About Us

The name Talensia was born from the idea of two essential characteristics most valued within successful teams – Talent and Wisdom.  Talensia embodies the synergy between talent and wisdom tempered by experience, and good judgement.

Founded by experienced recruitment professional, Gareth Parsons, who has worked within the industry for twenty years. Leading successful consultancy teams across a multitude of sectors, disciplines, and specialisms – working at both local and national scale. Gareth brings experience of recruiting at all levels (junior to senior), with a focus on management, executive and board level roles.  Supported by a network of experienced associates, Gareth and his team can deploy the exact resource required for your talent attraction needs.

For candidates, we offer CV and career reviews for those who work within the sectors we operate. Naturally, all free of charge. We are here for your whole career and will be there to consult with you at every move – not just for your next role.

It is a privilege to work with incredible organisations to enable them to have such a great impact on our world.

In a time when value for money, flexibility, inclusivity, and quality of service are paramount, Talensia has been envisaged and built from the ground up, to provide just that.
