Why Bluebook Partners?
Bluebook Partners identifies the best and most appropriate talent. We offer a combination of traditional methods and modern techniques, with each assignment tailored in its approach.
We use search based methodology in the way we find potential employees. Rather than trawling through job boards, our techniques are very much aligned with traditional headhunting techniques. Once we have a shortlist, we then present this information to you by talking through each candidate at length, ideally face to face. In addition, we can provide supporting competency and behavioural data on each candidate. We would agree a set of competencies/behaviours with you at vacancy registration stage, and then present the answers in detail alongside their CV. This is usually aimed at more senior appointments however we’re equally happy to include in our service for all searches.
Best of all, this targeted bespoke approach is not reflected in our fees – due to us keeping overheads low, we’re able to be ultra-competitive. You will not find this kind of service anywhere else at the rates we charge.
“85% of job seekers don’t hear back after submitting an application…” Forbes, July 2016
I would guess this sounds all too familiar if you’ve considered a career move. It can be frustrating and demoralising if you’ve applied for an attractive role, only to be ignored. Recruiters tend to respond only to the small percentage of candidates they deem suitable, the others are left to presume they don’t fit the bill. We’ve all been a candidate seeking a role at some point, and feedback, whether good or bad, is vital for all sorts of reasons.
At Bluebook Partners, we’ve set this as one of our absolute key priorities – our aim is to respond to all candidates who apply for a role we have. We will be honest and transparent with everyone. If you’re not quite right for one role, you may be perfect for another. We’re hoping this candidate experience pledge will enable us to build a relationship with all of our candidates and ultimately facilitate the ideal career move.
