Talent Manager

Marie Robery-Bliss

Having spent nearly two years travelling the world I finally returned to London in 2003 and registered for temporary work at a large secretarial consultancy where I was offered a role as an consultant. Here I worked with a broad range of Financial Services organisations where I developed relationships across the city and eventually managed part of the highly successful temporary team!

I joined Oakleaf Partnership in 2011 and haven’t looked back!  As a Senior Manager on our Financial Services team for 9 years I focused on Senior HR interim roles as well as a stint on our Perm team.  I have recently moved into an exciting new role at Oakleaf as a Senior Manager within Talent & Business Development.

I like to have a busy social life and enjoy going to the theatre, socialising with friends and trying to keep fit!  I still love to travel but this has taken a back seat for a good few years after getting married and 2 x maternity leaves – I now have a 4 and 7 year old who keep me very busy!
