Client Testimonials

We’ve been delivering a top quality online recruitment solution for over five years and in that time we have continually provided our clients with a standard of service that they have really loved. But don’t just take our word - read what they have to say for themselves…

Blue Octopus is our chosen recruitment partner because of the fantastic relationships we have with them. They are honest and offer exceptional service. They always deliver on their promises. On top of this their recruitment technology is the best solution we have seen. It’s flexible and can be adapted to suit the ever changing needs of our business.

Noel, Head of Human Resources, Benson for Beds

I’m pleasantly surprised and impressed with Blue Octopus. The results have been highly positive, we have successfully recruited all our recent hires using their campaigns. The administrators are speedy, efficient and friendly and overall Blue Octopus can’t do enough for us. I feel completely supported and to be honest this recruitment malarkey is becoming a joy!

Ann , Resouring Business PartnerMyCSP

Blue Octopus saved us time and money from day one. The expert service team have done a fabulous job in creating an appealing careers micro-site which has attracted top quality candidates, in a range of roles, that we would otherwise never have reached. I’d recommend Blue Octopus to any organisation looking to save costs and modernise their approach to recruitment.

Josie, Regional HR Partner, Cats Protection

We love the way Blue Octopus work. They are genuine and honest and offer us recruitment advice. However they can help us, they will. We have achieved fantastic results since we have started using them and I would recommend them to others.

Samantha, HR Advisor, Saint Gobain Building Distrubution

Blue Octopus is our preferred recruitment service. They never fail to deliver the right candidate. They are professional, efficient and cost effective. Pentalver highly recommend them in this highly competitive and cost driven climate. Thank you to all at Blue Octopus.

Stephanie, HR Business Partner, Pentalver Ltd

Blue Octopus have offered Seashell Trust a flexible way to manage our recruitment needs at a realistic cost. The team are friendly and approachable and always willing to answer any questions we have. The admin assistance with bulk recruitment is particularly useful to our department. I would recommend Blue Octopus as a way to help with ongoing recruitment.

Denise, HRD Officer, Seashell Trust

We have been delighted with the results, especially the fantastic cost savings. If we were to use a traditional agency we would pay thirteen times more. Blue Octopus give us fantastic customer service and admin support. It makes them an invaluable supplier to Bunzl.

Tamie, Head of Human Resources, Bunzl Greenham

We see Blue Octopus as an expert extension of our HR team. They always show a keen interest in understanding how we operate, what's important to us and what our business needs. We feel this gives us the very best opportunity to attract high quality candidates. We trust the team implicitly. It’s a low risk solution and it’s certainly worked for us. We wouldn't want to go anywhere else.

Teresa, Head of Talent, Rexel

Blue Octopus have helped us greatly in attracting good quality candidates for roles that historically have been problematic for us. The open and honest dialogue has been instrumental in making the process both professional and efficient. Their understanding of our roles and communication is excellent. We are more than happy with the excellent, efficient, cost effective service from Blue Octopus.
