Economies of Scale

Supporting a multi-disciplined engineering company to leverage economies of scale whilst maintaining a fully compliant supply chain.


Our client, a large multi-disciplined engineering company has broad mechanical and electrical engineering hiring needs in terms of both skillsets and UK locations.

As a growing business with multiple specialist divisions, they were feeling the strain of the administrative burden of managing a preferred supplier list (PSL) and having visibility of exactly how much they are spending on recruitment whilst maintaining legislative compliance. 

After being the best performing agency supplier, supporting circa 50% (by spend) of their temporary recruitment needs for several years, we were able to pitch a solution to offer:

  • Supply chain control – retain the breadth of supply but through a single route to market
  • Cost savings and increased visibility of spend
  • Fixed, consistent and simple rates and Terms and Conditions
  • Optimum legislative compliance

Working in close partnership with the internal teams, we presented a master vendor solution to various levels of the business.

Thanks to a long-standing relationship with the business, Our Account Manager and Lead Recruiter deliver unrivalled expertise not just in the Mechanical and Engineering market, but specifically in line with the business requirements. This allowed for a smooth transition to a managed service provider with minimal disruption to hiring managers or the supply of talent.

To this day we continue to provide a tailored solution through a dedicated account team delivering temporary, contingent, fixed-term and permanent staff.
