FIRST WESSEX HOUSING GROUP ANNOUNCES RIGHT4STAFF AS RECRUITMENT PARTNER
Following a competitive tender, the First Wessex Housing Group (FW), one of the largest providers of social housing in Hampshire, has awarded leading independent recruitment specialist right4staff a 2 year contract to supply permanent and temporary office staff. FW previously used a number of agencies on an ad hoc basis and this move is designed to bring financial savings through economies of scale and a consistent, quality service that can be measured together with improved best practice.
The contract covers all parts of the First Wessex Group.
A high percentage of the contract is expected to involve permanent recruitment and right4staff will also be supporting the First Wessex Group HR team on special projects throughout next year including salary surveys.
The day to day running of the contract will be undertaken by an account team based in the right4staff Portsmouth branch who will co-ordinate all FW vacancies across the right4staff branches in Hampshire including Farnborough & Eastleigh.
Commenting on the new contract Melissa Carslake, Managing Director (South) at right4staff said, This contract win demonstrates our ability to listen to the client and put forward a solution that is both innovative and cost effective. We are very excited to be working with FWHG who are firmly committed to a true partnership approach.
Kevin Moon, HR Business Partner at FWHG said: At FW we are committed to working with our customers to develop communities to be proud of and part of that is choosing partners that share our vision and values and help make them a reality. From the outset Right4staff proved they had a true understanding of our business requirements and we were very impressed with their team. Their solution provides us with full transparency and high levels of management information. We have no doubt that moving forward we will benefit greatly from working with such a professional organisation.
