Partnership to procure agency staff

A trailblazing, cross regional partnership to procure agency staff has yielded savings of £8,010

The partnership contract to procure agency staff was let to Comensura.  The hours worked and charges of each appointment are recorded and benchmarked against current commercial rates

Thanks to the City of Lincoln Council for this example

  1. Cost isn't everything there are other angles which need to be taken into consideration.

    I understand that this approach tends to exclude both local agencies who know local candidates and specialist agencies.

    The Comensura rule of no communication between agency and client prevents clarification of the role which is especially important where consultants are being taken on.

    It should be noted that Comensura is part of a group which includes a number of recruitment agencies.
