Working with Bluestones

If you’re a driven individual who knows their market and are good at what you do – then launching your own business should definitely be a route you consider. However, launching a new business on your own can be stressful, complicated and a real risk to your day-to-day life, living standards and financial security.

By working with Bluestones you can avoid the day-to-day administration that distracts you from actually running and building your business.

Working with the Bluestones Group we were able to spot an opportunity in the market that no other agencies did. The Group allows you to be entrepreneurial while providing guidance when you need it. It’s been crucial to the success of NWP Resourcing.

Recruitment Industry Benchmarking

Recruitment Industry Benchmarking

The Recruitment Industry Benchmarking (RIB) Index is a practical, web-based management tool that enables recruitment executives to benchmark their company´s performance against their industry peers on key, industry specific, business measurements.

Recruitment Industry Benchmarking and the RIB Index is a service specifically designed and proven to help its members increase the value of their business.

RIB membership provides recruitment consultancies with true market leading comparisons – vital in the modern business environment – far ahead of anything that internal or informal measurement can provide.

RIB is a member-only service, developed specifically for the recruitment industry. Two-tiers of membership are available, each delivering bespoke, fully confidential monthly reports based on members´ own operational information.

Members bespoke reports are provided on an industry wide and – for no extra cost – sector specific basis. Enabling members to clearly identify performance within the market as a whole and against their direct sector competitors.

We had already been running RIB successfully for a number of years, had attained ‘strategic partner of the REC’ status, and were well-established in the industry – so our relationship with Bluestones Group may not seem to fit the typical agency investment approach. But that’s where the myth needs dispelling… as I’ve been able to secure investment and support that has provided a springboard for more ambitious growth plans and access not just to funding, but also to a network of subject matter experts.

The Classroom Partnership

The Classroom Partnership

The Classroom Partnership is an education recruitment specialist.

The business now operates across six primary locations across the UK, providing a truly national service and specialising in temporary and permanent recruitment for teachers, teaching assistants, special educational needs specialists, classroom support and cover supervisors.

Their recruitment focus covers early years, primary, secondary and special educational needs.

The Classroom Partnership is run by teachers, so they have a genuine understanding of the pressures of life in the classroom.

Working with the Bluestones Group

The Classroom Partnership is one of a handful of brands within the Bluestones Group that has introduced a multi-location, multi-JV approach to its operations. Each of the regional divisions within The Classroom Partnership is an individual joint venture in its own right, benefiting not just from the strength of the Bluestones Group but also from the wider reach and halo effect of the larger Classroom Partnership brand. So the owners and brand directors each retain equity in their own joint ventures, yet leverage the collaborative purchasing power of the shared brand.

Best aspect of being part of the Bluestones Group

As an experienced recruiter, I know my market very well and understand how to build a business. But the everyday minutiae of running a business – from a legal or financial perspective – that’s something I really felt the benefit of when working with the Bluestones Group.

NC Associates

NC Associates

NC Associates is a well-regarded professional services recruitment company that don’t consider ourselves as ‘ just another recruitment agency’. We consistently strive to be ‘partners in business’ with the companies we are lucky enough to call patrons, providing the level of service and reliability our clients and candidates have come to expect from a personally managed professional company. It is this ambition to provide the very best personal service of a smaller organisation, coupled with the high level of professionalism our team has accumulated through years of experience in the recruitment industry, that has resulted in the continued and growing success of our business.

Working with the Bluestones Group

As NC Associates was originally set up by Wayne Caunce, he had the added benefit of launching a new recruitment business with the support of the Bluestones Group. Importantly for him, joining the Group meant being a part of the Professional Services division and being able to leverage that extended network of professional recruiters in different locations and sectors.

Best aspect of being part of the Bluestones Group

Our primary ambition was to create a recruitment business that our professional services clients and candidates trusted. The boutique agency approach we’ve adopted supports this focus on providing a high-quality, personal service – whilst retaining the professionalism our team has accumulated through years of experience in the recruitment industry. Having the investment and support from the Bluestones Group allowed us to have this flexibility, particularly during the early start-up months… and evolve from solely focusing on accountancy and finance, to now providing a comprehensive professional services recruitment offering.

Harrison Sands was a well-established recruitment business when we received investment from the Bluestones Group.

We’ve been able to develop additional markets and expand the business without any of the headaches or distractions typically associated with running a business.

Katie Coates - Managing director, Harrison Sands

As the Bluestones Group invests in technology, we benefit from Group purchasing power and the ability to use market leading technology products – whether that’s our CRM system, access to the best job boards, or a high performing, bespoke website. I’ve also found the lack of distractions to be a huge benefit too – particularly regarding cash flow management and debt chasing. The central finance function that I use as part of partnering with the Bluestones Group completely removes the need for me to do that kind of work now.
