Our Story

About TalentHQ Recruitment

TalentHQ Recruitment was formed in Hertfordshire 2013 with an abundance of enthusiasm, just a phone, outlook email and a Cactus desk plant.

Within our first 12 months of trading TalentHQ Recruitment won Best New Business at the FSB Business Awards and was a Finalist for Most Promising New Business at Inspiring Hertfordshire Awards. That’s not by chance. It’s because we stood out – we had to. And made sure of it!

Our genuine passion for talent-spotting has seen us flourish and had growth in a highly competitive market during these past few years. It’s also an exciting time in our HQ as we have our own ambitious growth plans.

Therefore, getting your repeat business is essential to us. So please be assured, as you will receive a truly outstanding service from the TalentHQ Recruitment team.

Emma Brindle – Founder & Chief Talent Spotter

From London – Dubai - Hertfordshire, it’s fair to say that Emma has had a rather impressive career within recruitment spanning over 12 years.

Emma started her recruitment career by successfully setting up a new division within an Executive Search firm in Mayfair, London.  Always one for a challenge, Emma then moved to a local recruitment agency and helped turn around an underperforming office into one of the company's most improved offices that year, winning numerous awards at the annual conference.

Emma was soon spotted as one of the company's ‘leadership talent’ and was asked to relocate to Dubai to help set up their new recruitment arm. Following nearly five years in Dubai, Emma returned to Hertfordshire and launched her first successful ‘award winning’ recruitment business.

If you are genuinely looking to add the best ‘talent’ to your team, then please pick up that phone and ask to speak to Emma directly as she’d love to hear from you and always enjoys popping in to meet new clients for a cuppa and finding out about your business objections.

For the record, it’s a nicely brewed Tea, with a splash of milk and no sugar for Emma…

"Emma instantly struck me as a high calibre candidate and I was determined she should be part of our team and was proved right. Emma’s strong work ethic and personable nature meant she became very successful in her role, winning a number of accolades at our annual company conference. It became clear early on that she was a future talent for our business and Emma elected to join our prestigious Leadership Programme, graduating with flying colours. In order to progress her career and change her lifestyle, we supported Emma’s move to our Dubai operation, where again she rose to the challenge and proved herself in a new environment. I will continue to follow Emma’s career with interest as the talent I spotted back then continues to develop."

"Working with Emma is refreshing! Not only do you get a person who is 100% dedicated to her position and career you also get a person who understands your corporate goals and does all she can to achieve and be part of the team, the greater organisation or profession. It is a pleasure to recommend Emma, I would work with her again, would employ her and if the opportunity arose have her as a Director of my business. You can not knock her spirit, wonderful personality and drive to succeed."
