Edinburgh Castle, Scotland

Edinburgh, ScotlandRecruitment Consultants

Edinburgh is a thriving global city rich with culture, history, and enterprises focused on the future.

Despite ongoing market uncertainties, the capital city of Scotland enjoys a robust hiring outlook.

Yet, Edinburgh-based companies face ongoing recruitment challenges. A talent-rich city, engaging top candidates here requires targeted strategies. And with hiring on the rise, the competition for talent here is fierce.

Since 1999, Hudson RPO has improved workforce management at large and small companies around the world. Through flexible partnerships, our talent specialists elevate employer brand awareness and hiring quality and speed, all while lowering recruitment costs.

Partner with us, and you’ll discover a suite of high-touch service offerings, including end-to-end RPO, project RPO, managed services, sourcing, employer branding, recruitment technology, and talent consultancy. We specialise in recruitment for the financial services, technology, FinTech, life sciences, FMCT, and manufacturing industries.

We’re committed to helping businesses drive growth across Edinburgh and regional business districts, such as Bonnyrigg, Linlithgow, South Queensferry, and Bilston.

What's your talent acquisition strategy?

Today, the answer is often both. Companies benefit from collaborative service solutions that harness the strengths of agencies, along with the industry insights and long-range strategies of recruitment process outsourcing partnerships.

RPO specialists control agency costs through oversight and accountability throughout the talent acquisition process. They also deliver essential expertise in recruitment technology, industry-specific candidate insights, and employer branding capabilities. This approach earns the trust of candidates considering a career in Edinburgh, while keeping business outcomes in focus at all times.

Edinburgh is a dynamic and growing hub for the tech, financial services, life sciences, and FinTech industries.

The city is also home to Centres of Excellence for many industries, including the renowned Edinburgh Centre for Robotics, university-based centres, and Hudson RPO’s own Sourcing Centre of Excellence. Candidates here expect excellence in recruitment.

Our talent specialists partner with you to design workforce solutions tailored to your business and your industry. Our workforce strategies answer your company’s needs, whether it’s a polished employer brand, personalized engagement, or recruitment technology updates.

We also stay attuned to market fluctuations in your industry, so we can scale up or down as you require.
