Like many other expanding companies, Blue Logic has harnessed the power of providing an appealing opportunity to their candidates, such as working in a 18th century manor house close to the amenities of the city centre.

A key feature of Blue Logic’s recruitment drive is the inclusive nature of the roles, as they offer an apprenticeship scheme alongside more senior roles. Successful candidates on the programme are enrolled into twelve months of industry learning, gaining qualifications as they go.
