  • We are Tarpo. A tightly knit family so passionate about helping you deliver a successful event. We take joy in your success and we know you depend on us. So we are here, for your event, like your best friend always is!

    We’re not bragging about our qualifications and experience because we’ve been around so long, it’s no longer what defines us. We work within the realms of practicality and safety before anything else. We deal with events so large, there’s only one of us in the world that plans our logistics like we do, performs like we do and smiles like we do.

     

    We do events. Outdoor events to be precise. Tents mainly, but we have a few ideas up our sleeves from time to time. For a company that spent years in the tented camp industry, you’d think we’d know what portability and practicality are. You’re right. We do know!

     

    Our mobile luxury camping equipment can create the perfect bush wedding, outdoor conference, team building, retreat … and we can accommodate all 400 of you. Glamping… so you can breathe the fresh air and still feel like you’re at home!

    Personal Assistant To Chief Executive Officer

     

    Job Details

    We are looking for an honest, extremely proactive, street smart person who doesn’t shy away from decision-making. They should be coachable with a leaning towards acceptance of all world views and opinions. A quick learner with a spirit for adventure and appreciation for nature and yet still have mad skills on MS Excel and a flare for original content creation (either graphic design or blogging). The ability to think from the heart and not the head will be an advantage.

    The role involves personal admin for the CEO, ensuring that he is able to perform at the top of his game (can you make a killer smoothie for this?) so he can focus on providing his ‘super skills’ to the various brands and teams he leads. You’ll be the one who gets ideas bounced off them (you better love whiteboards and colour) and support critical decision making processes with absolute confidentiality (empathy, logical thinking). No words will be minced by either you or him.

    You’ll also soon find yourself at the heart of the operations of the business and deep into its marketing strategy; heck you’ll even be expected to realise that marketing strategy! The marketing strategy is heavily digital and involves sales automation (with major human involvement). So expect to draw flow charts, design work flows, invoke sales psychology and do this with witty banter (and chocolate).

    We expect that you have experience in an admin or executive support role working in a fast paced environment that requires/d you to multitask. We also want to see your (long running) blog or portfolio of graphic design. If you have a science background and prefer vocational management that would be awesome but it’s not necessary. And something authentic about your marketing experience.

    The role is highly stressful, challenging, fun (but not always). Our average age across a team of 60 is 30 years old with an almost 50-50 gender balance. Only the passionate survive under this CEO.

    Field Sales Representative

     

    We are looking for a Sales Specialist to handle our NGO accounts. Previous experience in relationship building and closing high value deals is essential.

    Are you a people person who finds it easy to build rapport? Are you driven by targets? Are you fascinated by technical textiles? Do you believe in the practicality and affordability of soft roof shelter? Have you experienced life in a remote area, under a tent?

    If you answered 'YES' to all the above questions then we want to hear from you!

    Minimum requirements:

    • A track record of hitting revenue targets
    • Your own prospecting methodology
    • Knowledge of the sales pipeline
    • Understanding of the buyer’s journey
    • KCSE score ‘B’ or higher
    • Plays chess
    • Owns a laptop (Tarpo runs a 'bring your own device' policy)

    What we value:

    • Honesty and Dependability
    • Someone who Understands and Listens to their clients
    • Practical & systematic approach to solution provision
    • Proud of their work and who they represent

    What we expect:

    Sell our solutions for unique problems to our existing clients and the new ones you will prospect. They want something practical and aesthetically pleasing but they aren't the expert - we are.

    Ultimately hit your revenue target.

    What we hope:

    • You have experience
    • You have a network
    • You’re a team player
    • You have a reason to wake up every morning
    • You’re not ‘entitled’ - you’ll clean the yard if you have to
