Market leading health and care organisation BUPA has selected recruitment outsourcing provider Ochre House to manage the recruitment for its UK health insurance business.

Ochre House was selected ahead of strong competition, primarily due to its unique ability to meet both specialist and volume resourcing needs.

Ochre House’s recruitment team will be based on-site at BUPA’s Staines and Manchester offices, and will be responsible for managing the end-to-end sourcing and selection of approximately 1300 employees over the term of the two year contract.

Phil Knight, Head of HR for BUPA Health Insurance explained, “Ochre House was the only company that started with what BUPA needed. They really worked hard to understand our needs and developed innovative responses to meet them. In the short time they have been appointed, they proved their ability to execute and deliver.

Chris Herrmannsen, Group Managing Director for Ochre House says; “We look forward to bringing our expertise and collaborative approach to BUPA to help them to compete effectively by ensuring they have the right people for their business. We hope to build on our successes from the past year and continue to provide our clients with innovative and bespoke solutions to help them attract and retain top talent”.
