Blueprint Recruitment celebrates 10th anniversary
Blueprint Recruitment, a Fife recruitment company, is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a £16m turnover.
Since its inception in 2007, Glenrothes-based Blueprint Recruitment has grown from turning over £1m in year one to reaching a £16m turnover as it marks its 10th year in business.
Ronnie Harris, managing director, who benefits from 28 years’ experience in the recruitment sector, commented, “Because Blueprint is privately owned, we are able to provide a highly personal service to our clients, which is unrivalled by many larger companies. Our people make the difference and our team has built a reputation for providing an efficient and caring service.”
With a dedicated team of 20 staff, including five ‘home-grown’ trainees, Blueprint says it has a track record of working with clients and partners to deliver bespoke solutions tailored to clients’ needs. As a recruitment partner, the company is not only focused on pinpointing the right people for its clients, but helping them achieve their business goals in the process.
Identifying the right staff, from site labourers through to main operational senior management, Blueprint provides both white and blue collar temporary and permanent personnel across most sectors with divisions specialising in civil engineering, executive search, construction, manufacturing, building services, commercial and technical and engineering.
Indeed, Blueprint currently supply staff and labour to some of the most high-profile projects currently gathering speed in Scotland and the UK as a whole. Blueprint is also proud to operate a vigorous training programme to shape the next generation of recruitment consultants, with five trainees currently on board. Once appointed, trainees work their way through a task book incorporating ‘live’ exercises, a six to twelve month commitment, ultimately becoming Institute of Recruitment Professionals (IRP) registered recruitment professionals.
Harris explained, “Due to a national shortage of high-quality recruitment consultants, we therefore took the decision to invest in the next generation of recruitment consultants, to grow our own and hopefully retain them in the business. People are at the heart of Blueprint, but they need to be the right people – we invest heavily in our trainees so, in return, we expect hard work and commitment from them, allowing us to achieve our own business goals and, ultimately, give our clients what they need – the very best personnel.
“At Blueprint, we have an explicit set of values and principles which we ourselves work by, and which we expect our people to adhere to, whether that’s down to their passion and pride or their commitment to discipline, perseverance and integrity. We always make an effort to do things right the first time. This has contributed greatly to our continued growth. We hope to grow further and add additional staff throughout 2017 and beyond.
