Our Story

Vertical Talent was launched in 2005 to fill the gap within specialist procurement and supply chain recruitment in response to the frustration at the 'one size fits all' philosophy used by many large recruitment firms.

We recognize that talent markets are becoming more specialized - and that these markets should be supported with a specialist recruitment service and career management platform. Today we are true to our position as the most trusted name in procurement and supply chain recruitment, and remain the market leader.

In 2008, Vertical Talent's position was strengthened by the acquisition from Drake International. We now have all the benefits of a global organization whilst remaining a boutique specialist provider. This has enabled our rapid expansion and we now have offices across Australia, Singapore, and Canada.

We sought to raise the bar in recruitment and since our launch we have fast become a preferred provider to a range of international and local organisations.

The Vertical Talent team have worked and managed successful search and advertising recruitment campaigns in the U.K, Europe, Africa, America, Canada, Asia Pacific, the Middle East and Australia.

We now operate predominately across the Asia Pacific Region with a recent expansion in North America.
