Our Services


Man browsing a Midlands IT recruitment agency website

We are a niche supplier of IT recruitment services in Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham, specialising in the recruitment of IT roles where behaviours, motivation and potential are as important as technical skills.

We apply the most rigorous pre-appointment due diligence procedures that you will find in any Midlands IT recruitment agency.  We promise to deliver quality candidates who fit your culture, and who will contribute towards fuelling your business growth.

Our huge network of IT professionals means that we will find the candidates that you can’t find yourself.  For services and pricing, click here.

As technology evolves, so does the availability of technical skills.  There is a definite skills shortage in the UK, for certain IT roles.  And if you need to recruit people with these in-demand IT skills, there will be compromise.  So – what’s the answer?

The most effective way to recruit is to attract people with the appropriate technical background PLUS the right attitude, intelligence, and motivation – and the ability to learn.  Technical skills can be taught, but it’s essential that you recruit with attitude and behaviours in mind.

Blues Point – the Midlands IT recruitment agency of choice serving Derby, Nottingham, Leicester and Birmingham.

My experience contracting with Blues Point as been excellent from start to finish. They have great relationships with their clients. They can explain to potential contractors/employees not only what the business of the client is about but also the culture. When I went for an interview with client I... found that I was well matched with my skill set. When I started contracting payments from Blues Point were set up swiftly and were always on time. For me this was weekly. I would not hesitate in recommending Blues Point. Many thanks for their fantastic service.read more

After being made redundant in October 2020, I have been in recent contact with several recruitment agencies with the hopes of getting a job. Before this, I had dealt with recruitment agencies both as a job seeker and as a client. Let's be honest - recruitment agencies are often seen by many as... being anything from vermin to tolerable and in many cases, this is probably justified. My past experiences [with other recruiters] range from failing to call me back to enticing me onto their books over coffee for a job that wasn't available. As a potential client, many recruiters continuously called despite them being told that no positions were available. This wasn't my experience with Blues Point. Right from the start, Steph was honest and went out of her way to answer questions for my benefit. As a person that likes to be kept in the loop, confirmation emails related to even seemingly minor updates were appreciated. As a job seeker, you are essentially a resource to a recruiter but I felt like a person throughout the process. Whilst I can't comment on Blues Point from a client point of view, I'm certain the values and level of service would remain. Thanks Steph for helping me not only land the job but change career in the uncertain times of Covid.read more

Professional team 👏 Prompt payment I haven't worked with an agency that was so smooth with getting invoices paid. I'll definitely take on contracts with Blues Point again.

I've been really impressed with the team from Blues Point and how well they describe and deliver their services. I felt completely confident recommending them to someone else in my network who needed IT staff and know they also had a really positive experience with Matt and the team.
