  • Morson shortlisted alongside MAG for Best Supplier Partnership

Morson is delighted to be shortlisted alongside Manchester Airport Group (MAG) in the FIRM Awards in the category of Best Supplier Partnership.

With over 8,800 members globally, the Forum for In-House Recruitment Managers (FIRM) are the leading global membership organisation for talent acquisition professionals and provides tactical and strategic insight and support.

Manchester Airports Group (MAG) owns and operates Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands Airports. It jets 59 million+ passengers to more than 250 destinations each year and as the largest UK owned airport operator, it contributes more than £7bn to the country’s economy, supporting more than 130,000 supply chain jobs.

In October 2018, Morson International was reappointed by MAG to lead the recruitment of all interim staff across its three airports for a further three years after filling 750 vacancies over the last four years; including engineering, HR, procurement, digital and more.

In order to remove inefficiencies and streamline the fragmented nature of the in-house recruitment process, Morson proposed the full-time deployment of experienced and appropriately skilled resource on MAG’s own site to ensure successful delivery, thus becoming a true extension of the business. The months and years that followed saw Morson embed in the new recruitment model, build relationships with hiring managers as well as refine and deliver consistent, quality service and streamline MAG’s tier 2 supply.

Moving forwards, Morson have been tasked in delivering ongoing cost efficiencies, added value and strengthening the brand’s EVP.

Testimonials from MAG praised Morson’s flexible, agile service delivery of a bespoke solution, as well as understanding the culture at the business while creating huge cost savings. Other testimonies highlighted Morson’s ability to work with MAG as they went through a number of operating and process changes, championing and supporting those changes.

The FIRM award finalists are announced at an event on Thursday 21st March 2019 in London.
