Public Sector Expertise

Government faces growing demands on services and public spending pressures, creating challenges for managers. Meeting objectives to improve efficiencies requires transformation across departments, whether through Shared Services or adapting to new economic realities. This places demands on management, needing new skills and ways of working. Yet it also brings opportunities, with careers in government more attractive than ever.

Case Study: Ofcom

In 2020, Omni began working with the UK’s communications regulator, Ofcom, providing an onsite Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) team to support their permanent and contingent recruitment strategy. With plans to open new offices and increase permanent headcount by up to 30% over a three-year period, alongside a need to compliantly manage their growing contingent workforce, Ofcom recognised the value an external partner could add to their internal hiring team.

Fast forward to 2023, and we are very proud of everything we have achieved to date, working alongside the Ofcom team – great employer brand, new and improved systems, data and reporting tools, EDI development and career hub in place and three awards!
