HCDA Talent Empowerment Services (TES)

Building connections that inspire, prompt and guide people through meaningful career moments. 

Talent Empowerment Services (TES) is a pioneering startup dedicated to revolutionising the transition through key career moments.


Career moments involve the connection of two elements: someone has defined a role or job that they need doing, and someone who has an ambition, interest and aptitude to bring value in that work area. These two elements need to come together, connect and combine. But rather than being fixed and set in stone, these elements can shift and adapt as a result of that connection. Today, many big organisations are recruiting talent in a transactional and broken way. With the increasingly dynamic nature of work today, the value will be created in these connections. We believe that rather than these connections being spontaneous and serendipitous, there is value in preparing for and designing these interactions. By doing this, the connection and conversation is balanced, adult and will achieve far better outcomes for all parties involved.


In TES, we help people do this.

Our Talent Lab empowers graduates to take control of their career decisions, explore and understand their potential, and thrive in today's complex and dynamic world of work. What sets TES apart is our commitment to continuous learning and our community; graduates remain part of our vibrant community indefinitely, providing ongoing support and networking opportunities throughout their careers. With a focus on self-determination, personal growth, relationships, social connection, and job crafting, TES is redefining how we support and equip graduate to navigate this early career moment successfully.


Our community is a cornerstone of Talent Empowerment Services (TES), providing a lasting network for students and graduates to stay connected even after completing the program. We fosters continuous interaction, both online and face to face, allowing members to share experiences, seek advice, and support one another as they progress in their careers. Graduates can connect with industry mentors through one-on-one sessions via video call, or in-person meetings, offering valuable guidance to help them further develop their skills throughout their employment journey. Additionally, the community keeps everyone informed about upcoming events and workshops, ensuring members have ongoing access to learning opportunities and professional growth.
