New Appointment – Julia Hale – Associate Director


In my previous article reflecting on the past 10 years running Oyster, I mentioned the need to keep moving the business forward and I am, therefore, thrilled and delighted to announce that Julia Hale has joined Oyster Search and Selection as Associate Director.

Julia will spearhead the development of Oyster’s HR recruitment offering, particularly outside of London, supporting and advising our existing clients with their regional requirements and developing new clients in other sectors. Equally, Julia will be focused on developing her network of talented and experienced HR professionals, acting for and advising them on their next career move.

A true industry professional and Fellow of the Institute of Recruiters (FIRP), Julia has over 25 years’ experience working with exceptional talent across a corporate and high-profile client base. Having co-founded and developed a leading, professional recruitment company over 18 years, Julia subsequently retained her role as MD to help integrate her business following a successful sale in 2015. We’re delighted that Julia has subsequently decided to join Oyster.

Having known Julia for more than 15 years and having collaborated with one another in the past, I know firsthand what an exceptional recruitment professional she is, not least in terms of her unswerving commitment to client service and to best representing candidates in the market place. I also know that Julia shares our commitment to fostering long term relationships with clients and candidates alike and that she has the integrity, professionalism and human touch people tell us that they value about us.

We look forward to working with you in the year ahead and, whether you are a client or candidate, please do feel free to contact either myself or Julia in the meantime should you have anything you wish to discuss with us.
