Talent looks to redefine Microsoft Resourcing with the launch of its new Specialist Practice

4 January 2020 – Global technology and digital recruitment specialist Talent has launched a new specialist practice dedicated to servicing Microsoft End Users and Partners across the globe. 

The new Microsoft practice will replace Hunter Charles, which had been Talent’s dedicated brand for Microsoft recruitment for the past seven years. 

By building its Microsoft resourcing capability under the Talent brand, the group will leverage its unique approach and success in the wider technology sector and apply that to the Microsoft market.

Commenting on the move, Talent Founder and Executive Chairman, Richard Earl believes that the speed of digital transformation, which has been accelerated by the global pandemic makes it an opportune moment to invest in supporting Microsoft technologies. “We have been growing our footprint in the Microsoft space for several years and over the past 12 months, we have seen a real spike in demand from both end-users and partners.

“With the advancements of core products like Microsoft Dynamics 365 and the increase in adoption of Microsoft Power Apps, we are seeing expediential growth in demand for Microsoft skills across all territories. With the launch of this new dedicated Microsoft practice, we will deliver the outstanding levels of expertise and customer service synonymous with the Talent brand coupled with a laser focus on a key global market.”

Talent is one of a few providers trusted to recruit directly for Microsoft worldwide and after recently reporting a record financial year, Talent has again been named in the Top 500 Private Companies, moving from 87 to 81 on this year's list. Talent was also ranked 30 (up from 36 last year) in the top 50 best private enterprises to return on shareholder funds after tax.
