What do the employers say who currently use Growing Talent……


“The Growing Talent Programme has offered Baxter Storey the opportunity to recruit some wonderfully talented people into our business. With all three parties working closely together, the candidate feels supported on their journey through the programme and back in to work. The opportunities of the programme along with having an open mind about where the journey will take them, the recruits have the chance to take control of their career with BaxterStorey.” Ed Walker, Operations Manager, Baxter Storey



‘Growing Talent has been a fantastic and valuable experience for us at the hotel; we are so pleased to be part of this programme and supporting such an enterprising initiative to get people who truly wish to work in to the work place and not necessarily in business that they are skilled for.  We have learnt to recruit in a different way and changed our mind set and it is interesting to meet people without seeing a CV first! ‘ Emma Brierley, HR Director, ME London Hotel


‘Growing Talent has opened our eyes to a different way of finding driven individuals who genuinely want an opportunity to show employers what they can do – and we have not been disappointed!  We look forward to working with Growing Talent again next year.’ Frances Lees, HR Manager
 Meliá White House



‘I was sold on trying Growing Talent because it is an innovative way to attract new talent.  There are no cvs or job descriptions involved. It’s based purely on personality.  The model ensures the match is right for us as the employer and the new talent joining our business.  It’s been amazing and I look forward to next year.’ Ebb Kanga, Holiday Inn
