ManpowerGroup to provide nationwide workforce solutions

Tait Communications selects ManpowerGroup to provide nationwide workforce solutions

New Zealand (3 July 2012) – ManpowerGroup has announced a two-year contract with Tait Communications to provide nationwide Recruitment Process Outsourcing (RPO) for the company.

Tait Communications first engaged ManpowerGroup in August 2010 to source specialist research and development engineers for its Christchurch headquarters. This initial project was expanded in January this year to outsourcing the full recruitment process.

Under the new contract, ManpowerGroup will provide a full RPO model for Tait Communications’ New Zealand operations, covering roles in Finance, ICT, HR, Manufacturing, Services, Project Management as well as specialist Research and Development Engineers.

“ManpowerGroup is proud to partner with Tait Communications, an iconic Christchurch company that is a global leader in the critical communications industry,” Matt Love-Smith, National Manager, Manpower New Zealand, said.

“Tait Communications is one of Canterbury’s biggest private sector employers with a diverse and highly-skilled workforce based in New Zealand and multiple regions around the world. ManpowerGroup is able to offer a coordinated, domestic and international recruitment solution that meets its needs,” Mr Love-Smith said.

Wendy Lush, Group Human Resources Manager for Tait Communications said outsourcing to recruitment specialists helps streamline its business.

"We’re pleased to be bringing Manpower on board at a time when Tait Communications is growing and there’s a continuing need for us to recruit top talent both here in New Zealand and overseas. While their initial work with us had an engineering focus, this new contract with Manpower will get them involved in recruitment right across our Christchurch campus. So far they’ve filled over 100 roles for us and we look forward to working with them on sourcing the next generation of great Tait people."
