‘I worked with Tristan. He was extremely professional and efficient and getting his job done. He was able to effectively match my skills with top jobs and provided every piece of information I needed to make a decision. A truly smooth and enjoyable experience.’
- N.A. regarding his experience with Oakstone Divisional Director, Tristan Heywood.
‘How many phone calls do I get from recruiters who don’t know my business, that don’t know the roles, that don’t know the industry, that when I give them the brief they don’t understand? With Oakstone, you understand me, you understand what I need, you understand my team culture and those things are important but also what I see in Oakstone is a company that knows the market place and knows people rather that someone who just knows CVs and knows profiles. ‘
- Mike Ferguson, VP EMEA, Redpoint Global
‘Companies work with Oakstone because they bring great value, integrity and honesty to the conversation. I’ve never found Oakstone to be afraid of saying it how it is – they give advice, guidance and insight to the market and have good quality candidates which are well coached and understand the opportunity - they are enthusiastic about coming to the initial sessions. I think it’s the full breadth and depth of professionalism across each aspect of the process that sets Oakstone apart.’
- Will Lovatt, General Manager, Pros Europe
‘I’ve been at Tealium for four years now and very shortly after joining I had a long session with Steve (Oakstone Divisional Director) where he dug into the details of our needs and requirements on a very granular level. We see each other very regularly, we talk on the phone regularly, Steve always checks in on the phone to make sure he’s capturing all the things we are trying to achieve and figuring out whether our needs and requirements are changing. This is something that not everyone does and very few recruiting organisations do that.
The track record speaks for itself – the candidates which have come through over the years from Oakstone have been really high quality and we have hired a lot of people off the back of introductions that Oakstone has made.’
- Phil Young, VP Sales, Tealium
‘The best thing about working with Oakstone deep, personal relationship. Early on in my time at Coupa we really relied on Oakstone to help and be an accelerant for us in Europe and the EMEA region. I think Oakstone is better than others because of their deep connections they build and they take their time to understand the culture of an organisation. In this industry a lot of individuals may be very strong but they’re not necessarily a good fit for the organisations, but by relying on Oakstone heavily we were able to really tune the individuals in terms of how they would fit within a particular organisation.’
- Alex Kliener, CEO Frictionless Holdings. Previous VP Customer Success, Coupa
‘Oakstone is better than any of the other recruiter we have used because they simply listen to our feedback. We don’t have people who are presented to us, who for example, are possibly going to move, they find candidates who are motivated candidates who are motivated to join us and Oakstone find those people in good time.’
- Matt Smith, Vice President of BGC Partners

His evident industry knowledge as well as pragmatic honest approach stand out amongst recruitment firms. It certainly gives candidates confidence as I’m sure it does for hiring clients.
