Talent has cemented its position as the UK’s leading public sector IT recruiter after being named as a supplier for the government’s new Digital Outcomes and Specialists (DOS) framework.
Set for active trading in April 2016, the DOS framework will sit along G-Cloud and Crown Hosting in the UK government’s online supplier’s portal commonly known as the ‘Digital Marketplace’. In February 2016, the Cabinet Office announced that sales through the Digital Marketplace, which was set up in 2012, had broken through the £1bn barrier.
Various public sector organisations and departments throughout the UK can now rely on Talent to help source digital specialists.
Talent UK CEO Jonathan Butterfield believes that the appointment will see two of Talent’s main strengths combine to provide unrivalled service: “We’re already working with a large number of both private and public sector organisations to help build their digital capabilities. This experience combined with our excellent track record of working within the Digital Marketplace leaves us well placed to expand on our existing partnerships and open new doors within the public sector,” he said.
Talent UK Executive Director, Andrew Scholes played a key role in securing the DOS supplier status award, stating: “The Digital Marketplace has helped cut a lot of the red tape that traditionally held the public sector back. It brings buyers and suppliers closer together and it’s great that many of our existing partners will now be able to benefit from our digital sourcing expertise.”
