This Week's Highlight - Recruitment Services Required

Quite often, government agencies will outsource portions of their recruitment services in an effort to improve efficiency, particularly where there is a more pressing need to be met. This week two opportunities have been issued seeking recruitment services, one for the Australia Council for the Arts and the other for the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC).

Expressions of Interest – Recruitment Services: The Australia Council for the Arts is the Australian Government’s arts funding and advisory body. Currently employing approximately 115 staff the Council is seeking expressions of interest from recruitment services providers to join a Multi-User List (MUL), for the provision of temporary workers, placement of contract or permanent employees and/or executive search services. By establishing a MUL, the council aims to create a pool of pre-qualified suppliers who have a proven capability against at least one of the required areas. Current or past suppliers on the MUL will not be eligible for inclusion on this MUL unless they submit a new application.

This MUL will be operational for a period of two years and is scheduled to take effect on 3 June 2019, with options for renewal. Note that the RFT documentation is accessible via a link to the Council website and not directly on Austender. Furthermore, submissions are to be emailed directly to the Council. This RFT closes 29 Apr 19.

Recruitment Process Outsourcing: ASIC is Australia’s corporate, markets, financial services and consumer credit regulator, currently employing approximately 2000 staff nationally. From July 1st, 2019, ASIC will no longer employ candidates under the Public Service Act, rather it will employ under the ASIC Act and is seeking to explore new approaches to talent supply and recruitment. As such, the organisation is aiming to engage the services of a recruitment service provider to administer and manage ASIC recruitment activities for permanent and contract recruitment. This RFT excludes contingent workers and requires service providers to be responsible for managing the hiring process from job profiling, managing applications, screening, and assisting with interviewing, reporting, and providing advice to hiring managers.

This contract will run for 3 years with options to extend for a further 2 years. The RFT closes 8 May 19.
