Meet the team

Team Profile

Kirsteen Allen and Andrea Starbuck set up Ten2Two in West Kent in September 2011 and since that time have helped a number of local organisations find the right flexible resource to help them grow their business. Kirsteen comes from a finance background having qualified as an accountant in the City with one of the “big five” accountancy firms. She practiced for 10 years, latterly working within Internal Audit gaining a good understanding of internal process in a variety of organisations. Andrea has a long established background within the residential property sales and marketing arena. She has been involved in most areas from development to management of investment and estate portfolios as well as direct sales and lettings. Having both taken career breaks to raise families, Kirsteen and Andrea were keen to fill a gap in the market to help local companies find talented professionals with great skills wanting to work on a flexible basis. In addition to running Ten2two in Kent, Andrea and Kirsteen are Directors of the Board of the Sevenoaks Chamber of Commerce and are active members in the local community.  Lorraine Heath has recently joined the team and ably supports Kirsteen and Andrea.

Welcome to Ten2Two Kent and Bromley

We’re here to help businesses in Kent recruit part-time and flexible professionals. We also want to help and support people seeking flexibility in their working lives. There are all sorts of reasons why people wish to work flexibly with part-time or reduced hours jobs – from working mums returning to work after maternity leave through to dog walkers who need to work closer to home.

Andrea and Kirsteen live and work in Sevenoaks. They like nothing more than helping local people to find their next part-time and flexible role. And they love helping businesses in Kent to find their next flexible working hire – a highly skilled professional who can plug their recruitment gap with their exceptional talent and motivated approach.

We’d love to come and meet you to discuss in more detail how we might be able to help, either now or on the future. We’ll manage your recruitment and placement of a talented part-time and flexible professional and help you design the right flexible role for your organisation.

We have built a unique community of working professionals seeking more flexibility in their career and looking for rewarding, professional roles in their local area. We offer recruitment for Sevenoaks and other areas within Kent. We support out ‘members’ through a series of free professional development events, helping them return to the workplace or move into a flexible role.

You’ll find us working with the business communities in Kent. We focus on recruitment for Sevenoaks, Tonbridge, Tunbridge Wells, Orpington, Bromley and surrounding areas.

What they say..

Tapping into the local talent pool

“As a growing business in the IT sector, we were looking to employ two new members of staff in the key areas of Finance and Sales and Marketing. We wanted to tap into the local talent pool of professionals that had, for one reason or another, taken a career break and were looking to get back into employment. We approached Ten2Two to help us in this search. They were meticulous in assessing our requirements and searching for the ideal candidates for us to interview. The quality of candidates was exceptional and every one was worth the time we spent interviewing them. In both instances we were left with a difficult but enviable choice. The two new members of staff have made an immediate impact on the business and are a perfect fit with our company culture and ambition. I can’t recommend Ten2Two enough for the service they provided.”
