the Blu way of recruitment.
It all started...
Team Blu in a nutshell:
Meet the #dreamteam.
Back in 2010, I got my first job as a Headhunter! The title sounded exciting, but I didn’t know much more!
I had an amazing experience in recruitment, where I have learnt tons of things, had tons of funny stories and as importantly, I realized how fun and hard work go so well together. Eventually, I decided to go back to Barcelona. I asked myself how my career would evolve, and from there, Blu Selection was born.
A journey fuelled by amazing people and a teamwork that makes Blu Selection the success it is today.
GEOFFROY DE BEAUCORPS
Travelling around Europe for the past 20 years for my job has made me feel like a European citizen. As a finance professional, I was lucky to work in various sectors, usually right arm to a Managing Director, most of them being inspirational leaders.
Six years ago, I moved to Barcelona to create a European Shared Service Center for my employer, and I discovered Barcelona as a vibrant city open to the world. Hiring thousands of people from various backgrounds and nationalities has been a challenge and a great adventure.
When the opportunity showed up, I felt naturally inspired and excited to join Blu Selection to #makethebluexperience on a mission to help more companies hiring the best international candidates.
During my studies, I took a gap year in order to learn languages spending 6 months in New York & 8 months in Barcelona. That was the 1st step in the Expat’ Life. After my graduation from an academic background of Finance & HR Management, in 2014, I moved back to Barcelona & start my professional career in International Recruitment. It is such a pleasure & reward to be able to live in a place you feel you belong to.
Working with so many cultures I always have been fascinated by people; by the difference between cultures and what do we learn from each other. With Blu Selection, I have the pleasure to daily meet great people; candidates & clients from all over the world. I provide candidates with the opportunity to go abroad and live the expat life. I work also with an incredible international team sharing great values focus on transparency, expertise & quality. Let’s rock the #Blu Experience!
Marketing and Innovation Manager.
The first week back in Istanbul after an amazing summer internship in Barcelona, I found myself searching for another adventure there. However, with those famous automated answers, I got frustrated and realised how the job finding process can actually harm one’s self-confidence.
I met Blu Selection just when I needed it. Felt a sudden connection with the team and the values they carry after personally experiencing how a humanly touch in the recruitment process makes such a difference. Now knowing that our whole team works hard with a great passion to help others to gain new experiences, I’m eagerly working to #makethebluexperience.
Senior Recruitment Consultant.
Within my bachelor’s degree in economics, I had the opportunity to spend 6 months at Blu Selection for an internship. I got my first experience in recruitment and the chance to work with an international and inspiring team where I was facing new challenges every day. During this time I grew a lot personally as well as professionally and I knew that it was just the beginning!
After a little break of enjoying the Caribbean sun of South America for a few months, I am back at Blu Selection and more than ready to #makethebluexperience 2.0.
Senior Recruitment Consultant.
After an internship in Barcelona, I knew I would come back as I fell in love with the city. I had everything I needed here: An international community, amazing tapas, beer pong tournaments (D9 champion X 14 times here!) and wonderful weather. I found the opportunity to join Blu Selection in 2019 and I had 2 years full of good teamwork, amazing colleagues, a professional yet fun atmosphere of work.
After a small career break this summer, I’ve realized that the story wasn’t finished with Blu, now I’m back in my nest where I will continue to provide the #bluexperience.
AUDREY ASENSIO VAN TUIJL
For the past 6 years, I’ve had the opportunity of experiencing life in several countries. I moved to the Netherlands to do my bachelor’s degree in International Business and Management. During that time, I spent six months in Buenos Aires for a university exchange program and also some time in London for an internship in marketing and PR.
After being abroad for such a long time I knew it was time to return to the beautiful city of Barcelona – my hometown. From that moment on, I was looking for an opportunity where I could work in a dynamic and international team in the field of recruitment. With just a few emails with the Blu team I knew that it was the right place and time for me to #makethebluexperience
After my bachelor’s degree in International Cultural and Business Studies, I was looking for something that would have a positive impact on the world whilst also getting to know other cultures, languages, and people. The moment I stumbled across Blu Selection, I immediately knew that it was exactly the international adventure I was looking for, especially in this multicultural, open-minded, and motivated team of welcoming expats.
