Taunton-based recruitment company admitted to national framework - again!

Jobseekers Recruitment Services Ltd. has recently been successful in their bid for a place on the new national Non Clinical Temporary and Fixed Term Staff (NCS) framework.

The framework was launched earlier this year by Crown Commercial Service in collaboration with NHS Procurement in Partnership. Framework agreement RM6160, which came into force on 29 July 2019, replaces agreement RM971 (July 2015 – June 2019).

Made up of six lots, RM6160 gives NHS contracting authorities and all UK public sector bodies such as local governments, universities, and charities, the ability to secure quality candidates both regionally and nationally, under a variety of different specialisms.

A total of 207 suppliers have been appointed across all six lots, and Jobseekers was one of only 78 organisations in the UK selected to supply Administrative, Clerical and Secretarial staff under Lot 1.

Their bid to appear on Lot 2 – Corporate Functions, was also successful, meaning that they can continue to supply Finance, Accounting, and Auditing staff to a number of high-profile, public sector organisations.

This is the third consecutive national framework that Jobseekers have been successfully awarded a place on.   

Managing Director, John Farmer (pictured), highlighted the value and importance of the firm’s continued place on this short list of suppliers, which is not only a great achievement for the company, but also a fantastic opportunity for the candidates that Jobseekers work with.

He said: “A place on the NCS framework offers us access to a whole range of public sector clients, some of whom we have enjoyed working with for the last ten years and more. Under this agreement, we are able to offer our candidates access to these excellent employers, which currently includes not only the NHS but also the Met Office and the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office.”
