What we do
A Specialist Recruitment Company
The business was founded on the desire to provide a refined recruitment offering, stripping away unwanted components in order to deliver an effective, streamlined service. Oliver wanted to create a brand which concentrated on a relatively small number of very active clients in the Industrial sector, but delivered exceptional results.
We are confident and proven in our ability to complete many different types of recruitment assignment, from senior executive searches to volume hiring at the mid-level, and even market-mapping projects.
Oliver has over 10 years’ recruitment experience across Chemicals, Plastics, Packaging, Industrial Equipment, Energy and Logistics. He works with a small group of clients to deliver a recruitment service they want to recommend – prioritising the specific needs of each search, the hiring company culture, and acting as the best ambassador for your business.
‘After working in recruitment ever since leaving university, I realised (especially in the last 5-6 years) that I love the job. I wanted to build a business around my own values in this industry, and provide what I have come to learn that clients really value. I really enjoy working with cool, cutting-edge companies in what can sometimes be disregarded as a stuffy, old-fashioned sector. Building (and more importantly) maintaining relationships is key to this business, and I pride myself on a strong candidate reach, and exemplary feedback.
“Southall Sage” comes from names in my family – a major motivation for me each day. Over the last few years, learning how to get better results whilst spending more time with family has been a huge driving force behind this independent venture. What you get when you partner with Southall Sage is an honest and focussed service, drawing on my experience, network and drive.’
What we do
If the brief is not something that we can fully satisfy, we will let you know. Managing expectations is crucial when hiring – for all parties involved – and we are always reachable to keep processes running smoothly or address urgent needs.
Hiring is frequently a top priority for most companies, and we understand that, so will set realistic deadlines and milestones, and hit them.
From a decade in recruitment, we know honest, consultative advice is the best way to guarantee the result for both the hiring company and Southall Sage.
The best connections come from recommendations and good feedback. Every project is undertaken with this at the forefront of our mind.
Thank you to Oliver for bringing this candidate, very strong and very good fitting with our culture and growth strategy! You have been able to rapidly identify a group of very strong and motivated candidates.
You delivered on expectation and would not hesitate to recommend your services.
Oliver contacted me for an opportunity in the chemical industry which was interesting and a good fit regarding my background. Oliver has been supportive and professional to better understand the role, he help me to be confident in all my exchange and interviews.
I strongly recommend Oliver to help you for your next professional challenge.
Although Oliver was a new recruiter for us, I was very much impressed with the quick understanding around our company culture, and the ability to applying that in the search profiles.
The recruiting process was fast: quickly a good set of candidates, fast responses on questions, well executed account management with the 2 searches in parallel.
Oliver helped me to find, not just any job, but the right job and one where the conditions were such that I would be fully motivated. They followed up quickly on all points and were both flexible and honest in his communication and approach and I feel he has pride in doing a great job.
I would fully recommend Oliver to anyone out there either looking to fill or find a new position.
