Demonstrating our unique strength successfully placing a “hard to find” specialist interim
Nottinghamshire County Council required an Interim Locum Childcare Solicitor. Having exhausted all their usual recruiting channels, they turned to the LGRP framework, finding in Venn Group a specialist recruitment supplier able to deliver the specialist skills needed for the role

Priorities supported:

  • Interim qualified legal support for a busy childcare department

  • An LGRP-contracted specialist supplier who could fulfil this especially hard-to-find requirement

  • A new route to market, having exhausted their past providers talent pool

Experience applied:

  • For over 20 years we have supported Local Authorities across the UK and built a network of the sector’s best professionals, including Childcare Locums

  • On receiving the email from LGRP we leveraged our team structure to contact our network of childcare solicitors

  • Invited to partner with Nottinghamshire County Council via the LGRP framework, we collaborated with procurement and the line managers, keeping the process fully transparent and ensuring a positive outcome

Outcomes delivered:

  • Presented a shortlist of two candidates within 4 hours of the role release on LGRP

  • Oversaw an end-to-end process of 10 days

  • High quality client support, dedicating time and attention to sourcing a hard-to-fill requirement

  • As recently awarded LGRP suppliers, proved the value of our specialist knowledge and local government network
