Welcome to the Talisman Group – a recruitment company that is about service and commitment – the way it used to be.

The Talisman Group was founded in 2009 by Ian Hadfield who for five years was Managing Director of the Brooklyn Group.

Ian's background spans 25 years experience of creating and developing, and managing recruitment organisations in the UK, US and Australia that focus the traditional values of quality, ethics, and professionalism.

Our consultants are amongst the finest recruitment professionals that Ian has met during his recruitment career.

Each consultant is not only a specialist in his/her field with an average of at least ten years success and experience but they also share Ian's values and integrity.

More Services

Executive Recruitment

At the Talisman Group we focus on the recruitment of executive level talent on behalf of our clients - often filling roles that others fail to fill.

Executive Search

Too often contingency recruitment solutions fail to locate key talent even at middle management levels. At Talisman we specialise in providing a full Executive Search capability at salary levels between $100-500,000. Often this is the only way to rapidly identify and recruit key individuals who have the right skill set but who are not actively on the recruitment marketplace.

Executive Recruitment Program Management

Often when there is a requirement to recruit a high volume of executive level staff the most effective solution is to set up a recruitment program in partnership with our client involving the organisation of both internal and external recruitment resources to provide the most effective solution.


At Talisman we have the ability to create training programs for a client's internal recruitment staff allowing them not only to be more effective in their own right but also when partnering with the Talisman Group to better satisfy the needs of a comprehensive Executive Recruitment program.
