  • Recruitment process outsourcing


  • We filled 100 per cent of the required roles 

  • We provided eight team managers from three assessment centres 

  • Quality candidates were sourced and provided ahead of the busy festive season 

The challenge: 

With their Christmas peak season fast approaching, our client - a leading UK retailer- required managerial and Christmas staff with immediate effect. 

In the build up to Christmas they approached Reed Talent Solutions to support them to source team managers at their West Yorkshire site. 

Due to the close proximity to their busiest trading period, need was critical in order for our client to meet their business goals.  

The solution: 

Candidates were submitted to three assessment centres over a three-week period, with our understanding of the industry enabling us to provide the best talent at short notice. 

We analysed the requirements of the roles, as well as our client’s values and business culture in order to design a bespoke recruitment process managed through the tailor-made platform of our applicant tracing system.  

This solution relied on our ability to provide experienced support for a defined time period. 

We provided a bespoke recruitment process, using our knowledge of the client and our expertise to refine this process. 

Detailed reports were created and analysed by our RPO team, enabling us to create and adapt a proactive approach. 

The results: 

We filled 100 per cent of the roles required by our client, meaning they were able to work at full capacity during the festive season. 

Throughout the campaign we screened over 200 applicants, ensuring a strong conversion rate and in turn meeting their requirements. 

Our quick turnaround time and the calibre of our candidates were praised by the retailer, and we received positive feedback for our overall performance.
