“Kerry Foods have been a client of Blues Point for a number of years enabling the recruitment of several members staff into the IT team. The latest recruitment was my first experience of using Blues Point’s services and through the whole process I found the team friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The screening of candidates meant only the most suitable were shortlisted for interview and we were able to focus attention on the specific benefits each potential candidate could bring to the role. One key requirement was to fill the role as quickly as possible and Alex and the team worked with us to recruit a quality employee in three weeks. We will certainly be using Blues Point again in the future and can recommend their services to any other organisation.”
