Testimonials

We have been privileged to work with some of the best-known companies in the UK. Here’s what they have said about us and our services:

Caroline Ssempala, HR Officer

Oasis HR really listened to my needs and aspirations and were not pushy or insensitive to push me into an area or role I would not be comfortable in. Provided a very human and realistic experience.

Caroline Baker, Head of Resourcing & Talent at CityFibre

Sarah-May Smith did a great job. Very enthusiastic and really understood what I needed, was really consultative. Quality of candidates was very high, she really worked hard and listened to my brief. I also received unprompted excellent feedback from all the candidates about her.

Katie Waddington, Regional HR Business Partner at Prezzo

Sarah-May was amazing from the moment I contacted OasisHR about the role. She was really informative, clearly knew a lot about the client and provided some great advice throughout the process. She really demonstrates that she cares about candidates and securing the right role for them! Sarah-May is an asset to OasisHR.

Chris Convery, Regional HR Business Partner (North) at Prezzo

Sarah was fantastic. Her knowledge of the company and the updates were brilliant. She always had time for me either for a quick chat or text to keep me up to speed. I had full trust and confidence that Sarah had my best interests at heart.

Patrick Lynch, Interim Payroll Consultant at Camelot Global Lottery Solutions

The service provided by Oasis HR was amazing and professional from start to finish, I would highly recommend based on my experience with Marc Finn, very professional and down to earth guy – top marks.

Kristin Hefferon, HR Manager at iRiS Software Systems

Honestly the best candidate experience I’ve ever had. Sarah went above and beyond for me and made me feel at ease through each stage. I have been looking for the perfect role for a good few months now and she instantly made the connection for me and seemed to know exactly what I was looking for. I can’t thank her enough and I’ll take any opportunity I have to use Oasis in my new role or to recommend to others.

Dominika Horzelska, Head of People at Queensway Group

My experience with Oasis HR was great from the very beginning. Franki was fantastic and she really made me feel valued and appreciated. The feedback was provided in timely manner and Franki was very helpful and always available to answer any questions I had, so I wouldn’t change anything.

Graham Major, Head of Development Recruitment @ World First

Absolutely first class service from initial call to onboarding. Cakes on the first day a great touch and definitely helped me make new friends!

Jessica Collins @ BT

Catherine from Oasis HR was lovely to deal with. She was extremely helpful in providing advice and insight into the UK market, which was very useful as I had only recently relocated to the UK. The positions she sent through were all of interest and relevant to my skill set and helped me to secure an exciting role quickly! Thanks Catherine and Oasis HR!

Rianne Asher, Recruitment Advisor @ Prezzo

I would highly recommend Oasis HR to any HR practitioner who is seeking permanent or interim employment; as they deliver an exceptional recruitment service to all their candidates. Ensuring that the candidate’s journey is a pleasant/enjoyable one. They also go the extra mile to meet directly with the candidates before placing them in a role and provide them with key guidelines on how to best prepare for an interview.

Debra Hymos, PA to the HR Director at BT

I really enjoy working with Catherine; she goes out of her way to present candidates that she feels are ‘right’ for us, which demonstrates that in the past when we have shared with her our skill shortage and culture she has listened and continues to impress with the speculative candidates she presents. I think our last two hires have been not for roles we have been recruiting for, but for roles we created on the back of great fit candidates. Catherine is engaging, friendly and professional and I’m super sad that she’s going to be out for a year on maternity leave. I look forward to catching up with her and continuing to work with her.

Ruth Musetti, HR Business Partner at Prezzo

Sarah was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the whole recruitment experience from our first phone call to the final offer made. 10/10 service and I can’t thank her enough for her support

Alison Bell, HR Director at MTR Corporation (Crossrail) Ltd

Marc is an exceptional recruitment consultant and always gets the balance right in terms of what I need and contact levels. I can’t currently find an area where he can improve.

Laura Puges, MSc Human Resources and Organisations (CIPD, Level 7)

My experience with Oasis has been, and continues to be, fantastic. Every recruitment agency has a line somewhere on their website that highlights their strength at developing relationships with candidates and providing a good “candidate experience”. However in my experience Oasis is one of the few agencies that actually achieves this; Catherine and later Sarah-May were personable, genuine and helpful from the beginning. From my first meeting in January, I knew that Catherine understood my experience and was able to provide helpful advice – it feels like she’s been rooting for me throughout my job search, even if I have not been represented by Oasis for a role yet due to logistics. I would recommend Oasis to any HR professional who is eager to meet true Consultants who will take time to get to know you, give you advice, and develop a lasting relationship.

Charlotte Wells, Senior Talent Acquisition Manager at Experian

Having been on both the candidate and client side, I can honestly say Oasis HR’s service is faultless.

