  3. 3. <ul><li>Blue Pelican was founded on the principal of recruitment, done better. </li></ul><ul><li>The 3 founding Directors are ex-recruiters who saw the issues </li></ul><ul><li>surrounding the recruitment industry as an opportunity to differentiate. The </li></ul><ul><li>business is built on its reputation for enhanced levels of customer service to </li></ul><ul><li>both its clients and candidates. </li></ul><ul><li>All consultants at Blue Pelican are expected to meet a minimum </li></ul><ul><li>standard of service provision – The Blue Pelican Standard. They are a </li></ul><ul><li>range of simple, logical and common sense guidelines which, when </li></ul><ul><li>followed will provide an outstanding customer experience. </li></ul>Principal Ethics … a positive customer experience is paramount
  4. 4. <ul><li>Blue Pelican originated as a SAS specialist agency.

  10. 10. Client Testimonials <ul><li>Blue Pelican is a very professional and dedicated, delivering strong candidates for difficult, senior level searches. They set themselves apart from other agencies because of their consultative approach; I think of Blue Pelican as a business partner. Their consultants have in-depth industry knowledge in direct marketing and analytics, consistently presenting very relevant candidates and providing extremely helpful insights on those candidates above and beyond what you would normally expect. The consultants also have a sense of urgency that allows us to rapidly move candidate through the hiring process. I highly recommend Blue Pelican and will continue to work with them in the future. </li></ul><ul><li>D Farr – Director, Executive Recruitment, VistaPrint </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Blue Pelican are highly professional and effective, they are great to work with’ </li></ul><ul><li>A Rave - Director of Insight Analysis, dunnhumby </li></ul><ul><li>‘ Blue Pelican worked hard to fulfil our brief and bring us an excellent candidate’ </li></ul><ul><li>G Desforges – Client Director, Beyond Analysis </li></ul><ul><li>‘ I have worked with Blue Pelican for approx two years and found them to be highly professional, knowledgeable and hard working on any position I have asked them to recruit for. Their consultant’s knowledge of the market and committed approach to recruitment has meant that I always choose Blue Pelican as my preferred supplier should I need to work with one. They are always happy to go that extra mile and has assisted me not only in getting candidates but also valuable market information’ </li></ul><ul><li>H Lewis – Fulfillment Manager, Orange – Adecco Managed Services </li></ul>

His feedback, expertise and ability to challenge my thinking throughout all stages was very valuable.” </li></ul><ul><li>M McKie – Business Manager, Marketing Strategy, Capital One </li></ul><ul><li>“ I have been very impressed by Colin's professional approach. As a candidate in this situation, I found him to be very proactive and well informed. He provided me with excellent background information and was very reliable & responsive. I would not hesitate to recommend him to both candidates and employers.” </li></ul><ul><li>R Kwei - Head of Digital Brand, Orange </li></ul><ul><li>“ Colin is a very proficient and experienced recruitment consultant, who I have been fortunate enough to work with recently. As an analyst within the marketing world I have found that’s Colin’s ability to identify the needs of both the clients and candidates is second to none. Further more when linking the two he went that extra mile to ensure that neither were wasting their time and that both parties were the correct fit. When future circumstances arise there will be no hesitation contacting Colin from both a recruiter and candidate perspective, and would have no problem in recommending him to either as well.” </li></ul><ul><li>J Hayton – Analytics Manager, Centrica </li></ul>Candidate Testimonials
