Global Chief Marketing Officer


  • Exceptional opportunity with entrepreneurial global leader in its field
  • New York based with global responsibility and travel


Talent is one of the fastest growing global recruiting agencies in the world with 17 offices across Europe, Australia, New Zealand and most recently the US (San Francisco and New York). We specialize in placing the highest calibre candidates within the technology, digital, creative and life sciences industries. In 2019, Gallup ranked us one of the top 40 places to work in the world and Good Company rated us the top 20 best companies to give back. To date, our revenue exceeds US$500 million per year and we continue to experience outstanding growth and recognition every year.

Talent is reinventing the recruitment industry through a range of exciting and ground-breaking initiatives which include:

  • Talent Rise – our foundation which works with young people experiencing barriers to employment secure life changing employment opportunities in the tech & digital sector.
  • 100% Human at Work – a global movement partnership with Virgin Unite to promote progressive and inclusive workplace environments and address the challenges associated with the Future of Work.
  • Above all else, a large component of the future growth of the company is pinned on the development of Talent Engage - a unique community digital platform for the management of contract tech and digital professionals. In addition to serving as a sophisticated onboarding and workforce management solution for clients, the platform also provides offerings around Financial Services, Healthcare, Personal & Professional Development, Lifestyle, and Wellbeing – in effect a life hub for contract and temporary workers. We have identified the potential for significant additional revenue through cross selling opportunities to corporate partners in these various sectors.

With such a bold mission, you can probably guess that marketing at Talent is not like it is at other organizations. We are not afraid to take risks. Our goal is to break Talent from the pack by creating bold, human and optimistic marketing touchpoints that challenge the status quo and propel our brand into unchartered territory. We don’t just “make it pretty”. We get results.

We are looking for a Visionary. A creative thinker who is excited by our mission and who can lead us to market in a way that separates us from everyone else. We need an innovator who is curious and can build great relationships.
