  • UK, Malaysia and China

Business needs:

  • Management of full recruitment lifecycle across the departments including cars, engineering, purchasing, manufacturing and design

ARM’s impact:

  • Supporting 61 ARM contractors plus the novation of another 50 from second-tier agencies through a managed service contract

Project history:

In April 2010, ARM was awarded a managed service contract assuming responsibility for the attraction, recruitment and engagement of this high profile UK-based organisation’s contingency workforce.

Part of the overall implementation saw the novation of 61 existing direct contractors and 50 incumbent agency suppliers to ARM through a managed transition process which ran in parallel with the implementation of the new solution.

How we help this British car manufacturer:

Serocor’s managed service specialists, ARM and Optamor, are responsible for managing a full recruitment lifecycle for this renown car manufacturer. This includes hiring activity within the cars, engineering, purchasing and manufacturing departments as well as non-permanent workers permitted at the design studio.

The Managed Service contract included supporting 61 ARM contractors plus the novation of another 50 from second-tier agencies. Over the length of the relationship, ARM made a total of over 288 placements (271 contractors and 17 permanent placements) whilst also providing invaluable personal and management development training services.

The ARM Solution:

Supplying contractors across the UK, Malaysia and China, ARM is a trusted partner and has regularly provided recruitment programme management to support permanent hiring activities.

The introduction of the eploy® platform has simplified recruitment through a single process on one system, providing higher satisfaction levels and reducing hiring time for an enhanced candidate experience. Optamor’s eTimesheet also provides simple and intuitive timesheet administration.

Additionally, ARM introduced on-site contractor clinics and social activities such as evening events which provided valuable support. These initiatives encourage contractor engagement, help drive maximum performance and build lasting relationships.
