Talk Staff new website

Bondholder Talk Staff Group has partnered with fellow Bondholder Alt Design to design and develop a brand-new website for their Talk Staff Recruitment arm of the Group.
 
The new website provides increased functionality and is designed to enhance the user journey whilst providing a valuable resource which can be returned to on a regular basis.

Alt Design worked tirelessly to provide concepts which were aligned to the creative vision of the Talk Staff stakeholders, it was specifically important that the overall look and feel of the website aligned to the creative feel of the business as well as showcasing the way in which Talk Staff operates.
 
David Orange, Sales & Marketing Director explained “It was really important to ensure that users understood why as a recruitment business we are different.  By working with businesses to focus on aligning their values throughout the talent lifecycle and partnering with them to design and deliver a focused approach to both attraction and nurturing of talent this ensures that significant long-term gains can be made.”  

Alt has delivered a website which is both functional and clean, with added benefits of integration into technology which is used by Talk Staff Recruitment employees every day.  This integration is a key aspect of providing a better and enhanced service to the end user.     
Gary Parsons, Managing Director of Talk Staff Group said:  “Talk Staff is definitely going places and after a lot of hard work, we finally show off what we’re really about and have a new website that showcases the amazing work we carry out every day for clients across the UK.”
The new-look website is part of Talk Staff Recruitment's on-going brand journey and will allow visitors to fully understand all aspects of what Talk Staff Recruitment are about and the variety of different services they offer.

Talk Staff Launch Academy

Bondholder Talk Staff Group has launched its brand new ‘Talent Academy’ as the company continues to expand its operations. 

Talk Staff Recruitment will be the first of the Group’s brands to take advantage of the new Talent Academy and is the perfect opportunity for someone looking to develop a career in the recruitment industry, alongside an already successful and growing Belper team.

Talk Staff Group’s Director of People Operations, James Blake explains: “We know what it takes to be an excellent consultant, so we're keen to find people that have already developed the right behaviours and personality and those that align to our business' vision and values.”

Chamber Celebrates Derbyshire Businesses

The Derbyshire Business Awards 2017, hosted by Bondholder East Midlands Chamber, took place last week at fellow Bondholder Derbyshire County Cricket Club's 3aaa County Ground, and a number of Bondholders walked away with top accolades. 

The awards recognise businesses across Derbyshire which have pioneered new concepts and innovation, excelled in commercial enterprise or distinguished themselves with their attitude to workforce development.

Bondholder winners include Purpose Media, Talk Staff Group, Hodgkinson Builders, Derby Museums Trust, Frame Fast UK and Chevin Fleet Solutions

Marketing company Purpose Media scooped the Marketing Campaign of the Year award. 

Matt Wheatcroft, Managing Director of Purpose Media, said: “This award win is really special to us. We’ve won several awards over the years in recognition of our business performance, but to get another award which recognises our strengths in marketing – after being named as the Derby Telegraph’s Creative Business of the Year, in June – is fantastic."

New Bondholder Talk Staff Group was awarded Commitment to People Development award. 

David Orange, Sales and Marketing Director at Talk Staff Group, said: “We are delighted to win this award, not only recognising our success but having worked with our teams on their own individual success too. This is an opportunity for them to celebrate with us.”

Zachary Beer from Bondholder Hodgkinson Builders was awarded Apprentice of the Year. 

Derby Museum Trust's Director of Resources, Mohammed Suleman walked away with the Entrepreneur of the Year award. 

Mohammed said: “It’s an absolute honour to have even been shortlisted. There were some great entrepreneurs in the draw and to win it was not only a shock but also absolutely overwhelming.

Even though my name is on the trophy, this award is for everyone involved with Derby Museums. It’s for all of us, because without them it would not be possible for me to win this. I want to thank the judges and the Chamber for providing me with such an amazing opportunity.”

Manufacturer of the Year was awarded to Bondholder Frame Fast UK.

Bondholder Chevin Fleet Solutions was awarded two accolades at the ceremony. Not only did the firm win the Excellence in International Trade award, but they also walked away with the Business of the Year award. 

Ashley Sowerby, Managing Director of Chevin Fleet Solutions, said: "I was delighted to receive this award on behalf of the whole team at Chevin. We were honoured to have been chosen, bearing in mind the quality of the businesses represented at the awards.

"I would like to thank all of the those who have supported the journey so far, in particular my wife Tracey who has been at my side since we set out 27 years ago."
