Oyster and my consultant Jamie were so helpful and diligent in their work with a recent position I needed filling. Jamie was professional and always available to help wherever he could. He always looked to add value wherever possible. I would definitely use Jamie again for filling roles and or a career move myself!
Highly recommended. Carla and her team are amongst the most diligent and pro-active recruiters I’ve had the pleasure of working with for many years!
Murphy & Associates
Working retained with Oyster enabled us to work closely with a dedicated team focused on delivering the best candidates. This approach guaranteed results within an agreed time scale and a focus on finding candidates that not only are qualified but are a right fit for the team.
Head of Assets & Property Management
With the consistent help from Oyster, we were able to recruit 3 full time, temporary staff, to the team. I am very happy with the work Oyster did for us. They are a joy to work with and have allowed Central & Cecil to focus on customer service, going forward.
Service Hub Manager
Oyster and my consultant George have been great in finding my latest position in project management! The role has been the best to date and George was always available to answer any questions or queries I had.
It was a pleasure working with Oyster and my consultant Ettie. She took the time to get to know me, my career goals, and what opportunities would be a good fit. She is a great communicator and liaison who continually followed up to keep me updated on the interview & hiring process. Highly recommended!
I have worked with a number of Oyster’s consultants, Mairead, Ali, and Dana. All have been professional, supportive and took the time to understand what I was looking for. As a result I have contracts which have been rewarding and remunerative. I would recommend them to anyone
Interim Senior Surveyor
I had a very good experience with Oyster. Sara and Anthony were very approachable and took the time to understand my requirements for changing jobs as it is a big and daunting prospect. Sara in particular was always available to attend to any questions and would touch base before interviews to give you last minute pointers and wish you luck. Would definitely recommend using them.
Senior Quantity Surveyor
They were very professional and communicative throughout the whole process which went very smoothly thanks to their dedication and hard work. I would highly recommend Oyster and Patrick my consultant to others also looking for the right role.
