LeSoCo signs deal with Morgan Hunt
Morgan Hunt has been awarded the managed service contract for LeSoCo – one of the most hotly contested contracts in the further education sector, following a successful tender.
LeSoCo, formed in August 2012 following the merger of Lewisham College and Southwark College - is one of the largest further education colleges in the UK with over 15,000 enrolled students.
Morgan Hunt had been working with both Lewisham College and Southwark College for seven years prior to LeSoCo being formed. During that time a strong partnership with both colleges was established not only through consistently fulfilling each college’s recruitment needs but by building a long-term relationship with the same account manager from day one – highlighting Morgan Hunt’s dedication to both colleges.
More recently Morgan Hunt facilitated collaboration between its charity partner, the Dame Kelly Holmes Legacy Trust and LeSoCo, introducing both parties in 2011. LeSoCo supported a DKH Legacy Trust Get on Track event which engaged and inspired young adults drawn specifically from the Lewisham area. The 13 week course culminated in an awards ceremony, held at the college, to recognise the success of the young adults involved in the programme.
This contract represents the largest further education Managed Service to be tendered for the academic year 2013/14 for all temporary recruitment (academic and business support) and provides a great opportunity to further strengthen Morgan Hunt’s relationship with LeSoCo and add greater value to its long-standing client.
As part of the Managed Service offering, LeSoCo will also benefit from the use of Morgan Hunt’s exclusive Greenroom technology platform, a bespoke online recruitment tool to further streamline the recruitment process for increased efficiency, cost and quality management.
Rupert Fordham, Chairman, Morgan Hunt said:
“This contract win is terrific news that not only truly cements our relationship with our long-standing client, LeSoCo but also confirms Morgan Hunt as the leading player in the FE sector in the south east, and one of the main players nationally. We look forward to adding even greater value to this successful partnership".
Maxine Room, Principal, LeSoCo said:
“We have worked with Morgan Hunt for several years now and are continually impressed with the team’s commitment to delivering quality candidates to meet our recruitment needs and the added-value they provide to the college. We awarded the Managed Service contract to Morgan Hunt as for us the strong partnership approach coupled with the suitability of the tailored Greenroom system to help streamline the recruitment process, are second to none.”
