What TalentSum Offers
Profiles We're Seeking
TalentSum is always looking for highly engaged people who are passionate about talent acquisition. Only apply to join to be considered for client engagement opportunities through TalentSum. In particular, we are seeking the following profiles:
Former Talent Leaders
We seek out industry executives interested in advisory consulting work in the next phase of their career. We supplement in-house teams with high-caliber, low-ego people who are focused on outcomes and people, know how to use technology, can delegate and manage others (and are able to get out of the way), and possess the ability to build business value from within. If this is you, we encourage you to apply to join.
We serve a broad range of industries and clients, so there's no one profile or experience set that makes for a good industry specialist at TalentSum. That said, the specialists we look for are deadline-driven and organized, love to work in their zone of genius, and possess enough knowledge and experience to deliver client impact. It’s a bonus - but not necessary - if you possess a healthy mix of agency and in-house experience. If this is you, we encourage you to apply to join.
We seek out senior consulting professionals who were acknowledged leaders in their chosen fields. Most want flexible hours, location independence, and fulfilling work that they’d like to continue — just not at the frenetic pace of top corporate jobs. If your core consulting skills are engrained, but you’re tired of the rat race, or you’ve been asked to prioritize firm performance over client results one too many times, then consider us.
We seek out experienced technologists to guide enterprise efforts and advise our largest clients on how they can transform the way they use technology to deliver business value across talent acquisition and recruiting. Best are those who have lots of experience leading technology strategies with enterprise companies, demonstrated experience in developing strategic technical initiatives, and a proven track record of driving complex customer engagements. If this is you we'd love to hear from you.
The people we seek out have run large, transformational efforts and lived through (and led) organization-wide delivery transformations. We need true partners who can help us to deliver efficient and empowering talent services, facilitate skill-building programs, and lead or support the overhaul of candidate experiences, corporate recruiter programs, enterprise technology integrations, and the optimization of daily talent acquisition operations. If this is you, we encourage you to apply to join.
We seek out “people-firsts” who are able to fuse their experience with people, and strategic thinking with pragmatic execution. We partner with talent leaders, vice presidents, and directors who work in talent acquisition, talent management, talent development, talent strategy, recruitment and executive search, and talent marketing and/or employer branding. If this is you, we encourage you to apply to join.
