The latest thinking, news and events from the world of Recruitment

HR Heads to Investigate the Future of Police Recruitment


Multi-Force Shared Services (MFSS) and West Yorkshire Police will be sharing the latest insights into Police recruitment at a free-to-attend breakfast seminar, hosted by WCN, a leading e-Recruitment software provider and specialist to the UK Police forces. The event will be taking place at the BMA House, London on 13th November 2015.

In light of the impending spending review by the Chancellor on November 25th, West Yorkshire Police’s Resourcing Manager, Danny Wilks and Mark Houlihan, Business Development Manager at WCN, will explore the important role technology will play in further reducing the cost of recruitment, whilst remaining effective and compliant, by streamlining the processes.

Mark Houlihan comments:

“Every Police force in England and Wales is preparing for major budget cuts, so it’s vital that each part of their business is streamlined.  Online technology has revolutionised the way the recruitment market is able to work, from the integration of procurement frameworks right through to video interviewing.

“It is likely redeployment will be a key factor, as it’s the best and most cost effective way to retain the most experienced and high quality staff. Statistics have shown it can have cost savings of up to £30,000 for every position filled. If you have the right technology in place, you will be able to maximise the recruitment process ensuring you end up with the right candidate for the right role.”

Michael Drummond, Commercial Development Manager at Multi-Force Shared Services (MFSS), will discuss the importance of a shared service and explain how the MFSS was initially established, via unique collaboration between Cheshire Constabulary and Northamptonshire Police.

Drummond will explore the vision this partnership shares, along with the benefits it can bring, including efficiency, latest HR techniques and cost savings and detailing how shared services can develop in order to meet current and future marketing trends and how they can grow moving forward.
