Helpful, friendly and fast service

None at the moment

I recently went to see a Blue Arrow recruitment company . When I went in, a man greeted me and I asked me to take a seat at the lobby. Just about 3 minutes after that, a lady consultant came up to me and asked me about how she could help me. I didn't even need to walk up , but she came and sat...

“Mixed Feelings”

published 16/11/2000

Big client base, well known agency

Seems you have to be lucky

With Blue Arrow, it seems, your experience mainly depends on where you sign up with them, which could mean that it's up to the staff. The first time I worked for Blue Arrow was in Edinburgh in 1996. I was temping for them and had no lack of work whatsoever from day one. Since I just moved to...

Unless they had been to college themselves they often did...

I recently decided to look for a new job so I started by trying a few websites out. I ended up at bluearrow.co.uk and found it to be most useful. I could do an instant job search straight from the homepage (unlike Adecco or Manpower) and found a few jobs of interest. It was very easy to apply for...
