Did you know NSS RPO provides Proposal Support?
You’re a Proposal Manager and just caught wind of a massive program with your largest customer that will be competitively bid in the next 3-6 months. To win and become a Prime, the customer requires at least five Lead Subject Matter Experts in your proposal. You know you can win this. This is a game changer. Being giddy is an understatement. With the right people, the contract is yours.
You walk into the Recruiting Director’s office and ask for a recruiter to focus on this proposal for the next 2-3 months at a minimum. From your perspective, this is a perfectly reasonable request – if you win, the payoff is enormous. The Recruiting Director looks you square in the face and says no one on her team has the bandwidth to help you. They’re all working on funded positions and the Hiring Managers they support would be up in arms if they lost even a fraction of their current levels of support.
What do you do? Your hands are tied and you can see things from the Recruiting Department’s perspective. They’re overworked as it is and you just tried to throw on a huge pile of work on them. Everyone is stretched thin these days. But where does that leave you?
Enter NSS RPO, a Recruitment Process Outsourcing firm that has been providing staffing support to DC based government contractors since 2009. NSS RPO has supported proposal efforts for hundreds of diverse large government customers, ranging from civilian to defense and intelligence agencies. Our company is different in that they not only provide a senior level recruiter but the required tools as well.
NSS RPO has a database of over 200,000 cleared, technical resumes along with access to every major job board in the cleared and un-cleared space. Each recruiter receives daily support from one of our resume sourcers, giving them more time to speak and network with candidates. The support is 100% virtual and the recruiter works directly with the Proposal or Program Manager. This relationship functions completely outside of the Recruiting department so no coordination is needed as this is your resource. You call the shots and you give the direction.
Recently, NSS RPO helped a small company win a prime seat on a large NGA contract. In 3 months, our recruiter had 37 candidates sign contingent offer letters. When the firm won, the vast majority became employees in the first 6 months of the contract.
Our model is unique in its flexibility, providing surge support that can be turned on and off at any point. If you have a huge hiring push from January to May but things slowdown in the summer, that works just fine with us. We can pick up where we left off in September.
Best of luck on your next proposal. We’d love to help you win.
