Our services


Agency Pitch Consultants

Oystercatchers is the UK’s leading intermediary, placing in excess of £500m of fees with agencies in the UK and internationally.

Our unique pitch partnership process has been designed to maximise opportunities between agency and client relationships. As pitch consultants, we enable the agency and client teams to hit the ground running with a new sense of energy, stronger thinking and fresh ideas. We’ve dispensed with pointless RFPs, and directionless meetings, and instead we’ve put client ambition at the heart of every pitch we’re engaged on.

“Working with Oystercatchers on the pitch process for our media agency appointment was an enjoyable experience. The process allowed for us to see what it would be like working with the agencies in a ‘real’ environment and ensured there was a balance between chemistry and technical skill across both sides of the table.”
