The yearly round up – the 2018 edition

Last year was a big one for Talent Works. We won new clients, moved into new offices and taken on lots of new people. Let’s grab a cup of tea and take a look at what we got up to in 2018.

After all, it’s been a pretty good year.

We got creative with Asahi

Asahi is an employer that values innovative and inspirational thinking. That’s why we created ‘The Art of Asahi’ – a colourful and creative employer brand that provides the perfect canvas to celebrate Asahi’s culture and opportunities.

Our ‘Art of Asahi’ concept extends to all sorts of messaging, including employee events.

We gave Red Hat a helping hand

We provided RPO support for 40 open roles for this leading tech company, helping them find Architects and Consultants for positions across Europe. Our efforts went down so well, we’ve been enlisted to support other areas of the business, including the recruitment for their graduate programme. Watch this space.

We loved every moment with Mitchells & Butlers

We created a compelling employer brand that unites this massive, multifaceted company under one umbrella, making it easier to speak to talent in a more engaging, visible way. Our Brand and Insight team interviewed over 400 employees before collating the research into a clear framework with a single message: ‘Love Every Moment’. Now the ‘Love Every Moment’ brand has spread throughout the business, appearing in employer videos, internal posters and social media campaigns.

Our new employer brand puts people front and centre.

We helped Elsevier spread knowledge

As a company, Elsevier has some big goals – to share knowledge for the benefit of humankind, to inspire new ideas and spark discoveries. So they needed something pretty special to attract and engage the right talent. We created a new employer brand that brings their business to life, and shows what it’s like to work for this innovative organisation.

Striking imagery and bold copy bring this multi-layered brand to life.

We continued to support Sage

We continued to offer RPO support for Sage, helping them find the right people for their Sales and Service roles. Over 2018, we helped them make 302 offers and 273 hires.

We went global with Bloomberg

Our Brand and Insight team surveyed 4,065 potential candidates across five continents, in order to understand how they perceived Bloomberg and their competitors in order to help shape the company’s employment offering.

We propelled Amadeus to new heights

Every employer knows that top tech talent can be hard to find. As a global leader in travel technology, Amadeus needed to be able to reach the best and brightest software developers to join a new division. To help them out, we not only provided them with dedicated RPO support, we also created a microsite that brings to life what this future-facing company does in order to engage and attract a younger tech audience.

This landing page operates as a hub for prospective tech talent.

We got social with Akamai

We’ve helped this global tech giant connect with people all over the world via the medium of social media. We’ve used compelling content to grow their following on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn, sharing company news, connecting with employees and showcasing Akamai’s unique culture.

Content that showcases Akamai’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

We found tech talent for Next

Clothing brand Next needed some help identifying and attracting tech talent. Our sourcing team rose to the challenge by providing dedicated RPO support, finding hundreds of potential candidates which resulted in eight new hires across roles that are notoriously difficult to fill.

We got under the skin of Nationwide

Our Brand and Insight team provided a whole host of valuable information to inform Nationwide’s new employer proposition. We conducted hours of in-depth research and interviewed hundreds of employees across the country to get to the heart of what makes Nationwide a great place to work. And we’ve got more projects on the go.

We’re showing the human face of Taboola

We’re excited to be working with global tech company Taboola on developing a new employer brand to help them attract and engage young tech talent across the world. We’re still in the early stages, so keep your eyes peeled.

Phew. What a year. Of course, this is just a snapshot of what we got up to, and we’re anticipating 2019 will be even busier.

But you know what? We can’t wait.
