The TalentPool Company prefer to work with only a handful of companies in true collaboration. Unlike our competitors, this leaves a large pool of companies with which we can source from, and enables us to develop a thorough understanding of our clients’ culture and the profile of what ‘great’ actually represents in their business.
“Talent Pool plucked me out of Tesco in 2005 to jump over the negotiation table and join innocent drinks in a commercial role. I’ve subsequently worked with Talent Pool to recruit extremely high calibre, entrepreneurial talent to build my teams in four separate businesses and I’m delighted we were recently introduced to our new Head of Off and also On Trade at Lucky Saint via Talent Pool. Why TP? Most notably because they understand the pressures and opportunities fast growth businesses are under, and resultantly the skill sets and attitudes needed to win, they’re quick to respond, professional and fun. I’ve thoroughly enjoyed their informative and amusing monthly briefing PDFs in lockdown and the opportunity to bounce the ball on all sorts with fellow leaders in their fantastic network.”
“We always ask Talent Pool to find us superstar candidates and they have not disappointed us to date. Having worked with them personally for a number of years I know they have an extensive network of talent in the FMCG sector and really take the time to understand your needs before approaching the market. They take on feedback and move quickly to secure top tier candidates. Thanks a million guys!”
“Genius is an ambitious challenger brand, with lofty objectives and goals. We need a certain type of person to meet our values, capability & culture and I trusted TalentPool to search out and recruit two critical senior roles in our Marketing and Sales functions. Adam & the team approached our requirements with rigor, pace and professionalism & delivered two fabulous short lists and ultimately two talented hires which we are delighted with. They are a real asset to our people strategy.”
“The team have consistently added value to the recruitment process. They demonstrate an excellent understanding of the needs of the organisation, regularly delivering high calibre candidates with a robust, yet light touch and low hassle, style.”
“The TalentPool team have proven to be an invaluable support for my recruitment needs across both Sales and Supply Chain Operations. Their professional and personable approach has been exactly what I (and I believe the candidates) have needed when businesses are moving so fast and have ever changing needs. Their ability to be flexible, adapt to and manage situations as they evolve has been incredibly helpful and shows a great understanding that they can support their clients to be successful. All of this helped by them simply being a positive and engaging bunch of people to deal with!”
“Professional, motivating and supportive. It has been a pleasure working with TalentPool. They were supportive and understood what I was looking for. The team motivated me through interview phase and ensured I was matched to the right role. To top it all up, they get Supply Chain and are always willing to look after the well-being of their candidates. Very positive experience gained working with them and will definitely be using their services again.”
Talent Pool have helped place me twice in my career! First into Yes to, and then into graze. The support and guidance was first rate and I felt totally comfortable throughout.
As we embark on our start-up journey with Skin Sapiens, I’ll be looking at TalentPool to help us place the right talent into our growing team.
“Hiring great talent is a constant challenge to any business which means partnering with the right consultancy is more crucial than ever. We have worked with TalentPool for a number of years and the team’s ability to read the market and deliver the calibre of profile that our business requires at speed has been second to none. Their success is centred around building an in-depth knowledge of our brand, culture and ways of working – this has resulted in a large number of great people joining our business. We at RB would highly recommend the TalentPool team!”
“Finding the best people in any organisation irrespective of size is always a top priority but identifying and onboarding them isn’t easy. With our unique culture and a demanding set of hiring requirements, we have to work with partners who can understand our business & culture and source the best of the best. In TalentPool we have found a consistent talent provider who I would always recommend working with, both from a business perspective but also as an individual.”
TalentPool really saved the day after I had a bad experience with another recruiter. I had to quickly replace a key role in my team but wanted to make sure the new team member was a good fit culturally and had the ability to grow with the company. Ameet came to see me to get a feel for our culture and understand the requirements of the role. I was impressed with the list of candidates he put forward and he was able to quickly set up interviews for me. In the end I had two great candidates to choose from and a year down the track I am still very happy with our (not so) new team member. I look forward to working with Ameet again in the future.
“TalentPool is our go to recruitment partner for Califia Farms and assisting us to build out the Califia Farms team across Sales, Marketing & Supply Chain taking the team from 3 to 9 people. TalentPool take the time to listen and present top candidates who have enabled us to take Califia Farms to the next level.
As such a small team with no local HR resource their team provide helpful advice and take the time to understand your needs, values, culture and working environment – always giving us a top talent shortlist vs a list of average CVs. Candidates from TalentPool are always very well prepared with strong relationships with their candidates.”
“The team at TalentPool have been a strong and trusted partner of Lily’s Kitchen for a number of years now, introducing us to many of the fantastic members of our current team.
We have a close working partnership. They have a great understanding of our brand, employer branding, values and environment so are able to match us with strong candidates aligned with the brief and what is needed to work in a high growth SME company. They also pride themselves on knowing their candidates, their style, attributes and ambitions, and the Talentpool focus is very much on presenting quality, suited profiles as opposed to bombarding us with average CV’s.
A big recommendation for TalentPool from the Lily’s Kitchen team.”
“I have worked with TalentPool for a number of years & across two separate businesses – I would highly recommend the service that the team provide. Their proactive, creative approach is refreshing and they have spent a huge amount of time understanding our business, which has in turn resulted in them finding and placing a number of exceptional candidates. We continue to work closely with them and they are a trusted & respected partner to our business.”
“I’ve been in the interesting position of working with TalentPool in both a candidate and an employer position and from these experiences I think they are in the rare position of nailing both. As a candidate, they provide constructive feedback, timely responses and give a clear understanding of the role and the expectations of the employer. As an employer, they listen and make sure they fully understand the brief, then returning with a short list of high-quality candidates. They brief the candidates well, and manage the process thoroughly to ensure the experience on both sides is strong. They are definitely one of my go-to agencies.”
“TalentPool found me my dream job! Ameet was amazing from the offset. He gave me an in-depth consultation where he really listened to what I was looking for. He immediately came up with a role which was the perfect match for my criteria. Throughout the application process Ameet checked in and offered advice and feedback to help me nail the interviews. I cannot thank you enough!”
