Our story

Technology is an incredible enabler, but we should never discard the utter importance of the human experience.

Where it all started

After a 10-year career in Human Resources within the technology industry, I decided that I would like to take on the challenge of improving my Recruitment Industry experience, by joining the other side. If I was having such a hard time with the talent service providers, there must be countless other companies experiencing the same. I wanted to change that.

In 2018 shortly after this thought, and the buy-in of my business partner, Talentank was born.

Talentank does not plan to reinvent the wheel in the Talent space, but to rather breathe the human experience back into an industry that has become much about pushing CV’s, bums on seats and earning a buck. The candidate and the client are equally important in the equation, and both should be treated in a considered way to ensure that their needs are met and expectations are surpassed.

In 2020 Talentank partnered with Cogent: an Intelligent Automation business. The partnership gives us unique access to a business actively participating in the emerging technology space, and the inherent technical skills of their team. With their support we are able to deliver curated top technical talent to our clients.

In 2021 we launched the Digital TeamMate Service, again in partnership with Cogent. The service brings emerging technology to the SME space and helps businesses solve their talent challenges from a different perspective.

As a woman who has worked in the technology industry for most of my career, I am also incredibly passionate about supporting the various initiatives that create awareness, education and opportunities for women in the STEM careers. Together with Cogent, Talentank was afforded the opportunity to bring the UK initiative Women in RPA to Africa. Through this initiative, as well as others we plan to embark on, we will ensure that having a positive impact in our local communities remains an important part of our business culture.

We are certainly proud of the successes we have achieved in a short while and look to the future with our bold vision to keep building on today for the benefit of our people, clients and communities.

Our Community Impact

In the same way that we as a business benefit from our communities, we believe in contributing towards helping our communities flourish. We are passionate about the initiatives we support and we hold a special place for those that support education and inclusivity in the technology space.

In partnership with our sister company Cogent, it is an incredible honour to collaborate with the Women in RPA UK team to bring The Africa Chapter to our shores. We hope to educate and raise the kind of awareness that will inspire many women to take up careers in Technology, specifically Intelligent Automation.

WIRPA – The Africa Chapter
“A report from McKinsey found that diverse companies perform better, hire better talent, have more engaged employees and retain workers better than companies that do not focus on diversity and inclusion.” [cio.com|

Women in RPA is an initiative founded in the UK by a group of like-minded humans with great ambition to change the landscape of what inclusivity looks like in the RPA space. Women in RPA- The Africa Chapter is the Africa specific chapter aimed at augmenting this work by representing the unique context, challenges, solutions and inspiration prevalent in Africa.

“We will provide a spotlight on successful women leading the way in our exciting, thriving and emerging tech industry. We will celebrate talent and encourage both personal growth and professional development by highlighting stories so you can learn, discover and get inspired. Our mission is to ensure that we continue to build a strong, global network of highly talented and innovative professionals. Follow along with us.”
