Talent International is one of the world's most innovative and fastest growing tech and digital staffing companies specialising in the supply of thousands of high-quality technology and digital professionals through its 16 offices in Australia, New Zealand, Europe and the USA.

With revenue exceeding $550 million per annum, Talent continues to experience outstanding growth and recognition as it aims to reinvent the world of recruitment and workforce management through a range of exciting and groundbreaking initiatives which include:
  • Talent Engage - a unique digital and online community platform for contractor management and contractor engagement solutions.
  • Talent Unleashed Awards - a high profile global program supporting the tech & innovation start up community.
  • 100% Human at Work - a partnership with Virgin Unite to promote progressive and equitable workplace environments.

The company's infrastructure operates from 3 distinct hubs in Sydney, London, and San Francisco representing the branches of APAC, Europe, and North America respectively.

An integral part of our culture and purpose is Talent RISE, our own foundation focused on empowering and inspiring young people that may have encountered challenges or in need of break for their first or second chance. We provide life to change career opportunities with partner organisations and global brands ideally aligned to roles in the tech community.

Having enjoyed considerable success in Australia, Talent RISE is now embarking on a global rollout of the program which has seen us recently launch in NZ and the UK, we will launch in the US. As a result of this expansion, we require a Global VP to lead and coordinate the Talent Rise activities and efforts to ensure consistency of approach across all locations.

This newly created role will include:
  • Ensuring the RISE vision and business plan is further developed and executed in a consistent manner across all regions.

  • Developing corporate partnerships and sponsorship opportunities
  • Accountability, Leadership, development, and management of regional leaders already operational within RISE
  • Acting as a global ambassador for RISE representing the brand and purpose at the highest level.
  • Developing a global message and building on the existing theme of #youngpeoplematter and where possible, aligning this to high profile public figures to nurture support and raise the public profile of RISE and its purpose

You will require:
  • A genuine and unbridled passion for working with young people and unleashing their potential.
  • A proven and successful background overseeing an international NFP organization with specific experience working in the youth community.

  • A commercial understanding and successful track record in attracting and supporting corporate sponsorships and supporters
  • Strategic/entrepreneurial thinker with the ability to execute at pace, efficiently and professionally.
  • An entrepreneurial mindset and a genuine desire to make a positive difference.
  • Degree qualified with a high level of written and verbal communication skills.
  • A natural team player, strong work ethic, and the ability to travel both locally and overseas.

It is important to note that whilst our foundation is currently small in size, we are taking on a huge global issue, and as such, our ambition is a bold one and this role has a mandate to scale.

The role would initially be 3 days a week but could develop into more over time. The role epresents an outstanding opportunity to represent a business that is determined, wherever possible, to innovate, push boundaries and impact its surroundings.
