"Why did you choose to join Oscar?"

Having worked part-time in a telesales role throughout my studies, I felt that this was a position that would challenge and push me out of my comfort zone.

I had several interviews when searching for my first graduate job but what attracted me to Oscar was the innovative training scheme they offer for graduates and the feeling of success I got from the open plan working environment, which was buzzing with activity.

"What training have you received?"

From day one, the training process was invaluable. Training is on-going and delivered by experienced directors and consultants, who provide helpful feedback and proactive support.

The training scheme covers every aspect of the job, and with a delivery manager on site you always have the opportunity to work on any areas where you feel you may need additional help.

"How has your career developed?"

I am now coming up to my third year with Oscar and have already started to build a team around me, having reached Lead Consultant level. This has been a great opportunity for me to experience a managerial role at a young age which has been incredibly rewarding and exemplifies how Oscar values your continued progression and offers a long-term career path.

It is a great feeling to be involved with a successful business who invest heavily into their employees and offer them opportunities across the world.

"What does it take to be successful at Oscar?"

To be successful in recruitment it is essential to have a resilient approach and a strong work ethic. With the support and training provided at Oscar you are never far away from someone who can guide you through to success.

The sense of achievement when placing a candidate in their dream job or finding the right candidate for a business critical role for your client is definitely worth it!
