In-house Recruitment Awards: Hudson RPO partner Sharp takes Silver

The Sharp-Hudson RPO partnership: technology focus


The team celebrates Sharp’s track record at the In-house Recruitment Awards.

Sharp design and manufacture one-of-a-kind electronics. As a Japanese multinational corporation, Sharp’s employer brand had been relatively unformed in the UK and Europe.

For many years, Sharp had relied on traditional recruitment methods, but this approach was costing the business more than £750,000 per annum.

To achieve greater efficiency and cost savings, Sharp selected Hudson RPO. Within weeks, our team had designed the processes to attract sales professionals, engineers, technicians, and corporate specialists.

From the start, we installed on-site recruitment leads in the UK and Sweden, and recently in France.

Additional support comes from Hudson RPO’s Centre of Excellence.

Sharp also partnered with Hudson RPO to launch a new Sharp careers site. It provides localised content to attract candidates across EMEA, using 10 unique locales.

Furthermore, thanks to the addition of 21 employee videos in native languages, prospective candidates are instantly introduced to life at Sharp and a range of career paths.
