London, 8 April 2019: 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 Cirrus Consortium Agency Labour & Recruitment Framework to provide staff to public sector organisations.

The Framework covers the provision of temporary and permanent staff, including interim placements. Under the agreement, Sopra Steria Recruitment will be supplying talent through four Lots: Lot 5 – IT; Lot 6 – Finance; Lot 7 – HR; and Lot 12 - Executive Directors. The current agreement runs until March 2023.

Based in North West England, Cirrus Purchasing Ltd is a specialist procurement consultancy which supports the social housing, public and private sectors. The Cirrus Consortium is a group of contracting authorities across England, Scotland and Wales which have joined together to establish frameworks for a range of products and services that comply with the Public Contracts Regulations (PCR). The Consortium is led directly by member organisations and managed by Cirrus Purchasing Ltd.

The framework is available to use for all contracting authorities including local authorities, social housing providers, police & emergency services, NHS trusts, schools, universities and registered charities and offers a shorter and compliant route to procurement.

Daniel O’Mahoney, Senior Account Manager at Sopra Steria Recruitment, commented: “We are delighted that Cirrus has chosen Sopra Steria Recruitment to provide both contract and permanent recruitment services to government and charitable organisations. This appointment offers the opportunity to build on our successful track record in delivering recruitment services to the public sector, which is a market we truly understand.

“I’d like to take this opportunity to thank our dedicated delivery 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 thanks to Sopra Steria Recruitment’s key differentiators – such as superior market knowledge, flexibility in service offering and commitment to getting it right first time for our clients - that we have the opportunity to deliver this.”
