What is RPO?

RPO stands for Recruitment Process Outsourcing. It's when an organisation outsources or transfers all or part of its recruitment process to an external supplier. RPO providers may be based on site with a client and act as an extension to a HR team and being absorbed into a team and its processes. They will take full ownership of every aspect of recruitment; from candidate attraction through to on-boarding and everything in between.

Successful RPO can also be delivered through technology which enables recruitment to be delivered in high volume across multiple locations. This software also enables recruitment agencies to act as a master vendor and manage supply through agencies where they need a little bit more support to fulfil a client's recruitment needs.