At the end of the day, what really matters to me, is being involved in a business that is helping people, in this case helping them find a job. With Blu Selection I am able to meet so many different people, make great experiences and learn about the crazy and exciting world of Recruitment. And of course, at the same time, live in the most welcoming and beautiful city in Europe, Barcelona!
Before even arriving in Barcelona, I visualized and already felt being part of the Blu Selection team and now I am actually here and more than ready to grow together with my team and #makethebluexperience.
One of my very first trips abroad was a school trip to Barcelona. I immediately connected with the city in several aspects: weather, beach, gastronomy, culture, and people. Someday, I would come back and live abroad.
This desire to live abroad made me come to Budapest for Erasmus. After graduating in Psychology, I moved to Madrid to learn Spanish. As I fell even deeper in love with the culture, I stayed longer than I first have planned. After two years in Madrid, I decided that it was time to look for an opportunity that would be closer to my studies and finally in Barcelona.
After the first minutes of getting in touch with Blu Selection, I knew that it would be the right place to start my professional career in International Recruitment. After my first week spent with my amazing colleagues, I can say that I love working here. I don’t know what the future will be but I already know that I will create valuable and long-lasting memories.
During my studies in Amsterdam, I had the opportunity to conduct two Internships which would then validate my bachelors. After my first experience living abroad, I knew from the start that my second internship would also be in a new culture with a different language and mindset! Even though I am very new here, Blu is enabling me to explore the beauty of Barcelona whilst working with an international, motivated, and fun team.
This team will not only give me the opportunity to fully grow, learn and be confident to start my career thanks to the amazing training and independence they give you, but also can finally get some more vitamin D!
This is the first time I work in an office since the start of the pandemic, which makes me realize how grateful and happy I am to be part of this team as I couldn’t have asked for a better ambience and mindset than the Blu team! I am definitely on the role to #makethebluexperience!
When travelling to Barcelona for a school trip in 2017, I fell in love with the city right away. The people, the food, the architecture, the culture; I loved all of it! I knew I wanted to come back one day. During my International Business and Management Studies in Rotterdam, I got the chance to do my 6-month internship in any city in the world. Without surprise, Barcelona was the first city that came to mind. As soon as I got in touch with Blu Selection, I felt in my place right away.
What I love most about this job is the diversity. Every day is different as I get to meet so many different people, each with a different story. I always knew that helping people in one way or another is a passion of mine. Making a difference for somebody is what puts a smile on my face. Therefore, I felt an immediate connection with Blu as they are helpful, consistent, transparent, and kind. Joining the Blu team has so far been an amazing experience. This young, dynamic, and multicultural team really encourage me to grow both personally and professionally. It has been a perfect combination of training to make sure I succeed, and the independence they give. Everyone has been so welcoming, and I felt comfortable from the start. I knew right away that I made the right decision.
I am more than happy that I started this adventure, and I am excited to continue to #makethebluexperience!
After finding an amazing opportunity at Blu Selection, I immediately wanted to jump in. The first impression was super welcoming and what I like the most is our youngish atmosphere. Even though it’s quite hectic from time to time, people keep smiling and have a good vibe. I have previous experiences in various fields, such as sales and customer service, and I am sure that my long work background will help me in this role. I can’t wait to learn more about the Blu family, start hammering to #makethebluexperience and of course, enjoy life in Barcelona.
Marketing and Community Specialist.
After having just graduated with my Bachelor in Psychology I wanted to continue my career path with an internship. I started to apply to a few positions using recruiters where I seemed to never get a reply. I got to know Blu Selection when I applied for a position that they were promoting. In the next few minutes, I received a call from Blu where I had an extremely pleasant conversation, making me feel very valued, very different to how I felt the previous days. Very quickly I realized the position I had applied to was not what I was looking for, which they understood since they wanted to help me find my perfect match. In the same phone call, I was told that there was an open internship position within Blu Selection. When I heard this I knew this was exactly what I was looking for.
With every further step of the application, I felt luckier and luckier to be in contact with such a friendly company. When I then got told that I had gotten the internship position I was so happy and I could tell how happy they were for me. From then on I counted the days until I would finally meet the amazing team in Barcelona. Since I’ve gotten to Barcelona I’ve often thought to myself how lucky I was that I found Blu and that I get to work in such an amazing work environment with great colleagues who make me smile every day. I am excited to be a part of the #thebluexperience.
It’s Blue without the “e“.
Don’t ask why it’s a family secret.
