Yesterday the Housing Needs team from Oyster Partnership were very pleased to attend the Homelessness Conference 2019. This was the first time the conference has ever been held in London and after reflecting on the day it was a really insightful event.

The conference was attended by some fantastic key speakers, including the likes of Andy Gayle, Martin Wierzbicki & Toby Van Hegan. The event really was an incredible success and the conference itself seems to be growing in numbers year on year, with this being its biggest attendance as of yet.

From a homelessness professional's perspective, it was a great opportunity for managers to compare individual ways of working and brainstorm best practices to tackle all the issues discussed during the day. There was very much a sense of homelessness professionals coming together to try to tackle the homelessness issue which has been rising enormously as a group! It was so great to see involvement and support from authorities nationwide.

A special thanks to the main man Minos, who not only worked hard to organise the conference but was strongly involved in talks and workshops available to all attendees on the day of the Homelessness Conference.

We are very thankful to be a part of such a great day and hope to use some of the very valuable knowledge we learned on the day to provide the best and most suitable candidates to our clients at Oyster, whilst doing our best to work with candidates to better their experience in these areas.

We look forward to working with Housing Reviews LTD in the future!

Richard Bucklow

Richard started out in Oyster in 2014, working in Housing Needs, and honestly? It was a bit of a slow start. Recruitment is rarely an easy ride, but Rich stuck it out and started to build and grow his team. Over time, what became increasingly clear is that Rich is a decent recruiter, but a much better manager. Which is lucky because his team has grown exponentially over time, becoming increasingly diversified, and successful. It’s not looking like it’s going to slow down any time soon.
