Project RPO Services

Fully outsourced hiring for scarce and senior talent at scale.

Reach out for an exploratory conversation

In the same way clients are using Talent Sourcing to provide a solution to finding and engaging with scarce and senior talent at scale, those with less developed Talent Acquisition teams are turning to fully outsourced projects to hire these most challenging talent cohorts as the talent market remains incredibly competitive for certain skills and experience.

What is Project RPO?

Project RPO offers clients a flexible alternative to multi-year recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) contracts. As organisations rightly demand greater value for money, our ability to stand up a team of talent researchers, sourcers and recruiters to deliver headhunting at scale is becoming more vital for clients. From initial research to placement, we match that team precisely to meet current business needs, enabling companies to move to commission outsourcing for individual hiring projects, hence Project RPO.

The benefits of Project RPO

Our Project and Executive RPO projects deliver a talent pipeline filled with the most in-demand talent and ensure that you are able to hire the best possible people for your niche or senior roles. 

At Armstrong Craven, we have always provided flexible solutions to support our clients. We are able to take full responsibility for hiring niche (Project RPO) and senior (Executive RPO) talent using our highly experienced research and talent sourcing teams, many of whom have 10+ years of sourcing and executive search experience.

By mobilising a highly experienced team we can identify and engage with even the most in-demand skills and senior talent. These projects require a skill and depth of candidate engagement that traditional RPOs cannot deliver.  At Armstrong Craven we will also provide you with deep and granular feedback from the talent we speak to, helping you understand their drivers and motivations, which will help you finesse your talent attraction strategies and improve the rate of acceptance from the most in-demand talent.

Our Project RPO service can be fully mobilised in 6-8 weeks, and we are so confident in our team that we do not charge implementation fees and all of our contracts offer a 30-day notice period.
