What makes us different

What is embedded recruitment?

Our embedded talent experts are placed onsite with a client and are able to work closely with hiring managers to help them achieve their goals. This means you’re able to build a diverse portfolio of experience, understanding a range of different business challenges and solutions, whilst still being part of our fast paced and exciting company.

Putting the Talent in Talentful

“After graduating from university over two years ago, I joined the finance team at Talentful and was given the incredible opportunity to carry out my Chartered Accountant qualification (ACA). At Talentful, I work with a diverse team of talented individuals from various backgrounds who help me excel both personally and professionally. The support I have received has been invaluable and I look forward to growing further with the company.”

“Talentful for me has been a fantastic opportunity to learn and develop. After working with recruitment agencies, I wanted to gain more exposure to the inner workings of companies. Having been with Talentful now for over four years, I’ve had the chance to work on-site with a range of companies all offering new and exciting challenges and learning experiences. A job at Talentful is so much more than being a recruitment consultant, you have the chance to work on such a variety of project-based work. It’s hard to find a more supportive employer.”

“Since joining in 2016, I have partnered with nine clients across various industries. These projects have ranged from early-stage tech startups where I built founding teams, to Google’s research labs where I hired scientists and entrepreneurs to develop breakthrough technologies. In 2020 I relocated to San Francisco, where I’m really enjoying supporting the growth of our US team.”

Talentful has taught me that successful hiring requires a holistic understanding of a business; it’s stage of growth, it’s goals, it’s culture. As a hiring partner to my clients, I have been empowered to impact all these factors and, doing so, I discovered a love of a really good process! Recently, Talentful has allowed me to develop this passion, offering me a role in Operations; I’m super excited to take on this new challenge!

“I joined Talentful five years ago when we were a small group of people with a shared vision to change the perception of recruitment. Now with a team of 100+ talent partners working in London, Berlin and the US, it has been incredible to see how Talentful has grown. I can’t wait to see where we’ll be in another five years.”

“After five years working for myself as a freelancer, I didn’t know what to expect when I got the opportunity to join the marketing team at Talentful. I have now been with the company for over four years and I have had the most incredible experience so far! I have had the chance to work with some amazing people and work on various creative projects internally and externally. What surprised me the most about Talentful was how much the company supports their people both professionally and personally.”

Over the last two years, I have worked with brands across various sectors, large and small, and I mostly appreciate the diverse projects I am exposed to both day-to-day and long-term. After one year with Talentful, I had the incredible opportunity to relocate from London to Berlin to help establish Talentful’s presence and recreate what made our team in London so successful.
