This ESPO framework offers customers a quick, simple and competitive route to procuring a managed service provider to look after recruitment of interim staff.

All of the suppliers on this framework have been selected for their ability to provide customers with a comprehensive range of services that combine quality and value.

The Lots are as follows:

  • Lot 1 - Managed Service Provision
    • Lot 1a Neutral Vendor: MSP to manage a supply chain of Agencies.
    • Lot 1b Master Vendor: MSP to generate a pool of staff, from which they will fill vacancies. Further tiers of agencies may also be used where necessary.
  • Lot 2 – Vendor Management System: for customers looking for a technology solution that helps them manage recruitment agencies, either on a self-service basis where recruitment is devolved to hiring managers, or via their own internal recruitment team.
  • Lot 3 – Talent Pool Technology: For customers who are looking for a Talent Pool Technology Platform that they can contract with directly and either include within their existing MSP delivery model or develop internally as a stand-alone solution.

The framework will be available for use nationally by any public sector body in the UK including, but not limited to…

  • Local Authorities
  • Central Government Agencies and Ministries
  • NHS and Emergency (Blue Light) Services
  • Schools, Academies, Colleges and Universities
  • Registered Charities
