Why Work With Us

You want to attract the very best candidates:

We use a variety of attraction techniques to ensure that we capture the best candidates. Whether they are immediately available or working for one of your direct competitors, our diverse range of methods ensures that all avenues are explored.

You want to pay a reasonable fee for a superior service:

As an independent consultancy, we can be competitive on our fees. Most executive recruitment agencies charge a premium for retained services, whereas we tend to reward retained work by making our fees more attractive.”¯

You want to truly understand and assess the best candidates:

Our coaching partnership model enables The Talent Place to build in a variety of profiling and assessment tools into the process. Such assessments (such as Hogan, DISC and MBTI) can help highlight a candidates’ morals, values, strengths, weaknesses and development areas, enabling a more thorough and enlightening interview process.

You want to save time and deal with one point of contact:

When committing to working with us on an exclusive basis, we will ensure that your vacancy is filled with a candidate that you are excited about. We are experts in managing the most complex of recruitment processes, operating in an informative and professional manner throughout. As well as having only one-point contact, you can be assured that all candidates are assessed against a thorough and consistent process.

You have a sensitive vacancy and want it to remain confidential:

We have a proven background in handling such sensitive requirements. One of the many benefits of working with an independent consultancy is that only one person needs to know about a particularly confidential requirement. The process can also be sensitively handled with the use of NDA’s when necessary.”¯”¯

HR Recruitment Challenges

Most business leaders have different expectations of what HR can offer, which is often understandably based on their own experiences.”¯ Such differing perspectives, coupled with a genuine disparity of HR talent, results in an alarmingly high proportion of unsuccessful senior HR appointments.

At The Talent Place, we have helped our clients buck that trend.”¯ If we work together, we consider ourselves to be an extension of your business. “¯”¯With the benefit of 15 years’ experience and over 200 senior HR placements, we’ll challenge you to ensure you’re pitching the opportunity at the right level and the right type of person.”¯

When recruiting for a HR leader, there are so many factors to consider, and these are just a few; the complexity of your business, the consistent people related challenges facing your organisation, the culture you want to maintain or create, how progressive HR can benefit your company, the need for commercial agility and how operational or strategic they need to be. “¯

This may sound straight forward, but getting the balance between what your company needs and that perfect HR candidate is harder than it looks.”¯ Our research shows that the single biggest reason HR candidates voluntarily leave their role is because of this misalignment.

If your company is facing this challenge, get in touch, we can definitely help!
