After graduating from University of Wales, Swansea in English Literature in 2007, I started my career in the recruitment industry at Michael Page International in London. I joined their graduate scheme specialising in secretarial recruitment within Financial Services and Professional services. After a great eight years in the secretarial field, I decided to specialise in HR and grow my career at Oakleaf Partnership. Oakleaf have strong company values, a strong leadership team and deep rooted customer relationships - I wanted to be part of that!
Within Oakleaf Partnership, I am a Senior Manager in our growing regions business. Our reputation has allowed us to grow and nurture excellent relationships across the Midlands, North and Scotland. I am responsible for permanent recruitment across the Midlands, North & Scotland for roles with salaries up to £70k.
Outside of work, I love watching Rugby and enjoy time at home living on the outskirts of the Peak District. I enjoy travelling to new countries so try to get in as much holiday time throughout the year as possible.

I have worked with Becky in my current and previous company, she is incredibly knowledgeable about the HR market and offers a professional and personalised service to her clients. Most recently I asked her to conduct a purely speculative search with a tough brief and found that, with her team she delivered a quality shortlist of candidates quickly and seamlessly despite knowing the role may not come to fruition in the short term. It is this level of service that sets her apart from others! From junior to senior level briefs, I have no hesitation in recommending Becky a ‘recruitment’ partner.

Becky always takes the time to really understand the client, the candidate and the role, allowing her to act as a true consultant and navigate the complex requirements on both sides of a recruitment process. Having been on the candidate side with many recruitment agencies over my career, I have often been left frustrated at the lack of understanding and communication from consultants. When Becky first spoke to me about a role as Head of Learning & Development at onefinestay, I was working as an L&D Manager at Burberry and this would not have been a role I would have thought to apply for. However with her keen understanding of what onefinestay were looking for in experience and culture fit, she knew immediately that this was a great career move for me and strongly encouraged me to go and meet with the VP of People, and I never looked back. Becky always has a friendly, helpful and professional attitude and has been a pleasure to work with as a candidate, and now a client.
