Making a successful hire starts with a deep understanding of what’s required within the role.
At Blues Point, we have successfully recruited hundreds of IT staff in our 16 years in operation. And as a result, we’ve learned the critical components that make up a successful IT professional hire.
Across the board, we’ve achieved fantastic success for our clients. We saw a 100% 1-year minimum retention rate of all candidates placed in 2017 – 2018.
But how did we do this? Take a look below for a brief overview of the four key tools we use when recruiting.

We proactively go out and find the best people for your role, instead of simply relying on job boards. We do this because we understand that the best candidates are likely already performing effectively in the role – at another company.
We use behavioural assessments to give us a deeper understanding of the way your candidate’s mind works. This will help you to make hiring decisions, as well as give you an indication on how best to manage the individual once they’re part of your company.
Considering a candidate based on the experience listed on their CV is fine, but can you be sure that they will be able to perform in the job itself? Technical testing provides definitive evidence of their proficiency within key areas of knowledge, specific to your role.
Our use of video tools within recruitment makes the process more in-depth while simultaneously making it more stream-lined. We are able to interview candidates on your behalf, the recordings of which you can watch at a time that’s convenient for you.
Over the course of our decade-long relationship with Stratec Biomedical, we’ve placed around thirty IT staff in their business – a combination of both permanent and contract vacancies.
Stratec Biomedical are an industry leader in creating automated solutions for in-vitro diagnostic and life sciences companies. The professionals that we have recruited for them play a key role in developing, testing and implementing software which runs alongside their innovative medical instruments.
In the time we’ve worked with Stratec Biomedical, the company has undergone a number of changes. When they were encountering a substantial growth phase, we were on hand to source and vet IT staff for them. By outsourcing this daunting and potentially challenging task to us, they were able to focus on other critical elements of scaling their business, happy in the knowledge that their recruitment efforts were in good hands.
As a result of the cutting-edge work that Stratec do, their technical stack has evolved over the years. This has meant that we too have had to remain on the pulse and agile enough to be able to understand and meet their developing requirements – as well as being tenacious enough to find professionals with rare, niche technical skill sets.
The company have seen fantastic staff retention rates and the vast majority of the permanent IT staff we have placed with them remain part of the team to this day. One of the developers we placed has gone on to fill the position of ‘Head Of Development’ at the company.
