Amberjack’s RPO Solutions

We are not just another external company, we are your partner in fulfilling the potential of your business. With our constant investment in the global RPO market, we are able to provide you with the tools to adapt in an ever-changing climate.

As experts whose core speciality is recruiting, we can offer our clients in-depth RPO knowledge that in-house teams cannot match. These include:

Candidate Attraction

In a competitive market, identifying and engaging with suitable candidates is an ongoing challenge when it comes to talent acquisition.

Most RPO providers will have a specialist Attraction and Employer Brand team who can provide deep insight into your sector and help and guide you 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 excel in graduate recruitment and identifying the perfect candidates for the job.

Candidate Assessments

Volume hiring campaigns involve managing many applications that must be processed quickly and effectively.

RPO companies like Amberjack 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 assessment method.

Candidate Management

While a massive influx of job candidates can be an excellent problem, it can be challenging for in-house recruiting teams to manage.

Our RPO solutions can handle this burden, using our expertise and resources to ensure all candidates have the best possible experience.

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

Reasons To Outsource Recruitment

Many businesses across various sectors frequently opt for RPO services to reap the benefits of hiring young talent with high potential.

Below are several compelling reasons to contemplate using an RPO provider:

Stress-Free Recruitment

The recruitment process can be intimidating, especially for organisations needing a well-established HR division.

Devoting time to post job ads, review CVs, and engage with potential candidates can be challenging.

RPO offers a solution to alleviate the burden of hiring by handling administrative tasks on your behalf.

By doing so, you can focus on managing your business and entrust the task of finding skilled individuals to be experts in the field.

Business Differentiation

In modern times, young professionals are increasingly aware that employers seek potential talent.

Consequently, they approach their job decisions with great care and consideration. They seek businesses that offer something unique that differentiates them from their peers.

By identifying candidates through RPO, businesses can set themselves apart from other employers by implementing efficient and professional procedures.

This can positively impact and foster enthusiasm among candidates for working with the organisation.

An Efficient Recruitment Process

An RPO company possesses in-depth expertise in the hiring process and are well-versed in the most effective avenues for sourcing young talent.

Their knowledge enables businesses to avoid potential pitfalls, such as advertising jobs in inappropriate locations or utilising inadequate assessment tools.

Access To A Wider Range Of Candidates

Amberjack’s RPO services offer organisations access to diverse early career talent, encompassing individuals from various backgrounds and promoting neurodiversity.

This gives employers a valuable opportunity to identify potential candidates they might have yet to be able to access through other means.

Frequently Asked Questions

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

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

With RPO, the service provider is responsible for designing, implementing, and managing the entire recruitment process, from sourcing qualified candidates to onboarding new hires.

Through the utilisation of RPO providers, employers gain advantages such as heightened efficiency, reduced costs, and expanded access to a more extensive talent reservoir. It also contributes to an enhanced candidate experience, preventing any potential reneges.

Our approach to RPO involves working with clients to 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 company recruitment from attraction to onboarding.

For more information, check out our blog “What is RPO?

  • “We will lose control around the quality of the candidates attending the 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

Reach a consensus on a comprehensive scope of work, establish mutually acceptable financial terms, and create a tailor-made service level agreement.

  • Step 2

We will commence with an introductory implementation workshop. The provider will present a broad outline of the implementation timeline, highlighting key milestone dates during this session.

Underpinning this will be an intricate project blueprint. You will determine the frequency of meetings, establish a RAID log, and assign primary owners to each deliverable.

  • Step 3

The design phase for the Selection tool will commence – the client will be required to pinpoint essential stakeholders across the organisation who can participate in a brief job analysis session alongside a member of the assessment team from the external provider. 

After the tools have been devised, the client should once again involve the stakeholders for participation in a trial by subject matter experts (SMEs), followed by a trial involving incumbents, including existing graduates or apprentices in their current roles.

  • Step 4

Technology development phase – your provider will request participation in workshops to gather requirements, ensuring accurate capture of all your recruitment procedures.

Following the finalisation of the technology development, the client must perform two cycles of user acceptance testing.

  • Step 5

Collaborating with the marketing team of the external provider to furnish promotional materials and establish a consensus on the attraction strategy.

  • Step 6

Assessor orientation – the providers invite members of the client’s organisation to participate in the assessor briefing before the official launch.

This allows the client to submerse the provider’s team with knowledge about the organisation.

  • 100% fulfilment of hiring demand
  • Continual improvements in both client and candidate satisfaction year after year.
  • Execution within a predefined budget for the campaign.
  • Comprehensive suggestions to facilitate the ongoing enhancement of the selection process.
  • Benefit from the latest marketing, tech and assessment innovations
