Recruitment Process Outsourcing

Whatever your permanent recruitment needs, we have the solution. 

Experience you can trust

Our Recruitment Process Outsourcing (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. 

Although our solutions are tailored to your individual needs, they each fall into one of four categories.


What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing?

RPO is when a company transfers all or part of its permanent recruitment to an external provider.

An RPO provider can act as an extension of a company’s HR or Resourcing function, sitting on site with the client providing a holistic hiring solution. An RPO provider can deliver the necessary staff, technology, and methodology needed to fulfil a client’s recruitment requirements.

Our recruitment outsourcing solutions can be delivered on-site through a team of recruiters that act as an extension of the client’s talent acquisition team, off-site, or through a combination of both, across country-aligned, multi-regional or global remits.

What is the difference between RPO providers vs. traditional staffing agencies?

The scope of traditional recruitment firms will be to source and place the candidate in the required role. By contrast, an RPO provider takes ownership of the design and execution of the recruitment process, which includes services such as:

Talent engagement

Candidate management

Hiring manager engagement

Recruitment analytics support

Workforce planning

Pre-employment screening

Strategic sourcing

Compliance and risk management

Employer brand consultation

Vendor partnering

Supply chain management

Early careers/ graduate recruitment

Benefits of enlisting an experienced RPO provider

Access to the right talent, at the right time
Reducing cost per hire and agency spend
Reduce time-to-hire
Improved candidate experience
Adherence to compliance and regulatory requirements
Access to real-time data and reporting

Healthcare client meets unprecedented labour demand during coronavirus pandemic

The challenge

At the height of the Covid-19 crisis, one of our healthcare clients urgently needed to recruit and onboard thousands of people to fill various roles – from healthcare professionals to administrative support staff. The surge in demand was unprecedented, with temporary field hospitals being built in record time, and huge increases in phone enquiries to medical helplines.  

Our solution

We delivered two large-scale hiring projects to meet demand, each deployed within 48 hours. We briefed and mobilised a large team of recruitment professionals and delivered:

  • 75+ Account team working 12-hour shifts
  • 7 days/week assessing applications, compliance and PES
  • 55+ Account team undertaking process management, video interviews, query response and batch actions


Within just a few weeks, we helped fill 600,000 shifts, process more than 50,000 expressions of interest, get over 17,500 healthcare professionals to work and support 45 new healthcare trusts.
