Outsourcing is still front and centre for many corporations. The public sector outsources major functions to specialised and efficient service providers. With one main outsourced function, being recruitment.
Recruitment refers to the overall process of attracting, shortlisting and appointing suitable candidates. Often for specific job roles within an organisation.
There are many reasons why an organisation may choose to outsource recruitment. The most common reasons include:
The process will start with a recruitment tender opportunity, published by a public sector organisation. This will then generate competing offers to meet the specific requirements. These will be outlined in the contract notice.
The advantage of public sector tenders is that no matter how small your recruitment business, there is always an opportunity to supply the government.
There are so many Recruitment agencies in the market currently. We know you will feel a bit ‘lost in the crowd’. It is so important to stand out when tendering for contracts.
The real key to standing out is understanding what sets you apart from your competitors.
So, what can you do to exceed expectations?
We have worked on many Recruitment Tenders and have won a considerable amount.
Due to this extensive experience, we have detected a pattern in quality questions.
When wanting to outsource the recruitment function, buyers tend to ask very similar questions. Likewise, they have comparable expectations.
Questions to look out for are:
Buyers want to know what processes you have in place, in order to get the job done. They need to know what internal systems you use, as this all affects the quality of the service you deliver. TOP TIPS:
The buyer wants to know about your recruitment tactics. How do you stay up to date with current trends in the market? And how your current network will allow you to provide candidates, especially when given short notice. TOP TIPS:
How will you build a successful strategic relationship with the buyer? They want to know your processes for making all communications transparent. What plans do you have in place to ensure constant, sufficient resources? TOP TIPS:
Recruitment and the supply of staff is something that will be constantly sought after by a range of companies. Especially by the public sector. This is due to not having the time nor capacity to complete recruitment tasks in-house.
Due to our extensive knowledge of recruitment tenders, we know exactly what the public sector looks for. Likewise, the questions they like to ask. Here are our top tips for winning these tenders:
It is important to read through and fully understand specification requirements. It is crucial that you comprehend exactly what the questions are asking you. You need to ask yourself a question. Can you commit to this contract?
Public sector buyers require detailed and thorough explanations. As well as hard evidence. They want to know HOW you are going to deliver this contract.
Providing relevant evidence and case studies is crucial. The right testimonial can overcome scepticism and create credibility.
How do you intend to fulfil the contract? In other words, do you have appropriate resources? How will you meet ongoing demand?
It is important to state what policies your recruitment agency have in place. How do you implement them?
