Work with Oyster
Oyster is a genuine example of how success can be achieved no matter your background. What matters most to us is what you want to achieve and how committed you are to achieving it.
Our workplace is a genuine meritocracy where the potential for you to realise career ambitions is completely unlimited. Shaping the business around the people working in it is central to our whole philosophy.
It’s not the usual way of looking at, or doing things, which is why we call it ‘The Oyster Difference®’.
Join the oyster difference®
We hire people based on potential, attitude and ambition, rather than on formal education or even previous experience in recruitment.
The diversity of the people working here is the best possible testament to this inclusiveness.
Everyone who joins us benefits from the same opportunities for mentoring, trust, belief, input, and total support to achieve what they want to, both professionally and personally.
