For Clients

Talanta.co connects you with top management consultants and/or specialised experts for your important projects. We will gladly discuss with you how best our network of consultants can add value to your business.

Talanta.co has no permanent consultants or partners. We operate a very lean organisational structure and efficient processes. The resulting cost savings are passed on directly to consultants and clients, which creates a win-win situation.

1) We select consultants rigorously based on the CV and personal interviews including soft skills.

2) We provide consultants with best practices, especially for the project start and offer you, as a client, to fill out an interim feedback on the project progress at the end of each month.

3) At the end of each project there is an institutionalised feedback for the consultant that allows you to express any dissatisfaction and to have a structured discussion with the consultant. Part of this feedback in the form of a simple score will be transparently displayed on the profile of the respective consultant. Over time this mechanism leads to increased quality transparency on the Talanta.co marketplace and therefore support in the selection of consultants for future projects.

Confidentiality is one of the highest priorities for Talanta.co. We only share company information with consultants, to whom you have given your explicit consent and all consultants are contractually bound to absolute confidentiality. An additional, bilateral NDA between you and the consultant is also part of the contract. The confidentiality also works the other way round – so you also get the CV details and contact details only after the consultant agrees on it.

The registration and project briefing are completely free for clients. Only after successful recruitment will 20% of the consultant’s daily rate costs incur.

Talanta.co uses an intelligent matching algorithm to identify suitable consultants based on the project briefing. These are then vetted individually again. Thereafter two to three consultants are proposed for a project. The final decision for or against a consultant is of course up to you.

As a client you enter into a contract with Talanta.co (consisting of the terms and conditions and individual offerings for each project). A contract with each individual consultant is not always necessary. However, you can sign an additional bilateral Non-Disclosure Agreement with the consultant.

During the daily interaction and the monthly interim feedback, undesirable developments can be communicated and discussed at an early stage. If problems should still occur with a consultant, please contact your Personal Key Account Manager immediately. They will find a solution as soon as possible.

In addition to regular engagement with the project’s content as well as the consultant, there are three specific tasks in a project with Talanta.co, namely:

1) completing a monthly interim feedback to identify and to discuss any problems early

2) checking the activity tracker of the consultant and prompt payment of the monthly bill

3) filling out a final feedback for the consultants and Talanta.co

You pay Talanta.co.co and Talanta.co.co pays the consultants. To do this, you receive a statement from Talanta.co including the activity tracker of the consultant at the end of each month. You check the activity tracker, approve it and pay the outstanding amount. As soon as we receive your payment, the consultant will be paid by us. The payments will be made by electronic funds transfer.

We are confident you will be satisfied with the collaboration, and would like to work with the consultant again. In the post-project phase, it is necessary for Talanta.co to ensure exclusive rights to the collaboration, so if you and the consultant wish to work together again within 18 months of the end of the project, this must be done through Talanta.co. In this case, you of course will benefit from our efficient project handling processes.

Of course! You can employ the Talanta.co network consultants after a project ends as contract employees. We collect a very low commission of 15% of annual salary.

For Consultants

Absolutely not! Talanta.co is 100% free for consultants.

To become part of the Talanta.co network, you should hold at least an undergraduate degree and at least have 4 years’ experience in a high-class consulting environment (management consultancy, auditing or investment bank) or have 6 years of professional experience with a clear industrial and functional focus. An MBA from a top business school is an added advantage. Each profile is checked in a dedicated and discreet application process. Anomalies or false information in a CV will result in rejection of an application.

Certainly, you can! You can register with Talanta.co while you have a full-time job, provided there are no contractual restrictions with your current employer. We want to support you in your career professionally and give you an idea of the kind of projects waiting for you. It is necessary to have at least 10 hours per week (or more, depending on the project) for the project work.

Yes, you can. We are determined to bring real industry experts and top management consultants together. We believe that the blend of industry experience and consulting skills is the key for sustainable project success. However, you should at least have 6 years of professional experience with a clear industrial and functional focus.

We treat your data strictly confidential and use the personal information only for the internal matching process.

We have developed a matching algorithm based on personal qualifications (education, experience, role, industry and functional expertise), individual preferences (working hours, place of work, minimum project duration, daily rate, willingness to travel etc) and the project feedback which proposes suitable individuals or team combinations.

You get the information that we have proposed a project to you via email. After that you have two working days (or 4 working days if the client asks for submission of a mini brief) to decide whether you wish to accept the project and if need be, with which other consultants you want to work togethe

You have full control. We propose individual team members according to our matching algorithm. After that team members have the opportunity to contact each other. The final decision whether you accept the project and with which team members you would like to collaborate is always with you.

Yes. In order to ensure a smooth payment process, it is necessary to report the working hours with a brief description of activities through our user-friendly activity tracker. The client receives this information to view and must approve it.

You invoice Talanta.co directly. The bill is easily created when completing the activity tracker and sent to us directly. You do not need to make any manual extra effort.

Talanta.co will pay invoices within 30 days of the date of submission, subject to receipt of funds from the client, unless otherwise stated in your agreement. Payment will be made to you in the currency that we bill the client. If you do not have a bank that supports that currency, there are a number of online FX platforms available, allowing you to manage multiple currencies.

Should it come to disputes with the client or other team members during the project please inform Talanta.co as soon as possible. Talanta.co will then act as a mediator and support rapid resolution of the problem.

At the end of each project, a comprehensive feedback is obtained by Talanta.co. This includes feedback from your client and possibly also feedback from other team members. Individual feedback on particular projects is appreciated. You can find your overall rating for all projects in your personal profile.

Initially, none, because things happen. However, the highest quality of service for our clients is one of our core values. If you get bad reviews over two consecutive times or get bad reviews for more projects, we reserve the right to end your membership in the Talanta.co network.

Sure! You can use the Talanta.co marketplace to find an appropriate team or a suitable consultant for a project that you have acquired yourself. The separate use of feedback, contract and payment processes is also possible. Contact us – we’ll send you an offer.

We hope both you and the client are satisfied with the collaboration. In the post-project phase, it is necessary for Talanta.co to ensure exclusive rights to the collaboration, so if you and the client wish to work together again within 18 months of the end of the project, this must be done through Talanta.co.

Yes. Based on your project feedback and amount of sold project days you can qualify for the next following role. For example, you can “rise” from a consultant to Team Leader.

From time to time, you might receive project requests, which you can’t fulfil yourself. For such situations, we have the Talanta.co Recommendation Campaign. All you need to do is to connect us to the potential client and, if we win the project, you will receive a part of our margin as a reward. For more details just contact us.
