TENDER OPPORTUNITY The London Borough of Sutton (Sutton Council) is working on behalf of the Local Government Recruitment Partnership (LGRP), previously known as the London Borough Recruitment Partnership (LBRP) and is seeking expressions of interest from suitably qualified organisations for the provision of a Framework Agreement for recruitment services divided into four Lots: Lot 1 – Strategic HR management consultancy services Consultancy services including but not limited to: employer branding, branded materials, social media advice and management, search engine marketing and optimisation, market intelligence outplacement, organisational design and redesign, organisational development, executive coaching and development, options for people management solutions, workforce delivery models, and ideas for maximising recruitment from talent pools.  N.B. There is no obligation upon the Partners to buy all or any of these services – as business need will determine their approach. Lot 2 – Executive and interim search and selection Executive search services for both permanent and interim roles including hard-to-fill specialist roles. This service would be typically used for roles where the salary is higher than £50,000 per annum. Lot 3 – Talent Wave portal A jobs board / portal for all partners to place adverts which would be accessible for employees of partner authorities, with a separate section to store details of redeployees / employees at risk of redundancy (who could be sent details of suitable roles placed based on criteria they enter onto the system), and capacity for other job seekers to submit their details and career interests. The portal will also enable the promotion of the Local Government employer brand, and should have the functionality to feature news items and advertorial content. With regards to redeployees the aim is  potentially to reduce the number of staff being made redundant and save each authority redundancy costs. Lot 4 – Software employer brand and recruitment advertising solutions An electronic software tool  that can be used by a centralised team (employed by London Borough of Sutton on behalf of the partnership) to design adverts and  jobs board banners that can be resized and amended as necessary to ensure the partner organisation’s brand is consistent and the advert is suitably sized for the chosen media. The software solution should provide a built in workflow between the LGRP Team, the appropriate contact from the partner organisation and the media to allow for quick and tracked communication between all parties. The LGRP team would book all adverts on behalf of the partnership with the media, also including public notices. Applicants are invited to apply for one or more Lots. It is the intention of the Council to invite a maximum of 10 suppliers, (for lot 2), to tender, and a maximum of 6 suppliers, (for lots 1, 3 and 4), to tender.  The contract will be for a period of two (2) years commencing on 1st April 2015 until 31st March 2017, with the option to extend twice for a period of 12 months (2+1+1). The Council is tendering this contract through the London Tenders e-tendering portal, our preferred method of advertising and managing contract opportunities. Prospective Tenderers are advised to register their interest by going to https://www.london tenders.org/procontract/supplier.nsf   Social Value is the added benefit to the community following a commissioning/procurement process over and above the direct purchasing of goods, services and outcomes. It shall be a requirement for organisations to work with the Council in delivering and measuring Social Value throughout the lifetime of this agreement. Sutton Council currently contracts with a diverse group of voluntary, statutory and private sector providers and encourages a range of organisations, regardless of size, to apply for this provision. We are committed to creating jobs and training opportunities though our supply chain. A pre-qualification questionnaire is available on the portal which the Council shall evaluate to identify the shortlisted suppliers to be invited to tender. The Council shall not be bound to accept the lowest cost or any tender and reserves the right to accept all or part of an offer. The award of contract shall be based on the most economically advantageous tender submitted. Deadline for expressions of interest and submission of a completed pre-qualification questionnaire is 2:00pm on Monday 19th May 2014.
