Connecting great leaders with businesses for good.

About Us

Welcome to TalentPool Executive, the retained division of The TalentPool Company. With over 3 decades of experience in partnership with blue-chip and challenger brands, our extensive network enables us to match senior professionals with a business mission, vision and the values to drive change.

Today’s world is smaller and more connected than ever before. The doors to global talent are wide open. Prospects are faced with a greater choice of employers, industries and cultures. The best talent no longer needs to compromise their values. So, while business principles and ethics have always mattered, now they are essential.

Our research shows that 75% of professionals are more likely to stay with companies longer when they truly affiliate with what the company stands for and represents. At TalentPool Executive, we specialise in finding executives that will thrive in your culture and deliver results in the right way. As industry experts, our team, ethos and approach render talent engagement and retention.

Our purpose is to partner with companies who make great products, but who also uphold great principles. These include B-Corp certified organisations as well as those well on their journey to achieving this status. In addition we work with businesses who are committed to making a positive impact in the world. Organisations who are living and breathing of what we refer to as our ‘WISER Principles’.

Our ways of working:

Stay True

Every conversation we have is held with the utmost discretion. 80% of our assignments are highly confidential (under strict NDAs). We’re always fully transparent from the outset about potential challenges, only set realistic expectations and promises we can deliver against. We are agile in our approach, with every project tailored to the needs of each client.

Live Passionate

We work in the consumer sector because we love the industry. It’s what we know best, and we’re committed to supporting the growth of organisations, whether they’re big blue chips or emerging, high growth SMEs. This is so much more than a profession to us, which can be evidenced from the advisory work we do in the industry and in our roles as Angel Investors.

Be Professional

We invest maximum effort and commitment into every brief, treating each client and candidate with respect. Our process, shortlist-reports and reference checks are comprehensive yet to the point, and most importantly, relevant. We incorporate all aspects of diversity into every assignment, removing unconscious bias from our process.

Give Back

No one gets anywhere in the world by themselves. The idea that ‘you get what you give’ is integrated into our DNA. This can be seen in everything from our extensive volunteer work to the impacts and donations within three of the UN’s Sustainability Development Goals, which are closest to our hearts . Our Impacts >
