How to win recruitment tenders

Whether it is a PSL, MSP or RPO provision, buyers in this sector are typically looking for value for money and the ability to provide quality, vetted staff within a cost effective manner, and within agreed timescales.

The requirements of agency staff against permanent staff differ in approach and price and therefore, the distinction needs to be clear within any recruitment tender response.

Account management and communication are key to successful partnerships so buyers will also be keen to understand how you will work together and what plans you have in place to overcome challenges.

Challenges to overcome when bidding for recruitment tenders

One of the biggest challenges we have found is standing out from the competition. In such a competitive market, the recruitment industry is always looking at how to innovate and do things differently to ensure that buyers are receiving total value. As such, providing added value services is what will make an organisation stand out from competitors, such as promoting a buyer’s EVP (Employee Value Proposition).

Another challenge of tendering within the recruitment industry is the ability to be price competitive in such a big market. As the industry is constantly evolving and buyers are changing the ways in which they recruit, factors such as providing added value services with minimal margin is challenging to many suppliers.

It's also highly important to gain a detailed understanding of the expectations and services the buyer requests and take the time to answer any questions clearly and honestly.
