Meet Daniel Goldstein, the visionary founder of Elements Talent Consultancy, as he revolutionizes the recruitment industry and secures a spot as a finalist at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2023.

Daniel Goldstein founded Elements Talent Consultancy in 2009 with a vision to transform the recruitment industry. Elements are pioneers of Embedded Talent Consultancy, embedding their best-in-class talent acquisition consultants within world-leading organizations to solve complex hiring challenges.

Goldstein’s entrepreneurial journey was inspired by his family’s long history of building successful businesses from the ground up. After gaining experience in recruitment, Goldstein identified significant shortcomings in the industry, including a lack of innovation, professionalism, and alignment with company culture. This realization sparked his “lightbulb moment” and motivated him to establish Elements, redefining talent acquisition with a new model.

Elements’ impact on the recruitment industry has been Goldstein’s most significant achievement. Not only has this impact earned Elements recognition, but it has also allowed Goldstein to share insights through publications and conferences. Shortlisted as ‘Entrepreneur of the Year’ in 2015 was an early milestone, but helping Elements rank 4th in ‘Great Place to Work 2023’ demonstrates their growth and values. Celebrating the change Elements brings to recruitment has been incredibly rewarding for Goldstein.   

Looking ahead, Elements has outlined an ambitious growth strategy, including expanding into new services like talent acquisition advisory, data and insights, and temporary workforce solutions. With such innovations, Elements anticipates taking their Embedded Talent Acquisition model to the next level.

Daniel Goldstein and Elements Talent Consultancy are finalists at the Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2023, the UK’s premier awards celebrating entrepreneurial excellence.
