New City College has awarded an exclusive managed service recruitment provision to Morgan Hunt.
East London’s largest college group serves young people and adults from diverse communities with an impressive range of courses and qualifications. With further growth on the horizon, New City College required a new staffing solution to manage the attraction and retention of staff to continue to deliver outstanding student outcomes.
Through the CPC Framework, the HR team at New City College looked to appoint a public sector staffing company that could focus on the quality provision of teaching staff and the operational professionals working with over 12,000 students. This new outsourced recruitment model will be performed by Morgan Hunt.
Luke O’Neill, divisional director, education and training at Morgan Hunt, explained, “Managed Service recruitment technology allows us to work with specialist suppliers where necessary but keep rates at agreed levels and use management information to inform an employer’s candidate attraction strategies and forecast demand from one place.
“Recruiting temporary and permanent staff across a College group with a number of different campuses and keeping costs controlled but quality high, was a key focus for New City College. The college will be using an online recruitment portal; Greenroom V5 to manage the compliance, time, attendance and invoicing for their staff all in one online system, all of which allows for transparent and immediate reporting.”
Peter Armah, group director HR at New City College, added, “Having a partner that can deliver to the size and scale of our growing recruitment requirements will allow the college group to have a clear view of expenditure. The improved management information we’ll be able to access will inform our workforce planning and talent strategies. We’re confident that Morgan Hunt will provide the right recruitment framework to deliver on our commitments to students.”
