Talent Flow

Talent Flow


This service provides you with the best talent there is to power your teams through superior service and innovation. Finding the exact match from within the whole global population takes a rather special and robust approach. One which supports every actor in the process, the hiring employer, the suite of candidates, all the staff within Tangent, and all the trusted partners we use globally.  

Also, it optimises every step of the recruitment journey from the first briefing to the first day on site.


Each person in the recruitment journey will have their own set of needs, and even within the client organisation, this can differ from HR to line managers and PMs. Although Talent Flow is designed to benefit everyone, here are the benefits for employers: 

  • Incredibly accurate submission of the minimal number of CVs, saving everyone time and hassle 
  • Value-add information on every candidate including Tangents own one-way video profile Snapfiles, making the selection process quicker and more effective
  • Time is saved by every unnecessary aspect of the recruitment process being stripped out from your recruitment tasks including a unique candidate scoring system to help you identify talent quickly and interview coaching for line managers where appropriate, leaving you to focus on the important aspects of control and decision making.
  • The candidate experience is carefully managed both at Tangent and supportive of line managers & HR to improve the recruitment and to build your employer brand with talent community.
  • Because Talent Flow is data driven you will have clear metrics, reporting and KPIs with every assignment, this will guide each assignment, and also slice as knowledge for future recruitment, everyone continues to learn.

As the name suggests, Talent Flow creates a frictionless process to move talent through space and time swiftly. The details of the journey are:


Initial discussion with one of Tangent’s specialist niche recruiters. Our experts understand your market, achieved by our consultants’ long tenure with us in their niche market.

We'll uncover the culture and environment through interviews or by attending site personally to fully gain insight.

Global Search

Our search method takes a concentric rings approach; we start by seeking talent locally and then work our way out

nationally and globally to find you the best. But local talent is usually best option, because of cultural fit and the avoidance

of relocation.

Our search is a powerful blend of channels and teams, channel and % of the source: Database 35%; Advertising 15%; Headhunting

27%; Social Media Team 12%; Referrals – 11%. Our 24 / 7 Search teams are always on with access to over 190


Also, our searching begins before your job spec has even been written; we are busy building relations and market mapping

the talent across Communications, and Technology every day of the year, in over 30 countries.

Managed Selection

Our tightly managed selection process blends efficiency with effectiveness. We filter our long list of candidates through a

triple filter system through three levels of Tangent recruiters and managers.

Also, we provide line managers with tools and support to help them make the right decisions swiftly. Tools include Snapfiles; these are five-minute one-way video interviews loaded via email link based on your chosen questions.

The support given covers coaching for line managers to conduct interviews and methods work through shortlisting to the final selection, and we go to great lengths to ensure communication and feedback are accurate and timely. 

Managed Selection Process

Although this step appears after the Managed Selection process, our consultants would have covered every conceivable issue before an offer is made, it's what we call the ‘No Surprises’ game plan.

When you come to offer the candidate the offer they are expecting; our prepping ensures the offer is accepted. For example, if a contractor is relocating, we'll have advised them of tax impact early on in the process.


Once the offer has been made, our compliance and logistics team swing into action. They will ensure all the paper-work, compliance and agreements are shared and approved.

If relocation is required, then the full range Assignments support is offered, see our full service: More info on Assignment Support>

Each candidate is supplied a welcome pack on day one outlining the offer, Tangent support numbers and company/role information.

The Flow modules are flexible and can be adjusted to your systems and processes, for example feeding into HR portals such as SAP Fireglass.

We’ll ensure the service is aligned with HR, line managers and project managers and that communication flows smoothly across all teams.

Once Flow is set up full training is given and reporting starts after the 1st week, along with transparent KPI reporting to gauge our level of success.
