After studying “Performance for Stage and Screen” at Undergraduate level, then following on to complete a Masters in “Events Management”, in October 2021 I started on the “Future Talent Scheme” at Oakleaf. Whilst Recruitment was never the plan, I have fallen into the role and not looked back since. Now, I have gained a great amount of knowledge and developed a range of skills which have helped me to become the confident Consultant I am today.

At Oakleaf, we split things up by industry, salary remit and interim/permanent role. I specialise in permanent HR roles, with salaries up to £60,000, in the Tech, Media, Telecommunication and B2B industries. Role-wise, I have placed HR Administrators to HR Business Partners and many in between, both generalist and specialist. The main reason this job is so enjoyable is due to the clients that I work with. Whether that is the company that made my phone, the network that provides my signal, the creators of the app that I’m addicted to or the producer of the programme I watch on my way to work, supporting these companies never gets boring.

I have learned that it is important to be an individual as a Recruitment Consultant, as a key factor of success is building strong relationships. I believe that honesty is the best policy and that respect is something that should be shown at all times, both in the workplace and out. This combination has got me this far in my career, so expect these themes if you require support from me at any point. Otherwise, I’m big on quality over quantity, in order to reduce wasted time and focus on those who can excel, so I am a trustworthy source for high-quality talent.

Away from work, I’m a bit of a mixed bag. I’m big into music (playing instruments and DJ’ing in my spare time) and have played rugby since a young age. Growing up in the Lake District, I like to get out and about and explore what nature has to offer, but now I’m a “city boy” I’m keen on going to events, bars and museums.

So, that’s me! If I can support you in any way shape or form, please don’t hesitate to get in touch. Otherwise, if you are looking for assistance but don’t believe my specialities align, please enquire and I shall put you in touch with someone who can help.
