What Is Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO)?

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is a powerful process that allows employers to outsource or transfer all or part of their recruitment processes to an external provider. 

With RPO, the service provider takes on the responsibility of designing, implementing, and managing the entire recruitment process, from sourcing qualified candidates to onboarding new hires. 

By using RPO, employers benefit from increased efficiency, cost savings, and access to a broader talent pool.

Our Recruitment Outsourcing approach involves us working with clients to first understand their specific recruitment needs before developing and implementing a customised solution. 

This could be as simple as offering burst capacity for busy parts of the season or outsourcing their entire process from attraction through to onboarding.

Amberjack’s RPO Solutions

As experts whose core specialty is the business of recruiting, we are able to offer our clients services that in-house teams simply cannot match. These include:

Candidate Attraction

In a competitive market, identifying and engaging with the right candidates is an ongoing challenge. 

The majority of RPO providers will have a specialist Attraction and Employer Brand team who will be able to provide deep insight into your sector and provide help and guidance on the best way to reach your target audience. 

In Early Careers recruitment, this can often be a complex and resource-heavy part of the recruitment campaign and outsourcing hiring can provide huge efficiencies and cost savings. 

We particularly excel in graduate recruitment and identifying the perfect candidates.

Candidate Assessments

Volume hiring campaigns involve managing extremely high numbers of applications that need to be processed quickly and effectively.

RPO providers can offer support across the recruitment lifecycle from screening initial applications or CVs to reviewing video interview submissions and managing or facilitating assessment centres. 

Our fully trained assessors are experienced in selecting the most appropriate candidates and provide a fair and consistent way of assessing.

Candidate Management

While a massive influx of job candidates can be a good problem to have, it’s not always easy for in-house recruiting teams to manage. 

A Recruitment Process Outsourcing company like Amberjack can take on this burden, using our expertise and resources to ensure that all candidates are provided with the best possible experience. 

Whether it be responding to candidate queries and questions in a timely manner, creating tailored communications to improve engagement, or providing pre-assessment tech or coaching calls, we can act as an extension of your team.

Amberjack can offer you the tools and support you need to access, analyse and make informed decisions about your recruitment strategy.

Compliance & Risk Management

The legal landscape surrounding recruitment and hiring is constantly changing. 

Our RPO solutions can help you to navigate these changes and ensure that your process is compliant with all relevant laws and regulations.

Frequently Asked Questions

Have any questions about recruitment process outsourcing? Here are answers to some of the most common queries.

Students use social media to share their recruitment experiences with organisations and openly enquire if other applicants are aware of the status of their application.

Therefore, outsourcing to an EC provider ensures that your applicants are moved quickly, consistently and accurately through your recruitment process so that you secure high quality hires.

  • “We will lose control around quality of the candidates attending assessment centre”
  • “Our employer brand will be weakened”
  • “We can do it cheaper in-house”

The above are all statements that can usually come from employers. However, outsourced recruitment, done correctly, proves all these points incorrect.

  • Step 1
    Agree on a detailed statement of work, mutually agreeable commercials and a bespoke service level agreement.

  • Step 2
    We will initiate an implementation kick-off workshop. During the implementation workshop, the provider will share a high-level implementation timeline with key milestone dates. 

    Supporting this will be a detailed project plan.  You will agree on the frequency of meetings, create a RAID log and allocate key owners to each of the deliverables.

  • Step 3
    The Selection tool design will begin – the client will need to identify key stakeholders around the business who can attend a short job analysis meeting with a member of the outsourced provider’s assessment team. 

    Once the tools are designed the client will need to reengage the stakeholders to take part in an SME trial and after this an incumbent trial using existing graduates or apprentices who are already in post.

  • Step 4
    Technology build – your provider will ask you to join a number of requirements-gathering workshops so that the provider accurately captures all of your recruitment processes.

    Once built, the client will need to complete two rounds of user acceptance testing.

  • Step 5
    Working with the outsourced provider’s marketing team to provide collateral and agree on the attraction strategy.

  • Step 6
    Assessor briefing – providers welcome members of the client’s organisation to join the assessor briefing prior to going live. 

    This gives the client an opportunity to submerse the provider’s team with knowledge about the organisation.
  • 100% fulfilment of hiring demand
  • Year on year enhancements to client and candidate satisfaction
  • Delivery within an agreed campaign budget
  • Detailed recommendations to enable continuous improvement of the selection process
  • Benefit from the latest marketing, tech and assessment innovations
