"Oxford HR help to filter and ensure that the fit is right, that candidates are well briefed and genuinely interested and suited to us. Of particular note is their ability to find candidate profiles that fit the specific function required in a wide range of roles, and their in-depth knowledge of the international development sector and the Africa region.

"I greatly appreciated the support given by Ana Filipa and Jamie throughout the whole selection process… sometimes even in my own language! Ana has provided me not only with highly relevant information about the organization, its purpose, projects and activities, but also about the people involved at each of the stages of the evaluation process. Their support was key on preparing me adequately for each occasion.

I would like to thank and recommend Ana and Jamie for their professional support during each step of the process. Along the way, both of them showed genuine interest in me as a candidate which made me feel very comfortable and much more confident."
