Otley recruitment company scoops awards honour
11:00am Friday 11th January 2013 in Local news
Otley-based online recruitment company Blue Octopus has scooped a “highly commended” trophy at the prestigious Jobsite Awards 2012.
Liam Coleman, joint managing director, said: “I am one very proud co-founder of what is an exceptional business, made up of the UK's finest in the industry. The hard work is paying off year on year - thanks to you all.”
In its early days in 2010, the firm won the most improved recruiter award for low volume.
The next year, it moved categories to high volume and won Best Candidate Communication and Best Recruiter awards.
As there were only two awards and the format of the awards had changed, Blue Octopus was at a disadvantage, but was happy to be among the UK’s top recruiters in the country.
Kelly Laurenson, operations manager, said: “It was a great honour to represent Blue Octopus’ client delivery team at the jobsite Recruit Rank awards.
“To be with the top ten recruitment companies within the UK is a great achievement in itself, but to walk away with the Highly Commended Recruitment Company award was incredible.”
This was down to high appraisals given by candidates that used Blue Octopus, with the firm saying it proved clients had confidence in the service they had received
