A Talent Pool is a set of candidates that have already applied for vacancies created by you or might apply in the future as they have already worked for similar companies to yours / worked in the same industry as yours.

Using a private Talent Pool can be very beneficial and provide you with some detailed insights into your Talent source.

Employers have Talent Pools assigned to their accounts. For example all employers will have the Elevate Open Market Talent pool (public Talent Pool) assigned to their accounts. Employers can also have their own private Talent Pools. 

If you wish to create and assign a Private Talent Pool to your account, please contact Elevate Support by email on support@elevatedirect.com or using the chat function from the bottom-right corner of your screen
