NPL is the UK's National Metrology Institute, developing and maintaining the national primary measurement standards. It is a Public Corporation owned by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). In 2020 Optamor’s Project Resource Capability was selected by The National Physical Laboratory to provide a high-performing recruitment programme for a 3-month period. Their objective was to focus on key Science and Engineering areas/job roles, born from a reduced capacity of their direct recruitment team. This included an on-site presence as well as specialist direct sourcing supplied by our scalable and flexible delivery teams.
