    Default Azdio - Anyone heard of them?

    Hi

    I would like to ask for a bit of opinion, I have a bit of an odd feeling about a firm who has approached me and wanted to see if I am just being paranoid or am right to be sceptical.

    Im a contract PM, based in London and looking for work. I have been approached by a firm called Azdio who want to interview me over Skype, all the comms so far have been by email, with someone who seems to have English as a second language. I was sent a very generic PM spec sheet, and was told that the role was London based "with some travel". I have since then been able to get out of them that the role is in fact in Hook, Hampshire. Perhaps geography wasn't the recruiters strongest suit at college?

    Anyway, I agreed to meet between 9-10am tomorrow (Wednesday), and the meeting request comes into my inbox marked "10am Kiev time", so actually 8am UK time. So despite having a UK base, it seems their PMO sits in the Ukraine. I used to work for a firm with a Bulgarian PMO, and they were useless so I cant judge them on that.

    I just cannot seem to find out much about these guys at all on the web, however they have a UK registered operation since 2007, they do not list a UK address on their own site, and the website is darn generic and full of blind links.

    So, there is no hardship in spending 15 mins speaking to them, and I suspect my spidey sense is hinting to stay well clear. I wondered if anyone else has seen/heard of them? Searching this forum doesn't even give me a decent rant to use as a reference point! Can anyone share any experiences please?

    They have or at least had offshore factories in eastern europe for coders which might explain the invite time zone.

    Worked with, not for, them a little while back ...

    They are ok nothing special with usual mix of perm / contract resources with all levels of ability from very very poor to better than average. They have dreams of being a consultancy and providing "value to clients" blah blah blah but really are just an agency selling bodies. Some of senior mgmt are ex-accenture...make of that what you will.

    In summary no worse than most places and seemed to pay the contractors on time.

    Noticed that Hook probably means Virgin Media. lots of work going on there...not too bad a place to work but just depends as usual on the project, client, etc....

    #thecleverbit did get some more info about Azdio? I have been approached by them with intent for a contract but I am in doubt how legitimate they are. There is virtually 0 info about them on the net.

    Hey there!
    I was approached recently too. You may want to PM me? I am unable to send you a PM, but think I allowed other members to email me.

    Default Also have been contacted

    Hi There,
    I also have been contacted by Azdio via an agency called "The Skill Edge" who have a Dubai address. I have been told the end client is a large European Cable Operator offering quad-play and over-the-top video services to its customers. The location is London. I assume from reading the above thread that we talking about Virgin/LGI.

    As also mentioned above, my "trouble antenna" is vibrating a bit on this one. Has anyone got anything to further add to this thread ? I am new to this forum so I don't think PMs work for me yet.

    Many Thanks

    Hi All,
    I have been contacted too. I did not feel it very professional. I was contacted through an agency called IQ Telecom(https://w ww.interquestgroup.com/) whose address seems to be based in UK.

    What is the connection with this thread and Azdio, Icelandic?
