Appointment to the PSL required suppliers to be able to work to Admin Re’s terms, supply the right candidates into a difficult market, protect the organisations brand image and establish effective relationships across the business, in order to become a trusted partner in an environment where managers have close relationships with multiple suppliers.
Rethink’s ability to demonstrate our capability, our experience and our passion to deliver the right candidates at the right time, coupled with our refreshingly honest approach to recruitment, ultimately led to us becoming a trusted partner to Admin Re, and to Rethink becoming one of the few suppliers appointed to their streamlined PSL.
Following our successful appoint-ment, Rethink continues to share an enviable client relationship with Admin Re’s internal recruitment team and both organisations enjoy a mutually beneficial partnership.
"Rethink is one of the few consultancies I know who really understand the market and consequently always deliver relevant candidates."

M&S was seeking a resourcing partner to alleviate issues in existing processes relating to contractor resourcing. With 18 suppliers managing a workforce of around 100 contractors, M&S wanted to review the terms of engagement, review the costs and introduce a programme of efficiencies to reduce the management time taken to recruit, on board and manage this contingency workgroup.
The project delivered:
- Over 10% of spend per annum saving on cost to hire 34 new contractors against new rate card
- Rethink has placed 150 new contractors over the life of the contract and 62 direct / migrations
- Rethink has placed four new contract deals a month (on average) over the past 12 months.
"They have delivered new staff to us well within the expected timescales and have been instrumental in M&S achieving some considerable cost savings throughout the last financial year. They have been extremely proactive in suggesting improvements to the current processes and are now seen very much as our recruitment partner for both contract and permanent"
