Search Consultancy has been successful in achieving a place on the Buying Solutions framework for the provision of non-medical, non-clinical, temporary and fixed term staff to the NHS and public sector bodies in England and Wales. This is excellent news and demonstrates the company's continued success in this sector despite the recession.
The Framework Agreement is managed by Buying Solutions, an Executive Agency of the Office of Government Commerce in the Treasury, and the award followed a successful tender process which saw the company picking up accreditation as both an Employment Business and Employment Agency.
This is great news for the NHS and public sector as a whole as it ultimately means a wider choice of suppliers which leads to more competitive pricing.
Grahame Caswell, CEO of Search Consultancy said, The NHS and public sector organisations are facing significant funding challenges in the year ahead and it is crucial that they adopt strategies which will deliver economies of scale. This should be positive news for those suppliers who have been awarded to the framework as the NHS and public sector organisations are forced to take tough decisions on how they can best allocate scarce resources. As a large supplier, covering all key recruitment areas, we are able to offer a fast, UK-wide service while keeping costs down. It is more important than ever for the all public sector bodies to deliver an efficient service focused on maintaining high quality standards."
