WHO WE ARE
We started out in agency 15 years ago and it served us well for a good while. We were always aware that we were handling people's careers. Yes we made cold calls. Yes we hated every minute of it. Our best results came from building relationships with candidates. They either referred us, or asked us to recruit for them.
We moved into recruitment outsourcing and learnt a whole heap of stuff way beyond working a single vacancy. We learnt about planning, process, recruitment marketing, social recruiting, candidate assessment, stakeholder management and so on.
Then we went in-house to better understand how to apply everything we learnt, as part of a HR team.
So we've seen recruitment from all sides. Now its time to share it with you.
Now we feel incredibly lucky and privileged to be building our own thing at WHAAM! Talent.
Our aim is simple.
Help good companies work out how to great people.
We will move you away from your unplanned and spontaneous approach to hiring, towards a more planned and strategic way of thinking about recruitment.
Our model enables us to work right alongside you to build recruitment capability, good practice and reduce the risk of you needing to pay expensive recruitment agency fees.
WHO IS BEHIND THIS?
DIRECTOR AND FOUNDER
In the 15+ years I've been in the industry I've been fortunate enough to help some brilliant people recruit high performing individuals into their teams. I've recruited into Executive Teams, Middle Management and experienced high volume and project recruitment campaigns.
I'll always be the first person you talk to or meet.
During my time in the industry I've been able to build a network of contacts who I trust and often lean on for advice and support. Sometimes I invite them onto projects with me if the outcome for the client is likely to be better.
ARE WE A GOOD FIT?
Yes, if you are an SME, typically employing less than 250 people.
Yes, if you recruit or plan to recruit more than 5 people within a 12 month period.

Yes, if you have little to no specialist recruitment expertise in your business.
Yes, if you are fed up of repeatedly making the same recruiting errors.
Yes, if you want to build some internal recruitment skill and knowledge.
We can't wait to hear from you
