Welcome Richard Kennedy
Please welcome Richard to the Talentforce team.
A relationship focussed and results driven recruitment professional and business leader. I believe in creating long-term relationships based on an ethical and honest approach with colleagues and clients alike.
I enjoyed a varied and successful eight years within a leading international recruitment organisation both in Sydney and throughout the UK. Industry experience spanned Financial Services, Commence, Government and Not for Profit within a variety of strategic leadership roles. I learned that business is about people, culture and a focus on common goals, whilst having fun and celebrating success along the way.
Having played an active role in recruiting Senior Management, project and program focussed and IT change managers, I was keen to become involved in business evolution and transformation. This was a catalyst for my shift to Saas based technologies and ultimately Talentforce. Talentforce offers a unique proposition of community and social recruitment, playing a highly active part in the Salesforce ecosystem, this presented a great challenge and an interesting opportunity, which I recently grasped with both hands.
I love good conversation, learning through sharing experience and knowledge, and working collaboratively to form strong relationships based on mutual respect and understanding whilst helping others to achieve their goals. I have found this is a mantra shared with my new colleagues.
At Talentforce, I am responsible for the strategic management and growth of the business, identifying new markets and opportunities to work with our community in new, innovative ways. I also play an active recruitment role, focussing on SaaS Sales, Marketing Automation and Community Management.
Some of the positions I’ll focus upon include:
- Community Managers
- Social Campaign Consultants
- Cloud / SaaS Sales Executives
- Cloud / SaaS Account Executives (AE’s)
- SaaS Business Development Managers (BDM’s)
- Social Enterprise Consultants
- Automated Marketing Specialists
- Eloqua / Exact Target / Salesforce / Marketo / Dashcord / Campaign Monitor
Thanks to the team, and to all the individuals within the community I have met to date for the warm welcome and for sharing their knowledge and experience so openly. I am keen to continue to grow my network within the Marketing Automation space therefore please do not hesitate to contact me if you are hiring contractors/employees, actively on the market, thinking of a change or just feel like a chat.
I love innovation, catching a wave & shredding the slopes.
