APSCo trusted partner

IT solutions that enable recruitment consultancies to increase productivity and transform performance

We are proud to be an APSCo affiliate, and having undergone a robust assessment process before joining, you can rest assured our commitment to excellence.

Competition and the pace of change in the UK’s recruitment sector is intense. Digital transformation is challenging business models, changing how talent is sourced and bringing new opportunities. Clients demand high standards from both the personnel they deal with and the end-to-end recruitment experience. Clients with important roles to fill want results, and typically want those results fast. This is placing increasing pressure on recruitment firms and HR professionals to be more productive and work smarter.

If that weren’t enough, for many recruitment consultants and HR teams finding, attracting and engaging a talented workforce is a key priority and critical success factor. The fight to attract talent is taking place across a global, web-enabled playing field of digital natives who value collaboration, business culture and modern technology as much as security and pay.

This is why a personalised and compelling workplace experience is seen as vital to attracting and retaining the right people. Recruitment consultancies are realising that today’s workplace experience must deliver more. Talented consultants want flexibility in where they work, they want to be connected on the go and they want software and services to give them an advantage in the market. In-demand consultants with hard-to-find skills are besieged by unsolicited job opportunities.

Recruitment consultancies must not only be a great place to work, they must differentiate themselves through their unique cultures and modern working practices. Technology has a fundamental role to play in their success.

Good IT is critical in helping recruitment firms innovate, improve productivity and create a modern, attractive workplace experience. Those firms taking a more proactive approach to IT are realising the benefits and gaining a competitive advantage. The benefits are compelling:

Work with Blue Saffron

Enabling recruitment firms to compete more effectively

Most recruitment firms understand the potential of IT but fail to unlock its business value. Some report difficulty in recruiting and retaining the depth of top quality IT staff to help fulfil the opportunities presented by technology. Consequently, IT can be seen as difficult to implement and may not be contributing to productivity and the workplace experience in an optimal way. It needn’t be that way.

Blue Saffron works extensively with the recruitment sector. The support and development of IT services for recruitment companies has been the very foundation of our offering for over a decade. Having worked with many medium-sized firms, we understand their challenges and have developed intelligent IT solutions to create positive impact for recruitment consultancies.

If, like many recruitment firms, you are still running legacy systems or your IT is not adequately supporting your business growth, we can help. We can advise on how IT could better meet your business needs. We can improve your current system or help you migrate to modern flexible IT systems, cloud services and more productive software. We work on a wide range of projects from unifying IT systems as part of an M&A process to helping manage candidate database systems. Through our experience in working with many recruitment firms, we have seen how IT can be transformative in improving the way you work, increasing client satisfaction and in attracting the talent you need to thrive.
