How OSL Recruitment Works

Quality and speed are vital in recruitment, and we offer an unrivalled understanding of the market. Only after a deep dive into your business and recruitment requirements, will we begin searching out candidates with the most suitable skills and technical capabilities for the roles available.


Our specialist technical recruiters use our network of contacts developed over decades in the industry to get ahead of job boards. Through conversations with potential candidates, our team will rigorously vet all individuals via interviews and technical assessments. Only proposing people when we are certain that are a fit and have a genuine interest in your role.

We engage with our candidates, spending time gaining a solid understanding of their motivations, job role ideals, behaviours and commitment to a role change. These points are regularly revisited, and any revisions are shared with our clients as we move through the recruitment process. We call this our OSL Candidate Management Process and it enables us to recruit effectively for our clients whilst also delivering an effective service to our candidates.

Unlike other recruiters, we have access to leading engineers who are available to look over CVs or sit in on interviews to ensure that the best candidate is placed in the role.
