CONSULTATIVE SOLUTION DESIGN
Our consultations use advanced analytics to design a tailored solution to fit your unique business
Operam Managed Solutions was created by First Recruitment Group CEO, John Urpi, and Managed Solutions expert Simon Woodhouse. It is an independent company that is part of the First Recruitment Group.
John and Simon each bring over 20 years’ managed solutions experience, overseeing long-term solutions for large clients in the technical engineering sector. In fact they first worked together whilst setting up Europe’s first technical engineering sector Managed Service Programme 20 years ago and they are back together for this new direction. Over a decade ago, they co-founded the Energy sector’s first International Managed Service, operating in 3 of the world’s continents.
Having worked in the industry for so long, they saw an opportunity to offer a different kind of managed solution. One that is completely unique to each client, matching their individual needs perfectly. They could see that through fresh thinking and a boldness to embrace new technology and innovation, businesses could evolve and progress through their workforces. Because let’s face it – the right staff are the life-blood of a business.
How we are different
- Every solution is different
Why? Because every business is different. You will never get a “one-size-fits-all” recommendation. We work in collaboration with you to design unique solutions that enhance your processes, ensures compliance and ultimately reduce any risk involved in managing a large workforce.
- We are in it for the long haul
We don’t believe in setting up a solution and leaving you with it. We will manage your workforce to reduce your workload, freeing up your time for more strategic business. Not only will you get short term results, but the benefits continue to increase over time. Your goals are our goals as we work in partnership, on a cost neutral basis.
- We are scaleable
Because we are aiming to be your long term partner we know that workforce demand can increase and decrease over different points in time. All our solutions can be adapted for these changes.
Operam is an independent business, meaning it acts in the best interest of the client without bias. However because of its connection with First Recruitment as part of the wider group, clients can quickly access a huge talent pool internationally if required.

I have worked with Simon as a supplier for nearly 20 years. During this time, I have always found that the solutions are very effective for suppliers. He instils the right balance for both the client and supplier, where the services are fair, open and responsive. There is no doubt that the client and the supply relationships are their focus. These are services we are happy to support wherever we can.
MD Recruitment Company
I have worked with Simon Woodhouse for over 10 years and during this time I have received first class service as a recruiter. The flow of information has always kept us in touch with requirements.
The solution (both the technology & the team assembled) were intuitive and responsive to our needs. The job descriptions have been detailed and meaningful. It is apparent that Simon has an excellent knowledge of market trends and client/candidate expectations. So as a recruiter I have found that this information has been invaluable in sourcing the right people for the end client. It has been evident that Simon forms first class relationships with both the supplying recruitment agencies and the end client.
I would recommend Simon to any potential client or recruitment company.
When presented with a challenge to support our Permanent Recruitment challenge, Simon responded with a very cost effective, and comprehensive solution, that we relied heavily upon during a major restructuring exercise. So much so, that once the initial phase came to an end we retained the service. The support provided to the HR teams and the hiring managers was second to none, and it became an integral part of our operations.
We had an opportunity to restructure our approach in regards to how we utilised contract labour and recruitment. The burden to the company had become significant, and major change was required. The experience Simon bought to the Change Management project was a key component behind its success. The level of buy-in to the program from within our organisation, and down into the supply chain was a credit to Simon and his team.
I have known Simon for 20 years and in that time Simon has been my colleague, my manager and my mentor. Simon is a very kind and thoughtful person, but will ensure the job is done to the best of his and his team’s ability. His management style is one of a consultative approach and leadership, allowing the team to be part of the bigger picture and ownership of the project in hand, but being there for support and guidance when required. He has a very comprehensive understanding of Procurement and the Managed Service Process, which has allowed him to manage some very successful implementations and on-going business. A great asset to any organisation.
