Principal | Executive

Penny Daniels

After graduating in English, I joined Hays in Reading, and was quickly leading the regional HR function. Within this role, I developed a passion for working with innovative technology companies in the Thames Valley who needed fresh-thinking senior HR support. After 2 1/2 years I was approached to join specialist HR firm Annapurna, and made the move to London. Here I lead the Generalist HR Team and worked the £100k+ market within Tech and Media.

At both Annapurna and most recently Investigo, I have forged a strong name for myself within the London market for Senior HR search. I am delighted to be joining Oakleaf which I have always regarded as a highly specialist and respected company in the HR recruitment space.

I spend my spare time with my two children Ziggy and Pixie, and my dog Sausage, and enjoy writing, reading and working out.

What better way to change peoples attitudes about working from home, flexible and part-time work than a self-isolation inducing health pandemic causing world-wide city lockdowns! Really interesting piece from Penny Daniels...
