Master Vendor Model
If you are looking for a master vendor solution then we could help.
We have launched a sister company called Operam Managed Solutions that specialises in providing managed solutions. We have developed this so that we can provide an unbiased service that acts in the best interest of the client.
By outsourcing to Operam as a master vendor they would not only streamline your recruitment processes and methodologies, but they would also be able to fill the vast majority of your vacancies through First Recruitment Group and our global network. If the vacancies could not be filled by the managed tier after an agreed period of exclusivity, the vacancies would pass to a lower tier. This would normally happen with some more niche roles that are outside of the core competence of the master vendor.
Operam can provide this type of solution for temporary, permanent or combined recruitment needs.
They can managed everything from the recruitment agency suppliers, to the payroll process, ensuring legal compliance and transparent reporting.
The advantage of this process is that you will normally have an onsite presence that will manage the whole implementation stages as well as ongoing development.
During our consultation stage we will look at the following points to help you streamline your process:
- Time to hire
- Your quickest suppliers
- Your top suppliers for delivery
- The suppliers with the best CV to placement ratio
- Those who are best at filling more niche roles
- Are all your contractors compliant with industry regulations?
- Any issues arising and suggested improvements.
Who is an MSP best suited to?

We tailor our service to your need. If your requirement is substantial, our systems help us manage the complexity and make sure nothing gets missed along the way.
