The work

We have worked closely with Stratec since 2008, recruiting permanent and contract staff for their UK operation. Stratec look for high-calibre software developers, testers, and project managers to work in a very specialised and technically demanding environment. Their work is cutting-edge so they need high-calibre individuals who can keep their systems ahead of the competition. After working closely with Stratec for so long we have a solid understanding of the working environment and the technical demands of each role.

“STRATEC Biomedical has experienced considerable growth over the last 18 months, with a 50% increase in headcount. Blues Point were our first choice when it came to filling the new vacancies created and provided an excellent array of candidates over a wide range of job roles, some with quite specific requirements. The Blues Point team has been there every step of the way and managed to fulfil our, sometimes very challenging, timescales with good quality applicants for each role. From arranging interviews to seeking references for successful candidates the team at Blues Point have ticked every box with ease and always performed with a high level of professionalism and integrity. In the past, depending on the role, we have used a number of different recruitment agencies and none has provided the level of service we have received with Blues Point; this is why they are now our number one choice when it comes to recruiting ANY role.”
