When you engage Globe 24-7 you are truly engaging a partner, they spend the time to understand not only the role but the person you are looking for. The current market is tight and being a Junior, we cannot compete on salaries. Globe 24-7 enthusiastically accepted the challenge, and I am very pleased to say they over delivered, they found us the perfect candidate quickly. I would engage 24-7 again without hesitation.

Why use outsourced recruitment?

If you don’t have the resources and skills to manage the recruitment process in-house, you can encounter costly problems, such as:

  • Reduced speed-to-hire
  • Internal teams bogged down in processes
  • Risk of an unfit hire

These issues lead to higher operational costs and potential loss of revenue.

An RPO arrangement gives you more visibility over your company’s branding and messaging to the market.

It also brings in new industry knowledge. You won’t find this with traditional bulk recruitment companies that have limited mining experience and success.

What is RPO?

It can be hard for mining companies to source talent through job ads and databases alone. Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) adds recruitment support to your team, helping you reduce time to hire.

We work with you to understand your company’s needs and take some or all the required recruitment tasks off your hands so you can focus on running your operations.

How does an RPO model work?

We start by getting a thorough understanding of your hiring needs and objectives. Using these, we create a clear roadmap to chart the sourcing, screening, and interviewing of best-fit candidates to help you streamline your recruitment operations.

What's included in the scope of an RPO?

The scope of a recruitment outsourcing project depends on what your company needs. It typically includes sourcing, screening, interviewing, selecting and onboarding candidates, but can include branding and talent consultancy too. A good RPO provider works closely with you to understand your specific recruitment needs and tailor a unique roadmap map to deliver end-to-end recruitment from start to finish.

What makes a successful RPO?

An outsourced recruitment partnership is successful when the RPO agency and the client work together to put in place a strategic roadmap to successfully place quality candidates.

A good RPO partnership comes from the RPO agency’s experience within your industry, their understanding of your company’s position in the market, and their understanding of your company’s internal needs.

Clear communication between all parties is also key.

What should I look for in an RPO provider?

When looking for an RPO partner, look for a team that really gets you and your industry. Look for a proven track record of success in your industry. The best way to do this is by looking at case studies of work they’ve already done and testimonials of past clients. A good RPO provider will be able to answer any questions you might have, walk you through the process and offer flexible and scalable solutions tailored to your company’s specific needs.

Contact our RPO team to see if outsourced recruitment is the right fit for your operations.

How is contingent hiring different to RPO?

Contingent hiring and Recruitment Process Outsourcing are two approaches to outsourced recruitment. Contingent hiring is where you outsource external recruiters on a per-placement basis, typically for specific roles. On the other hand, RPO is where you outsource your entire or partial recruitment process to a specialised RPO agency to source, screen, and select candidates on a long-term basis, resulting in a more strategic and integrated approach to talent acquisition, leading to a more aligned, comprehensive overall solution.

How do you handle the outsourced recruitment screening and selection process?

Our three-point screening process safeguards all aspects of the screening and selection process to bring you only the very best.

  1. We conduct initial candidate assessments to evaluate qualifications, experience, and suitability.
  2. We assess candidates’ communication skills and cultural fit via phone and video interviews.
  3. We run comprehensive behavioural and technical assessments, reference checks, and background screenings for additional insights and a thorough evaluation of candidates.

What does RPO stand for in talent acquisition?

RPO, in the context of talent acquisition, stands for “Recruitment Process Outsourcing.” It involves organisations partnering with external service providers to manage various aspects of their recruitment processes, from sourcing and screening candidates to conducting interviews and even onboarding.

RPO providers are specialists in talent acquisition, and they work closely with their clients to enhance efficiency, reduce costs, and improve the overall quality of hires. This outsourcing model allows companies to focus on their core business functions while leveraging the expertise and resources of RPO firms to attract and retain top talent.

RPO can be a flexible and strategic option for companies of all sizes seeking to make recruitment easier.
