To be in a position to help the public sector achieve commercial value is a huge honour

London, 06 December 2018: Sopra Steria Recruitment, one of the UK’s leading staffing companies and managed recruitment service providers, is delighted to announce that it has been awarded a place on the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework to provide Permanent Recruitment Services to government organisations.

The Crown Commercial Service supports the public sector to achieve maximum commercial value when procuring common goods and services. Under the agreement, Sopra Steria Recruitment will be supplying talent through three Lots: Lot 2 – Digital, Data and Technology; Lot 3 – Corporate – Commercial, HR, Marcomms, Property and Legal; and Lot 5 – Project Delivery – Project & Programme Delivery Roles. These services cover the identification, attraction and assessment of permanent, fixed-term or inward secondment candidates.

The win comes following a competitive six-month-long procurement exercise which scrutinised the capability of multiple bidders which were aiming to become framework suppliers across diverse roles and disciplines.

Karen Alexander, Sales and Delivery Director for Sopra Steria Recruitment, commented:

“We are delighted that CCS has chosen Sopra Steria Recruitment to provide permanent recruitment services across the public sector. While we have long been known as an organisation which excels in the provision of contract and fixed-term professionals, this win underlines not only our strength of delivery to existing public sector clients, but also our capability to supply high-volumes of permanent talent. I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our team, without which partnerships such as this would not be possible.To be in a position to help the public sector achieve commercial value is a huge honour, and it is only through the experience, expertise and passion of our people that we can achieve this.”
