With 100% year-on-year organic growth, Oho Group are on a roll. Their key to success is building consultants’ market knowledge with a bespoke training programme, and they operate across electronic engineering, IT, finance and consulting.
Rewind to 2007, to a storage facility in Battersea, from humble beginnings The Oho Group grew quickly. Within a year we had knocked through the wall to take the unit next door and in year 2 week took down the other wall to grow further. Now with offices in Victoria we are a new breed of tech recruiter with a casual atmosphere and serious ambition. Having only hired our team from graduates and grown from within we are now looking to open our doors to experienced recruiters to capitalise on the opportunity our core markets present.
Team Holiday in Lyon

2015 Recruitment Awards Finalist: Most inspirational leader in the recruitment industry
At the Oho Group we believe very strongly in the importance of… going on company holidays! Not only is it great for relaxation and to take a break from the demands of the business, it also helps us to grow as a team and strengthen the Oho bond. On the last Company Holiday we packed our bags on Thursday evening and took off to Dubrovnik for the weekend. Prague, Malta, Lyon, Lanzarote and Porto are just a few of the many places we have been to.
We think our commission scheme is competitive and rewards peak performance. It looks like this : £0-14,999 @ 10% Once you hit £15,000 in a month you then earn 20% on anything over £10,000 £15,000+ per month @ 20% However it can get really great, really quickly... Get to over £60,000 in a quarter and you will earn 30% on everything else you bill above that. Plus, bill big and anything over £400,000 is paid @ 40% We knew we had a really great scheme, now we know we are up there with the best in the business. We were recently featured in a LinkedIn post by Hunted themselves on the 6 Best Commission schemes in the industry & we were there!
Traditionally we have recruited graduates and grown organically, however due to our continued success and the opportunities this has generated we are looking to bring experienced consultants into our business and maximise the opportunities we have. We are looking to grow and to expand the business further and believe we can offer rapid career progression, competitive earning potential and a great office environment. We expect our employees to work hard, this in turn is matched by the rewards on offer as well as the vibrant, ambitious and friendly culture.

Recruitment Fight Night
At the Oho Group we work hard - and get well rewarded for it. We run some pretty awesome incentives to keep the teams motivated to go that extra mile in their work - which is what makes us outstanding as a company. What about an all expenses paid holiday, featuring luxury hotels, eating at the best restaurants and partying in the best clubs? Or a £500 cash bonus to put in your pocket? Or what about a crazy night out on the town with your team, all paid for on the company card? Whatever it might be, we make sure our consultants get well rewarded for the work they put in.
And so we did it! The industry’s inaugural Recruitment Fight Night event took place on the 27th October 2017. After all the organising and commitment and training by the boxers the evening was an amazing success. We wanted to create an industry specific event, we wanted to create positivity for the industry, we wanted to have fun and raise money to support young people to find, gain and stay in work We raised over £10,000 on the night for OPERA Global Youth Foundation to directly provide the means for young people to transform their lives, with the help of you, the recruitment industry. We are looking forward to doing it all again next year, so why not join us at the event as a member of our team.
Our Directors and Managers are all ambitious, involved & approachable. We work directly with our teams on the sales floor and can provide you with the assistance and guidance you need. We are happy to get our hands dirty, get out the office with you and see clients and work to develop you professionally and personally.

Oho's Christmas Party 2018
We believe that our values are the building block of our culture. They are authentic, dynamic and inform how we work internally and externally.

Our "Living the Values" winners get half the day off and are being treated to a Lunch Club for an amazing food experience and a massive food coma. Our Values: Socially Intelligent Inquisitive Motivated Conscientious Humble
Looking fancy at Recruitment Fight Night!
The key to our success is the people working here and we are proud of the individuals that we take on. The environment in our offices is supportive and collaborative and as we strive everyday to improve and develop we also have lots of fun throughout the week just being together as a group.

Our Head of HR Kristina @ Epsom Ladies' Day
"I joined the Oho Group as a fresh graduate less than a month after my last exam at Sheffield University. I was eager to join the world of work and push my career forward, and thanks to the truly organic growth structure in place at the Oho Group I was able to achieve excellent progression through my training (OCTP), into a consultant role and most recently becoming a Senior Consultant all within a year. I am proud of my successes, I have cleared my student debts, my first mortgage has been approved and I have developed excellent market knowledge. Its all been hard work but the rewards have more than justified the late nights. I'm looking forward to my continued progression and hope I will be able to be managing my own team within a year."
Epsom Ladies Day is one of our annual client events. A great opportunity to meet industry influencer's in a fun and informal setting, well on the top of an open top Route-master for starters . Overall an awesome day with lots of food, cake and Pimm's
