After graduating I fell into the world of recruitment. I initially recruited within the office support space before moving into change management and business transformation.
In 2013 I decided to explore the world and enjoyed it so much I didn’t go home! I joined Oakleaf to be a part of a market leading brand that is committed to providing a high touch service to its customers.
I am responsible for Oakleaf's interim business and recruit across the senior interim space looking after positions £50-110,000 across Tech, Media, Telco and B2B. I focus on developing relationships with people and place a strong emphasis on understanding an organisations culture and values to ensure a successful hire.
Outside of work I enjoy most things to do with food – dining out, cooking and drinking wine. I am a keen traveller and have been fortunate enough to travel to over 40 countries. I also enjoy skiing, hiking and gardening. I love animals and have a rescue cat who is adorable – Arthur.
Oakleaf Partnership Limited's interim lead, Brittany Newell, talks to Nina Berezowski about the role of effective performance management in driving high performance.
Brittany Newell shares some key thoughts from our Commerce & Industry Roundtable this morning
Attracting talent starts from the candidate's first interaction with your company and leaves a lasting impression whether that process resulted in being hired – or not
The morning was chaired by Ama Afrifa-Tchie, People Experience Director at iTEch Media
Brittany understood our requirements immediately and within a couple of days I had some excellent candidates, several of whom could have filled the role. I have rarely found an agency as responsive and helpful as I have found Oakleaf - they certainly understand their specialism, which makes it all the easier for the hiring manager.

I read your first update where you mentioned that given that a number of your Oakleaf colleagues were on furlough, the Oakleaf service may not be as good as it could be.
I wanted to let you know how impressed I've been by Brittany. Really professional and seems to be working all hours to ensure that I (as the candidate) receive a great service.
I feel very supported and she had kept me up to date on all developments.
She is a real asset to the Oakleaf family.
