What is a Managed Service?


A Managed Service is when a specialist recruitment agency takes full responsibility for managing the recruitment of temporary staff.


From sourcing candidates, managing a supply chain of recruitment agencies and engaging with the temporary workforce, Affinity Workforce recruits and fills temporary vacancy requests for teaching and non-teaching staff in Multi-Academy Trusts.


Affinity Workforce Solutions delivers Managed Service Solutions via the Crown Commercial Service (CCS) framework, which provides schools with an open, fair and transparent route when hiring temporary staff.
