HIDDEN TALENT

Shhh...

Virtue Talent regularly gets approached by some of the industry's most sort-after, well-regarded, and well-referenced Senior Leaders and Chief Engineers in the Defence, Infrastructure, Building and Design Consulting and Contractor space. 

For the most part, we have known these unique individuals over many years in some capacity or another, whether it be team recruitment, advice, exhibitions, seminars, or networking events.

 

The relationship has been forged, and the trust has been built. 

What is Hidden Talent

Hidden Talent is senior leadership to board-level talent who have contacted us directly and discreetly to advise that they are open to new opportunities. You won't find them on SEEK; if they are on LinkedIn, they are unlikely to answer your mass InMail shot, and if they do answer your call or email, they'll most likely be reserved about sharing their plans with you. Hence, a gap in the market was spotted, and Hidden Talent, a subsidiary of Virtue Talent, was born! 

Think of Hidden Talent as the SEEK for talented Executives. 

We are talking about unicorn candidates. Yes, they do exist! The rare few that have it all - pragmatic leadership, humility, accountability, delivery, results-driven, tech-savvy.

 

Too good to be true? Their track record would say otherwise. 

What's on offer?

You may have heard or encountered these unique individuals at one point (as we did). We add value by taking a meticulous, sensitive and strategic approach to offering your organisation an opportunistic hire.

 

Take, for example, the Project Director of a renowned Tier-One Contractor who directly approached us and is now the CEO employed by a major competitor. See Case Studies.
