Talent Acquisition

Taykon provides employers with a fixed fee and therefore ‘cost effective’ way to hire talent in the creative, digital and marketing sectors. Our services are configurable, allowing our clients to take on as much or as little of the recruitment process each time they wish to hire.

Lower cost-to-hire metrics compared to traditional recruiters

Our core recruitment service enables your organisation to hire talent efficiently by outsourcing the advertising, shortlisting and interview scheduling. You can also bolt-on optional services, like skills and personality testing, interviewing and selection.

Target Talent:

  • Your dedicated account manager works with you to profile the role and define requirements.
  • We expertly write a discoverable and targeted ad, which can be branded or unbranded.
  • To maximise reach, we use smart tech to quickly distribute the job ad to niche and general job boards, aggregators and social platforms. Advertising charged at cost.
  • Candidate response can be sent to our applicant tracking systems or to any external ATS.



Collect detailed info from stakeholders, staff interviews, assessment tools, company reviews, job descriptions and data sources prior to writing job advertisement.


Our video team scripts and produces short, branded videos that are perfect for job boards and social media. A good way to visually present the possibilities of the role and the benefits of the workplace.

Filter & Rank:

  • Candidates applications are collected and managed through our client-facing applicant tracking system.
  • We use proven manual processes as well as automated matching technology to produce a (ranked) shortlist of best-fit candidates in the optimal timeframe.
  • We forward a shortlist to you which is also accessible via the dashboard of our client portal.



Our skilled resourcers use search and in mail techniques to locate & contact talent in the construction, engineering and mining sectors.


When responding to a job ad, we can screen job seekers with an online form, comprising personality, skills & compliance based questions.

Interview & Select:

  • You provide the times and dates, and we contact, brief and schedule candidate interviews.
  • We hand over the reins so that you can interview your shortlist and fill your vacancy.
  • Select from our optional value add services below if you require further support with interviews, ref checking, offers etc. Ask us for a bespoke package.



We contact, brief and schedule in the candidates for you to interview. We can also conduct phone and recordable video interviews on your behalf.

Skills Assessment

Utilising online tools, we assess candidates skills, enhancing validation and generating better hires, faster onboarding and increased productivity.

Personality Testing

We provide psychometric testing via our external partners, to assist in selection, as well as identify candidate strengths and developmental needs.

Reference Checking

We implement a robust and reliable verification and referencing process to ensure the validity of each and every hiring decision.


We will make offers to successful candidates (and negotiate on your behalf if required), and inform unsuccessful candidates.