Rikki Weekes, Lead Recruiter at Link Asset Services

Both Rob and Luke have been very supportive throughout my time working with them. My initial assignment ended unexpectedly and Rob was able to secure me a longer term role within two weeks. He made every effort to ensure that I was not left without employment and I was filled with confidence that I would not be forgotten about. As a result I have now ended up with a 1 year contract with a more convenient commute and working in an industry that I have a genuine passion for.

Gary Manning, Recruitment Lead (EMEA & US) at King.com

I’ve been in touch with Oasis for over 10 years as a candidate and hiring manager. They always deliver for a variety of HR roles – perm and contract. Most recently hiring for one of my team and it took just less than 3 weeks from briefing to offer.

Karen Alred, Lead Recruiter at Link Assest Services

I have had a very good experience with Oasis HR. Rob Bascombe is a helpful, informative consultant, not pushy and very professional. Previously I have not been keen on recruitment agencies, but Rob has changed my views and you should be very proud of him.

Genevieve Jacobs, Corporate Services Manager at Bloom

The service was a 10/10 from start to finish. Very professional and true to their brand values. Totally honest and ‘real’ throughout. A great result and I felt totally supported during the process and that Oasis had my business needs at the forefront of their search.

Margaret Buj, Interview Coach

I’ve just secured my second contract role through Oasis HR and I’ve been very happy with the service I’ve received. My main contacts are Rob Bascombe and Luke Simpson and I’ve always been impressed with their responsiveness and feedback. We’ve also used Oasis HR to find candidates for our teams in my previous in-house roles. Thank you for great service!

Tanveer Mahil, HR Business Partner at GVC

Franki has been amazing. Her communication and feedback after each stage of my interview was great. She ensured I was prepared and I built such a good relationship with her. Even after I was successful and started my new job she still kept in touch to make sure I was ok and happy. For a recruitment agency they go over and beyond and I would recommend them to my friends and family. Thank you once again Tan

Jessica McQueen, HR Advisor

Catherine is honestly fantastic at what she does! Her advice was incredibly detailed and insightful, which really will support my applications moving forward. Catherine comes very highly recommended to me by previous colleagues and I can definitely see why.

Satveer Aujla, Senior Tech Recruiter at WorldRemit

This is my second consecutive assignment through Oasis HR, managed by Rob, successfully placing me at WorldRemit. Rob has the ability to rapidly assimilate nuanced cultural and organisational drivers, enabling him to focus on the needs of the client and candidate, ensuring a seamless recruitment process. When my first assignment was cut short due to budget cuts, Rob was quick to reassure me that he and his team would focus their efforts to secure me a new role and they did, to which I am very grateful for. To all my peers looking for their next HR role, I would highly recommend the Oasis HR team. I look forward to working with you guys again in the near future.

Linda Kelsey-Foster, Senior EMEA HR Consulant at Extreme Networks

Oasis HR have just completed their 5th assignment on my behalf and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Responsiveness, quality of candidates and quality of overall service is exceptional and I look forward to continuing the excellent relationship.

Adrian Penge, EMEA Tech Recruiter at Avanade

Oasis, and Luke in particular, were so supportive as I made the move to working as an interim. Luke was always available and gave honest advice which was invaluable. Luke and Oasis were able to provide several relevant opportunities and backed up their words with actions. If you are looking for a partnership with an agency Oasis should be the one you choose.

Kim Bantegnie, EMEA HR Administrator at Korn Ferry

I had an experience with Catherine Taczalski. She is a wonderful Recruiter because she takes time to explain the job description to make sure it both suits you and that you will be happy in the position, she is always contactable and very nice to speak with. In addition, she provides great preparation at every interview stage. Thanks to her, I am in a new role! I would definitely recommend Oasis HR.

Emma Burkitt, Accredited Executive Coach, Facilitator, Learning & Development Professional

Catherine and the team at Oasis HR have been impeccable throughout my partnership with them as a candidate, and I will absolutely recommend them to colleagues in the field. I was particularly impressed with their personalised approach, which sets them bars above other agencies. Catherine and her colleagues genuinely care for both their clients and candidates, and their focus on quality, authentic relationships and great communication is clear; from the initial meeting, through to their relationship with their clients and during the interview and offer stages. Thanks very much Team Oasis.

Jenny McGregor, HR Consultant at Flamingo

Oasis HR put forward an excellent shortlist for our Head of HR role, and the role was filled very quickly. The follow through was attentive and thorough.

Linda Kelsey-Foster, HR Director at Extreme Networks

I would not hesitate to highly recommend Rob Bascombe as a consummate professional within the field of talent acquisition. He is superbly responsive, highly knowledgeable, with excellent communication and great at problem solving. He has a top quality pool of candidates and can easily pipeline on request. One of the skills I found of most value, was Rob’s ability to set realistic expectations and be honest in regards to keeping in touch and making promises, which he always kept. I will continue to partner with Rob at every opportunity.

