Born in Matosinhos, Oliveira's senior career spanned 12 seasons, nine of which were spent in the top division where he appeared in a total of 220 games, scoring 11 goals.

After working with former club Leixões as director of football in 2008–09, Oliveira resumed his career in the second division, with C.D. Trofense, C.D. Aves, F.C. Arouca and Moreirense FC. He achieved several promotions during his career.
