Bell Integration has been in the business of helping companies establish, maintain and grow their IT services since 1996. Bell is at the forefront of helping companies drive down operating costs and improve their ability to engage with their own customers. In 2019 Optamor's Project Resourcing capability was selected by Bell to identify, engage and onboard 20 contract Buyers and Procurement leads for 3-6 month contract durations. Our customer required a scalable and flexible project resource service with a partner that could implement and deliver upon a 6-week end-to-end project plan from the sourcing of suitable candidates to onboarding.
Optamor mobilised our specialist project RPO team which included a team of on-site consultants located at the customer’s offices. Optamor’s expert procurement-focused recruitment team located at our office in Portsmouth supported the onsite team. The delivery teams are flexible and have the ability to be scaled at short notice to suit demand requirements. To support the delivery of the account, Optamor’s specialist talent attraction marketing team built a bespoke marketing campaign to attract the best procurement talent to suit requirements. Optamor’s project RPO consisted of:

All 22 candidates were identified, vetted and submitted to the customer within a two-week period.
