United Biscuits appoints Hudson RPO for recruitment and employee value proposition activity
The three-year contract will see a specialist team from Hudson RPO operate from United Biscuit’s sites in Hayes and Liverpool. The Hudson team will provide a total recruitment services solution across all areas of the company’s operations on a global level, as well as providing support to the business on their executive search and selection programme.
Kate Shaw, United Biscuits director, HR Centre of Excellence from United Biscuits, said, “Having a RPO provider that is able to recruit into specialist roles is critical in ensuring we are able to secure the best talent for our business and align this to our future growth plans.
“Hudson RPO impressed us with their knowledge of the FMCG marketplace, as well as their capability to access global markets.”
As well as the RPO activity, the Hudson team will also assist in the development of the firm’s employee value proposition and the management of their graduate recruitment campaign, which are becoming increasingly important as businesses look to secure talent in line with their growth strategies.
Darren Lancaster, European Head of Hudson RPO, said, “This is an exciting opportunity to work with a leading FMCG brand. Not only will we be able to demonstrate our skill in the RPO market, but we will also be able to assist the business in ensuring they have a value proposition that will resonate with employees of the future. Creating a strong proposition will be critical in securing talent as businesses look to attract the very best candidates in a competitive marketplace.”
