Leading distance learning provider, Open Study College, has announced the launch of ‘OSC Recruitment’ a subdivision dedicated to enhancing its offering for job seekers and employers alike.

Headed up by specialist recruitment consultant Jak Whitehouse, Assoc. CIPD MREC, who has more than 15 years’ experience in the industry, the new division will focus on sourcing and placing talented individuals, from its existing pool of students searching for jobs and those further afield too. From CV writing and critique workshops, interview tips and sessions, to employability guidance and career advice, OSC Recruitment will provide direct career planning and job seeking assistance.

Jak Whitehouse, Recruitment and Careers Co-ordinator at OSC Recruitment, said:

“Open Study College is already supporting thousands of people by enhancing their career prospects via distance learning courses, so this is a really natural next step for the business and its ethos, as it comes full circle and is now able to support its students even further to secure employment and start their dream careers.

“I’ll also be using my in-depth knowledge in the industry to help other businesses recruit high quality talent, aiming to make the recruitment process a seamless one for both our clients and candidates.”

Within its first month, OSC Recruitment has already secured an endorsement from one happy client as it sourced a number of high-quality candidates for a recent vacancy.

“The whole process from start to finish was an incredibly professional and supportive one, completely removing any stress from the recruitment experience. Jak consistently provides the highest quality service, is fully engaged in the process, and truly wants what’s best for both the employer and the employee, as well as having a wonderful understanding of the candidate’s individual qualities and how they are applicable to our needs.
