Outsourcer Steria, outsources recruitment
Tuesday, September 09, 2008
International IT services provider, Steria, has selected recruitment outsourcing specialist, Ochre House, to manage all permanent recruitment for its divisions and companies within the UK.
Under the three year contract, Ochre House will be responsible for sourcing around 300 roles per annum in a wide range of professional services areas from SAP consultants, project managers and practice heads to technical architects and analysts to legal and finance staff and new graduates. Ochre House will also provide consultancy services aimed at maximising the effectiveness of all Steria’s ‘talent management’ processes.
When Steria acquired the UK technology company, Xansa, in October 2007 the two established recruitment processes needed to be combined into one. “The new combined UK business at Steria had legacy suppliers which had been in place for some time” says Jean Hopkins HR Director for Steria in the UK. “It was a great opportunity to look carefully at what processes and strategies we needed to implement in order to attract and employ the best talent for our businesses.”
