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!
