From education to employment

BPS World Is Changing Lives Alongside The Progress Group



Global recruitment partner, BPS World (@bps_world), has announced a full RPO agreement with The Progress Group, a leading provider of education and training. 

The partnership has begun with immediate effect and will encompass end-to-end management of the recruitment process, across all business units within the Group.

BPS World’s resourcing function will be responsible for the successful attraction, recruitment and retention of employees across the Group.

The Maidenhead-headquartered RPO will also provide a concierge account management service, including on-site presence and assisted interviewing.

As part of the deal, The Progress Group will also benefit from the creative capability within BPS World’s Brand Studio.

This will involve collaborative consultancy focussed on the Group’s employer brand development, as well as creative execution of campaigns and recruitment marketing.

Collectively, BPS World’s solution will be designed to enhance the candidate experience and elevate the Group and its employer brands during a period of ambitious and rapid growth.

Simon Conington, CEO at BPS World:

“I am delighted to agree this exciting partnership with The Progress Group. BPS’ heritage is in providing the people who design and build tomorrow’s world. This rings especially true for those working within education and training, as we all explore ways to create a better future. The wider education sector has been a key focus of ours for a number of years and I’m thrilled to be able to expand upon our partnerships in this area.

“It gives myself and the BPS team immense pleasure to be on this shared journey. The Group’s clear and ambitious leadership has set the course for great success and we will act as proud partners, working tirelessly together to accelerate the Group’s growth and further enhance its position within a competitive marketplace.“

Jayne Worthington, CEO at The Progress Group:

“As a Group, we have ambitious growth plans and BPS World will help us achieve these. Our business is built on talent and we are passionate about attracting the best, and then growing our colleagues in order to empower them to achieve their potential.

“We want our colleagues to not only have the skills we need, but to share our values and purpose of changing lives. We are committed to rebalancing society and leaving it better then how we found it, and our people are at the core for achieving that. I firmly believe that our exciting new partnership with BPS will help us to articulate our values and purpose through innovative recruitment marketing strategies, helping to set us apart from other education and training providers.”
