Aegon UK appoints resourcing specialist Sanderson 

Posted: 25th March 2019

Edinburgh-headquartered pensions and investment provider Aegon UK has chosen independent resourcing specialist Sanderson as its recruiting partner for contractors and consultants.

Sanderson will manage the entire contractor and temporary worker population for Aegon, which has locations across the UK.

The three-year contract will provide around 360 contingent workers and run across the whole business.

A key part of this is ensuring a central point of governance and compliance is created by Sanderson, which in turn drives efficiencies and a consistent recruitment practice across Aegon UK as a whole.

Gill Scott, HR Director for Aegon UK, said: “We were aware of a need to centralise our recruitment solution by implementing a standardised resourcing model and that central to this was mitigating risk and providing transparency.

“Our recruitment process is driven by evolving technology and the need to bring top class customer service and choice and Sanderson bring the ideal experience and trust we are looking for.”

Sanderson, an independent firm headquartered in Bristol but with major offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow, is one of the UK’s leading outsource providers for IT and financial services.

Andrew Morton, Sanderson Regional Director for Scotland, said: “We are delighted to be joining Aegon UK at this exciting stage of their journey and are looking forward to developing the teams in line with their future ambitions.”
