People come from all walks of life, and nobody understands that better than Bay of Plenty-based recruitment and HR specialists Talent ID. A boutique recruitment and HR consultancy, Talent ID has been supporting the growth of businesses in the Bay of Plenty and beyond for the last 15 years.
Established in 2007, Talent ID’s core business is all about people and offering tailored solutions to clients in both recruitment and human resources functions. With clients nationwide, recruiting roles from entry level to senior executive level, Kellie Hamlett, Director at Talent ID, says that having been in business for 15 years, she has a great sense of accomplishment seeing the businesses Talent ID works with, grow and prosper through the placement of quality people. The same can be said for the candidates they work with.
“We take pride in the relationships we have built” says Kellie, “and we are grateful for the support from both our business community and candidates, and we couldn’t have continued to do what we do without it”.
“We look at every role and project with a fresh approach and an open mind, and we welcome the opportunity to have a kōrero with anyone who may need our support and service.
“Our point of difference is our partnership approach, we know our clients well, and take the time to understand their business, culture and values”.
After 15 years in business, the team at Talent ID have an enviable reputation. They have placed thousands of candidates into roles around the region. More recently over the past few years Kellie has focused the business on executive level recruitment – an area she particularly enjoys working within, having placed several high-profile CEO’s, CFO’s and General Managers into roles within the Maori business, Not for Profit, Private & Public sectors.
“It gives me a huge amount of satisfaction to work with high level leaders to achieve outstanding results and then see businesses flourish under their leadership”.
There can be a perception that you need a large corporate city based consultancy to recruit for executive level roles, but time and time again we have proven that doesn’t have to be the case, and that our regional location is actually an advantage, adding value to the process.
Although the businesses primary function is to fill permanent roles, Talent ID also specialises in offering interim staff to fill critical roles or additional support in peak periods at all levels.
“For some clients it is about working smarter, not harder, and by having a temp staff member to pick up slack during the busy times, permanent staff can perform better in their roles and overall make the client’s business more efficient,” said Talent ID’s Holly Oppers who works alongside the temp staff to provide them with wrap around support.
“We are fully adaptive to the changing needs of the market, and we have the knowledge, expertise and technology to get the job done.”
While they’re a small team, Kellie makes sure clients are given 360-degree support. “Building solid working relationships with our clients is really what sets us apart, and adds the value.
“We focus on providing wrap-around support, from the correct job sizing and positions descriptions before recruitment, to making sure internal policies are right for your team,” says Kellie.
“We also offer psychometric testing to make sure we’re getting the right candidates into the right teams. It’s more than just filing roles, each step of the process has purpose, providing us with critical information needed to get to the end point, that being a successful placement.
