NRL believe that strategic alliancing, where key trusted suppliers and the client enter into a formal strategic alliance and sign up to a common set of goals, can add true value to daily operations. By creating an operating protocol that governs the requirements and behaviours of the alliance all stakeholders share joint objectives and deliverables.
Working closely with the client, NRL assess the recruitment needs from a discipline and geographical point of view then select additional recruitment partners as required. A bespoke operating protocol is created to define the circulation, competition, fulfilment, dispute resolution and reporting criteria of the alliance.
Engaging second tier suppliers
To meet seasonal demands, project specific work packages or niche operational areas, NRL can work with the client to identify any additional suppliers that may be required.
A full tender process can be undertaken to identify these potential suppliers and evaluate their operations and processes to ensure they meet the governing requirements and behaviours expected of the alliance. Second tier suppliers are then asked to formally sign up to the common set of goals for the alliance, which NRL will regularly review to ensure they are being met.
Adding value to our client relationships
This strategic approach, drawing on second tier recruitment suppliers where required, delivers a range of benefits to our clients.
Client benefits from a lower cost due to the single mark-up, agreed by all suppliers, as well as the level of controlled competition created between the alliance members, thus achieving a greater level of urgency and vacancy fulfilment within the supply chain.
