Why work at Talent Works?

Talent Works has had an incredible few years, and we’re not shy about admitting it. Surrounding the uncertainty of the pandemic, we managed to come out somehow stronger than ever before. We know that we have our team to thank for that; their hard work and dedication meant that we were able to continue helping businesses surround themselves with talented people and refine and adapt our offering to be more suited to post-pandemic recruitment. We knew the industry around us was changing at rapid speed, and it was our people that embraced that and took us forward.

Now, we’re growing quickly in all areas of the business. Our tech recruitment teams in the UK and US are all expanding, but so are our digital, creative, client success and research terms. Talent Works is scaling, and it’s incredibly exciting for us all to see, from those that have been here for years to those newer team members who have joined us on our mission.

We’re now looking to grow even more, and to do that, we need talented people to join us. So we’re looking for individuals across all of our teams who aren’t afraid to have new ideas and ask questions, are passionate about what they do and are courageous enough to defy convention?

Sound like you? Then we’d love to hear from you. But we’re not stupid. We work in the recruitment market, and therefore we’re fully aware that there is a lot of competition for talent right now, we see it every day. So if you’re a recruiter, creative professional or even a digital marketer, why should you choose to join Talent Works above the competition?

Here are just five reasons of many why we think we could be a great career move for you, and why joining Talent Works isn’t just like joining any old tech recruitment company.

Our approach to RPO is unique

There are hundreds of RPO agencies out there, but we like to think we’re special. With in-house sourcing, creative, digital and research teams, we help to fill roles in more innovative and creative ways. We have teams that can inform each other, collaborate and create the most stand out talent acquisition strategies for our clients. We know that recruitment isn’t as simple as reaching out to a qualified candidate and filling the role; it’s so much more complex. Our teams work together to provide a more intelligent, strategic and streamlined recruitment process fit for the demands of hiring in 2022’s competitive talent market.

We’re not trying to be a typical PRO provider. As an organisation, we’re proud of our integrity and ability to be ourselves in every conversation and interaction. We’re also determined to be the go-to RPO provider for tech startups and scaleups, and we’re confident that our strategic and collaborative approach will get us there.

We offer a flexible approach to RPO, which we have designed to suit scaling tech businesses’ needs perfectly. One minute they may need to hire 100 developers urgently. Next, they may be looking at developing their Employee Value Proposition and EVP to support longer-term talent acquisition goals. We can support the whole thing, and you get to be at the heart of the action.  

Work with some of the most exciting tech scaleups

Work with us, and you’ll get to work with some of the most innovative and exciting scaling tech businesses across the world. From UK based tech startups like cinch to game-changing names like Moderna, we have a pretty impressive client list. We also help companies like FinancialForce to scale into new markets. This means that when you work with these companies, it will be at the most exciting times in their growth. You’ll be helping them find the talent they need to take the business to the next level, whether as a copywriter creating job ads or as a tech recruiter, working hard to find the best candidates on the market. Working with scaling businesses is extremely rewarding as every hire matters. Plus, you get to learn more about some of the most exciting companies breaking into the market first-hand.

Fast-paced, ground-breaking and highly intelligent are some of the words we’d use to describe our client base, and why wouldn’t you want the chance to say that you’ve played a part in their growth story? Our client base is growing as our business does. We have some even more impressive names in the pipeline, so if there’s a dream tech business you’d like to support, it could be a possibility very soon.

Collaborate with teams across the globe

Plus, thanks to our hybrid working model, we have a few talented remote employees now helping us deliver our tech recruitment mission. Work with us, and you get to meet people from across the globe, learn from them and share your ideas; so, you’re in for a wealth of knowledge from the get-go.

Our client base is also global, so you could work on digital marketing campaigns or employer brands that are seen across the world. Let’s just say it’s never dull. You’ll need to learn how to connect with talent in various markets, identifying the tools and messages that will cut through the noise. What works in one market may not be so popular in another, so it’s about working together to ensure our RPO really can connect with talent across the world.
