I am really pleased to say that the consultant at Oakleaf has done a really good job, she met with the candidate, talked through the JD in detail to ensure the candidate had a thorough understanding of the role as well as EY as well as chase the priority tasks. Julia really put the candidate at ease and upsold interviewing and working at EY. All in all I think Julia has done a really good job - it's a gold standard example of external agencies partnering with us.
Hiring Manager, EY
I just want to say thank you and again convey how impressed I am with Oakleaf. I've dealt with many recruitment companies in my time and this experience has been, by far, the most positive. You are all lovely, extremely knowledgeable and dedicated, and seem to fully understand the markets you're working in.
HR Projects & Governance Manager, Prudential
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’ve only worked with Rebecca for a short amount of time, but Becky’s professionalism was evident from day one. Becky has made a difficult recruitment process a lot easier with her prompt responses, frequent updates and overall hard work. Becky has maintained a positive, cheerful demeanour throughout the recruitment process. I look forward to working with Becky a lot more in the very near future.
Recruitment Advisor, EY
"It is so refreshing to meet a Recruitment Company that places as much importance on candidate management as client management. Oakleaf impressed me from the moment we started talking - Rebecca and Sarah have both taken time to get an accurate understanding of my job search requirements which translates to a more worthwhile exchange when a suitable vacancy arises."
Clare Tipton, HR Manager
I had a fantastic experience working with Naomi Barton after relocating to the UK from Australia. Naomi provided me with candidate feedback and support in identifying suitable roles in which I could deliver value to employers. I found Naomi’s approach to be highly reliable, honest and friendly. Naomi kept in touch during each stage of the recruitment process and provided support from a ‘local’ to help me relocate to the UK and get settled. Even more impressive was the post-placement support from Naomi to check in on how I was doing. It has been by far one of the best candidate experiences I have had and would have no hesitation in recommending Naomi and Oakleaf.
Patrick Caldwell, Head of People - Affinity Water
Service oriented, honest, and highly competent: Gareth Evans epitomises the characteristics of a true professional in the recruitment space. I had the pleasure of working with Gareth as he represented me in my first job search in London. He spent time understanding my value proposition to employers and utilised the skill of his team to think more broadly about roles that might be of interest. I was particularly impressed with Gareth’s commitment to keeping in touch to provide feedback at each stage of the process, to ensure both cultural and skill fit. Gareth comes with my heartfelt recommendation and I wish him every success in his new Associate Partner role – well deserved!
Courtney Weston, Learning and Development Manager - MS Amlin
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.
Peter Hannabus, Interim Talent & Development Manager - Aspen Insurance
Oakleaf are a great agency to work with, they have made the entire process fluid from start to finish. Alice Hamp has been incredible, from the initial contact of informing me of a job role, throughout the interview process, up until today. Alice put me at ease through the recruitment process, understanding my recruitment needs, and sourcing the right position for me. It doesn't at all feel like a business transaction, and more like a professional relationship. Thank you Alice!
Ritu Kapur, HR/Recruitment Advisor - Warner Bros
After signing up with a number of agencies, Oakleaf were the only one who I felt really invest in their candidates. Katie took the time to meet up so she understood me, and from this knew how I would fit into a business. Throughout the process, Katie kept me up to date and informed about suitable roles and the progress with them. Overall I am absolutely delighted having worked with Katie and would have no hesitation in recommending her as a recruiter to anyone looking for roles in the future.
