Talent acquisition: the lowdown

Talent acquisition jobs are a broad area of professionals that work in all aspects of attracting, pooling , recruiting, interviewing and selecting talent for an organization. However, this exciting sector certainly stretches even further than that, as it also involves onboarding, induction and in some case, elements of training and retention, depending on the organization.

At Miller, we always emphasize the importance of talent acquisition jobs as a specialist role that requires a vast but profound skillset including organizational knowledge, ability to adapt to process, administrative skills, top notch communication skills and people skills to fully understand candidates and colleagues across an organization, including HR teams, R&D departments and the board of directors. That’s why we invest in close relationships with our clients, making sure that we understand their story and goals in order to pinpoint the people who best fit their organizational culture, often in the most high-level positions in the company’s organizational chart.
