On Wednesday Oakleaf ran a Workplace Mental Health Roundtable in conjunction with Hewlett Rand for senior HR professionals
Senior Manager Zoe Bradley shares details on what has been an emotional and traumatic 6 months, and how Oakleaf have helped her transition back to work...
The number of graduate vacancies in the UK has increased by 37% year-on-year, with 15,732 entry-level roles advertised in the past month.
"Having previously worked with Oakleaf as a client, Zoe reached out to me when discoverinfg that I was looking for a new role and she has been a delight to work with throughout. In a candidate heavy, job light market, Zoe took the time to truly understand the type of role (in terms of seniority and scope) and company that I was looking for and managed to find me a great match. Personable, always checking in and informative about the interviews, I'd recommend Zoe to anyone looking for a more consultative approach to recruitment."
"Oakleaf have been wonderful to work with and have been great in every department. I couldn't recommend them enough from my personal experience. Zoe has been a delight, easy to get hold of and has been a joy to work with. If I've had a query, I know she would get back to me and help where she can! Couldn't recommend her enough!"
''Zoe contacted me regarding an opportunity within Whitbread. When we spoke about the role, she listened to my career aspiration along with my salary expectations. Given the market climate and despite being unemployed throughout the pandemic period, she helped me secure a promotional opportunity very quickly, in fact in matter of days. She has regularly contacted me throughout my assignment and offered me any additional support, specifically, with my onboarding process. I have been very impressed with Zoe's professionalism and how she goes about managing both her candidate and client's expectations. I would happily recommend Zoe as a candidate and a future client."
My experience with Oakleaf has been excellent. I've worked with Zoe Bradley and Sarah Alexander, and both are very professional, caring and diligent in the way they work with me and the company I've been interviewing with. Zoe has been relentless in finding me the right role. I also went to a Future Leaders event on 5th July which was excellent. I met a lot of the Oakleaf team, and everyone was very personable and friendly.
I feel very thankful to have found my way to Oakleaf, I've had one of the best experiences I've had with a recruiter and really enjoyed working with Zoe and her colleague Gareth. I will certainly recommend Oakleaf Partnership to my growing HR network in the UK from now on.

I write this testimonial following my experience as a candidate registered with Oakleaf. I was new to the London recruitment market and was actively seeking a permanent or contract role in Human Resources, preferably within the Financial Services sector. I was introduced to a number of London based agencies including Oakleaf as a boutique HR specialist agency. During my entire association with Oakleaf, I found them to be highly professional, ethical and strongly values based. Unlike their competitors, I found Oakleaf focusing not only on their clients but also on their candidates for without both, an effective placement could not result. In particular, I found Zoe and Michelle to be highly efficient in following up and providing necessary feedback. They too provided a ‘human’ element, so important during what is often a challenging period for candidates when seeking employment opportunities. I would highly recommend Oakleaf services to potential employers and people seeking new career opportunities. Keep up the good work!
