Applegreen UK

“Since we introduced Blue Octopus’ technology and Managed Service, we’ve saved in excess of £100,000. We’ve been able to invest that money back into the business, which is amazing.

“Blue Octopus’ ability to reduce cost-per-hire and their belief in what they do is a powerful combination. It’s clear that passion filters down from the top.

“The team we work with are extremely helpful. They regularly check in to make sure we’re happy.”

– Paul Rushton, UK Human Resources Manager, Applegreen UK

The Brief

Applegreen UK – the UK arm of forecourt retailer Applegreen plc – required a central place to manage, track and streamline their talent acquisition processes. The business was rapidly expanding and needed to address the problem quickly.

As a relative newcomer to the UK labour market, they also wanted to strengthen their employer brand and drive engagement with that brand in a way that appealed to the modern workforce.

How Blue Octopus Helped…

Blue Octopus has supported Applegreen UK in implementing Octo Platinum. They now have an accessible and easy-to-use talent acquisition platform, which provides a transparent overview of talent.

A simple vacancy authorisation tool has instantly helped to streamline and provide consistency across their talent acquisition processes.

Saving valuable time for the HR team, each site throughout the UK can now score, shortlist interview and hire candidates independently.

In support of their employer brand, Blue Octopus designed and built a careers microsite. A Facebook page managed by our team successfully drives both engagement with and traffic to Applegreen UK Careers.
