Kayleigh Bradley: Uniting Talent
Uniting Talent is a Recruitment Agency, founded by Hartlepool born Kayleigh Bradley. Kayleigh has always lived in the Teesside area and has a great love for its people, so it is perhaps little wonder that she chose to work in such a people-centric industry. With a history of working in recruitment dating back to 2007, Kayleigh has developed an intricate knowledge of the recruitment industry and has a wealth of experience working in recruitment strategy. As well as working on recruitment strategy, Kayleigh’s previous roles have allowed her to gain active experience of building consultative teams of up to seventy-five staff.
With her detailed knowledge and broad experience if the recruitment industry, Kayleigh was able to launch her own business, Uniting Talent, in February 2021.
Uniting Talent’s market is based around the SME market and they work with the smallest companies to the largest of SMEs. A typical slice of their market share would be Manufacturing, Schools, Light Industry, Business Offices and all other SME business market. The business also works very closely with apprenticeship providers to enable the opportunity for organic, natural, growth from the young people of Hartlepool; it aims to focus future growth on the local labour market and the opportunities that can be provided for local people.
When Uniting Talent was first launched, Kayleigh ran it from her own home. However, by October 2021, the business was ready to scale up, so Kayleigh made the decision to move into a unit at the Hartlepool Enterprise Centre. Moving to the Enterprise Centre has allowed Kayleigh to take on two new members of staff, who work under Kayleigh, supporting to organisation’s operational growth.
