Talent Works started life in 2009 with a vision to transform and disrupt the recruitment industry.

What started in a small barn with one founder and three willing and ambitious recruiters, soon evolved into an industry disruptor who sought to challenge a stagnating industry.

From having started with less than £5,000 of funds, it has grown organically to become a multi-million turnover business.

Be it a tech company scaling up gradually or an established business expanding internationally, Talent Works has the know-how to attract and hire the right people.

Talent Works also makes a point of supporting and nurturing the development of its own people – a value exemplified by its ‘people first' strategy.

Initiated by the leadership team at the start of the pandemic, the strategy combined open communication with a consultative approach to secure the jobs of as many employees as possible.

During the pandemic, the leadership team was available for anyone at any time.

An end-of-week group Zoom call provided staff with a business update and separate weekly calls ensured those on furlough were kept up to date. The CEO was on each and every call.

Staff were encouraged to pursue their personal progression goals, despite the pandemic, and Talent Works ensured all employees had the equipment they needed to work safely and effectively from home.

Colleagues who preferred to be in the office were also supported, through the provision of a Covid-secure environment

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

95% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

Hard work does not go unrecognised. On Friday's business update call, all employees are given the opportunity to give their colleagues a ‘shout out'. Employees are also encouraged to use the internal business newsletter to highlight their workmates' efforts and achievements.

My Team

95% of staff agreed

People in my team go out of their way to help me

Collaboration is key to the company's culture and a number of initiatives were set up to nourish employees' sense of belonging while remote working. These included regular quizzes and team-building activities, drop-in ‘coffee chats' and a Monday Masterclass – a virtual workshop focussing on different areas of the business.

Giving Something Back

75% of staff agreed

My organisation encourages charitable activities

Talent Works encourages its employees to take paid volunteer days and, during the pandemic, provided information on charitable initiatives such as a telephone befriending service for the elderly. Both the business and employees supported staff members who were shielding by delivering food and medical supplies.

Quote from the top...
"We’re very proud to receive a one star rating in this year Best Companies employee engagement survey. After such a challenging year this was always going to be a time to test how our leaders and teams would respond. After receiving a ‘ones to watch’ last year, we’re delighted that we’ve been able to build on our success and continue to strive to be a place where people feel valued, engaged and are proud to work. It’s a fantastic achievement that we are certain we can continue to learn from and build on. My thanks go out to all of our amazing people that continue to make talent works a great place to work."

Neil Purcell, CEO - Talent Works International
