Talentheads boss Sam Spoors has urged businesses to come forward for recruitment advice, after gaining financial support from the North of Tyne Combined Authority (NTCA).

Sam, the founder of Morpeth based strategic recruitment company Talentheads, worked with Business Northumberland to gain North of Tyne funds for a digital marketing campaign to the value of £500 on Google Ads. Business owner Sam has over fifteen years’ experience in the field, working with businesses to help them grow through recruiting and retaining the very best talent for their company.

She said: “I’ve always loved working at a senior level and pushing businesses on, therefore for me supporting Business Owners was something I really wanted to get involved in. I’m hugely passionate about taking responsibility and adding value to a business’s talent strategy. If you need support to work through your businesses’ values, mission, and recruitment, get in touch.”

Talentheads was stablished during the pandemic in July last year. Looking to make a success of the business, Sam thought about how Talentheads could grow and develop further. Hearing about Business Northumberland through a friend and fellow business owner who had already received support from the programme, Sam reached out. Within three months of the business being born, Sam had registered Talentheads with Business Northumberland and got to work with the range of free workshops available through the programme.

Sam focused on subjects to support with the developing of her online presence, including content creation, managing website, email marketing and search engine optimisation (SEO). Business Northumberland provides support to small and medium enterprises across the North East who are looking to sustain and grow their business online. Talentheads is one of over 600 businesses registered to the programme which will now be running until 2023.

“The courses and sessions are genuinely amazing. They have kept me focused and allowed me to upskill. I feel I am a better Business Owner having come across the programmes support. I have gained the support of a fantastic coach, consultancy advice on my digital offering and attended numerous fantastic events through Business Northumberland. Pretty much most of my business strategy for 2021 has come from courses and support I have received through this source.”
