Buddy Scheme

‘We’ve always prided ourselves on Oakleaf’s culture and We are a Community is the first of our values. We’re also keenly aware that joining a new business in a hybrid setting can be difficult. Gone are the days of working in the office full time and having everyone around you!

With that in mind, we have a successful Buddy Scheme for all new starters.

Whether this is your first job in sales or you’re a senior recruiter coming with an established portfolio, you’ll be paired with an OP colleague to bounce ideas off and help integrate with the wider business. We’re all in this together!’

Providing the onboarding support you’d expect from OP


“My buddy is fabulous! There when I need them for a wine and a natter!

With hybrid working it is easy to stay within your team, The buddy scheme is a great way to have that support network in a different area of the business!

Everyone needs a buddy like mine 😊  “

Manager hire

“I know my buddy well from working together, however since I came back from mat leave, she has gone above and beyond to help me settle back into the office. She is always there to help whether it’s getting my bearings round the new office, help with a candidate or just an ear to listen about work and childcare juggling. 

I cannot thank her enough for her ongoing support and you should know how invaluable this support has been. 

Loving the Buddy scheme”
