The About Talent team is a network of home-based research and coaching associates who have all built their experience in the "top five" executive search firms and have strong networks across a range of industry sectors and functions. We are all driven by the same goal of wanting to deliver oustanding results for our clients, and share common values of integrity, honesty, quality and hard work. 

We care about our clients, our candidates, and our community.

Belinda Raitt, Founder and Managing Director
Belinda Raitt
Belinda has over 15 years' experience in executive search, learning and development, leadership assessment and coaching. She has worked with three of the top five executive search firms and brings considerable experience in senior executive and Board level search, particularly in IT, media, telecoms, retail and consumer. She has established her reputation in the market through quality of delivery and a personal approach to candidate and client management. Having spent much of her career identifying the skills that make talented leaders, Belinda decided in 2011 to train as a coach so that she could help leaders develop those capabilities for themselves. She has a Masters in Psychology from the University of Edinburgh and is a member of the International Coaching Federation, working towards ACC accreditation.

As well as supporting women in business, Belinda has a particular interest in entrepreneurship and family/founder-owned businesses and volunteers as a mentor for young entrepreneurs with the Kent Foundation. She is an area Board member for Young Enterprise and also volunteers with The Poppy Factory, a charity that helps ex-Service men and women back into employment.

Outside work, she is an active supporter of her local community and spends most weekends drumming across Kent with a local samba band or pottering in the garden, despite not seeming to have inherited the family's green-fingered gene! A few nights a month she volunteers as a 'bloodrunner' for Serv, delivering emergency blood to hospitals across Kent.