Helal Miah, Talent Acquisition Manager at Zone

Luke has been instrumental in securing my new role at Zone. Its a sector I have been actively looking to work in and Luke genuinely channelled my profile and suitability to them, which is all I expect from a good consultant.

His communication has been first class and support during the process has been invaluable. He has an exciting journey ahead, and in my opinion if he continues to drive service levels and honesty in the way he has done with me, he will continue to be successful and be the go to person in talent acquisition.

Recruiters often make the worst candidates, but I felt Luke did an amazing job to ensure my process was fast, smooth and clear and would happily recommend his service and approach to recruitment.

Mary Foulkes, HR Director at Southend University Hospital NHS Foundation Trust

Oasis HR should be proud to have Hannah Davenport (Researcher) and Andrew White (Associate Director) as part of their team. They are two of the best recruitment professionals that I have been involved with. Their advice and support was extremely valuable, which helped me gain an in-depth knowledge and insight into the organisation prior to my interview.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Oasis HR as a service provider to any of my peers or to people I know who are looking for their next HR Challenge.

Klaer Brooker, Group Head of HR Transformation at Computacenter

I recently worked with Franki on a role which had been challenging to recruit for due to the specialist skills and expertise required. Her thorough approach, from taking a full brief and understanding the role and the requirements was excellent. She managed the recruitment process fully, keeping in touch, setting my expectations and managing the candidates. I would highly recommended Franki, and would not hesitate to work with her again.

Nikki Holloway, Talent Development Manager at Trayport

I started a new and exciting chapter of my career on 1st December, when I became the Talent Development Manager at Trayport, London. This opportunity has come about through the wonderful work of Franki Crosse at Oasis HR. The support she has given throughout the process, and that of her colleagues, has been outstanding. I would definitely use them, again, (though not for a while, of course) and would recommend them to others! Thanks, Franki!!!

Nick Summers, Director of Corporate Affairs at Helios Towers Africa LLP

Oasis Hr have provided me with a great service from start to finish.  We had never used Oasis HR before but would happily recommend them to anyone based on the job that they have done for us.  All the candidates they put forward could have undertaken the role with my unrealistic requirement to fill the role immediately almost being met; it has been such a smooth and easy process.

Claudia Osei, EMEA HR Director at Treasury Wine Estates

Franki was instrumental in securing my new role. She was very professional and had a good understanding of the position and the Company. Her knowledge was invaluable. She provided useful insight and material to support me and we had regular dialogue throughout the entire interview process. Franki is hugely personable and great at building relationships. My experience working with Franki and Oasis HR in general has been extremely positive and I would certainly work with them again in the future.

Carmel, HR Business Partner

Hannah, thank you for your hard work and efforts in finalising my contract and securing my new role. I wanted to thank you for your persistence, determination and patience in getting the deal done. It has been a pleasure liaising with you over the past few weeks and I would commend you for your friendly, approachable, professional style with candidates!

I also wanted to make you aware that I have been looking for HR employment since mid June now and during that time I attended four interviews with four different companies, of which three of the jobs came from Oasis HR! I think that is an excellent record for any recruitment agency and I think it shows the extra mile that Oasis go to deal with a candidate with a strong cv.

I would also like to take this opportunity to commend your colleagues Andy White and Chris Smith who were also a real pleasure to deal with during my search for employment. I am very excited to be starting tomorrow; the role is perfect as it will be very exciting, interesting and challenging whilst providing me with a good work life balance so thanks again for your efforts Hannah.

Steve Murton, Senior Recruiter at easyJet

Rob was instrumental in getting me my most recent assignment. He is a breath of fresh air in a crowded recruitment market, and I hope to work with him in the future.

Sally Castle, HR Director at CGI

I would like to thank both Andy White and Rob Faldo for their excellent, timely and encouraging support during my successful application for the above role. 

Initially I was a passive candidate who was openly and honestly briefed on the opportunity available.  Upon deciding to apply I can confirm I was coached fully in preparation for each interview and received feedback immediately after attending each element of the recruitment process.  Oasis HR were able to provide full, speedy feedback due to their obvious outstanding relationships within the CGI organisation.

I was made to feel a first class candidate throughout, and am thoroughly delighted with my new role – a great match!

Prakash Satagopan, Total Rewards, APJ at HP

It’s a pleasure to write a recommendation for Rob, I have engaged with him during my recent move to my new job at HP, there are a few things that makes him a great Recruitment consultant.

He is very responsive and diligent in his process. He ensures that he shares all the information about the position he is hiring for, and if he does not know he finds the answers. Its very easy to interact with him, he is friendly, approachable and available for discussions. I am sure he will be a very dependable and trusted recruitment professional to work with for any organisation that consults with him. Good luck Rob! and let’s stay in touch.

