What is a Talent Pool?


The simple answer is - a talent pool is a database of potential job candidates. These candidates have usually already expressed interest in joining the organisation through applying to job openings or accepting an invite to join. Elevate provides the platform for organisations to cultivate relationships with candidates whose skills and expertise align with company competencies and values.


Why join?

Recruiters and HR Managers use talent pools as a reserve of talent they can turn to when they need to fill a certain position. This means that when employers have to fill certain positions, they will already have a reserve of high-quality, interested candidates to choose from- You! 



Will I be inundated with emails if I join?

The short answer is No. We are not a job board or a mailing list – every interaction is direct and meaningful. When you are sent a recommended role it means that the position fits your skills set.

What sort of Employers use a Talent Pool?

We are used by many Employers looking to utilise a Talent Pool made up of relevant and interested candidates.

What sort of jobs are filled through a Talent Pool?

Our clients recruit for a diverse range of positions through their Talent Pools from Marketing to Engineering dependent on their current recruitment needs.

What does being “matched” mean?

If you’re matched with a role, it means that you match the skills criteria set by the employer and that you’d probably be a great fit for it. It will be up to you if you are interested and decide to apply for the role.

What can I do to maximise my chances of being matched with roles?
