Amanda Underwood - Group HR Director, WSH Ltd
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.

Oakleaf are true experts in the HR market. They take a huge amount of time to understand their clients' needs, culture and their environment, ensuring that they always present relevant candidates that are a true fit for the roles they are working on. Few agencies consider all angles, and this sets Oakleaf apart from their competitors.
Hanna Neuborn - Head of Recruitment, Merkle
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.

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."
