Our Approach


Our mission is to always ‘add value’

Going the extra mile for our clients and our candidates isn’t just part of the job…it’s part of who we are. Matching the right individual with the right role…or, indeed, the right company to the right person…is engrained into our day-to-day activities. It’s part of our corporate DNA. It’s in our blood. We run our business with a strong, multi-faceted philosophy.

  • Our reputation in the industry is paramount
  • Working with, and retaining, our existing clients is as important to us, as is winning new ones. In some instances we have been working with the same clients for over 10 years!
  • We believe that word of mouth recommendation is what grows our business year on year. That’s built off our existing clients referring us onto other clients and candidates
  • Strong relationships and excellent networking are essential for growth in our industry

 High and low

We are a million miles away from a database agency. We search everywhere to focus on the right person for the right role. We offer a personal service…and make it our business to get to know your needs inside out and our candidates’ profiles and ambitions.

Discretion and trust

At The Oval Partnership our word is our bond. The nature of the recruitment industry revolves around discretion and trust. We work for some of the most influential companies in the food and drink industry, and some of the most high calibre individuals. What happens in our interviews…stays in our interviews.
