    What is a Talent Bank?

    A Talent Bank is an online portal that allows you to harness your own internal pool of talent and make it immediately available to people in the organisation that require staff for short or long term assignments of any kind. Your Talent Pool might only comprise your existing staff pool, so you can offer them internal opportunities, or you may include other groups (local jobseekers for example) or, if you are a college or university, your student base can form the talent pool.

    Rather than solely looking for external candidates, a Talent Bank allows you to build your own pool of talent.

    How does it work?

    Keystone will build you a web-based Talent Bank to fit your organisation. You have a customised web tool, that allows hiring managers to place job vacancies and assignments directly in the web portal.
    Your Talent Pool (ie candidate workers) simply register and create a profile and can apply for roles or can be searched for directly by the hiring manager. Smart alerts notify the talent pool whenever a suitable opportunity arises, rather than requiring the candidate to monitor for job adverts. Managers can search the Talent Pool based on skills, keywords etc and directly offer assignments of any nature to the worker.
