eTalent is small but growing fast.
Our team is committed to our product and it’s capabilities and we want the world to know about it.
We thought we would start by telling you a bit about each team member.
Ray, tell us about your role in the business:
I am Sales Director mainly targeting new business. I also work closely with Nik Plevan, our Founder and MD on strategy.
How did you get involved with e-talent?
I met Nik through a networking group and when I saw the software I recognised how it could streamline the recruitment process for all stakeholders. I am delighted that Nik offered me the opportunity to work with eTalent. I know from firsthand experience that managers and supervisors face increased time constraints and cannot always afford the appropriate time to prepare properly for interviews. eTalent introduces an immediate step-change in recruitment at fixed affordable costs.
It is widely recognised that CVs are not an effective method of determining whether a candidate will succeed if appointed. eTalent produces candidate reports automatically with comprehensive role-based personality and behavioral assessments, key factors relating to success. Interview preparation is simple in a standard format with suggested interview questions based on specific traits. Nik and his team have developed a great product, it is exciting to be involved in the next stages of development and growth.
What’s your business background?
I was in manufacturing for thirty six years supplying drinks, electronics and food sectors with high quality packaging. After studying I commenced my career in design moving on to sales and senior management positions dealing with local, national and international customers. During my time in senior roles I witnessed the pressures now being faced by managers and staff, continuous change is the norm. It is a rewarding experience to be able to offer a product that can save time, resource and money for businesses whilst making life easier for employees.
