We engaged Oxford HR to help us with a very challenging recruitment – Head of Evidence for the Start Network.  They kept the whole process moving forward, on time, with professionalism and humour.  They asked us to interview someone who didn’t on first impressions fit the profile, but they used good old fashioned instinct, based on deep understanding of the NGO world, to suggest we would like each other.  And we did!

“I have been in contact with Oxford HR as a candidate and the experience has been extremely rewarding. Of course, it had to do with being finally selected to which I had applied but I have to say that the positive experience of interacting with Oxford HR would have remained the same even with a different, less pleasant outcome. I have particularly appreciated: the very approachable team of consultants within Oxford HR, so constantly available to guide me through the process; their direct, fruitful and helpful feedback at every stage; the capacity to consult the Oxford HR consultants on personal concerns and to see that they would care for them in the appreciation of the matters… I would like to be able to advocate for such an effective, human-oriented head-hunting company, which in my experience, compares so favourably with bigger consulting companies.”

“We have engaged Oxford HR a number of times… understand our organisational culture… appropriate range of candidates… quick and well-informed response… delighted to have Oxford HR as an international partner…”
