Joe Burrows

Consultant | Town Planning

Methodical. Friendly. Thorough.

After 11 years working in support and accounts teams in recruitment firms, 6 years of which has been at Oyster, Joe finally took the plunge and went to the dark side. Now a recruiter in our Town Planning team, Joe is rapidly becoming as crucial to the team as he was to our Finance function (although he does still occasionally have to answer questions about how to put expenses through).

What makes Joe good at his job?

The skills that made Joe quite so good in accounts are going to be the same skills that make him a very good recruiter. His methodical, thorough nature means he will move carefully through the recruitment process, without rushing or cutting corners. Not to mention he will excel where most recruiters fall down; the admin.

Where is Joe going after work?

Home for takeaway Thai food and a cold beer. Joe’s absolute favourite time of day is first thing in the morning, on his bike on the way to work, wind in his hair. The perfect wake-up tonic.
