managed services

Neutral vendor managed services from giant are underpinned by decades of specialist experience and proprietary industry-leading technology. You can improve talent, save costs and mitigate risk. It’s win-win-win!

As a neutral manager with no agency recruiting business but with links to multiple candidate sources, giant is well placed to advise on your contingent staffing strategy. Our intuitive software ensures there are defined processes and helps you access the best talent quickly, at the most competitive rates. You cut costs, improve quality, save time, minimise worker-misclassification risk and gain control by real-time visibility on spend analysis.

After a consultative review of your requirements and current processes, giant can advise on the optimum model for you to attract candidates. This may be directly sourced talent or indirectly sourced candidates from recruitment agencies where we’ve built hundreds of trusted partnerships over 25 years.

For indirectly sourced candidates we will establish a panel of preferred agency suppliers who undergo regular compliance audits and work to agreed service levels which we establish, review and manage on your behalf. Worker rates and margins are set by us in consultation with you based on market intelligence ensuring you always get the best talent at the most competitive rates.

cloud-based software

All giant managed services are backed up by our proprietary cloud-based software, to ensure key processes are automated. End-to-end or on a modular basis and with or without our managed services the software will efficiently control your processes and workers – from applicant tracking, vendor management, screening and on-boarding, to paperless timesheet and expense management, invoicing (including self-billing to suppliers), payroll and payments. Dashboards are configurable (and you get dedicated MI) while the mobile-friendly software can be integrated with any other platform.


risk management

Legislation and case law is a complex and ever-changing area that demands robust processes and ongoing audit and review to minimise your financial and reputational risk. At giant, we anticipate and advise on changes in legislation, particularly tax, employment, employment status and GDPR risks. We offer you expert advice on the correct employment status classification of your contractors with adherence to IR35, Criminal Finances Act and Off-Payroll Working legislation, and of course we advise on the risks of non-compliance.

Our adherence to the rigorous international security standard ISO27001 ensures we can accept responsibility for GDPR so you have no financial and reputational risk.
