  • This is a very supportive environment. Whether it be the little wins or promotions, the team is always there to help with both your personal and professional development.

  • The business has been able to offer me realistic career progression based on not only my performance, taking into consideration contribution to people development and leadership of others....The people are at the heart of the organisation, the best team I have personally worked with over my recruitment career. Work life balance is great with ability for everyone to flex around their own needs.

  • Strong emphasis on high performance culture, working smart, and making data driven decisions. Training provided continuously. Colleagues are encouraging and celebrate achievements together. Good admin and IT support. MD takes the time to check in on each person.

  • I started my role at OJ in 2021 and I can safely say I've never worked anywhere with a more supportive and positive culture during my career so far. I sit on the Change & Tech team and they are truly great and we work collaboratively every day, which is a refreshing change especially in the recruitment industry. One thing that I love is the company wide flat structure, you can honestly talk to anyone in the business regardless of seniority and everyone has made me feel so welcome during my first few months.

  • OJ has giving me amazing amounts of support and they are a very close knit company with loads of support and encouragement giving me a totally different outlook on Recruitment.

  • OJ challenges you to be the best you can be, the development opportunities you receive go all the way through your career, and the business retains a family feel while consistently growing every year.

  • Over the past two years at Oliver James, I've had the opportunity to get an in-depth view of what recruitment should be like....they have a great foothold within the US market and great relationships with their clients. If you're looking for a company that will help you develop your career professionally and personally, this is the place for you.

  • Best reasons to work at Oliver James: Extremely supportive management and leadership, collaborative culture, solid L&D training, overall a very fun group of people who work hard together! Everyone genuinely supports one another. OJ is truly a one of a kind business, one of the best in the globe!

  • Many options for career progression. Lots of investment in projects so plenty of interesting work/personal challenges. It's clear that a lot of thought is put in to supporting employees. Some great people to work with and always someone to learn off. The support provided throughout Covid has been excellent and I feel lucky to work for such a successful business.

  • A true meritocracy - the sky is the limit in terms of career progression and is directly linked to performance. Perfect for anyone ambitious, with plenty of international opportunities available too. Earnings potential is excellent - uncapped commission scheme, generous benefits package and added extras for loyalty based on years' service (e.g. enhanced pension and commission, additional holidays).

  • Guidance, support, and the road map to success are the key pro's from Oliver James. I owe a lot to the people I have met in OJ in terms of personal and professional development. The incentives are great and the staff parties are incredible, technology-wise OJ invest in the best.

  • Oliver James has a very collaborative environment, both locally, and at global level. There is a sense of everyone wanting each other to excel and do well which creates a very enjoyable environment to work in. Learning and development is continuous at all levels and there is a defined career path within the business.

  • Motivated and helpful colleagues. Great work culture that spreads into team environment. Challenging you everyday to perform to your best and be successful. Training and benefits are unlike any other recruitment company.

  • Top management genuinely care about their people and show a real interest in getting to know them even as they grow. You feel like you are really part of something exciting. Their company events are fantastic and their socials are the same. They are ahead of their competitors in terms of technology, marketing, training, HR initiatives etc.

  • Promotions and rewards are based on performance and ability, not just how long you have worked for OJ. Managers will allow you to try new things, gain new knowledge, stretch your potential, and support you with all the training/coaching needed. Great culture, people, and office environment.
