T.E.A.M. Customers Banish the Stress of Being Under Headcount with Improved ROI

Master Vendor

We are all familiar with cost reduction, risk mitigation, process efficiencies, greater control and visibility that global MSP/RPO providers offer to multi-million and multi-billion dollar organisations. It is of vital importance to highly regulated businesses or those with volume permanent or contingent workforce requirements in a key UK location, nationwide or across global boarders.

Since 2001, I’ve personally initiated, delivered, directed and developed business relationships with the likes of IBM, GE, Siemens, and many other highly respected organisations from Fashion or FinTech Start-Ups to flourishing SMBs and larger Blue Chips, Public Sector and Corporate Enterprises in Financial Services, Banking, Pharma, Retail, Travel, Leisure, FMCG, Utilities and Telecoms.

Key deliverables were to provide the right number and quality of subject matter expert people at the right time, with an ability to ensure they could not only do the job, but have the talent to be strategic, yet hands on; inspire people; and manage change whether in technical specialist roles or managers and leaders of people.

Here at BluZinc we find that our digital, marketing or technology talent enjoy our interactions due to our ability to understand their achievements, needs and aspirations.  We spend an extensive amount of time networking and researching before even considering an informal initial call or meeting.  Be it people looking for a new challenge in a permanent role; a professional and credibly referenced contractor who’s approaching the end of their project, or an Interim Executive who’s spent 1-3 years as part of an executive transformation team… they all respect our knowledge and appreciate the way we initiate and develop successful relationships.

Of the people we’ve asked over the last 6 months, 75% prefer not to send they CV to major corporate staffing firms… and most do not send it via a brand-less job advert. A high proportion of candidates who publish their CV on job boards or apply to multiple jobs online, go on to receive “10 calls a morning”, from multiple organisations so a lot of research takes place by candidates before they decide where to invest their time and commit to a handful of suitable opportunities.  They “prefer to speak to an experienced Consultant who can empathise with their professional and life situation”.  They need to feel their own personal brand, matches the brand of the facilitator and indeed the brand of the very important client, who pays the bills.  We too never forget, who pays the bills and intend on developing long term relationships with all our customers, moving from ad-hoc yet cooperative relationships to tactical and eventually inter-dependant strategic relationships.  Without the best candidates, we are all worth nothing…

As a TEAM member, we have trusted relationships with highly experienced recruiters in all industries, specialisms, functions, and sectors.  It’s AMAZING… to brief a “colleague” on the Most Important Things a client needs or a candidate is looking for, and be provided with a perfect match, with the most efficient ratios possible.  It makes it a win-win-win for all of us, positive experiences and a very productive outcome.

We have TEAM colleagues in 600 UK locations, in additional to our International capability so whether you’re a high volume London centric business across several skill set categories or a multi-location UK/EU employer, we can provide Master Vendor solution that demonstrates the most competitive fees structure due to our lower operating costs, and the upper quartile talent who are not currently entering your selection process.  As a consortia of small businesses, we can’t hide from failure and our reputation depends on providing the results you need.

If you have a bottleneck with your headcount targets or niche contractor needs; if you have an exciting market expansion opportunity that needs reliable service, right first time; or just don’t seem to be receiving satisfactory progress then please contact us for further information on a different solution to an existing problem…
