“We’ve found Your Talent Solutions to be a pleasure to work with and they have helped us to achieve significant improvements across our recruitment function:
They used their expertise to help us develop an employee value proposition that they have successfully used to promote us to high quality candidates we would not otherwise have attracted.
- They have halved the time-to-hire and we are sifting through a quarter of the CVs we did before.
- They have helped me to make significant improvements to our gender pay gap.
- We have used their video assessment tool to speed-up the recruitment process and to gain a far better insight into candidates than we used to gain through CVs alone.
- They provide us with weekly insights and management information on recruitment that have allowed the HR function to drive improvements to our recruitment process.
As a consequence of these improvements, we are saving time, speeding-up the resourcing of our organisation, hiring with more confidence and saving money.”

“Your Talent Solutions have been successfully running our volume recruitment programme on an annual basis for the last few years and we have always been happy to engage them year on year. We find them easy to do business with and can rely on them to provide a great service and support our business in finding the right individuals in a challenging market. Each year we have a requirement to hire 60 plus staff over a short period of time and Your Talent Solutions have taken the hard work out of this so we can focus on the core elements of preparing our business for the year ahead. Each year they have looked at where they can make the process more efficient and the evolution of our relationship has seen us move completely online through the pandemic and benefit from video applications and pre-booked and organised Zoom meetings for final interviews that have taken all hassle out of the recruitment process, giving me a lot of time back as well. I would recommend Your Talent Solution

“One of our subsidiary businesses suggested I speak with Your Talent Solutions, having had positive conversations of their own with the team. I met with YTS over video call and then in person and was impressed by the level of service they could provide, above and beyond what we’d expect from recruitment suppliers, and also the savings that we could make through them. They helped us to collaboratively fill a tricky Developer role we’d had open for some time as their first project, and some months later I’m delighted to say we’re working really well with the YTS team. YTS are making placements with us, supporting our Talent function in a number of ways including researching our local markets, catchment areas, and even suggesting and organising conversations with lateral service providers to solve our own unique challenges. They’ve also provided slide decks and information we can share with stakeholders to paint the picture of the current UK recruitment market, the changes it’s undergoing and how some sizable competitors are tackling those challenges themselves, which was extremely useful. We’re working really effectively as a team and YTS have become a trusted advisor in a short space of time, and I know I can get support and advice as well as transparency whenever we need it.”
Amanda Harvey, Head of HR – Staci
“We started working with Your Talent Solutions towards the end of 2022 and we have been happily working with them ever since. One area we had found difficult when working with agencies or hiring ourselves was being able to get a strong first impression from a CV alone when the roles we often hire pull in different skills from several common roles. YTS suggested that we introduce a short one-way video stage to our hiring process to review alongside a CV and candidate summary. This allows the candidate to bring their CV to life and allows us to see how the candidate presents themselves and this helps us understand them and their application much better. I’m delighted to say that almost a year on we have continued to make successful hires with YTS, and we have subsequently recommended them to our parent company who now use them for their outsourced recruitment needs too. YTS have been different to the other agencies we have used; they provide weekly recruitment updates with market insights and are always available for support on recruitment challenges, and they have filled all of the roles we’ve given them too.”
