What to Expect


Before an assignment

In the initial meeting, one of Talentmark's Consultants will listen and seek to understand the Candidate's requirements. Talentmark’s success lies in the ability to not just identify and assess capability but to understand the fabric of the organisation and who is likely to be successful in that environment. This reduces the risk associated with specialist and executive hiring.

Where Talentmark is not limited by confidentiality, the company will support requests for information about its capability and specific assignment experience.

Following a stakeholder briefing, Talentmark will prepare a structured proposal with a detailed recruitment strategy, target list, timeframes and associated fees.  

Objective and constructive feedback will be shared on the difficulty of any assignment and associated risks.

The project team will be introduced. This will normally include a lead and support Consultant, an experienced Researcher and administration support.


Once an assignment has commenced, a weekly report will be issued with a clear overview of assignment progress and feedback from the market.

Clear and open communication is key to the success of any assignment.


Talentmark will manage the transition process while a Candidate becomes an Employee or Interim Manager.

A post induction meeting is conducted separately with the new employee and the client. This allows Talentmark to offer support and facilitate on any issues that have arisen during the Candidate’s integration into the new environment. More detailed support such as First 100 Days and other impact assessment programmes are also available.

Talentmark provides guarantees for all placements with full warranties to minimise risk and maximise confidence.

The company's Managed Service programs have a detailed implementation plan to ensure that the client derives maximum benefits from all services.
