We invest in great recruiters, recruitment companies, and staffing service organisations.
Who we are
We provide so much more than investment. From our support division offering payroll and a range of funding options, to our investment division creating new recruitment brands and scaling established companies, or our balanced portfolio of recruitment & staffing service companies; the Bluestones Group is focused on all things recruitment.
All Things Recruitment
Bluestones Group is singularly focused on All Things Recruitment. It runs through everything we do, whether that’s managing our core recruitment portfolio, to identifying individual recruiters and recruitment businesses to invest in through our investment division, or supporting external recruitment companies with our support division’s payroll, funding, marketing and IT services.
We have a clear, unambiguous strategy that focuses on three core elements: Acquisition. Investment. Organic Growth.
Everything we do is in support of, or aligned with, one or more of these elements. This means taking action and making decisions that support our vision, by engaging in strategically aligned activities in our chosen sectors, but also at the same time not being distracted by undertakings that fall outside of this remit.
We have three core divisions:
Recruitment, Investment and Support.
Within our Recruitment Division we have five core sectors within which our portfolio of brands exist.
This balanced approach ensures we have a breadth of coverage across a diverse range of industry sectors, whilst nurturing a depth of talent within each of the divisional sectors.
We have invested in and supported a broad and balanced portfolio of brands that predominantly operate within the recruitment and staffing sector.
This approach ensures a balanced risk approach through any sector or market-specific uncertainty and provides a degree of downside resiliency.
Perhaps more importantly however, it allows the Group to capitalise on multiple opportunities simultaneously across the divisional sectors in which we operate.
Having clear company values helps ensure that everyone in the Group is working towards the same goals. Our values help support our vision and shape our culture.
As a Group, our core company values influences everything we do; from employee behaviour to encouraging a customer-centric focus.
To understand our history, it's necessary to first explain our business model.
At Bluestones we believe it's important that our people believe in our vision and feel personally invested in what we do. This shared ownership approach is underwritten by our joint venture model, whereby brand directors have an equity stake in their businesses.
Our approach is unique in that we typically provide 100% funding for new joint ventures that provide a compelling business case and are strategically aligned with our goals and core divisions.
Clearly our brands will only ever be as good as the people within them.
It's why we value our people and recognise the importance of investing in them, ensuring we give them the support they need and the opportunities they want.
We therefore constantly seek to attract and retain the right talent for the Group; people that respect our values and are committed to achieving our shared vision.
