Boutique financial recruitment and consultancy service TALTRAN Global is ending 2020 on a high with a staff promotion, a record number of client briefs and a developing portfolio of large-scale organizational realignment projects.
Karla Cruz has been promoted to Senior Recruiter after a strong year building candidate sourcing capabilities and delivering high quality financial professionals, under the challenging circumstances presented by the pandemic. Her previous roles, as an Assistant CEO and Vice Consul, have aligned with her finance experience to offer clients and candidates all round business experience that adds value to decision making on new hires. During the year she has worked on 20 briefs in industries including Artificial Intelligence and Sustainability and been personally responsible for sourcing over 5000 potential candidates.
“This year has demanded creativity, diligence and tenacity in finding candidates who meet the high standards that we demand on behalf of our clients,” commented TALTRAN Global President and Co-Founder, John Cassidy. “Karla exemplifies the combination of genuine, long-term experience working in accounting and finance departments, coupled with the broader executive experience which gives us the edge in understanding business needs and finding top talent that can deliver results.”
During the year TALTRAN Global has more than trebled the number of client briefs it has worked on and has seen a related increase in senior placements. Cassidy commented, “The pandemic has caused many businesses to think even more carefully about their need for finance professionals whose personal attributes are as good as their technical skills. We’ve established a reputation for finding talent that understands business strategy and knows how to bring technological and human resources together to implement change.”
With a new year just around the corner Cassidy sees an economic recovery that will be uneven and demand flexibility, agility and superior decision-making capability. “Finance departments should be at the heart of sustainable growth. We are seeing more businesses approaching us for fundamental reviews of their finance teams with a view to significant reorganization and upgrading of capability. They recognize that growth opportunities are coming but that it will require investment in the best people.”
