Bloc Blinds Case Study - "Expand your team with the right people"


Long term recruitment solutions can help develop your business...

Bloc Blinds Ltd was founded by managing director Cormac Diamond in 2006. After working in Poland for a number of years manufacturing construction equipment, an enquiry from an old employer led Cormac to investigate the potential demand for stylish, high quality blinds. From the business’s humble beginnings, making blinds with just a handful of staff in his father-in-law’s shed to being awarded the ‘Best Export business’ 10 years later in 2016 at the NI Chamber of Commerce Awards, Bloc Blinds Ltd showcases home grown manufacturing on an international scale.

​​

By exporting all over Ireland, the UK, Europe, the US and beyond, Cormac and his team are always on the lookout for enthusiastic people to join the company. With a £4 million investment in March 2016 creating 93 manufacturing jobs over a 3 year period, along with a new, high tech facility constructed in Magherafelt, Senior Management & the HR department approached Riada to find out how we could help the business with their increased staffing needs & forecast growth.

Initially, Bloc Blinds were looking to recruit full & part time assembly & production operatives to cover the busy summer period until August 2016. Riada’s Industrial team understood the company’s ideal candidate profile, how many roles were required and when these objectives had to be fulfilled. We have continued to become their recruitment partner.

Following on from our success in the first year, Bloc Blinds have continued to recruit through Riada. We have sourced candidates across various departments, from entry to senior levels such as production operatives, quality manager, research & development manager & office assistant, managing over 345 applications.

Bloc Blinds senior management comments on the Riada experience…

“We have engaged with Riada Resourcing over the last few years on a variety of positions, at all levels, from supply of temporary agency workers up to senior management level roles. At all times we have felt that Riada have taken time to really get to grips with our company and the requirements of each role, and have been both flexible and accommodating to work with us, particularly when we have restructured or redesigned positions and roles last minute!

All members of the Riada team we work with currently, and in the past, are excellent at their role, and we place our trust in them to act as an advocate of our business when recruiting potential new team members without question. I would have no hesitance in recommending Riada Resourcing as a recruitment agency to any business in any sector looking to expand their team with the right people.”
