We can help you net the perfect job

Talent was founded in 2019 when our Managing Director Daniella Toomes realised there was a gap in the market for a reliable, hands-on and straightforward recruitment agency in West Yorkshire. The business quickly took off, weathering unexpected conditions such as the COVID-19 pandemic, and is now a trusted, go-to agency for many Yorkshire businesses.

Talent is deeply rooted in our West Yorkshire community and we focus on the important role that recruitment plays in our local area. We’re proud to be the sponsors of Dewsbury Moor Under 10s Rugby Team and one of the range of local sponsors for Methley Field Festival.

How would we describe ourselves?

Well, us Yorkshire folk are known for our modesty, so we decided to ask our clients because they know us best!

They described us as:

  • Reliable
  • Trustworthy
  • Down To Earth
  • Approachable
  • Professional
  • Progressive
  • Efficient
  • Positive
  • Passionate

We’re pretty happy with that. That’s us. That’s what we stand for. That’s Talent.

Meet The Team

Our team brings together a wealth of experience in recruitment and building relationships.

Daniella Toomes

Firstly, I would like to say how grateful I am to have such an amazing team working with me.

I’m Daniella the founder and MD of Talent-UK. People with Passion – no fuss, no mess, just honesty! I wanted to create an environment that was trusted, hard-working and to be an employer that gives back. We have flexible working and (if I do say so myself) an amazing commission structure! It’s about looking after the people that work with you. I’m proud of my team every day! We celebrate every success and importantly always keep learning and improving ourselves.

I have a beautiful family with two amazing bulldogs with their own personalities – normally grumpy and sleepy! I love spending time with my family and friends socialising and eating out. I would eat out every night if my other half would let me. “Supporting local businesses” I say! I love horror films and Disney films too (ssshh you didn’t hear that from me). I’m soon to be a Mrs in 2023 so roll on that party!

A word of advice: be kind, be grateful and most of all enjoy life you only get to live it once.
