Oakleaf take a very human approach to managing you as a candidate or client. As a candidate you feel supported, informed and given honest feedback. From a client perspective this gives great comfort as to how prospective candidates will see your brand.
Consultants provide a thorough brief before interviews, covering off all aspects from approach the interviewer will likely take, to characters involved. They take time to listen to what the client is really looking for in a candidate and carefully match you, rather than sending a stream of CVs that just boost numbers. Oakleaf then sensitively manage the offer and negotiations and provide follow up to both candidates and clients. Outside of the recruitment process Oakleaf maintain close relationships and are always on hand for advice or updates on the market - they are a pleasure to work with.

May I take this opportunity to thank you and your team for a truly exceptional experience from Oakleaf during my job search. I've worked with a number of agencies and I can honestly say that the level of service provided by Oakleaf is exemplary. My lead consultant, Georgina Knowles, kept in touch with me regularly, I was always well briefed about potential opportunities and I felt well prepared for interviews. If Georgina was away, her colleagues would contact me so it felt like I had a whole team working with me and supporting me during the process. Many thanks to all of you.

This was the first time I had worked with Oakleaf and I am pleased to say it won’t be the last, the level of service was exceptional and Julia was a pleasure to work with.

Julia has a great understanding of the HR world and took the time to find out exactly what I was looking for and provided excellent support along the way. All the candidates she put forward were fully briefed and prepared. I would more than recommend Oakleaf and Julia in particular as an agency to work with.

Thank you so much for your continued support. You really stand out as a professional in your field. We had several HR agencies decline to work with us on this, as basically, they thought it would not pay off! Your attitude will mean we work with you again.

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

HR jobs testimonials

"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."
