GRI, the UK’s leading neutral-vendor service provider for non-permanent hires including temporary workers and supply staff across educational establishments, has won a place on the CPC framework.
Crescent Purchasing Consortium is owned and run by the further education sector.
Following an in-depth tender process, GRI successfully achieved a place on Lot 16 - Master Vendor, with full marks awarded for our ability to meet future customer requirements.
GRI’s tried and tested model empowers education providers to achieve a more beneficial relationship with their recruitment agency suppliers. Providers outsource their agency management to GRI reducing both costs, by up to 14%, and time spent.
GRI additionally streamlines direct supply, supporting individual schools/FE and HE establishments or clusters/academies to manage their black book of supply teachers more effectively.
Most importantly, GRI focuses on monitoring and delivering robust compliance standards driving up the quality of staff supplied.
Andrew Preston, Chief Executive of GRI, said:
“The CPC Framework Award demonstrates our ongoing commitment and ability to provide the best possible service.
“Our position as a preferred partner will allow us to support FE providers to create budget efficiencies by negotiating better agency supply outcomes both in terms of quality and cost. Importantly, working with us will ensure that both financial and time resources can be returned to the frontline of educational attainment, as opposed to managing the demands of time-consuming temporary recruitment.”
