Saving Tameside College moneyWe’ve saved hundreds of companies significant amounts of money on their recruitment over the years. We recently showed you what we’ve done for animal welfare charity Cats Protection…and here’s how we’ve helped out Tameside College.

Prior to coming on board with Blue Octopus in 2013, Tameside College used a combination of ads in regional press and job advertising agencies to publicise their roles. However these solutions lacked the service side of what we are able to offer them. So now their solution involves scoring and copywriting, all carried out by Blue Octopus.


Right away we made a difference in the College’s recruitment process. The improvement was clear as not only were they getting a more complete service, but they were actually paying less than they had previously.

In two and a half years, we’ve saved them over £1 million based on standard agency fees and average salaries.


We’re planning to take the College’s recruitment even further in the near future with a custom-built careers site. Having provided 15 sites to clients last year alone, we’re confident that it will provide a real boost in terms of visibility, branding and candidate experience when it’s launched.

Tameside College is far from the only educational establishment that we work with – among our educational clients are Furness College, Kingston College, Blackpool and The Fylde College, YMCA Training and nearly 50 others. So it’s safe to say we have a great sense of how to recruit for even the trickiest of roles.
