We’re delighted to announce that we’ve been awarded a position on the new ESPO Strategic HR Services framework (3S) for HR Business Process Outsourcing.

Being part of the framework means we can now deliver our recruitment outsourcing services to public sector customers through Lot 7a – Recruitment Process Outsourcing and our award-winning suite of consultancy services through the new Lot 7g – HR Consultancy. 

As an approved supplier with a proven and successful track record of delivering strategic HR and recruitment services, the framework enables customers to partner with us in our recruitment outsourcing arrangements or HR Consultancy, quickly and simply.

Lot 7a – Recruitment Process Outsourcing will enable customers to engage with our full suite of Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) services, covering the full end-to-end permanent recruitment journey, this includes our Full, Modular and Project RPO services.  

Resource Solutions’ RPO solutions are designed to meet the bespoke needs of our clients and provide support and expertise at every stage of the talent acquisition lifecycle.

The new Lot 7g – HR Consultancy is for customers seeking a range of expert advice, support, and provision of service in relation to HR consultancy. Our HR Consultancy Practice is a recognised leader in HR optimisation, future of work, responsible business and diverse hiring. Our HR Consultancy Services can be purchased by new and existing framework users in bite-sized modules or larger-scale advisory projects, blending best-in-class knowledge and expertise with affordability. In addition, all users of ESPO are entitled to a free HR Trends Thought Leadership session.

Alongside our RPO solutions, our Workforce Consultancy services give public sector clients access to more and new skills, but without the need to add permanent headcount. The Workforce Consultancy model provides graduates, job changers and skilled professionals with accredited training courses to enhance and develop their careers.

Our Employed Consultancy Model means skilled professionals are employed permanently by us and then deployed into assignments at client sites. The "recruit, train, deploy" model sees resources train through our academy prior to deployment into entry-level roles. We take complete responsibility for the resource – from admin tasks and compliance, to supporting the management of their performance, objectives, and development pathway – so all the organisation needs to do is manage their workload.  

Jessica Holt, Head of Workforce Consultancy at Resource Solutions, comments: 

“To become an approved supplier means we can now take our best-in-practice RPO solutions and employment models to public sector clients who will benefit from significant cost savings compared to contingent workers, as well as guaranteed performance outputs. The Workforce Consultancy services have saved our clients an average of 15% on their contingent labour spend, so to be able to offer this level of cost efficiencies to public bodies on the ESPO Strategic HR Services framework (3S) is extremely exciting.”

“We’re proud to give companies access to a whole new realm of talent, while offering career pathways to ambitious candidates from a diverse range of educational and professional backgrounds.”

Tom Lakin, Director of Innovations at Resource Solutions, comments:  

“We’re honoured to be awarded a position on this new framework, giving the public sector the opportunity to access our services. Our HR Consultancy – specialising in diverse hiring, Assessment Advisory, Environment Social Governance (ESG) for HR, HR Tech Transformation & Implementation, Future of Work & Skills, People Analytics & Insight and HR Optimisation – enables organisations to action meaningful change and proactively optimise for the future of work.”
