Embedded Talent

In an ever more competitive market for talent, we understand the need to scale up and the time that goes into growing talent teams, which is why we created our embedded talent consultancy.

From busy agencies to iconic brands and seed-stage start-ups, our embedded talent model is aimed at helping those scaling up to hire talent quickly and cost-effectively.

Secondments work brilliantly when you want a dedicated internal recruiter to either bolster your internal team hiring power or to have the ability to plug in a top class recruiter without having to train them or onboard them...!

Growing at Scale using the On-Site Solution


During a period of rapid expansion in their biddable, planning and agency teams Essence seconded members of Sphere's team.

Roles we helped fill included: Account Director, Planning Manager, Paid Social Director, PPC Manager, Media Planning Business Director and Data Analysts.
