Working together with Inspire Business Centre, we can design and deliver a bespoke training programme built for your company needs, underpinned by awarding bodies including CILT, ILM and QualSafe. The bespoke training can be delivered through a blend of onsite experience in your environment and offsite classroom-based sessions, which ensure that staff can work effectively as part of a team, are health and safety qualified and understand your industry and their role within it.

Bluestones employ successful trainees directly, meaning that as a client you can avail of a highly skilled and managed outsourced workforce who can operate across the sector. This gives you the flexibility to increase and decrease your staffing levels to meet your business needs, without compromising on productivity and skill-set. We work with our staff to multi-skill them, ensuring that they have consistent employment whilst your business remains lean and adaptable with access to our skilled talent pool.

Tina is very enthusiastic about her job. She always makes time to spend on our sites with the teams addressing any issues or concerns they might have and also trying to find the right people to put forward to fill the jobs.

Tina has fitted in very well with her fantastic attitude and dedication to the role, she always goes that bit further to ensure everyone is happy.

I want to express my gratitude toward your team for their help in landing a huge project for our business. They truly went above and beyond and were brilliant to work with. This was my first project of this type so it was a learning curve for me as well, but your team helped out in any way they could. The feedback I have received from the stores we worked in has only been positive for your team. The work they completed was always to a high standard and they were a pleasure to work with. I will be forever grateful for such a good team making my life that little bit easier.

Having worked with Debbie recently, I found her to be one of the most consultative, professional, and trustworthy recruitment professionals I have worked with, in a very long time.

My next role was very important to me, so I was only looking for flexible working including 4 days working. As an experienced recruiter myself, I have always taken pride in managing candidates expectations but to be on the other side for once, Debbie made my candidate journey as a job seeker, exceptional.

Debbie, within the first conversation quickly understood what was important for me in my next role and offered me a perfect role. I would highly recommend Debbie and certainly, will work with her in the future.

I have worked with Debbie on a number of campaigns as her professionalism and management of the recruitment and resourcing function is exceptional.

I wouldn’t hesitate in engaging with Debbie for future recruitment needs.
