Managing Director, Digital Startup, Manchester

After being in touch with many agencies and posting across several job boards for months, we were struggling to fill the role. 

Within a matter of days of signing up with Oscar, they were able to get across a great range of CVs which led to a new hire within a matter of weeks.

They've been great to work with, very professional and kept the whole process fun – despite our very tight requirements and specific job spec!

Managing Director, Software, Birmingham

Oscar recently supported our business in the recruitment of two expert Data Insight Analysts. They quickly built rapport with our team and set about the task of securing suitable options. 

Oscar went to great lengths to secure interviews with some excellent candidates, they went above and beyond during the process. They furnished us with two candidates that fitted the spec and in the end, they were so good that we took them both on. They kept me informed at all the right stages of the process and we will certainly be using this service again! I would happily recommend working Oscar.
