Our external supply chains are made up of local experts, uniquely positioned within their respective sectors. Within our external supply chain, we prioritise our local partners before allowing work to be transferred to national suppliers.

A Progressive Approach to Supply Chain Management

  • We work with fewer suppliers than other Master Vendors – This means that our suppliers receive a bigger commercial opportunity through working with us and are more dedicated to helping satisfy our client’s needs.
  • We Don’t compete with our Supply Chain – We don’t compete with our suppliers, instead we leverage their expertise to provide our clients with the best possible service.
  • Best in Class – We pick and choose the sector suppliers we work with. Our suppliers are experts in what they do and deeply understand the sectors they operate in.
  • Collaborative Working Arrangements – The RSR MV approach to supply chain management allows us to find the highest quality staff for our clients quickly and effectively.

Scared to Change? Don’t Be

The RSR MV client relationship management team will provide you with a straightforward customer on-boarding experience from day one.

The team is supported by our vetting and audit, agency worker care, finance and supplier management teams as well as a bespoke, cutting edge technology platform for the management of work flows and the generation of management information.

It’s Up to You

Like building blocks – you choose which shape you’d like us to build your service model into. The RSG internal supply chain base of HR, training, media and outcome-focused business process outsource services provide fit-for-emergency-services ancillary and modular services.


Our local, embedded client relationship management teams have a deep understanding of the Emergency Service, Criminal Justice and Regulatory Service sectors, allowing us to address skill-set scarcities and find you the perfect fit.

However, we like to put our money where our mouth is, so we encourage all of our prospective clients to speak to our existing ones to find out how we operate.
