About Us

At Talent, we're redefining the world of recruitment.

Our vision and ambition are unique. We're committed to creating the most rewarding experiences for our customers, clients, colleagues and community. 

We break from the pack with unprecedented year-on-year growth, 27 industry awards in the past 10 years and world-class employee engagement levels. We're also proud to be the only recruitment business on Gallup's Global Best Workplaces list. That's what sets us apart from the rest.

Connecting excellent people with top organisations around the world is our passion. Our foundation Talent RISE supports young people with job readiness training and opportunities.

This is only part of our story; we measure our success and achievements on more than financial performance. It's about the impact, legacy and change we create.

Our services

Our values

We're proud to share the values that guide how we work with our clients, candidates and our team. As we grow and expand our team, these values remain constant.

LEAD THE WAY // We have a profound desire to break from the pack and redefine recruitment. This means taking the lead on driving positive social change, finding creative solutions to help our clients, transforming the contractor experience and investing 50% of our profits into innovation. 

STRIVE FOR BETTER // We are determined to create answers to shortcomings we encounter – whether it's the lack of support for the startup sector, poor customer service in recruitment, or unacceptable levels of youth unemployment. We never settle with the status quo.

GIVE A DAMN // We launched Talent with the belief that we could create a company that went beyond the normal boundaries in terms of its compassion and care for people. Our desire to give back to our community goes beyond programs and initiatives, we walk the talk.

1995

Talent is founded in Perth

Founded by Richard Earl in Perth in September 1995 initially operating from a home office when things in Western Australia were pretty quiet and the mining boom was yet to take off.

1999

Sydney office is launched

Launched Sydney in 1999 in the midst of a dot com and Y2k boom and quickly experienced the end of both. It took entrepreneurial qualities and great people to navigate that situation and today it is Talent’s largest office and also company HQ.

2005 - 2007

The Australian national expansion continued with the opening of our Melbourne office in 2005. Within two years we had added offices in Canberra, Brisbane and Adelaide and were ready for major growth.

Unleashed is born

In May 2013 at our “Unleashed” event in Sydney and with Sir Richard Branson in attendance, we announced our intention to transform the way we do business. We talked about taking our contractors and clients to an ‘’impossible place’’ which is our way of saying we wanted to provide a level of customer service that might surprise people beyond their best expectations. In 2014 we launched the Talent Unleashed Awards with Sir Richard Branson and Steve Wozniak as global judges. Click here to find out more.
