I have worked with Oakstone for the past 8 years now and they consistently find great talent for us for each and every challenging role that we give them. What I like the most is they are a truly client focused executive search agency. They will always get the right specification before start any search and take the heavy lifting of us by understanding our culture, requirements and timescales and producing a short list who are usually very hard to pick from. In an over crowded market its sometimes disheartening working with search firms who spray the market looking for candidates. Oakstone are a selective business who only give us the best candidates in line with our requirements.
As a candidate its easy to forget the recruitment team in the heat of securing a new role, but you have each invested your time in me and I greatly appreciate that – thank you.
I’m very impressed with Oakstone, whilst individuals you possess a shared focus on doing whats right for both client and candidate, focused on long term relationships and the big picture, an approach not common in the recruitment business, certainly something I’ve not experienced before. I imagine that’s part of the Oakstone difference.
Rest assured when asked about recruiters there is only one name I suggest – Oakstone – thanks again for your valued support.
Matt – Marketing Lead, Software Industry
The consultants at Oakstone have been a pleasure to work with. They successfully guided me through a series of interviews at a SaaS startup to take a position leading their UK marketing operations. They made sure I knew exactly what to expect at each stage of the interview process, supporting me with well-considered preparation work and insightful feedback. I would definitely recommend anyone seeking a reliable and honest recruitment agency to contact Oakstone.
Working with Oakstone over the past 7 years has been truly key to the growth of our business at Neolane.
Their knowledge of the software industry and their impressive ability to reach, not only to but beyond their world-class network, accessing our entire target candidate audience has resulted in superb hiring results and the money invested giving a great return.
Oakstone’s reach is International and their standards of Integrity and Professionalism and results have combined to make them the best recruiters we have worked with, by far.
They have always taken the long-term approach, been persistent, helped us with market trends, salaries levels, and real assistance selecting and securing the right candidates.
Oakstone has provided us with an excellent service and have always been worth our financial investment with them.
I have worked with Oakstone for nearly ten years to identify and deliver key individuals to drive our business forward across Europe. They have always succeeded in providing very high quality candidates in a very timely fashion where others have failed completely or have delivered candidates with a marginal fit. They are highly professional, ultra focussed and continue to provide me with an excellent service.
I have worked with Oakstone over a number of years, with multiple companies, to help recruit the best talent into my respective organisations. What sets Oakstone apart from their competitors is the amount of upfront research and planning that they undertake to initially understand the role and profile of the individual that you are looking to recruit, then the methodical approach that they use to identify suitable candidates, managing the whole process on both sides and adding value at each step to both parties. Ultimately, this approach has delivered excellent candidates, resulting in the best talent joining my teams. Due to this, I exclusively use Oakstone for all of my recruitment requirements.
I have found Oakstone to deliver a professional service with valid guidance and commitment to client and candidate alike. Their market knowledge enables Oakstone to proactively suggest , rather than react, to enquires providing important industry and company insights.

I have used Oakstone over more than 20 years and have found them to be extremely professional in approach, intelligent in process and thinking, always fair and ethical in all areas of conducting business. Sadly these characteristics are uncommon in general and almost unheard of in recruitment.
