After graduating with a Bachelors in Social Studies (majoring in Organisational Psychology & Industrial Sociology) from Rhodes University in South Africa, I decided to kick start my career and move to London. I’ve always had an interest in Human Resources and thrive working in a busy, vibrant environment and as a result I made it no further than the recruitment company I registered with.
I have spent the last two successful years working in the interim HR market before joining the interim Financial & Professional Services team here at Oakleaf Partnership. I plan to continue to build strong relationships with both my clients and candidates and build a successful desk.
I like to have a busy social life and love to travel as much as possible, socialising with friends and trying to keep fit! I’m always looking for interesting things to do in London and make regular trips to the theatre, museums and London’s fantastic food and wine markets.
Is working on your culture just about making your company a nice place to work, or is it really a financial issue? Can your culture actually make you money?

I just want to say thank you and again convey how impressed I am with Oakleaf. I've dealt with many recruitment companies in my time and this experience has been, by far, the most positive. You are all lovely, extremely knowledgeable and dedicated, and seem to fully understand the markets you're working in.

I have had the pleasure of working with Dominique at Oakleaf Partnerships on my past few Job searches which have all been successful. Dominique is very professional in her approach and takes the time to find out exactly what you are looking for and has thorough discussions with you on your background and experience to enable her to find the perfect role for you! I'd definitely recommend Dominique to all Senior HR professionals to help with their future job searches.

She has a wide network and has demonstrated a deep knowledge of her market, succinctly describing the key points of the role and organization she’s representing.
