A great recruitment agent and would recommend to anyone, Very honest and always returns phones calls when promised, which is a breath of fresh air when dealing with agencies. She was very knowledgeable about the role I was discussing and nothing was too much trouble.

Do not hesitate to use her if you have a role to fill I am sure she will find the right candidate as she does actually care.

Blues Point is definitely the best agency that I have used in over 15 years as an IT contractor, they make a genuine effort to find the best people for a particular role. In my experience most other agencies pick their candidates almost at random.

Since leaving that particular contract I have used Matt as a source of advice and found him to be extremely helpful.

Steph is professional, courteous and extremely knowledgeable in the area of IT recruitment. She was a pleasure to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Steph to others looking for a new career opportunity or to any business looking to source IT staff for their organisation.

I began my relationship with Blues Point after our preferred recruitment partner failed to pre-screen candidates thoroughly. This resulted in the hiring of a candidate with a lack of relevant skills to complete the tasks that he was assigned and cost our business valuable time and money. One of the main drivers for working with Blues Point was their use of the IKM TeckChek technical and personality profiling assessments, tests that validated our hiring decision and cut down on the amount of time I spent on recruitment.

I just wanted to say a big thank you for the kind card you sent me – I’ve just picked it out of my in-tray now and was very surprised to receive it!

Time is flying past here and I’m really enjoying settling into the new role, can’t believe it’s almost a month already!

Thanks again for all of your help in securing this role for me, and for handling my persistent phone calls with such patience – I’ll recommend you to anyone that is looking for new roles in the future.

I was introduced to the Thomas International Ltd PPA evaluations by Blues Point as a tool for identifying a person’s motivations, work ethic and key drivers. To begin the process we completed the assessment by answering the questions from the perspective of the role itself in order to help us identify the personal profile that would best fit the positon we had on offer. This created a Job profile that we could then use as a template to assess the candidates’ suitability for the role.

We then moved on to the interview process, holding first interviews for all the candidates whose CV’s fitted the role in question. Once we had refine the applicant list to leave us with the most suitable from a skills perspective we asked those remaining to complete the PPA questionnaire.

Following completion of these questionnaires we received their profile which proved to be an invaluable and insightful look at the individual, and what motivates them to succeed. Also provided as part of the profile is a set of questions that help you to probe and validate their answers, and get some understanding of why the answers were as they were. These questions were used as the basis for the second interview, and were invaluable in getting to know the candidate, gaining some understanding as to how they would fit in with the rest of the team, and what would be their ideal working environment. Coupled with the PPA graph, which was overlaid onto the graph for the role itself, it became relatively straightforward to identify the best candidate, and to offer the position accordingly.

6 weeks on from the position being filled we are totally satisfied with the candidate selected, we are confident that the PPA questionnaire was instrumental in achieving this, and wouldn’t hesitate to use it again next time we have a position to fill.

Throughout the process, they were extremely accommodating, listened to our feedback, reacted in a timely manner and made the process very easy. For us they found the right person for the right role and at the right time!

We would have no hesitation in recommending Blues Point to help with your IT requirements.

Sharon Stainer, Clinigen Group plc


Blues Point have provided us with their technical testing services for a number of roles now, and they also put candidates through them as part of their normal process. These technical tests are invaluable! We use them when we need to assess the technical skills of a number of candidates in order to come up with a meaningful shortlist. They are accurate and cost-effective, and they make the whole process more efficient. I will definitely be using them again.

Damian Byrne, Healthcare at Home


We would highly recommend Blues Point for their professional, efficient and dependable service. We know that we can rely on them to produce high quality candidates for our IT roles. If we take time out of a manager’s calendar to interview a candidate from Blues Point, we know that it will be time well spent. We particularly like the intuitive testing the Blues Point provides as part of the service giving us some quantitative data to back up our interview process. Candidates placed by Blues Point have gone on to perform extremely well in the company, developing their skills and playing pivotal roles in key projects.

Sarah Chapman, Hollister


Team Rewards chose Blues Point as our recruitment partner after a recommendation from one of our own clients. After our initial meeting Blues Point quickly took ownership of our project to recruit into the team, and they delivered to an agreed timetable.

We have used recruitment agencies before but our experience hasn’t been positive. Blues Point are different; they took the time to understand our business and our requirements, they met and prepared all the candidates, they provided detailed interview notes and they conducted in-depth technical tests, which saved us a lot of time. Their approach is consultative and professional, and I will be using them again the next time we need to recruit into the IT team.
