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’ve been with Octopus Personnel for four years now and I am an expert in all things Payroll, including pensions and holidays, and I ensure that all our lovely Temps are paid on time. Have a read of my blog for any payroll questions you may have. I am based at the back of the office and one of the office reigning Bake-Off Champions!
I am passionate about ensuring that Octopus Personnel is an eco-conscious organisation. From trying to be a paperless office as much as possible, I am always looking for simple, cost-effective ways to reduce our carbon footprint and affect your environmental impact. Reduce, reuse and recycle!
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 am responsible for developing, implementing and managing marketing campaigns that inform, excite and engage clients and candidates. I drive brand awareness within the digital space, as well as maximising website traffic and creating innovative website and social media content. Mostly, that means you can find me at the back of the office with my headphones on singing away to the latest video I am creating!
I love to sing and dance and I am always trying to get the team to Karaoke. I adore working in such a vibrant and busy office and I try to bring out the fun and frolics through our social media. Do you follow us?
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.
