I hope everyone is looking forward to the weekend. Everyone in South Wales is getting excited as Ed Sheeran is here to play 4 nights at the Principality Stadium in Cardiff. It is not that often we get well known acts perform in South Wales, so when someone does, everyone gets a little excited.
This week’s blog is going to be an update on what has been happening in the office over the last couple of weeks. The last few weeks has been quite different to a normal working week due to a couple of reasons. The first one being that we have welcomed a new member of staff to the team and secondly the big change over from Capita to Alexander Mann Solutions (AMS).
So the first update is that this week we welcome Sam to the team! Sam has joined us on a temporary basis to cover maternity leave and he will be working as a Recruitment Consultant. You will start to see his name on new roles we post out whilst he is being trained up, so feel free to introduce yourself and make him feel welcome.
The second update for this week is the transfer from Capita to Alexander Mann solutions. As you may know the framework which looks after the Government contracts was looked after by Capita under the CL1 Framework, although the framework is now being replaced by the Public Sector Resourcing framework, which will now be looked after by AMS.
The take over is being completed in 3 steps. The main transfer was completed at the start of this week on Monday 18th June, although some government departments are not being transferred over until a later date in 2 more stages. So for the next few months we will be going back and forth with both Capita and AMS until the transfer is complete in September.
If you are currently one of our contractors and you are wondering how the switch over will affect you, you will have received an email from the commercial team, keeping you updated on any changes that have been made and if you need to act on anything.
You may have noticed that it has been a slightly slower week on new positions, this is due to AMS ensuring the transfer process went smoothly and setting everything up correctly to release new requirements. AMS are expecting to release new positions at the start of next week, so we should start to see more new roles coming in from then, so keep an eye out on our ‘Jobs’ page or on our emails.
I hope you have a great weekend.
