Soft Market Testing is a method of gathering market intelligence on a given subject area by engaging with the providers of the goods/services required. Nottingham Revenue & Benefits Ltd (NRB Ltd) is to undertake a soft market testing exercise to canvass external providers of recruitment & training for Benefits and Council Tax colleagues. For the purpose of this exercise, it is important to note that we are looking for a provider able to advertise, recruit, train and test groups of high calibre individuals in a short window. NRB is based in Nottingham city centre. The company requires a recruitment solution which can deliver against both forecast recruitment windows and which is also able to react swiftly to new requirements. The numbers of staff required will vary and NRB Ltd is seeking to minimise the length of time from the need arising to having trained, high calibre staff operational. A rigorous process including selection, referencing, DBS checks and training is required.
