Jas is a first class professional. I have worked with Jas on a number of projects and nothing is too much trouble for her. Jas maintains a great balance between keeping I touch and not contacting too often. Her friendly and cheery disposition makes her a pleasure to work with and her expert knowledge makes her invaluable. I would highly recommend Jas.
Corporate Head of Housing, Lewes District Council
Jake and Oyster have been a supplier of mine since I started at Bruce Shaw. He and his team have developed an excellent working relationship with myself over the past 6 months and have delivered a number of excellent candidates to the business in a candidate short and challenging market.
I would consider Jake to be more of a Recruitment Partner than a supplier and he is not afraid to push back on me as well as take constructive feedback.
He is resolutely professional with both his candidates and myself and displays a passion for his role and delivering results which is fundamental to his success as a recruiter and what I desire as a client of his.
Recruitment Manager, Bruce Shaw LLP
A truly stand out recruiter. Lauren took time to listen to what the client wanted and delivered with professionalism and no shortage of good humour along the way. Thank you.
Director, Nexus Planning Limited
I would like to say what a great advert Katie has been for Oyster since she started dealing with us here. Her proactive, friendly and positive approach to her work makes her a pleasure to deal with and she has also proved to be efficient and effective in her role. This really does help to keep Oyster at the forefront of our thoughts when we are looking to engage temporary staff.
Team Leader, West Berkshire Council

Candidate Testimonials

Sam took a great deal of effort to get to know me, my experience and really understand the type of position I would consider. He then proceeded to take an equal amount of effort to successfully fulfil the brief.
He is a pleasure to work with and I can recommend him as a “go to” agent with a “go get” attitude.
Partner, Carter Jonas
Freddie was really helpful in my search for a new job. He quickly understood my requirements and only contacted me with genuine opportunities that matched my initial requests, which saved a lot of time wasting that can often happen when looking for a new job. Freddie placed me in my current employment which could not be a better fit! Well done and cheers, Freddie.
Project Manager, Akelius Residential
Lauren was instrumental in securing my new appointment. Her understanding of what I wanted from a job search was of the highest order. Lauren is very friendly, approachable and is very much proactive in searching for the ideal candidate to be placed within exclusive high-profile companies. I can honestly say that Lauren is one of the most dedicated recruitment consultants I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

It was Charlotte’s attitude and diligence that gave me the means to quickly secure a job in a role and company suiting my needs and requirements. Her professionalism and expertise in this field allowed her to excel in the service she promises to provide and I can confidently say she’s been an asset to my career – I would not hesitate to call upon her assistance in the future.
Building Surveyor, Ridge & Partners
I have had regular contact with Sohan over the last 6 months and have always found his approach to discussing contracting roles very honest and open. He presents a good specialist understanding of the contracting market and understands the needs to match the personal ambitions of contractors with client expectations. Sohan has excellent verbal communication skills and keeps in regular contact with opportunities as they arise. It goes without saying that tenacity is a strong personality trait but this is balanced with a degree of empathy and good understanding of personal ambitions. He can be trusted to deliver a focused, clear and honest assessment of the contracting market. Approachable with a good sense of humour, I enjoy discussing opportunities with Sohan as they arise. One of the first people on my call list.
