Growing Talent

Unique Recruitment – Grow Your Own Talent!

Growing Talent is a B2B free service nurturing local unemployed people into permanent jobs giving the employer increased diversity and perspective and the individual the opportunity to take control of and change their lie.

Run in partnership with JobCentre Plus and charities, unemployed people who want to work but lack the confidence and workplace knowledge to secure a job through the traditional recruitment route, go through an information process before attending the first selection stage – we call speed dating.

This is a unique opportunity for unemployed people to meet employers with real jobs and the conviction to train and nurture them into a job which they can grow into a career. Without the shackles of a cv, formal interview, set, standard questions, each party gets to see the ‘real’ person.

The second and final stage selection is held on a 1:1 basis on the prospective employer’s site, enabling both parties to be confident the match is right. Over the term of Growing Talent, both employer and individual get to know each other really well and the future potential growth for both. At the point of hire, both parties KNOW the match is right.

Over the eight years Growing Talent has run, over 200 people of all ages and backgrounds have secured roles they have grown into careers. Both they and their employers said they would not have selected each other in a traditional recruitment route.

We’ve all had two unrelenting years of Covid and the peak and flow of uncertainty continuously taking the control out of our lives. Growing Talent gives some control back to employers and individuals. It’s completely free.
