I would like to take this opportunity to thank you, Vicky and all at Blues Point for this opportunity and the excellent service you provided me. I had no single complaint or problem.
I was introduced to Blues Point when I was looking for a new role myself. I was unsuccessful in my pursuit for that role, however I did recommend Blues Point to one of my friends. My friend managed to secure a new role thanks to the help of Blues Point. After 2 months of him still being at that job I received a cheque from Blues Point for £250. I would definitely use Blues Point again in the future.
I was contacted by Blues Point regarding a permanent job – at the time I wasn’t looking for a new role but I mentioned to the consultant that I knew someone with similar skills that might be interested. They mentioned a referrals scheme whereby I would be paid a ‘finder’s fee’ if the person I recommended was placed successfully. In fact he was successful and so once his probationary period had been completed, I got a cheque in the post.
Blues Point found me my ideal role shortly after being made redundant and their processes were second to none. I supplied Blues Point with the names and contact details of my ex-colleagues who had also been made redundant and whom I would recommend. A month later, I received a call from Blues Point confirming that they had successfully placed one of my ex-colleagues and a cheque for £250 would be in the post shortly.
I found the test to be difficult but not impossible, and it correctly identified my technical strengths – and weaknesses! Overall, it seemed very fair, and the results document is a good thing to show at future interviews.
I’ve had a lot of experiences of agencies over the years, mostly from a recruiter perspective, rather than recruitee.
Blues Point exceeded my experience of recruitment agencies. They contacted me about a single job, which was a perfect match for my experience.
A short telephone interview confirmed that both the company and I were a good match for each other.
Blues Point ensured that I was kept informed of the progress of the recruitment process at all stages.
I have already recommended Blues Point to friends and colleagues and will continue to do so. Both for those recruiting and those in search of new opportunities.
I highly recommend Alex and Blues Point as a recruiter. Out of the many recruiters I approached whilst looking for a new role, Blues Point and particularly Alex stood out as the most professional and most likely to find me a role that best matched my skills and requirements.
I received a personal service, including an interview to help me with my interview technique prior to my first job interview, and was kept informed of my progress from submitting my CV, through to accepting my new job. Alex has also helped other ex-colleagues find new roles and I would recommend his services to anyone.
A great recruitment agent and would recommend to anyone, Very honest and always returns phones calls when promised, which is a breath of fresh air when dealing with agencies. She was very knowledgeable about the role I was discussing and nothing was too much trouble.
Do not hesitate to use her if you have a role to fill I am sure she will find the right candidate as she does actually care.
Blues Point is definitely the best agency that I have used in over 15 years as an IT contractor, they make a genuine effort to find the best people for a particular role. In my experience most other agencies pick their candidates almost at random.
Since leaving that particular contract I have used Matt as a source of advice and found him to be extremely helpful.
Steph is professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable in the area of IT recruitment. She was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steph to others looking for a new career opportunity or to any business looking to source IT staff for their organisation.
