How does the Blue Array Recruitment process work?

Lets talk

Step 1

Let’s talk. We want to find out what an ideal hire looks like for your organisation. If we can understand your culture and ambitions, we won’t waste your time with candidates that aren’t a good fit.
Network share

Step 2

We place job ads on your behalf across all the major job portals and advertise the role through our industry network via Social Media and our popular newsletters. Plus we have a pool of thousands of direct applications to draw from. The role can be advertised on your website or ours, or both.

Step 3

We rigorously screen and assess applicants for you and ensure they’ll make a good team fit. Using elements of the tried and tested process that we use for our own employees, we’ll work with you to develop a suitable approach for your role so we can assess candidate capabilities thoroughly.
Team fit

Step 4

We finally involve you and your team with up to four candidates for a final ‘bar raiser’ stage and for you to ensure they’ll make a good team fit.
Final selection

Step 5

You make a final selection and make the candidate a job offer.
Ongoing support

Step 6

We then discuss ongoing support, training and development of your hire, with or without the retained services of Blue Array.

I’m an agency owner, can I also use your recruitment service?

Yes, absolutely.

Can we also screen the candidates with you?

Yes, you can be involved as little or as much as you like in the interview process and you’re welcome to be included in the presentation stage as well.

Are you GDPR compliant, for instance with CV sharing?

We take our legal responsibilities very seriously and you’ll be asked to sign a Data Processing Agreement (DPA) to comply with the GDPR under the restricted transfer rules.

Do you have an exclusivity term?

Yes. Because of the high investment of our time in screening and interviewing candidates we require a six calendar week exclusivity term.

Are candidates required to complete a task?

All candidates have to perform some kind of presentation to the Blue Array team. This varies based on the role and we can have the candidate repeat the presentation for you.

Where the person leaves during the first 12 weeks of the engagement, a partial refund of the introduction fee shall be paid in accordance with the scale set out below (subject to additional conditions set out in the agreement).
