Meet the candidate

"I don't believe part-time working should mean half-skilled talent! My job allows me to use my past work experience in a role I’m genuinely passionate about and that challenges me whilst still allowing me to be a mother, not just alongside it but running both at the same time...

"I am totally fulfilled in my both aspects of my life and TalentPool have a very engaged, experienced and conscientious employee who really wants to deliver."

Candidate quality

There was a great response for this role. We even had to close the job posting early.

"Within 24 hours of posting the job advert on the 2to3days website we were receiving applications from very qualified, experienced and professional candidates. Overall, the applicants were very impressive. We had plenty of choice and could have hired a number of candidates."
