What is RPO/Total Talent Acquisition?

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) means completely or partially outsourcing your permanent recruitment services to an external recruitment service provider. This can span everything from workforce planning and talent mapping, through to support with talent attraction and employer branding. Our RPO solutions include a dedicated, expert-led delivery team and specialist technology to optimise processes. We simplify and streamline. Total Talent Acquisition is an extension of RPO and integrates both RPO and MSP into a single, outsourced solution. Covering the entire talent lifecycle for permanent and temporary hires, our TTA solutions offer a holistic, aerial view of the entire resourcing landscape. Which makes it easier for you to identify patterns, strategise and plan ahead.

Is RPO/Total Talent Acquisition right for me?

If you are looking for a single source for your permanent recruitment and regularly need permanent hires, RPO may be right for you. If this is also true for your contingent recruitment – or you have a medium to large sized contingent population – consider TTA. RPO/TTA is best for businesses that are looking for a long-term talent solution that will improve talent attraction and retention while also enhancing customer and candidate experience. Do you have a short-time spike in hiring or a campaign? We recommend Project Recruitment.

Case Study | RPO & TTA

RPO Case Study

A life and pensions company was looking for a recruitment process that would drive efficiency, deliver exceptional candidate experience and demonstrate quality. We introduced a multi-discipline, hybrid RPO. In addition to streamlining the process and implementing best practice, we also went beyond traditional recruitment, with initiatives including training on candidate experience, developing diversity and inclusion agendas and a website refresh. The results, including almost halving time-to-hire, delivering over £1 million in cost savings in 2018 alone and achieving a 93% fill rate in IT – speak for themselves. 


RPO Case Study

A financial services business needed an RPO provider that could support them through their significant digital transformation and innovation strategy. Our onsite team of 15, including a dedicated MI analyst and marketing executive, have raised the bar for service excellence. Despite a global pandemic, in our first quarter of delivery, we made 142 placements with 93% direct hires. We reduced time-to-offer by 27% by streamlining the service, and boosted offer acceptance to 97% with strong candidate attraction and control. Our marketing team has also been pivotal to placing the client at the forefront of the market – running events, creating content and building networks for the future. The client is now a magnet for tech talent and on target for an exciting digital journey.
