Resettling the workforce
This Global Systems Integrator established and delivered an armed forces resettlement programme with our support.
Optamor has been in partnership with our customer, who is recognised as one of the UK’s leading technology systems integrators (principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services) since 1996. We were awarded Managed Service supplier status in 2002 and now manage in excess of £25 million of their recruitment spend. Optamor operates across multiple sites in the UK and EMEA to find talent that fits our customer’s brand and corporate philosophy.
Over 55,300 current/ex forces personnel reached through online and face to face promotional activities.
It was imperative that Optamor reduce the burden of all contingent recruitment related activities and processes whilst additionally supporting the permanent recruitment effort. As an extension of the HR function Optamor undertook a full review of historic recruitment supply to ensure that future demands could be met through the effective use of a people management solution which encapsulated a full supply chain review and implementation. Our customer had a wide recruitment requirement which included roles from Quality and Design Engineers through to Technicians, Assemblers and Purchasing and Supply at all levels of experience.
How we saw things differently...
Our fully engaged specialist supply chain guided and managed by our Partnership team were required to support and deliver to a program of recruitment that reduced time to hire and associated costs and increased customer satisfaction. Key activities included:
Review of historic supply chain
Full contractual review and implementation of new business appropriate commercial and contractual terms fully supported by effective key performance indicators
Full management, review and control of the secondary supply chain to ensure it met the on-going requirements of our customer
"We work closely with Optamor in supplying technical staff...We enjoy an excellent relationship with Optamor’s on-site team members who are always professional and timely in keeping us in the loop – something that many “Managed Service Providers” miss out on. We have succeeded in making placements by working as partners and not simply a bolt-on resource."

Building talent solutions that work.
The implementation of an effective supply chain which covers not only technical requirements, but diverse geographical locations, has meant that our customer received a timely and appropriate response to all requirements from a supply chain that fully understand the business and both its skills-based and cultural profile.
