Continually in need of the industry’s most skilled labour to support its own teams and meet sophisticated specifications for projects across rail, energy, natural resources and other sectors, J Murphy and Sons required greater control over its contractor workforce to achieve costs savings and improved governance. Having never had a dedicated contingent recruitment partner in place and regularly spending millions of pounds a year on hiring, it went out to tender to source an expert that could create a more efficient strategy.
Manchester United: Inside the business of football
As one of the world’s most iconic brands, the complexity of the Manchester United business model and the sheer scale of its operations requires it to be the best both on and off the pitch.
Beyond its superstar players lies a vast network of talented people that enable the club to continue delivering the true magic of the beautiful game and reaching millions of people around the globe.
Making this happen requires a talent partner so intrinsically linked that it blurs the lines between ‘them and us’ and creates one united and enlarged team. Their mantra is to attract, develop and retain a best-in-class workforce that sits behind the scenes and sets the club apart from its competition.
Manchester United’s retained talent partner, RPOne – the Morson Group’s recruitment process outsourcing (RPO) delivery arm – now focuses on developing the club’s employer brand, creating streamlined candidate journeys, evolving ED&I agendas and developing behavioural frameworks, all whilst delivering the plethora of diverse skills that the business requires.
“Football is king, which naturally garners the club’s priority focus and investment, but we’re now broadening our scope and taking our employer brand out to market by focusing on elevating candidate experiences, digitising the recruitment journey, proactively taking steps to continue diversifying our workforce, and building future-focussed pipelines of early talent at grassroots level.
We’re adding value throughout the entire talent journey by working with hiring managers to attract the right people for long-term careers with the club and sharing the stories of our exceptional talent that sit behind the scenes.”
– Sarah McGuire, head of talent development and resourcing at Manchester United
