Global technology and digital recruitment specialist Talent has announced a move to new offices in the City.

This move comes at a time of exceptional growth for the global business despite the impact of COVID-19, as Talent looks to redefine Microsoft Resourcing with the launch of its new Specialist Microsoft Practice, which replaces their previous Microsoft brand, Hunter Charles. (Talent reported a group turnover of $726 million for FY20, and a year-on-year growth of 14%.) Due to impressive growth in team numbers, the new practice needed to invest in a larger office space, with further plans to expand across the UK and into Europe in the months ahead.​

Talent are one of a few providers trusted to recruit directly for Microsoft worldwide and after recently reporting a record financial year, Talent has again been named in the Top 500 Private Companies, moving from 87 to 81 on this year’s list. Talent was also ranked 30 (up from 36 last year) in the top 50 best private enterprises to return on shareholder funds after tax.

The newly appointed Sales Director for Talent’s Microsoft Practice, Zak Sheikh, said: “Talent is a brand you can’t ignore, and one that is truly committed to redefining the world of recruitment. My ambition aligns with theirs, and I’m looking forward to developing Talent’s Microsoft offering, growing our presence over the next three years to take the practice to the global stage.

“This new office is a fantastic move for us. Being part of a wider cluster of innovative businesses and freelancers will undoubtedly drive us to provide an even better service to Microsoft Partners and End Users, and help us redefine the world of recruitment.”​

The co-working space, City Pavilion, features modern, quirky furnishings and a wide range of amenities including showers, bike storage, as well as an on-site bike club and bike repair shop also offering laundry and dry cleaning. It is located next door to Cannon Street mainline and Underground station, a stone’s throw away from the City and Borough Market.
