Stores & Purchasing Assistant Jobs In Kenya

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!
