Frequently Asked Questions

  • Why should I register?

    GatedTalent is your senior talent pool. Featuring profiles created by the executives themselves and – in many cases – introduced by our existing search firm clients, it is a huge resource for any executive recruiter looking to identify senior level executive candidates. Once you have a connection with an executive, you will continue to benefit from his or her updates, as they happen. In terms of compliance, you will also benefit from independent tracking of consent in regions where privacy rules, such as GDPR, are enforced.

  • OK, so how do I use it?

    GatedTalent is currently in Beta. Between September 2017 and December 31st 2017, we expect to send out over 1,000,000 invitations to many of the world’s senior executives. These invitations are sent by search firms but managed by us. When an executive responds, he or she will be invited to create a profile sharing biographical, remuneration and aspirational information. Every executive who creates a profile as a result of such an introduction earns a credit for the recruiter – which can be used to make a connection request to another executive on the platform.

    Any executive recruiter – at a search firm or an in-house team – can send invitations through the platform. However, during our beta period preference is being given to certain types of firms. Contact us here if you’d like to get involved.
    From January 1st, 2018 the platform will be opened up. From this stage, you’ll be able to send invitations through the platform or simply use it as a research tool.

  • I understand this has something to do with FileFinder / Dillistone Systems. Can you give me more details on this?

    GatedTalent is a wholly owned subsidiary of Dillistone Group Plc, the parent company of Dillistone Systems – developers of the FileFinder recruitment software CRM. Although you do not need to use FileFinder to use GatedTalent, FileFinder users do benefit from tighter integration. For example, if you have connections with executives on GatedTalent and they change their contact numbers, your FileFinder database will be updated automatically. If you are using an alternative CRM, you’ll need to log into GatedTalent through the web browser and will have to update your CRM separately. We are developing an API to allow other platforms to connect to GatedTalent but this is not currently available.

  • How does this help with my GDPR / Privacy / Compliancy Management?

    We support privacy notices where Legitimate Interest is used as lawful basis for processing data. You will benefit from an independent audit trail documenting that these have been sent in accordance with GDPR.Where consent is used, we track how and when this was provided. To remain compliant, candidates must be given the choice to withdraw consent and they can do this through GatedTalent. If this happens we will send you a note informing you. It will then be your responsibility as the data controller to ensure you remove any data you store locally.
