“OSP has focused exclusively and continuously on personnel because industry needs skilled, qualified, motivated people to grow our economy. It’s clear to me that the UK can really benefit from the quality of skilled workers around the world; so I made it my business to travel internationally as well as locally to source a talented workforce and I have been pleasantly surprised by the enthusiasm of our candidates, the immediate support of clients and the rapid growth and development of the company.
I think what sets us apart is that we keep our eye on the ball at all times and have a passionate desire to win for our clients.
