""I joined the CEVA business on the Tesco contract in April 2007 and have been responsible for the customer services area of our business. As part of our recruitment plans I needed to find a reliable, strong agency to help us out in our quest. I arranged meetings with all the agencies in the area who where of an ok standard. I then received a call from Oakland Recruitment. This was not your normal agency meeting. It was relaxed, informal and there was a passion for our business and the plans going forward rather then your normal agency spiel. Having built up a good relationship with Jean Hare I have found her to be a strong committed worker to the job she is doing. She is always polite,helpful and tries to know the best in her candidates to ensure that she is providing the right people for the right job. She has a good ability to change her communication styles to suit the audience and or company she is in. We have always been provided with good staff with the relevant experience required". "
"I would like to thank the team at Oakland for their great service and support over the past 4 years. Jean Hare and the team have a good understanding of our office and the sort of person we require, they are efficient and we have built up an excellent working relationship. The majority of staff who have been placed within my department have been successful and some have gone on to work in permanent positions. I would not hesitate to recommend their services to either anyone looking for work or recruiting staff. "
"“Oakland Recruitment has been working along the Davies Group for the past few years and has always provide us with high caliber candidates and competitive rates.

"Oakland Recruitment has been supplying staff to Lifestyle Services for over 4 years, both on a temporary basis for general administration and permanent staff for our Outbound and Inbound Sales teams. During this time the Oakland team have been dedicated to providing not only quantity but quality candidates at all times, without compromise. Their attributes are having a full understanding of our business, culture and ethos. They provide a high standard of customer service and always go the extra mile when required to. I would be more than happy to recommend Oakland Recruitment to any other organisation and are sure they would be an asset. "
"Oakland takes the time to understand the needs of our business and send me candidates who they feel ‘fit’ into our working environment. I always get a good caliber of candidate and often have a choice for each placement. I have a Senior Consultant allocated to my account with whom I have an excellent rapport and even an early morning ‘get me someone quick’ call is greeted with enthusiasm and professionalism. I only use Oakland and have no desire to look elsewhere which is down to their can do attitude and first class service. "
"Oakland Recruitment has been successfully recruiting for MHL for the past 12 months. They have successfully recruited sales professionals for my department and over the year and have built up a good understanding of the skills & experience we look for in our team. We are very unique in what we offer and Oakland have successfully found us the right sort of candidates. They are always accessible either by phone and email and are more than happy to come down to see me. Oakland give a friendly and efficient service. I have worked with a number of agencies over the years and I tend to find them to be very pushy and very demanding. My time is very valuable and they are happy to work with my unusual requests. "
"It has been an absolute pleasure working with the team at Oakland House Recruitment, their enthusiasm has made creating social media strategy a collaberative experience. I have been able to lead social media training and give Oakland further insight into how they can spread their content around the social web. I've created a plan of action to ensure that Oakland Recruitment are always using Twitter, Facebook and Linkedin to gain extra value for their candidates and clients alike. John Clark was able to recommend me as he knew I was able to train, plan and implement strategy that would be of benefit to Oakland House Recruitment. "
