Who we are 👋

We're a global executive search business with a dedicated and passionate team of sector specialists. We've helped scale and build executive teams for not only some of the biggest brands, but also for some of the smaller start-ups that you potentially haven't heard of just yet. Our priority is to provide the best service and operate in an authentic, open and human way. We come from some of the biggest names in the industry, but left those more rigid, KPI obsessed environments to take control of our working methods and define our own careers. We're professional and work hard, but at the end of the day, we are all family oriented and realise the importance of working in a grown up space with a healthy work life balance.

Our Story 🙂

The TalentPool Company was set up in 2007 (just before the last recession) and whilst the economic landscape was bleak, we did it anyway. Fortunately we haven’t needed to re-invent our process too much, but our size and expertise affords us the ability to adapt to the ever-changing market climate. Since then, we've established our office in Windsor, despite the marching band (most mornings) and recently opened offices near London Bridge. We also have a few team members that work more remotely around the UK. With corporate backgrounds and humble beginnings behind us, we're grateful to have created the team and business that we have today.

Why work with us...

1. Ability to earn significant (contractual) commission. 2. Flexibility & the investment to create and own your business. 3. Ability to work with the most aspirational brands & tier one clients. 4. We don't have a ping pong table, instead we've got a retro arcade machine! We have collectively created a fun, professional, grown up environment with experience and reputation coming to the fore. You control your career: Business planning, day to day location, working hours etc. You will also have the support of the wider team to help you achieve your goals. We're social and we like to grab a drink and a bite whenever possible, however these aren't always 'must attend' occasions. We do have team targets & incentives and often these are mini activities that we are all interested in trying. The last one was Clay Pigeon Shooting but previous days out have included: Swingers golf, team meals, horse racing and go-karting. Oh and if we deliver our Q1 team target then we are off to Vegas!!

Welcome Sam Evans!

"The first thing that struck me when interviewing at TalentPool was the experienced working environment they offer. With a flexible work culture and the understanding of a busy life outside of the office, it seemed like the ideal environment for me to work hard, but also focus on the things which are important to me outside of work. Joining a fast growing company and a new business division, I am able to give my opinion on how my role is shaped, as well as the medium - longer term strategy of the function which is really exciting and is not something I'd have necessarily got to experience in another organisation. I am joining TalentPool at a time when they have lots of new things happening including a new website and marketing strategy, and also partnering with the charity B1G1 which I can't wait to get involved with!" ~ Sam Evans

Business for good

Let's face it, us recruiters have a reputation. We'd like to help change that negative perception. We want to make sure that we give back not just through a singular charitable occasion, but through the work that we do everyday, of every year. Quite simply; the harder we work, the more we give back. How do we do this? We are a proud partner with B1G1 (business for good) who are a non-profit organisation who provide The TalentPool Company with the platform to contribute towards the UN's 2030 sustainability goals. When you make a commercial gain through your daily endeavours, we'll be giving a percentage back to help create different, positive impacts worldwide. This is our way of giving back and helping to change the lives of those around us. Read here for more information on our impacts: http://www.talentpoolcompany.com/b1g1/
