“Blue Oak Recruitment take the time to gain a full understanding of my requirements on each and every placement. This has been reflected in the high calibre of candidates they offer each time I have worked with them. The in-depth screening process they apply has ensured I have had an excellent range of candidates to interview which have always led to successful appointments.”
I have dealt with Blue Oak Recruitment since the businesses establishment in 2007. From day one I have found the associated services to be structured yet personalised and second to none.
From the initial brief and the understanding of our needs through to the final selection processes and initial new placement support. The work rate, the ability to achieve the agreed timelines, the passion and determination to provide what we need is blatantly obvious and unrelenting?
Irrespective of wether the the recruitment is part of our strategic business development plans or the hasty recruitment of an unplanned vacancy, the processes, proposed candidates and the final outcomes are exactly what the business has needed... I probably don't say thank you enough!
" With many years working in FMCG, both in a capacity as a hiring manager and as a candidate. I have used the services of many recruitment specialists. I cannot speak highly enough of Blue Oak Recruitment, and the support they gave me securing my next role. I have never experienced such positive uplifting support, and the passion and attention to detail to ensure the hiring process went smoothly."
