your expert recruitment partner


We are The Outsourced Recruitment Company

In 2017 our founder Laura O’Driscoll started working as an Interim Consultant to support organisations with their recruitment projects and short-term needs.
Laura O'Drisoll, Recruitment, Outsourced Recruitment.

Laura uses her experience of in-house recruitment to help build recruitment functions, improve existing functions or deliver and large growth plans.

Having managed agency providers for years, Laura was sure that there had to be a better way to outsource recruitment. The traditional business model of high-cost percentage placement fees has given way to some poor behaviours over the years, and clients and candidates were crying out for change, looking for alternatives to recruitment agencies.

Our Approach


We show courage in our choices and are confident in our ability to succeed through our determination and daring approach.


We are not afraid to challenge perceptions and break the mould. We are brave in our endeavours to deliver brilliance and innovation.


We understand the recruitment process and the impact it can have. We are proud to deliver our service with empathy and a passion to bring honesty to the forefront of the recruitment industry, a long-overdue change.


EMPLOYERS – Our mission is to provide a real point of difference in the recruitment industry – we do this through delivering real, honest and valuable advice and delivering outstanding service that you can trust. Working in partnership, we work with you to ensure you access the top talent to help your business grow.



Taking care of our candidates and our clients using our honest and straight talking approach. We understand that every client has different needs and wants. That’s why we tailor our service to suit your specific requirements.


Our combination of in-house recruitment and agency experience means we help our clients in the long term to be more self-sufficient. We work closely with our clients to ensure they get exactly what they need from their recruitment process.


Our Recruitment on Subscription package allows us to provide you with a full recruitment infrastructure at a fraction of the price.


  • The cost is not determined by the salary – you can always trust the advice you are given on the salary package and the candidate offer negotiation process.
  • You take full ownership of the data – we do not ‘own’ candidate CVs, you pay for our time and as such we will hand across the shortlist to you.
  • If you make more than one placement you won’t be hit with extra fees – as you own the shortlist, if you want to make multiple appointments, or revisit the shortlist in 6 months, you can do so without fear of incurring additional fees.
