Talent Acquisition Strategist

I’ve followed TalentBee’s journey since launch, and been impressed by their fresh approach to talent acquisition and EB. I’ve previously worked mostly as an in-house recruiter but as I was thinking about my next career step, I became confident that consulting was the right next move for me: I’d learn so much from working with different companies, people and roles. I also loved the idea of working with people with the same mindset around TA and EB. Aspects that are important to me in my work: autonomy & ownership, flexibility, moving fast, and teammates I want to spend time with. TalentBee ticked all of these boxes for me.

Nea Raaska

Employer Branding Strategist

I wanted to grow my career in employer branding & had just made a hard decision to resign from job in an EB agency since the environment wasn't a fit for me. Before joining TalentBee, I knew that I wanted to continue working in an agency. You can learn so much about different industries and companies! I wanted my future team to share the same mindset about work-life-balance and growth. How to find a job where the growth mindset doesn't mean sacrificing your well-being? TalentBee offered “the best of both worlds”. TalentBee also has an exceptionally clear vision and strategy. Clarity plays a big role in creating well-being at work.

Saara Kyllönen

Co-Founder & Chief Talent Officer

In spring 2022 I felt a bit lost with my career. I started talking with other talent acquisition professionals to ask them what the best workplace would look like. I noticed that roughly 80 % of the people I talked to, were unhappy with their working lives and considered changing careers. I thought that I had to change that! The talent Acquisition industry needs talent – we can’t lose these experts! That’s why we launched TalentBee. We’re on a mission of creating the best workplace for Talent Acquisition Professionals. This is how I got my lost inspiration back!

Our why 💛

Our mission is to make sure talent acquisition isn’t a growth bottleneck for fast-growing SaaS businesses. We’re aiming towards this by raising talent acquisition professionals to an equally valued position with other business growth experts! That’s why we’re here!

FAQ - Frequently asked questions

Do you work fully remote?

Yes. You can really work where ever you want. But there's a dog friendly office for people who love dogs and offices coming up in Helsinki soon, too!

What does it mean to combine recruitment and employer branding?

Our solution to our SaaS customer's hiring problems is to combine recruitment and employer branding. In highly competitive talent markets one just simply can't work without the other.

In our everyday life it means that recruitment and employer branding professionals work seamlessly together as multi-professional TalentBee teams in customer collaborations.

And yes, we think these are two different roles – recruiters and employer branding experts are typically very different from each other and have different skillsets. We don't push them into the same role.

Whether you are a recruiter or an EB pro – this means that you can really do your own sting & focus on what you do best!

What kind of leadership & culture do you have?

We are aiming to be the best workplace for talent acquisition professionals and one big part of that is investing in building our culture and good leadership.

We're only just getting everything started, but to this point we have focused on building good processes, creating a value-led, growth-minded and honest culture and finding the best practices for internal communication.

Our whole culture as well as leadership will be based on giving and receiving feedback. This one is tightly related to our fuck-up culture, where it's psychologically safe to fail. We are trying a lot of new things and that's why this is really crucial for us.

We lead a clear vision for TalentBee: becoming the best workplace for TA pros & the best talent acquisition partner for SaaS companies. We aim for growth.

We are really open about this: a culture of high growth and radical transparency is definitely not for everyone.
