Our Talent Communities

To better serve our clients and candidates, we have built up a range of strategic partnerships. These include:

X Forces in Human Resources

The aim of XFHR is to bring together those who have previously served and are now working in the Human Resources profession.

The intention is to meet every 6 months and share a few beers, a few stories and ideas on how to "Raise The Bar" in HR.

Reward 101

Reward 101 was created as a group to bring together and support rising Reward talent as they set out their career in Reward and Analytics.

Founded by Harold Ejele and Liz Kerry, to enable and facilitate the sharing of ideas, knowledge and to allow Reward professionals to network amongst peers. Whether you have been a Reward Analyst for several years or are an analytically minded professional wanting to make that first step into the world of Compensation and Benefits, this is the group for you!

This group was founded in conjunction with the Oakleaf Academy which began in 2015 to support HR specialists in their early careers. We mirror the aim to nurture and support talent in the HR community, but with a focus on junior Reward.

We will be hosting future sessions which will support career development and will be led by senior Reward professionals who will offer insights and talk through their career journey - how they navigated through and overcame obstacles, their successes and challenges. We hope this will offer a unique and invaluable opportunity to ask questions and expand your personal network of like-minded, ambitious Reward professionals.

We welcome your questions, advice, and look forward to welcoming you into the Reward 101 community.

Women in Reward

Women in Reward opens the door to a specialist community of professional women that operate specifically within the Reward & Analytics space. This group is an open forum where we can discuss hot topics in the market, share opinions and knowledge as well as attend both professional networking events and social gatherings.

Women is Reward is designed to help the female reward community make lasting and fruitful new contacts/friendships. This group encourages everyone to get involved with discussions and promotes best practise in Reward. We all have very different experiences which we can all learn from, and therefore to enable us to contribute and gain as much as possible from Women in Reward, we would welcome your questions, advice and of course your humorous anecdotes!

Australian / New Zealand Network Group

peoplecorpOur Aussie and Kiwi network was brought about from our partnership with Peoplecorp - one of Sydney’s top HR recruitment specialists. By partnering with them, we can offer our customers a seamless service in (and out of) Australia.

Peoplecorp’s values align themselves to Oakleaf’s - they have a strong reputation for being highly attentive to client and candidate needs. They cover both permanent and contract markets and their jobs range from early career to HR Director level.

For Aussies returning home, we can put you in contact with the right people at Peoplecorp and even set up a meeting in preparation for your landing in Sydney.

If you’re an HR professional seeking an opportunity in Australia, either as part of a working holiday or to add some interesting international experience to your career, then let us know and we’ll take it from there.

Remember though, you will need the right type of visa to qualify for work there.
