FreshMinds Talent Ltd. is a recruitment consultancy based in London and operates with businesses across the UK and Europe.

Clients range from public sector organisations to multinational blue chip corporations and FTSE 100 companies.[1]

History[edit]

Freshminds was founded as a research consultancy in 2000 by Caroline Plumb and Charlie Osmond – two Oxford graduates fresh from university. As well as conducting various projects and delivering insights for their clients, the company also pioneered a flexible working model for placing candidates into the client organisation to conduct the work on a short-term basis.

Shortly after inception, clients began asking to hire the candidates permanently, hence initiating the recruitment side of the business. In 2007, Freshminds split the recruitment and research consultancies into two separate, specialist operating units. After rebranding in 2018, the market research arm now operates under the name Decidedly as an insight and innovation consultancy.

Sectors[edit]

On the early career side, the business is split into two key focus areas operating on a permanent and short-term project basis. Permanent opportunities include graduate schemes and internships within financial services firms, as well as analytical and corporate roles across industry sectors at associate or consultant level.

For experienced and senior professionals, opportunities include permanent and short-term freelance strategy and commercial positions. The permanent team places individuals from Directors of Strategy to Chiefs of Staff, and the projects arm specialises in placing experienced consultants into strategic roles to provide specialist expertise and deliver successful project outcomes.
