Stepping in to manage an imminent recruitment surge

CASE STUDY: GLA - ENGAGE|ATS

Embedding ourselves at the heart of the GLA organisation

The challenge

The Greater London Authority (GLA) are the regional authority for transport, policing, economic development, and even fire and emergency planning, which means that they often recruit for lots of different roles, at different times, and with different requirements. But thanks to one global pandemic, an imminent recruitment surge and lack of internal bandwidth, this job was about to be a lot harder.

 

The solution

What GLA needed was a team to take the weight off their shoulders. So, that’s what we provided. Already the supplier of their applicant tracking system engage|ats, we took our relationship with them one step further by embedding ourselves within their organisation. Assigning two engage|ats project managers to work alongside their hiring managers, we took control of everything from campaign set-up to candidate management and communication.

 

The results

It worked perfectly. In partnership with the GLA, we published just under 400 vacancies over the course of 12 months. We brought in the right kind of permanent talent for their different sectors and built a bond with them that allowed for a near-seamless recruiting experience. Meaning the GLA could move away from using temporary resource, reduce the time to hire and manage the recruitment spike in a cost-effective way. In fact, it all worked so well, they extended our arrangement for a full six months more.
