Reach out for an exploratory conversation

Our Talent Mapping Service provides in-depth and thoroughly researched lists of candidate profiles based on your specific brief. Talent Maps can be used by your TA or Exec Search teams for direct engagement against current or future vacancies. They also provide an overview of the talent demographics in a given market. Maps can be sector, geography, role, level or diversity-specific.

Why use Talent Mapping?

Planning to ensure your business has the right people today and for tomorrow is vital to any organisation. HR leaders need to critically appraise their organisation’s strategic direction, conduct detailed competitor and sector analysis, and identify what skills will be required for the future.

The most common reason for talent mapping services is to help an organisation find and acquire the best talent. By enabling you to have a complete picture of the available talent in target markets, you can get a clear idea of the task ahead. Our talent maps are typically the prelude to a pipelining process.

Talent Mapping Use Cases

Sourcing Tool

Talent Mapping is a valuable tool to enhance the efficiency of time-constrained Talent Acquisition (TA) or In-house Executive Search teams. It involves identifying suitable individuals with the relevant backgrounds, skills, and characteristics. Subsequently, TA teams can reach out and connect with the individuals on the talent map to create interest in current or upcoming opportunities, such as succession planning, multiple hiring, investment hiring, or entering new markets. 

Providing Insight

Talent Maps are filled with valuable insights that businesses can utilize in numerous ways to gain a better understanding of a specific market, job category, location, or even competitors.

Talent Mapping Service Benefits

Talent Mapping is an essential service for identifying high-quality candidates for scarce, in-demand, and senior positions. The benefits of adopting a talent mapping process for your organisation include: 

A talent map will help you to build an understanding of where pools of niche, scarce, and in-demand talent are located, who employs them, and the skills they possess. The data gathered should be used to inform both current and future recruitment strategies, as well as a tool to inform broader workforce planning and people initiatives.    

Talent mapping can help quantify a particular market, allowing you to understand talent demographics. It answers questions including:

  • Where is the talent we need? 
  • Who is employing it? 
  • How prevalent is it? 
  • How diverse is it?

Access to robust talent mapping allows your team to focus on what they should be doing - engaging with passive talent and building relationships that result in great hires.

Our talent maps can be used to give you vital insight into under-represented social groups as part of your diversity strategy.
