"We’re preparing for hyper-scale"

"We want to improve our quality of hire"

There are several contributing factors to quality of hire. One is the experience and expertise of the hiring team. Talentful’s embedded recruiters have years of combined experience and the ability to tap into a network of hundreds of talent experts to collaborate.

A second is incentivization. When paying an agency commission, you motivate recruiters to fill roles as quickly as possible, without considering quality. By removing commission, Talentful has been able to refocus on quality and offer our partners a more cost-effective solution.

"We want to improve our diversity hiring"

A recurring issue within the tech space, hiring for diversity is one of our specialisms. We have expertise in building fairer processes and eliminating bias from decisions. We’ll help you build a pipeline of diverse candidates so that your interview process is balanced.

"We need a flexible hiring option"

Whilst Talentful is valuable as a long-term strategic advisor, one of the things that make us unique is our ability to ramp up and start hiring almost immediately. 

Whereas an in-house recruitment team is time-consuming and expensive to build, Talentful can quickly scale with your needs and is a cost-effective alternative. We are just as impactful for 3-month delivery projects as we are for long-term business transformation.

"We’re spending too much on agencies"

By eliminating commission and refocusing on quality of hire, Talentful has saved our partners millions of pounds against what they would have spent on agency fees.

When you enter into a partnership with Talentful, not only are you paying for delivery of roles against target, you also receive consultative guidance and hiring process-building, increasing your ROI vs spending on agencies.

"We don’t have an internal recruitment team"

Many of our most successful partnerships have been with businesses with no existing internal recruitment team.

Unlike many other third-party recruiting options, Talentful has the ability to hire the roles you require whilst also helping to implement the recruitment processes needed for future growth. When you do onboard permanent recruiters, our experts can work alongside them on best practices to ensure they are set up for success.

"We’re growing quickly and need talent fast"

Hiring plans are not always predictable or consistent. Talentful can plug into your business quickly and seamlessly in a matter of weeks. We’ve hired hundreds of roles in a short space of time for many of our fastest-growing clients, adopting a data-driven approach to ensure our partnerships are strategic and deliver strong ROI. Find out more about how we hire at scale in our client case studies.

"We want to improve our recruitment process"

Building successful processes that last is essential to team growth in the long run. It’s wise to consider bringing in external expertise to ensure this is done correctly. While some consultancies may advise on process without delivering on your hiring goals, Talentful provides a unique blend of tactical recruitment delivery, strategic process building and long-term planning.

"We need extra support for our in-house team"

It’s a common misconception that internal teams and external support are at odds with each other. At Talentful, we find that working with internal teams often creates the best results, as it allows us to combine our external expertise and specialized knowledge with the internal and cultural understanding of your in-house team. Our unique embedded approach means that our consultants work incredibly closely with existing team members to maximize results.

"We want to keep the hiring bar high"

Often, when hiring at scale or at pace, the quality of incoming candidates can drop. With pricing structures based around quick results, many recruitment partners are incentivized to hire the first candidate they engage, rather than the best candidate. By eliminating commission and focusing on quality long-term partnerships, we’re incentivized to deliver you the very best talent in the market.

"We want to reduce our recruitment costs"

Talentful partners save, on average, almost 50% versus a traditional agency model. This is because, rather than taking commission on individual roles, we focus on building strong partnerships that deliver ROI over time. Many of our partners even find that our model is more cost-effective over time than increasing the capacity of their in-house team.
