The investment

Talmix is led by a young, dynamic and entrepreneurial management team with a strong track record of digital experience. Using a combination of technology and human insight the Talmix platform connects independent consultants to businesses worldwide seeking swift, cost effective consultancy solutions. In just a few short steps, companies of all sizes can easily access high quality consultants offering a wide range of skill sets and sector expertise. To date, Talmix has registered and vetted more than 25,000 consultants across 132 countries and has matched talent to more than £40m worth of consultancy projects. Its mission is to unlock the power of the independent workforce and transform the way companies work. Tamweel was introduced to Talmix by one of its longstanding private equity relationships.

The market, the challenges, the opportunity

The global consultancy industry is a highly fragmented market worth £120bn per annum. The traditional process of identifying, evaluating and on boarding consultants for ad-hoc assignments is lengthy, expensive and often limited to large projects. Matching the best independent consultants with the right projects is an inefficient process in need of a solution. The way consultants work is also changing, with many HR functions adjusting their talent acquisition strategies around the rise of the portfolio career, hiring a mix of people on an affordable and ad hoc basis. Talmix combines smart technology and human insight to solve these challenges and capitalise on these trends. It has been the subject of significant growth and has established an impressive client base consisting of 8 of the top 10 global private equity firms, 2 of the top 3 management consultancies and many Fortune 500 companies. These include familiar names such as KKR, Apax, CVC, 3i, Lyceum, BCG, OC&C, McKinsey, General Motors, Honeywell, Travelex as well as many others across the investment, consultancy and corporate communities.

How Tamweel will help

Tamweel provided funding alongside MMC Ventures and Piton Capital, two well established UK investors. This investment will be used to fuel further growth via additional recruitment, ongoing innovation and business development. In addition, Tamweel will support the business in accessing new geographic markets across the Middle East and Africa as well as unlocking opportunities from its private equity network and their portfolio companies.

Daniel Callaghan, CEO of Talmix commented: “We believe that with the right mix of talent, anything is possible. We want to give companies the expertise and experience of a big consultancy by connecting to this world of talent, in a fast, agile way and without paying for overheads. We already have a global footprint that has seen our consultants deliver projects on every continent, and this investment is going to fast track our ability to deliver more. We are delighted with Tamweel’s involvement and its strategic importance in strengthening relations across MENA.”

Ali Aneizi, Tamweel Capital, commented: “Daniel and his team have impressed us with the platform they have built, the clients they service, the consultants they have registered and the repeat business they have generated. We believe Talmix is poised for a period of sustained transformational growth and we look forward to supporting them in their journey ahead. ”
