George K. – Compliance Officer at JTC Group
Doug initially reached out to discuss a role with me that was not the right fit. Doug took the time to discuss my experience and aspirations prior to even broaching the subject of the role. After taking the time to listen, he did not attempt to sell me on the position but rather politely acknowledged that it was not the right career move for me. From there my experience with Doug and OFC, was one in which I felt as though he presented me roles best suited for my career rather than attempting to sell me on opportunities that employers were asking him to fill.
The OFC experience for me was one in which communication was flexible via a face to face consultation, mobile discussions and whatsapp updates and real time feedback. Doug made himself available during and after standard business hours.
In the end through Doug’s network and commitment to ensuring mutually beneficial relationships between prospective employer and candidate, I have successfully landed a great new opportunity for my career. Doug deftly balances his responsibilities to his corporate clients whilst investing in his candidates to ensure their next role is in their best interests.

Doug’s one to one approach is a breath of fresh air; He genuinely took the time to fully understand what I wanted to do with my career and found me suitable roles that I was genuinely interested in. His continued support during the process of handing in my notice to negotiating salary really smoothed over that difficult transition. I’d recommend Doug and OFC Partners to anyone who’s got itchy feet!

I worked with Doug in securing a new role in the London insurance market, having previously worked in the Dublin market. I found Doug to be be highly professional and knowledgeable about the market and the roles available. Doug took the time to get to know me, my work experience and my career aspirations. This effort, along with his extensive network of key client contacts in the industry, meant he was able to place me with the right role, the right company and the right team. Finally, Doug kept me informed of the process the whole way through and, in my opinion, went above and beyond to ensure it was as smooth as possible and that the best result for all parties was achieved.
