...but we are still connected!
The past few weeks have brought uncertainty, worry and significant changes for us all. I wanted to start this message extending my thoughts and best wishes to you. We have been working within the marketing and creative industries for over 20 years and I want you to know that we care about you all very much.
The whole blueskies team has been mobilised and focussed on being able to maintain business as usual. We have now moved to a completely remote working model. Our whole team are set up at home, to keep them safe and continue to provide an exceptional service to you.
We have been able to use our virtual interview platform blueskiesLIVE to keep interviews running and reduce the risk of spreading the virus. We have been creating video shortlists to cut down on long days of first round interviews and the video meeting rooms are being used for face to face interviews.
We also have an online recruitment system, which allows candidates to access their profiles through our website. Our consultants can access this from home, so they have uninterrupted access to both client and candidate records.
I have been most impressed with our IT processes. Over the past 20 years things have changed so much, I still amuse the team with stories of fax machines and roller decks! Our team is powered, like most, by Microsoft 365. We are constantly connected by Teams and are ‘Zooming’ all over the place! Video conferencing is a god send at times like this, it’s been great to see their faces and know that everyone is still smiling.
Now, I know that recruitment or job hunting might not be top of your agenda for a while, however I want you to know that when you need us we will be here. Ready to offer the best solutions, most talented people and the easiest processes.
Don’t forget that should you need to urgently fill a gap in your team or resource an important project, we do have a huge network of talented marketing and creative freelancers... ready to help. Our payroll system will ensure your contractor gets paid quickly and you don’t have to worry about lengthy internal processes.
Although we are all in this situation together, everyone will undoubtedly have a different experience. My door is always open to both clients and candidates alike, should you want to, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
