Client Testimonials

“We have had the pleasure of working with Oxford Solutions for the past several years. Prior to us working with Oxford, our IT staffing assignments were behind. In short order, we were fully staffed and running on all cylinders thanks to Oxford. The Oxford staff helped me through several staffing assignments, not to mention that they were also able to educate me on new technologies, salary ranges and also provided an overall insight as to what we should be looking for in a candidate’s background. Unfortunately for us the same positive experiences have not been felt working with other companies.”


“I have worked with Oxford Solutions for many years and with multiple organizations. When I left my former firm and was hired as the Chief Human Resources Officer of my current firm, Oxford was one of the first vendors that I called. They are good at finding niche, hard-to-find technical employees and are great at building positive relationships. They excel because they consistently provide us with high-quality candidates on a rapid basis and have developed a personalized sense for our needs – they know us and our culture which allows them to meet our needs. We will continue to consider Oxford Solutions as our top vendor of choice.”


Oxford Solutions has become our solution to the difficult staffing requirements that we have found ourselves faced with this past year. Oxford has provided several qualified candidates in a timely manner for each position that we have contacted them for and have resulted in the placement of several excellent people that we are happy to say are wonderful additions to our workforce. They have made believers out of several of our managers that had reservations about using a staffing firm! I am more than satisfied with the service and the quality of people that we have received, and I will continue to use Oxford Solutions for our staffing needs and I would recommend them to companies that are looking to fill their needs and to people that are looking for employment opportunities.”

Engineering Resources

When providing highly specialized services, particularly in the engineering field, it is important to begin with a thorough understanding of what is truly needed. We bring depth and experience to the table, having worked for the past 15 years with Western PA’s largest and most well-known engineering firms to span manufacturing, construction and engineering consulting services. We are known for our ability to understand and translate our clients’ needs.

Information Technology Resources

Oxford Solutions is a proven performer when it comes to identifying and providing the most highly talented information technology resources in the area. We have provided highly skilled IT resources to both startups and Fortune-ranked companies. From Programming to Project Management, our highly talented staff has been working directly with technology skill sets for over 15 years, so we know what to look for and how to qualify technology experience and depth.

Accounting/Financial Resources

Oxford’s highly specialized recruitment services include depth and experience in the areas of accounting and finance. We understand the importance of integrity and strict attention to detail in highly sensitive financial matters, which is why we place particular emphasis on the thoroughness of our recruiting methodology when working with financial professionals.

There are many different opinions regarding the benefits and perceived risks associated with contract work, but with more than 15 years of experience focused on this model, we have come to find the following positive reasons to consider staffing assignments:

  • A great opportunity to gain real-world ‘job experience’ for an individual that is just entering the workforce.
  • An opportunity to work in an environment for a fair amount of time to evaluate whether it is an appropriate fit for your career.
  • Access to the “hidden job market.”
  • Great resume builder, ability to get prestigious company names on your resume, while gaining valuable experience.
  • An excellent way to experience different corporate cultures, tackle new challenges, and avoid company politics.
  • Flexibility.
  • An efficient way to network, meet new people, sharpen social skills.

Time and Expense Reporting

Oxford Solutions provides the ability to enter your hours worked on a weekly basis online through a system known as SpringAhead. It is possible to enter hours worked at any time during a work-week period, either every day, or at the end of the work week, but hours are due in the system on a weekly basis no later than 10:00 a.m. each Monday morning.

For instructions for getting set up on the SpringAhead system click here (.pdf).

As a company policy, Oxford does not mail pay stubs to your home address. In the event that you  need to see your pay stub, you will be able to go online, log in and view/download your pay stub through our ADP portal. This will prevent delays through the mail and will give you access to all of your pay stubs when needed.

Expense Reporting

Expense reports are handled independently of the SpringAhead system. It is important to note that all expenses turned in for reimbursement must be approved and signed by a client manager to be considered valid and reimbursable. You may download the following expense sheet for use, and it may be returned to Oxford Solutions at the same time you are entering hours for the week.
