RPO. What is it and why do you need it?

Recruitment Process Outsourcing is a scalable workforce solution where a business transfers all or part of its recruitment to an external provider. An RPO's capabilities go beyond filling openings: it can re-engineer your recruitment process from the ground up. Brunel provides RPO solutions in all of the core disciplines we serve, including Oil and Gas, Mining, Renewables, & Life Sciences.

Recruiting Agency vs RPO. What's the difference?

Though no two solutions are the same, a good RPO solution is strategic. In all cases, RPO providers manage clients’ entire recruitment cycle, operating as an extension of the employer. The focus is on building a strategic recruitment program that attracts, recruits and retains high-quality, full-time, permanent employees. 

Staffing agencies, which operate on a reactive recruitment model, work on a requisition-to-requisition basis. Brunel as an RPO provider assumes the responsibility of recruitment results during the partnership and manages clients’ entire recruitment cycle, operating as a seamless partner.

Types of RPO

Project-Based RPO

A Project-Based RPO is designed to meet a short-term increase in hiring demand. This solution is ideal for companies in ramp-up, expansion or rapid growth mode.

Enterprise RPO

In an Enterprise RPO, Brunel takes full ownership of your recruitment function. This can include design, technology, execution, on-boarding and strategy.
