    Talent Acquisition is just not a recruiting role.  TA work involves Planning, Strategy, Workforce Segmentation, Employer Branding, Talent Scoping & Management, Stakeholder Management, Metrics and Analytics’ and Marketing.

    If you are looking to move into a TA role or hire one, it’s important to understand that the role although having similarities has also some substantial differences when compared to an agency recruiter role.
