Blue Octopus Nominated for 4 Prestigious Industry Awards

Blue Octopus Nominated for 4 Prestigious Industry Awards

For the second year running Otley based flat fee recruitment experts Blue Octopus ( have been named finalists in categories across the board in the RecruitRank Awards. The awards established by Jobsite six years ago, serve to recognise the recruitment organisations that have received the best candidate feedback over the course of the year.

Having scooped the prestigious “Most Improved Recruiter” award in the Low Volume Jobsite User class last year, the company are now in contention for 4 out of the 5 awards in the High Volume Jobsite User class. This step up from low to high volume user classification demonstrates just how much Blue Octopus have grown over the past year and Director Chris Coleman is over the moon with the organisation’s nominations:

It’s been an incredible first couple of years that we’ve had here at Blue Octopus and to be finalists for the 2nd year running is a great reward for the team’s hard work and effort. Our goal has always been to be a leading recruitment service provider, not only for clients but also candidates too – and being named finalists again shows that our candidates value the service we provide. Let’s hope we can come away with another Winner’s trophy like we did in our first year.

All finalists in the RecruitRank Awards have earned their position as a result of feedback provided by candidates who have used their service over the course of the year, and the fact that the awards reward those who have demonstrated value to the end user as opposed to relying on a panel of judges has resulted in the RecruitRank Awards developing a unique prestige in the industry. Keith Potts, CEO of Jobsite acknowledges the long hard journey to success in the awards in his congratulatory statement to Blue Octopus following their victory last year:

“With several thousand recruitment consultancies eligible for inclusion in the RecruitRank Awards every year, Blue Octopus stand-out as an example of providing exceptional customer service. There is a lot we can learn from the RecruitRank Award winners, who epitomise best practice in the area of customer service. Jobsite congratulates Blue Octopus on their accolade.”

In this year’s awards Blue Octopus have been named finalists in the following categories:

Best Candidate Communication: High volume Jobsite user

Best Understanding of Candidate Needs: High volume Jobsite user

Best Industry Knowledge: High volume Jobsite user

Best Recruiter: High volume Jobsite user

The winners of the 2011 RecruitRank Awards will be announced on 15th November.
