Manpower’s Latest RPO Deal is a Biggie

For those who thought Manpower’s contract with the state of South Dakota was big, try Australia on for size.

ManpowerGroup has landed a contract with the Australian Defence Force, one that’s worth at least $400 million for five years, and could even get extended to five more. It is an extension of an existing relationship and will involve soup-to-nuts recruiting: recruitment marketing, medical and psychological assessments, offers, and more.

The Aussie Navy, Army, and Air Force handle about 20,000-40,000 candidates annually out of 16 national recruiting centers. These candidates include everything from sailors to soldiers to engineers, doctors, lawyers, and pilots.

The company recently “crushed” Wall Street expectations of its earnings.
