London, 29 June 2015: Sopra Steria Recruitment (SSR) has today announced that it has won a place as a supplier across four lots for three years on the new Temporary Agency Staffing Services Framework Agreement (TASS). TASS was launched by the Southern Universities Purchasing Consortium (SUPC) to support its members in maximising the value obtained from temporary agency staff spend. SSR has been awarded to supply temporary resources across Corporate and IT Functions staff for TASS.
This win follows Sopra Steria’s competitive win in 2011 with SUPC for the supply of IT Contingent Labour. SUPC led this recent tender exercise on behalf of its members and also for members of the North Eastern Universities Purchasing Consortium (NEUPC), the North Western Universities Purchasing Consortium (NWUPC) and Advanced Procurement for Universities and Colleges, Scotland, (APUC).
Supporting this framework is essential to the education sector and with over 35 years of experience in the recruitment profession, SSR is well equipped to deliver world-class solutions. Through meaningful client and supplier relationships, SSR remains committed to delivering better outcomes for all parties.
Pete Holliday, Managing Director, Sopra Steria Recruitment, comments: “Securing a place for Sopra Steria Recruitment across this new framework is a great achievement in a highly competitive environment. We are now poised to add value to universities across multiple dimensions of their recruitment strategy. We have already made placements under the previous framework for IT-contingent labour, and will be accelerating this as demand grows in 2015 and beyond. This win helps cement the SSR aspiration of growing as leaders in recruitment transformation.”
