Blue Octopus was founded in January 2010 by Yorkshire brothers Chris and Liam Coleman, with the aim of creating a transparent and unique fixed fee recruitment service. Having gained many years’ experience working for a number of recruitment agencies and online recruiters, the brothers realised that they could improve on what was currently being offered, and their great passion for the industry led them to create Blue Octopus Recruitment.
