Alex Tapley

L&D Consultant

Dedicated. Creative. Caring.

Alex started out his recruitment journey at Oyster in 2017, joining the long-established Town Planning team. He slotted in immediately and started to grow his network of candidates and clients, most of whom have stayed faithful to him throughout his developing career at Oyster. Fast forward to now, and Alex is our L&D Consultant, responsible for training all new recruits in our 12 week academy programme.

What makes Alex good at his job?

Well, knowing pretty much everyone in the industry helps. Alex works pretty much exclusively through recommendations and referrals, with the answer to ‘hey, do you know a good recruiter?’ nearly always being ‘yeah, his name is Alex, here’s his number’. That comes from years of diligent hard work, proving again and again that he can deliver a stellar service.

Where is Alex going after work?

In his spare time, Alex volunteers at a heritage steam railway museum, helping to maintain steam locomotives. After work, he’ll likely be heading off for a perfectly cooked steak and an ice cold beer.
