Everything TalentSpace does is centred around helping ambitious young people advance their careers. Whether it’s profiling up-and-coming startups, giving new insights into lesser-known digital projects big corporates are working on, or creating more personalized career events, it’s a talent-first approach that guides them. And it’s fulfilling work – when talents land their dream job or companies find their perfect hires, it makes everything worthwhile.
This is a place that values ambitious self-starters who roll up their sleeves and get right into the thick of things. Forget the days of tedious approval processes and micromanagement, TalentSpace employees have a highly autonomous working environment. The team is made up of people who take ownership and responsibility for their work and, most importantly, keep their word and deliver on their tasks. Working in a highly cross-functional team and directly with the founders makes this a great platform where people with an entrepreneurial spirit are both encouraged and able to flourish.
The one thing that excites the team every morning is the fact that they’re building something brand new. As they’re setting the standard in the recruiting industry, everything they do is being done for the first time. No one on the team has been previously involved in the recruiting industry, and this outsider mentality brings a different perspective and a fresh way of looking at things. There are always new tests to run, new companies to speak with, new cities to expand to and new talents to engage with. Team members grow in tandem with the company and wear many different hats, thus allowing them to harness skills in many different areas. One thing’s for certain, there’s never a dull moment in the TalentSpace office.
Among all the hard work the team puts in daily, they always remember to enjoy the ride and not take themselves too seriously. Working in a small team of international, smart and driven individuals makes this super easy. The employees take pride in their work and play as a team; celebrating the achievements of team members as their own. From monthly team dinners, fun team activities (karaoke and go-karting anyone?) to just kicking back and enjoying a beer as a weekly wrap up on Fridays, this is a team that enjoys each other’s company both in and outside of work.
