5 March 2013 – Advanced Business Solutions (Advanced) and public sector recruitment specialist Stepchange have agreed a partnership, which builds on Advanced’s existing agreement with online recruitment management systems provider, Advorto.

Stepchange improves public sector bodies’ recruitment processes, which includes implementing and supporting the Advorto online recruitment management system.

Advanced’s public sector customers will now be able to benefit from the combined expertise of both Stepchange and Advorto, helping them to improve their recruitment management processes while achieving significant efficiencies from the Advorto system.

Advorto’s online recruitment management system allows human resource departments to automate the full requisition-to-hire process, thereby reducing time-to-hire and cost-to-hire throughout the entire talent recruitment lifecycle. The system also delivers a fast payback while supporting the QIPP agenda for the NHS (covering Quality, Innovation, Productivity and Prevention).

Dean Dickinson, Managing Director of Advanced Business Solutions (Public Sector & Enterprise Division), says, “This robust partnership provides our public sector customers with the very best online recruitment software, implementation expertise and ongoing system support. With Stepchange’s 40 years’ experience servicing the public sector, our customers can be assured that their recruitment needs are being supported by the very best in the industry.”

Malcolm Fowler, Managing Director of Stepchange says, “This partnership means that our recruitment expertise will now be readily available to Advanced’s public sector customers, helping them to leverage their people and recruitment systems to maximum effect while delivering significant cost and efficiency benefits.”