Steve Hunt, Head of Resourcing at Thales Group

Oasis HR is a recruitment consultancy who I hold in very high regard. Having used the guys at Oasis from both a candidate and client perspective, I can honestly say that the level of service does not falter. When delivering talent for my team at Thales, I always feel 100% confident that they fully understand the business requirements and will do everything possible to find the best candidates for the job. Given we operate a direct recruitment model at Thales which means we source 96% of our talent directly, we partner with a very small number of companies to support us in sourcing the remainder. The fact that we have used Oasis consistently shows that their network driven approach means they can access some very unique talent pools.

Oasis HR’s passion for HR is second to none and reflected by the networking events they run for senior HR professionals; a group that several Thales HR employees have taken great value from over the last four years. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to my peers looking for new opportunities and other businesses seeking a trusted recruitment partner.

Ian Dodd, Global VP HR (Brand Expedia) at Expedia

Oasis HR are a genuinely outstanding Partner; always professional and a pleasure to work with. They offer an impressive service, are able to source high calibre candidates and provide a talent ‘benchmark’ difficult to top.

Gurdip Virdee, HR Advisor at the BBC

My experience of Oasis HR has been really good, and when I decide to look for another job I will certainly be using them again. The courtesy calls once I secured a role were really nice, and the coaching prior to my interview was extremely helpful in my preparation. I would highly recommend them.

Danika Ball, HR Manager at PA Consulting Group

I’ve worked with Robert as a candidate as he placed me in my current role as HR Manager with PA Consulting Group, and have found him to be extremely professional, honest and reliable. He has high integrity and approaches his work in a pragmatic manner, providing sound, reliable feedback throughout the entire recruitment process. Robert takes time to really get to know both candidates and clients and is a skilled professional in making the right match between experience, skill set and organisational culture. He demonstrates a genuine passion in his work and an ethical approach in guiding candidates through what can oftentimes be lengthy, complex recruitment processes in today’s business environment. Robert and his colleagues at Oasis HR are clearly committed to delivering successful long-term client solutions and I have found him and his team to be a pleasure to work with; I would be keen to engage Robert as a Recruitment professional from client-side if the opportunity arose in the future!

Deb Walton, HR Director Corporate at News International

I was really pleased with the service I received from the team at Oasis HR. I found them easy to work with and very supportive during the search process. They understood the mixture of needs that I had for the role, always met deadlines and kept me well informed throughout. I am very pleased with the candidate that they have helped me to secure and I would definitely approach them again in the future.

Gurdip Virdee, HR Advisor at BBC

I was very happy with the service I received from Oasis HR in my job search. You guys gave me great advice and tips when prepping for the interview, and even once I had been offered the job, your courtesy calls were really nice and reassuring. There was no sales pitch which I have had in the past from recruitment agencies. I would definitely recommend Oasis HR – in fact I have! And I would use you guys again.

Ashleigh Webster, Recruiter at Equifax

I have nothing but praise for the team at Oasis HR, especially Hannah Knibb. Hannah was so supportive in helping me find a new job, she gave me regular updates and whilst she was always professional, she was also friendly and easy to talk to. Oasis HR have great roles on their books and are adept at finding suitable roles for their candidates. I would not hesitate in recommending the Oasis HR team to someone looking for a new role. Thank you Hannah and Oasis HR!

Lisa Gellert, EMEA Recruiter at Expedia

Marc has been great in placing me at Expedia – also he is the first agent ever to find me a great job. Marc is very personable and we had a good contact throughout the process which went extremely smooth.

Matthew Beeson, HR Generalist at CH2M Hill

Hannah provided a very detailed, highly efficient service which has resulted in me being placed in a very exciting, contract role. Very personable, she was very thorough in her approach wanting to understand exactly what I was looking for in my next role, which sectors and markets would interest me and where my skills would be best put to use. having identified a suitable opportunity Hannah was very efficient in managing the process and I am grateful for the hard work and effort she put in in placing me. I would recommend Hannah and Oasis and will continue to work with them both personally and professionally in the future.

Ben Rodrigues, EMEA Talent Acquisition at Wipro Technologies

Marc first contacted me just over a year ago, unfortunately I had found a new position at the time. But when I started looking again, Marc was the first person and only person I contacted to help me. He is so knowledgeable about his clients, it makes it very easy to prepare for an interview and understand the environment. I’ve no doubts in recommending Marc to other recruiters looking to find the next right position

Ed Morris, Senior Recruiter at Service-now.com

Rob first spoke to me when I was happily employed. He didn’t try to push me to go to an interview with a client that he had a job for but might not suit me, but listened to exactly what I do and exactly what motivates me – which was very refreshing. He managed to get me my job at ServiceNow and for that I am forever grateful. I would definitely recommend Robert to any of my previous colleagues and contacts in Recruitment. A rare gem in HR Recruitment.
