Taariq started his career in conveyancing shortly after he matriculated and joined Snymans Incorporated as a deeds office clerk. He soon started helping in the office with deliveries of deeds office documents and rate requests for numerous municipalities. Since 2020 Taariq is focusing on the correspondent department in Cape Town. Taariq, who once aspired of being a professional soccer player, still lives by the motto of the sport, "I've never scored a goal in my life without getting a pass from someone else," and he hopes to serve as an example to others working with him. When he is not playing, talking about, or watching soccer, he likes to spend time with his family.
