Omni’s work under the CCS Framework

Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust Testimonial
It’s been great working with Omni who supported us in recruiting to several of our senior leader positions at Lewisham and Greenwich NHS Trust. The team at Omni have a very professional approach with a detailed plan on how they would work with us to achieve our objectives and from the outset were very adaptable to changes in schedules and turning around the programme within a very tight timeframe. The very friendly and engaged team liaised with our Directors to ensure the process ran smoothly and were open to feedback to ensure we had a positive recruitment experience. The microsite looked very professional and helped to attract some excellent candidates to our vacant positions and their system allowed all managers involved to effectively manage the recruitment process in a seamless way with our own systems and processes

The Hyde Group
Commencing in July 2012, Omni partnered with The Hyde Group to support their increased demand for candidates, reduction of resourcing costs and to create a recruitment process which would help them acquire their target talent quickly and minimise the overwhelming amount of administration which the organisation were required to undertake.
Omni worked closely with Hyde to successfully implement a recruitment service which met the needs of their business and enhanced their employer brand. Omni recruited interim, contracts and permanent hires. Furthermore, Omni introduced a host of additional activities such as employer branding and stay interviews throughout the relationship.
“The Omni team has worked with The Hyde Group to successfully re-design and implement a recruitment service that meets the needs of our business and enhances our employer brand. We have found Omni to be efficient, responsive, supportive and committed to service excellence, providing us with quality candidates to ensure that our business continues to thrive and make a lasting difference to the communities we work in and people’s lives. Omni is passionate about delivering what it promises and it is a pleasure working with them.” HR Director – The Hyde Group
Omni became Rydon Group’s RPO provider in June 2014. Rydon wanted a partner who could support and enhance their existing recruitment operations, giving their Recruitment Manager more time to focus on strategic recruitment within the organisation.
Omni exclusively recruits construction and building development professionals for Rydon which has quickly grown our understanding of the talent market.
“Omni took the time to understand our business before providing a recommended solution. Many of their competitors recommended a one size fits all approach, ignoring the fact that each of the four operating companies are distinctly different. Omni’s approach has been evidenced from the go-live date. They continue to update and refresh their knowledge on Rydon and each of its separate business units. They regularly engage with us to understand key challenges, but also to drive innovation. For organisations looking for more than just an ‘off the shelf’ RPO, I would highly recommend Omni.” James O’Loughlin, Head of Recruitment – Rydon
