Talent Works, the UK Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) partner to scaleups which supports businesses with scalable talent acquisition programmes, has chosen CommsCo as its retained PR agency for the UK and US markets.
Headquartered in London with offices in Framingham, MA, Talent Works was founded in 2009 by CEO Neil Purcell. The company has soared since the pandemic as businesses seek a flexible partner to source digital and other skills to meet peaks in talent requirements to support business growth. Talent Works pivoted its business to offer a subscription-based outsourcing model, allowing companies to draw down on the services and solutions supporting more flexible recruiting demands. Its recent clients include online car marketplace cinch, alternative network provider CityFibre, and online insurance company Molo.
To communicate this new messaging and drive awareness for its talent acquisition programmes, CommsCo was selected from four agencies by the Talent Works management team.
“CommsCo’s proven ability to help disruptive tech companies grow business momentum, combined with demonstrable experience in the scaleup space, really resonated with our team and they were the obvious choice to support us as we enter our next phase of growth,” said Paul Newnes, Head of Innovation at Talent Works.
Ilona Hitel, Founder at CommsCo, commented: “The pandemic has forced a recruitment rethink, and a huge uptake in flexible talent acquisition services. We are incredibly excited to be supporting Talent Works. The company reported 400% growth in March 2020 compared to March 2021, which is testament to its vision and ability to fix the acute skills shortage for scale up businesses.”
