Welcome to TalentBox Chris Walsh

15.02.2022

Hi everyone! My name is Chris and I am based in Manchester office. I joined TalentBox already having 2 years in Software Sales recruitment which I have been doing alongside a degree apprenticeship in Business and Management, finishing later this year.

What types of roles are you working on at TalentBox?

I'm lucky enough to be working with some of the most exciting pre-IPO vendors valued >$1bn in expanding their GTM teams across EMEA, primarily in the UK and DACH. These vendors are situated in some extremely fast-growing areas like AI, ML, Data Science and Analytics.

What originally drew you to the market? 

It was by complete luck that I fell into the Software Market but was immediately enticed by how intriguing some of the solutions are on the market and how they’re going to shape the world we all live in. I also really appreciate the commercial side of how vendors operate, so specialising in Sales recruitment really made sense to me.

What are the biggest challenges in your space right now? 

Definitely finding candidates! Each and every person is being approached multiple times a day so it is vital that our interactions are unique, professional and stand out from the rest of the crowd.

What prompted your move to TalentBox? 

I loved how everyone was set on one thing, and that’s growth. The company has already hired 4 people since I joined at the start of the year and there’s no slowing down- it’s incredibly hard to scale a recruitment company this fast but that’s not stopping us.

Outline a few personal and professional goals for 2022

I want to help hire the second wave of recruits for the Manchester team and start mentoring them to ensure this office is as successful as the London team and eventually, the US team.
