Recruitment Process Outsourcing in the East Midlands

The Harper Recruitment Group provides specialised recruitment services and is a trusted partner to some of the region’s largest employers.

RPO is in our DNA and has been for over three decades.

Before a time when RPO (Recruitment Process Outsourcing) had a label, Harpers has been offering strategic staffing solutions by tailoring our service provision to the exact needs of our clients. Through providing a scalable, cost-effective and uniquely positioned partnership, we enable our clients to outsource part or all of their recruitment requirements - in turn, driving down the costs of hiring and ensuring that the staffing needs of the business are met and maintained and that teams have the right people in the right place when they need them.

The recruitment industry RPO service continues to evolve today with innovative developments in all areas, from talent acquisition and selection to onboarding and dynamic pricing. Harpers ensures that its RPO services stay at the cutting edge of these innovations, and its service levels are second to none.

So, what is the RPO model?

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) means partnering with a team of external recruitment specialists who support you with all or a part of your company’s ongoing staffing needs. This could be focusing on a specific project or area of the organisation, or assisting your HR team with all new hiring requirements. It is more commonly focused towards higher-volume need environments or specialist skill set projects. However, it also provides smaller/medium-sized organisations that do not have an in-house recruitment/talent acquisition team access to this expensive resource for a scalable cost.

Why choose RPO?

Time – From sourcing candidates, pre-screening, interviews, vetting and onboarding, recruitment takes up a lot of a company's vital time. By outsourcing these processes to our expert team of Consultants, we can get you the quality candidates you need in place faster and free up critical time for you and your colleagues.

Cost – by outsourcing your processes and eliminating the need for the added cost of additional internal HR/TA professionals or multiple recruitment agencies, we can help you keep costs down while still getting the desired results you need.

Results – our Recruitment Consultants make sure they take the time to understand your unique priorities and requirements fully, and by learning your process and projects inside out, we can source the best-fit candidates for you, meeting and exceeding your expectations, on time, every time.

Is RPO right for you?

When thinking of moving to an RPO mode, you need to consider if it would benefit you and your organisation by asking the following questions:

  • Are you paying too much for hires in a multiple recruitment agencies scenario?
  • Attrition costs; are you spending too much time and money replacing staff?
  • Is your senior team spending too much time managing the agency process, reviewing high volumes of CVs, and interviewing ill-qualified candidates?
  • Do you believe your employer brand, market presence and recruitment method could bring you better quality of candidates?

If you have answered "yes" to any of the questions above, then RPO could be the solution that reduces your costs, saves you time, and delivers you the best talent – and would also offer a solution to the attrition of new starters.
