Proudly supporting the best and brightest education institutions

  • Project Transform was one of the key enablers of the University's Global Strategy in 2020 and the largest transformation project ever undertaken by the University. Delivering an initiative of such scale demanded a team of approximately 160 people, a large proportion of whom were contractors. The majority of these contractors were provided and managed by Talent. I have found the team to be knowledgeable, extremely well-connected, and personable in their approach. More importantly, the end-to-end approach to their service, mobility, and agility to deliver against challenging briefs has been a great support. I’d recommend that anyone undertaking a similar initiative engages with Talent as their resourcing partner.
