Client Case Study: Nottinghamshire Police

Understand how we can help our clients to achieve their goals and meet their needs

Helping the East Midlands 5-Force joint collaboration deliver a NICHE RMS Implementation ahead of schedule.

With such large system implementations typically taking 18-24 months and being very costly, g2 worked closely with the programme manager to provide a team of experts that could speed up the operation and save public money by halving the project duration.

The Recruitment Challenge

Nottinghamshire Police were delivering a critical transformation programme, the implementation of Niche RMS. The goal was to create a single IT platform to connect five regional forces by allowing easy access to data for all officers. This required a complex software transition and vast data migration. Prior to g2’s support, Notts Police had used contractors from various suppliers and struggled to gain traction due to poor work ethic and performance standards. In addition to this, the initial strategic delivery partner had been removed from site after multiple red flags had not prompted improvements. This is largely due to a lack of understanding of the critical police vetting process that delayed contractor mobilisation.

The g2 Solution

G2 got straight to work by taking detailed job specifications for all roles in the team and quickly
discovered that there would be requirements for software developers, network specialists and IT support to ensure a smooth implementation. Due to the g2 database containing an extensive police contractor network, it was possible to provide three candidates for each role.
Most importantly, with a deep understanding of the NPP3 level vetting required, g2 were able to work very closely with HR to ensure that all necessary process was followed and all candidates were cleared to start working well in advance of their first day.

The Result

All candidates that were offered started and stayed for the duration of their contract. This was due to g2’s rigorous recruitment methods and the time taken at the start to find out the right blend of skills required. As a result, the team gelled well and were able to work at a speed that not only got the project back on track, but actually delivered it in half the time expected.

The implementation was a success and because of the quality of the service provided by g2, there were referrals from other programme managers with their recruitment needs, which lead to further placements.

g2 continue to work with Nottinghamshire Police to this day and have engaged with other
Constabularies and Police forces across the UK off the back of this success.
