The Oyster Difference

Our entire business is built on delivering a truly exceptional service for our clients and candidates. We call it The Oyster Difference - and here's how we do it.

At Oyster, we promise to only ever deliver our clients the right person for a job. It’s a bold pledge, but our reputation relies on us being true to our words. It also requires a very different approach to the recruitment process – one which revolves around market intelligence, transparency and integrity, and backed by first-rate communication every step of the way.

Market Intelligence

Oyster’s unique grasp of the property and surveying landscape relies on market intelligence derived from a combination of technology, strong personal relationships and a great deal of hard work.

Our specialist consultants are trained to identify new opportunities and openings from a wealth of different sources, bound together and amplified by smart technologies. It allows us to rapidly respond to – and very often pre-empt – the needs of both clients and candidates.

With access to the very latest trends, real-time market data and an extended network of exclusive industry contacts, Oyster’s clients and candidates are consistently provided with a level of service that’s simply unachievable by our competitors. Similarly, our West End location allows us to meet  people on a daily basis who are working within the property industry, and allowing us to gather intelligence that nobody else has access to.

Transparency and Integrity

It’s our view that a recruitment process without complete transparency and integrity at its core is destined to fail. Transparency and honesty breeds trust, essential when career-defining decisions are being taken by candidates, and business-critical hires being made by clients.

The support we provide to clients goes beyond traditional recruitment services, and we’re trusted to inform our clients’ daily business decisions and help them shape their longer-term strategies. The deep trust placed on Oyster by clients and candidates is repaid honestly and openly, and we regularly challenge our clients and candidates to think differently about their businesses or careers – providing a refreshingly upfront and constructive alternative to our competitors.

Excellent Communication

Clear, straight-talking communication underpins our client and candidate relationships and drives our recruitment process at every stage. From the very first call or candidate approach, through to ongoing post-placement aftercare, we provide constructive feedback and updates, removing any uncertainties – and therefore the risk – from the recruitment process.

We always ensure there’s never any ambiguity around our service we provide, either. Whether it’s clearly communicating our fees and terms, or being clear about a role, it’s our mission to eliminate surprises and manage the process through intelligent advice and straight-talking conversations. The result? Everyone’s clear of what’s happening at every stage of the process, from brief to delivery... and beyond.
