What are the key things the public sector wants from an external recruiter?

First and foremost, it’s value for money. Second comes trust, honesty, and integrity. And finally, underpinning everything is the ability to find the people you need; ensuring they have the talent, skills, attitudes and commitment to succeed in today’s varied and demanding public sector work environments.

Cedar offers all these things – and more. Our demonstrable track record in finance, procurement, change and transformation recruitment helps support vital public services, whilst complying with all necessary standards and regulations. Crucially, we’re on the Crown Commercial Service Framework (RM6160) for Non-Clinical Temporary & Fixed-Term staff in Lot 2 - Corporate Functions, so any public sector organisation, anywhere in the country, can engage to use our specialist niche services, simply efficiently and at an agreed, highly cost-effective price, in any non-clinical area to recruit both PAYE and limited company temporary workers, including fixed-term appointments.
