Yorkshire recruiter Blue Octopus shortlisted in two Onrec awards!

Yorkshire recruiter Blue Octopus is delighted to be announced as a finalist in two different categories of the Onrec Awards 2013. The Onrec Awards acknowledge the best online recruitment companies based on nominations for the various categories.


Blue Octopus has been shortlisted for ‘The Best Online Candidate Experience Award’ for the exceptional service and candidate experience that they’ve provided throughout 2012. The fantastic online experience is down to the user-friendly website, but the real key to their success is communication with candidates throughout the duration of a campaign. Once the user has processed an application, the Blue Octopus team work hard to provide individual, outstanding candidate communication and it is this that has helped to place thousands of people throughout 2012.


Blue Octopus has also been shortlisted for ‘The Creative Offline Marketing Award’ which is all down to the innovative approach that they have for their marketing. The recent ‘Pop the kettle on – let’s talk recruitment’ campaign has been a great success for the company and truly reflects the approach of the Yorkshire based companies culture; friendly, professional and approachable.


The Yorkshire based recruiter is also delighted to be representing two of their clients, Bensons for Beds and Manheim, who are both finalists in ‘The Best Corporate use of Online Recruitment 2013’ award.


The ceremony will be held at Grange St. Paul’s Hotel in London’s West End, on the 21st March 2013.

The finalists will be assessed by a range of judges and they’ll choose the winner of each category. The judges are:

  • Ruth Owen, CEO of Whizz-kids
  • Steve Playford, Managing Director, Financial Times Career Management
  • Laura Stoker, Executive Director of global Training
  • The Onrec Editorial Team


The news of Blue Octopus’s nomination follows their success at the Recruit Rank Awards in December 2012, where they won ‘Highly Commended Recruitment Company’ award.


On the recent topic of the awards, one of the Blue Octopus directors Chris Coleman had the following to say:


“We are delighted that Blue Octopus has been shortlisted for ‘The Best Online Candidate Experience Award’ and ‘The Creative Offline Marketing Award’ at this year’s Onrec Awards. Everyone has worked extremely hard to be finalists and it’s a fantastic achievement. Liam and I are very proud of our team and appreciate all of the hard work and dedication they’re putting into providing the very best service for our clients and candidates, so let’s hope they are awarded yet again for their great work. We’re also very proud that our clients, Bensons for Beds and Manheim have been shortlisted for the category ‘The Best Corporate use of Online Recruitment 2013’ this year so we’d like to wish them good luck for the 21st March 2013 too.”


The awards and these nominations reflect the huge progress that this local online recruitment company is continuing to make. Blue Octopus hopes to scoop both of these awards and add them to their ever growing trophy cabinet.
