Ella is currently on maternity leave.
I graduated from Oxford Brookes University with a 1st class BSc in Nutrition and Health. After graduating I went straight into the world of recruitment, focusing on junior temporary HR positions. Realising my passion for recruitment and the HR discipline I decided to join Oakleaf Partnership in 2013. I wanted to be part of a market leading boutique HR recruitment agency where I could continue to grow and learn from the best.
In 2015, I relocated to Geneva and spent 3 wonderful years there. Enjoying lake life, skiing, eating cheese and learning the lingo. Whilst I was in Switzerland I focussed on recruiting for mid and top management level positions in the commodities industry.
England and my love for HR recruitment was calling me back. I am thrilled to be able to be part of Oakleaf Partnership again, it is great to see how it has grown and developed in the 3 years that I have been away.
I have joined to manage the recruitment of mid to senior roles across the M3 and M4 corridor. I am excited to further develop this area and expand on our existing client and candidate relationships.
Outside of work I like to have a busy social life, and travel as much as possible exploring different cuisines and cultures. Sport is also a big passion of mine, I love a park run, skiing and playing netball. I am also number one fans of my younger rugby playing brothers Dominic and Oliver who play for Saracens.
Having taken on a new role I had an urgent need to strengthen the team to meet the demands of an ambitious people agenda. I contacted Richard and the team without hesitation with high confidence they'd meet the brief. Richard assigned Ella Milligan to support the search given her knowledge of the region and strong network. She was a total delight to partner with - professional, knowledgeable, responsive and hard working. One of the roles in particular was a tough brief, but Ella's diligence and expertise delivered. I got strong candidates throughout and found the two senior additions to my team who are both outstanding. Quick, seamless, professional and personal service. Great job. Highly recommend Oakleaf and Ella.
