ABOUT ME

My name is Tahlia Blow – I am the business owner of Savvy Starts and look forward to supporting you on your journey.

I have a number of years experience within the social work and child protection fields, holding numerous positions, both in front line and management. I hold a variety of skills and qualifications accrued throughout my career.

During my career, I have worked within the Department of Child Safety, a number of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community controlled organisations (specialising in early and tertiary family intervention and youth justice). During the day I work full-time as the state manager for QLD in a private organisation that aims to deliver a different approach to the child protection system. 

This role entails a significant amount of recruitment and throughout the past several years, I have noticed common themes within individuals resumes, cover letters and during interviews that didn’t accurately portray their whole skill set. These minor details are often the difference between securing a position or not – thus Savvy Start was born.

Building a business success. The hands with puzzles
