Talent Partner Job Description

So…you want to say goodbye to the way you’ve worked previously, the same reason we have set up Hidden.

We are changing the way that recruitment works in the creative, digital and tech industries and are on the lookout for a Talent Partner to join our expanding team.

Who are Hidden?

First and foremost, we are not a recruitment agency. We are diverse talent acquisition from the inside of our clients. We don’t charge a fee per hire, we work to a subscription model.

We build communities of diverse talent and use design methodology to create inclusive systems and processes throughout the talent acquisition life cycle.

We are built around our three core offerings: Product, Consult and Talent.

Product

We have two tech products, built in house, one for candidates and one for hiring managers.

Our candidate app enables us to portray an authentic representation of our partners and their culture, so candidates can get a genuine understanding of what that company can offer them.

Our employer app is used by hiring managers and allows us to present anonymous profiles (removing name, age, gender and education) to tackle unconscious bias at submission stage. We then run the full interview process through the app right through to offer, to create a streamlined process and enable us to gather data on hiring trends.

Consult

These are broken down into many work streams including data analytics, workforce planning, inclusive on-boarding, employer branding consultation and redesigning talent attraction and interview processes, to create the most equitable talent strategy possible.

Talent

We cover permanent, freelance and contract hiring from entry through to C-Suite, and partner with businesses to develop talent initiatives, including OPEN to replace the grad scheme and The Wayve to aid boardroom diversity.

Why do our Partners use Hidden?

- More diverse hiring, sustained by business process change

- We create more inclusive cultures where employees feel that they belong and can flourish

- We enable substantial savings on their typical recruitment spends
