I’m a recruitment outsourcing expert.

Having worked for three of the country’s most successful recruitment outsourcing firms, in different guises and across vastly different accounts – from Operations Manager of the largest MSP in Europe, to the lone running of an SME-sized RPO – I’ve experienced a lot in my nearly 10 years in recruitment.

I believe the future for permanent recruitment for every company SME-sized and above, should be a partnership focused RPO. Most businesses state that their people are their biggest asset, and an RPO is the best recruitment method to protect those assets when they’re in the process of entering your business. In tandem with Macildowie’s Retention Service, our RPO is also the best way to help protect those assets when they’re already in your business too.

I believe all RPOs should focus on three key things for their clients: cost, time and talent.

In a post-Covid-19 society, these things will matter even more - with budgets being tighter, smaller teams doing more, and the importance of “the best, not the first” candidate being paramount - and therefore the benefit of an RPO relationship to businesses will be even greater.

Macildowie’s RPO has those three elements at its heart, but it can go further than that, and in what we believe, a unique way.

Macildowie’s RPO is small and flexible and as such its service can genuinely be tailored to exactly what your business needs from a recruitment function (something that larger outsourcers with significant overheads are unable to do). We’re also able to offer two exceptional value-adding services which – from what I understand no other competitor is currently doing – in our Retention Services and People Hub facility. All of which is underpinned by years of quality Macildowie service.

My aim is for Macildowie RPO to be a trusted and valued partner for our clients, delivering on the three key objectives of cost, time and talent – and doing it in a unique way that we can be proud of.

They were so kind and have both supported me throughout the interviewing process by providing me with interview material, mock interviews via Microsoft Teams, and words of encouragement to help boost my confidence.

Throughout the recruitment process, he ensured I was fully informed and armed with necessary information, which guaranteed my success.

Thank you Peter - you are a rare recruitment consultant find”
