Talentful launches world’s first personality-based jobseeker platform


Talentful, the team-building experts for some of the biggest tech companies in the world including Amazon, WeWork and King, launches the world’s first personality-based jobseeker platform.

According to research from Gallup, 85% of the global workforce are described as “emotionally disconnected from the workplace”. Talentful believes that this is because the way people find and apply for jobs is fundamentally broken.

That’s why they’re on a mission to unleash human potential and the new culture matching platform was born out of the belief that even the most brilliant people will only hit their full potential when surrounded by a balanced and supportive team.

Talentful has perfected the practice of building great teams by deploying scalable in-house talent teams for hundreds of the world’s most innovative companies, helping them to achieve sustainable growth.

Now, they are bringing their expertise directly to jobseekers with its ‘Insightful’ Culture Matching Platform.The tailored questions, created with the help of a psychometric expert, algorithmically calculates the jobseeker’s personality type, to give one of eight personality archetypes:

  • The Leader
  • The Innovator
  • The Team Player
  • The Adaptable One
  • The Executor
  • The Analyst
  • The Influencer
  • The Entrepreneur

Talentful - The Entrepreneur

Then, it connects the candidate to the real positions on the job market based on their results and shows the best-matched jobs available to apply for, giving a personalised culture fit score out of 100 for each position.

So, whether you’ll be taking charge as The Leader (like Winston Churchill), focused and calm as The Executor (like Amazon’s Jeff Bezos), or the ideas person as The Entrepreneur(like Richard Branson), you’ll be walking into your new job confident that you’ll be a perfect match for your new team!

Phil Blaydes, Talentful founder and co-CEO, said:“Over the last few years Talentful has helped some of the best tech companies in the world build great teams, and we’ll still continue to do that.

But now we’re also focused on giving power back to the jobseekers, giving them the best chance for them to find their ideal team by matching their unique personality with the perfect role. Our mission at Talentful is to unleash human potential and we believe the new culture matching platform is an exciting step to help people enjoy work and get more fulfilment from their careers.”
