It came to our attention some time ago that our identity and image had been “stolen” by an unscrupulous operator. We immediately alerted the Action Fraud Office in the UK, and are going through the process of having this unscrupulous person brought to justice.
This is a sad fact of business life that we have had to reluctantly accept exists, has happened to other companies and is difficult to stop. Our focus has been to implement best practice policies and procedures to distinguish ourselves from those which pretend to be Unicorn Blue Ltd.
- Fees: we do not charge upfront fees because we operate on a time and materials for specific milestones, the resources required to achieve the milestones, and, a contingent fee basis. All projects are scoped in Microsoft Project and which requires the client’s sign-off before implementation.
- Terms & Conditions: Our Terms & Conditions page strongly recommends clients take legal advice before completing any transaction to proposals put forward to them by Unicorn Blue. We can recommend, take measures to recommend and document our recommendation notices, though the final act of acting on the recommendation rests with the client and their basic common sense to independently check and re-check before actually doing. We operate on the premise that if a client is uncomfortable with our proposals, then either we can arrive at a mutually acceptable proposal or, not pursue any proposals altogether.
- Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct: We are members of the Institute of Recruitment Professionals for our recruitment consulting, and abide by their Code of Ethics and Professional Conduct. While all of the IRP’s Six Standards are important, Standards 1-5 are common in most other professional body standards. In view of our diverse skill sets, we abide by the same set of principles and values in all the consultancies which we operate. We invite clients and prospective clients to verify our good standing with the IRP (membership ID: 118898).
