A recruitment agency specialising in the healthcare, HR and construction sectors has been set up in Liverpool with backing from business funding provider MSIF.
Talento Limited was launched in June 2016 by experienced recruiters Brian McGlynn and Andrew Coyne and accomplished businessman Michele Dematteis.
Andrew Coyne will head up the healthcare arm which will recruit a variety of roles including senior managers, care managers, registered nurses and support staff for domiciliary, residential care and nursing homes across the UK.
The firm has quickly established itself, building strong relationships with a number of key national and local care providers.
Brian McGlynn leads the HR and construction divisions. The HR team will recruit for a diverse range of professional roles across a range of industry sectors from SMEs to blue chip firms. The construction team will hire for professional and executive appointments including foremen, site managers, project managers and quantity surveyors for clients in the building, civil engineering, highways and house building sectors across the UK.
MSIF’s loan has been used to assist with start-up costs including securing premises, investing in IT and staff.
Michele Dematteis said: “We’ve invested heavily in the best talent and the best recruitment software on the market which will enable us to quickly and accurately match prospective candidates with our clients’ resourcing needs."
“Andrew, Brian and the team each have over ten years’ experience in recruitment and extensive knowledge in their respective sectors which has enabled us to secure some large customers that will require continual support with hiring new staff."
“I’ve worked with MSIF before with other businesses I’ve been involved in. They provide a smooth process and are quick to make their investment decisions. I’m really happy to work with them again and have them on board as an investor."
“Our focus now is to continue to attract experienced staff to our own team and branch out into other sectors. We aim to take on another four staff during the next year.”
MSIF investment manager George Wright said: “I have no doubt Talento will be a successful business. It combines Michele’s impressive business track record with the recruitment industry expertise brought by Andrew and Brian. We’re really pleased to be supporting this company and wish them every success.”
