What is Recruitment Process Outsourcing?

Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) is the outsourcing of all or part of recruitment to a third-party recruitment specialist. When recruitment solutions are managed well with a quality provider, it can reduce time to hire by 40% and deliver cost savings of more than 50%.


The RPO model  embeds dedicated recruiters, technology and best practice processes inside an organization’s business. Aligned to hiring managers, they lead the end-to-end recruitment process from forecasting to sourcing, assessing, placing, on-boarding and reporting.

Through clearly defined processes and deep specialisation, RPO solutions can dramatically reduce cost per hire, time to hire and attrition, plus measurably improve quality of hire, reporting and scalability, delivering you a far greater return on investment.
