the “now” of work. Alastair brings 20 years’ experience within the technology sector specifically TA, HR & Marketing tech and has held senior leadership roles with innovative tech firms such as LiveHire, SEEK and iSelect, working across North America, APAC and the UK. As someone who ‘geeks out’ on TEaM technology, Alastair’s unique “t-shaped” skills and experience allow him to get to the heart of problems organisations are trying to solve for across TEaM technology strategy, solution design, journey mapping, success drivers; as well as supporting scaling ambitions of vendors looking to improve & innovate through understanding more about the voice of the customer.

      Nadine O’Regan

      GENERAL MANAGER

      Nadine joined TQ in early 2015 as the Principal Consultant for New South Wales and is now the General Manager of our Augmentation Services practise. She has worked with businesses of all sizes, but with a wealth of experience from within financial services, Nadine has led major projects for some of our largest clients. With almost 20 years of talent acquisition and generalist HR experience gained from senior leadership roles at both Citibank and Macquarie, she is an expert in talent acquisition transformation.  She brings strategic and change management experience to the table, as well as experience from having worked with the full spectrum of talent acquisition models. With a keen interest in HR technology and human centred design, she is passionate about candidate experience and shifting the needle on how talent acquisition is perceived by the wider business and leadership.

      Will Innes

      GENERAL MANAGER

      Joining TQ in 2019 as a General Manager, Will felt a deep connection to our energy, enthusiasm and honesty. Will is responsible for our business growth strategy across the spectrum of Joiners, Movers and Leavers. He is also leading the brand and experience components for any advisory and solution program that TQ undertakes. Will brings with him 20 years of career experience working with a number of international businesses. His background has enabled him to explore his fascination with how organisations achieve success through their people. His passion has taken him from recruitment marketing and employer branding to candidate experience, digitisation and organisational transformation. Working across Asia Pacific, Europe and North America, he has been fortunate to gain experience across all industry sectors, and to have worked with some of the most famous brands in the world.
