Yorkshire based online recruiter Blue Octopus have done it again! They have managed to win the ‘The Creative Offline Marketing Award 2013’ by a recruitment supplier.
The awards ceremony was held at the contemporary Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in London’s West End on 21st March. It began at 7.00pm with a Champagne reception and the representatives of Blue Octopus were in the company of some multinational brands such as EE, McDonald’s, Sainsbury’s and The Guardian.
Blue Octopus is the first recruiter from Yorkshire to win an award at the Onrec awards. It is excellent to see them standing out at the Onrec awards, especially when you consider the size of some of the other companies that were finalists.
Liam Coleman (Joint Managing Director of Blue Octopus) said the following about the company being shortlisted; ‘I am really proud of our team here at Blue Octopus, everyone here lives and breathes the values of the company’.
Blue Octopus has won ‘The Creative Offline Marketing Award’ for the innovative approach that they have for their marketing and this has been down to our new Marketing Manager, Daniel Briggs. He headed up the ‘Pop the kettle on – let’s talk recruitment’ campaign and it has been a great success, creating brand awareness and reflecting the approach of the Yorkshire based companies culture – friendly, professional and approachable.
Chris Coleman (Joint Managing Director of Blue Octopus) said;
‘We couldn’t have asked for better news following our success in December at the Jobsite RecruitRank awards. I am very proud of the team, we have done exceptionally well to gain so many awards for every year that we have been going and I have big plans for the future of Blue Octopus’.
‘The Creative Offline Marketing Award’ will be a great addition to the ever growing trophy cabinet here at Blue Octopus. This award and these nominations are a clear indicator that you don’t need to hire a multinational, faceless recruitment company to do the job; the team at Blue Octopus is brimming with confidence and are now more than ever determined to help get England back to work.
