About us

The GroupM Talent Team was set up in 2008 to drive employer brand excellence, we attract and engage the best people for our group of companies, whilst minimising external recruitment spend. The team leads the recruitment journey across Mediacom, Wavemaker, Mindshare, m/SIX and GroupM. Attracting the best talent means a great deal to us. Team members need to pioneer, champion and challenge mediocrity looking for the best solutions to the ever-changing face of recruitment. We are defining a talent program that is in the best in its class within the media industry. Members of our team need to have a real passion for helping drive this program to greater gains. Our ambition is to own the definition of what a talent acquisition function can and should do.
