By working with us we can take the hassle away from your invoice management, through consolidated invoicing. As well as giving you greater visibility and control of your supply chain helping you to reduce operational costs. Through rate card management we can give you complete transparency.


Talent Pool and Staff Bank Management

In addition to our standard recruitment operating models, we have the functionality to offer clients a full Staff Bank Management solution. Our solution can be managed remotely by our team or embedded into your existing recruitment and HR functions. Underpinned by technology that allows complete real-time visibility of workers, availability and open/filled requirements.


HE/FE Shared Service MSP Solution

We have identified that a number of HE/FE institutes would welcome the opportunity to implement a full MSP, certain restraints (spend profile, locations and number of requirement) can prevent this. In conjunction with our specialist brands, we have developed a market-leading solution that allows HE/FE institutes to share resources and staff banks which again is underpinned by our state-of-the-art technology.

This shared service model will be managed by Pertemps either on or offsite. Our dedicated team will manage the requirements across set geographies, allowing HE/FE institutes to implement all of the benefits of an MSP and to move away from traditional local agency supply.


Student support

At Pertemps Managed Solutions, we believe it’s of crucial importance to prepare and support young people transitioning into the working world, through providing valuable employability skills and work-related experience. We are committed to helping young people get the skills they need to tackle the challenges of the future.  

We work in partnership with our clients up and down the country, to help those furthest from the job market by providing accessible learning and development opportunities, to help young people secure work and to ensure they have the skills to adapt for the future. 

With the support of our extensive branch network, we can provide your students with CV workshops, career guidance, national job opportunities and work placements.
