Who We Are


Our team consists of people who come from and understand the industry. We are currently one of the largest creative staffing companies in the US founded over a decade ago. We opened up our London office in 2014 under the leadership of OS founding member Doug Noble. In 2016, we acquired a local company, Move Agency, and brought on their founder Chris Haslam to lead our team. In early 2017, Paul Finan, joined as Joint Director to help strengthen the leadership team. All these chaps bring with them a wealth of relationships from within the industry—clients and talent alike. They create the foundation on which we intend to build our business in this ever-expanding market.

We recruit for a handful of creative disciplines that we know a lot about, rather than tackling a bit of everything. That means a deep and genuine engagement with our niche community and its issues, conversations, events.

We set ourselves apart from other agencies by the personalised way we do business. We like to get to know our clients and talent to understand their underlying needs and help create the best match for each side. This translates into good, honest relationships that help us grow.
