Northgate appoints ResourceBank to 3 year RPO contract

Northgate plc has appointed ResourceBank to deliver a full managed service RPO covering all UK recruitment on a three and a half year contract running until 2021. ResourceBank has provided a partial RPO to Northgate since 2012 and the success of this service has led to Northgate extending the contract to cover all UK sales and IT recruitment as well as operations and head office vacancies for Van Monster and Northgate Vehicle Hire.

The contract covers all areas of talent attraction including the management and development of the Northgate careers website, social media and apprenticeship recruitment. ResourceBank also provides employee engagement services, HR training, exit interviews and outplacement to Northgate. Northgate is the UK’s leading commercial vehicle hire company with over 70 UK locations and over 2,000 employees.

Louise Clough, HR Shared Services Manager at Northgate said: “We want to attract the best people into our business in the most efficient manner. ResourceBank have demonstrated their capability over the last 5 years and now that they are responsible for all of our UK talent attraction activity we will see a more co-ordinated, harmonised and effective service.

ResourceBank Managing Director Richard Pearson commented: “We were delighted to be awarded this contract extension together with the further expansion of our successful partnership. The journey so far has benefited from the enthusiasm and commitment on both sides and we look forward to the next phase.”

The Northgate careers website, developed earlier this year by ResourceBank, has been shortlisted for a major industry award.  Read more about the award and about ResourceBank’s service to Northgate.
