Avencia brings a fresh perspective to recruitment outsourcing. Simplicity over complexity. Quality over volume. Personalisation over uniformity.

Your guiding light in RPO

RPO is the outsourcing of some or all of your permanent and fixed-term contract hiring needs. It's about developing your employer brand, streamlining your current recruitment, reducing the cost of acquiring talent and delivering an enhanced, consistent candidate experience.

Always on course

The best RPO doesn't feel like outsourcing at all. It blends seamlessly with your HR team - or acts as an extension of your in-house recruitment team - to ensure every person, and process, works in harmony throughout your recruitment journey.

Avencia's RPO helps you compete for the best talent, lower the cost of acquiring talent, increase candidate quality, and decrease the time it takes to secure them.

A simpler way

Need a recruitment solution in days, not months? We can. Want a programme that holds hiring managers' hands rather than relying on self-service? It will. Keen to measure the ROI of new hires? You can. Looking to bake in diverse and inclusive recruitment practices? We do.

Specialisation, excellence and value lie at the heart of Avencia, and the partnerships we form. With all three reflected by Lumesse, it wasn't hard for us to choose their TalentLink platform - flexible, easily configurable talent acquisition and management software.

Taking you there

Partnering with an MSP provider doesn't have to be complicated. The right provider removes the risks associated with a decentralised, manual process for procuring contract labour.

Avencia’s MSP solutions ensure a high quality of interim talent, policy compliance, cost optimisation, and mitigated risk, while enhancing the pre, on and post-assignment experience for contractors.
