It's all about the right match...
There is a better way to recruit and a simpler way to find the perfect job: the Octopus way. Passionate about finding the right people for the right jobs, our mission is to ensure the perfect match for candidate and client.
We personally interview every candidate to understand their experience, skill set and aspirations. For the job seeker, it means we can find you that dream job quickly and, for the employer, it means you will only see candidates who meet your specified selection criteria, making us one of the fastest growing recruitment agencies in the South West of England.
What’s our secret? We love what we do! We get a genuine kick out of changing people’s lives for the better and helping our clients to grow and expand their businesses. Whether you’re looking for work or looking for workers, we’re here to help so give us a call.
Meet the team
I believe that recruitment is at the heart of a growing economy and that a different type of recruitment service, with honesty, efficiency and integrity at its heart, can benefit all. Octopus Personnel is the result of hard work, focus and commitment to that vision – to delivering consistently great results for our candidates and clients alike, as well as ensuring the agency is a vibrant, inclusive, inspirational place to work and develop rewarding careers.
I oversee all parts of the Octopus machine. From registering candidates to site visits with clients, I love the fast-paced challenge of it all. Leading by example, we are not just recruiters; we are sourcing advisors, which means we are able to act as a friend who can efficiently guide you through productive recruitment drives.
I love being a crazy cat lady, whilst taking mindful moments and balancing on my head! Check out my blog about using mindfulness to drive productivity. Yoga anyone?
I specialise in temporary recruitment and I’m always planning ahead, but manage to fill those last minute gaps! I really enjoy the buzz of the Octopus Office and no two days are the same. For me, it’s really important to get to know my candidates so I can support them on assignments and get the best from them.
I love baking so working in the Octopus Office with a monthly bake-off is a dream come true. I am a great listener and I know the power of a well-timed cup of tea and a biscuit!
I look after the marketing for Octopus – from the job adverts you see to the events we put on throughout the year.
I love being in the middle of the office, soaking up the lively dynamic atmosphere. The team at Octopus really care about our job searchers and clients and do everything they can to understand everyone’s needs and make intelligent and productive job matches. Their drive and fun loving spirit inspire me every day!
As soon as you come through the door, it’s my job to meet and greet you and welcome you to the Octopus Office. My specialist skills are relationship building, candidate assessment and fetching. If you are a DTD (Dog Treat Dispenser), you’ll be extremely welcome here! I have my work cut out training up the little Scruff – but Octopus is all about gaining the right experience to find the perfect role and Scruff is coming along nicely.
