Temp and Contractor Agencies

Temporary and Contract Recruitment

Our Temporary and Contract workforce are sourced via Advantage xPO (Managed Service Provider - MSP), also known as Advantage Resourcing Team (ART).

Advantage xPO should be used for ALL of our Non-Permanent workforce requirements, which helps us to mitigate against any risks and issues, such as overcharging, inappropriate insurances and incomplete vetting.

Advantage xPO has a team based at Nationwide House, Swindon. This is to ensure we receive a quick and responsive service for our managers in the area of Non-Permanent worker engagement and administration.

Preferred Supplier List

When we do work with Agencies we operate a preferred supplier list which is managed by our MSP, Advantage xPO, so unfortunately, it is not possible to accept Candidates from every Agency who contact us.

Advantage xPO will work hard to build good working relationships with our Recruitment partners and will ensure that you are briefed in full before having a role released to you. Should you be accepted onto our PSL, you would then be given access to our portal.

When Advantage xPO feel that an Agency could support us, the relevant vacancies would be opened up to you via the portal. Any candidates that you put forward to us need to be met personally and you must ensure they are fully aware of the role in question.

At Nationwide we work by our PRIDE values, and hope you would as well, ensuring that your approach would fit with what we look for in our working relationships. This means if you are looking to submit a Candidate, you should look to do this via the portal, and not going directly to the Hiring Manager.

If you are looking to join the PSL that Advantage xPO manage, we appreciate you are trying to build relationships but please don’t contact Hiring Managers directly, come through Advantage xPO by emailing nbssupplychain@advantageresourcing.com.

We don’t accept cold calls or speculative CVs, if we receive a speculative CV this falls outside of our terms and you will not be eligible for a fee.
