After graduating from Nottingham University with a 1st class degree in Business & Management, I joined Accenture Plc (global Management Consultancy) as a client facing Management Consultant, specialising in delivering global Talent, Learning and HR Change Management projects, working primarily in the financial services industry.
In search of a new challenge, I transitioned into recruitment where I could utilise my existing HR & industry-based skills in another fast-paced, consultative and client facing role.
My first recruitment focused position was with Michael Page, managing permanent Strategy, Change and Projects related assignments. Following this, I joined Robert Walters where I managed the HR Practice, supporting client across financial and professional services markets.
I joined Oakleaf Partnership due to my passion for the HR discipline specifically. I wanted to be part of a market leading HR specialist with a boutique feel where I could focus on more senior positions with a broad customer base. I lead our “core HR” financial services business at Oakleaf and my team cover; HR Generalist, Learning & Talent, Recruitment, Employee Relations, HR Projects / Change, HR Operations and Diversity & Inclusion roles from entry level up to £110,000 base salary, covering permanent, contract and temp hiring.
In my spare time, I enjoy socialising with friends and family, travelling and visiting the lovely restaurants and bars that London has to offer.
Internal annual salary reviews are typically 2-3% excluding promotions where individuals typically incur a £5,000-£15,000 increase depending upon individual skills, experience & role scope.
These tips will ensure you go in confident and prepared for your next interview
