As every assignment is unique, our recruitment process is flexible and tailored accordingly. For each assignment we ask for as much detailed information as possible in order to quickly and effectively track candidates with fitting experience and skills. Further, by dedicating time to learn about our clients and building strong working relationships with the hiring personnel, we are able to identify candidates with the right personality and work ethic. For our candidate searches we go beyond traditional resources employing modern social tools as well as using our extensive global network including our existing directory of candidates.

Interviewing / Shortlisting

Blue Pencil is committed to providing a fair and consistent approach throughout the recruitment process. We understand the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace and make sure to avoid any discrimination at each step of the recruitment process. Shortlisting is carried out by first identifying candidates that best meet the selection criteria for the role including any statutory/legislative requirements. A further assessment is then conducted which takes into consideration a number of other important factors such as the needs of the client, cultural fit, market trends, experience and priorities. A final shortlist of candidates is then drawn up for our clients to take forward into the interview process. Our systematic approach and good practice guidance assures us that we are identifying those candidates that are best qualified for the role.
