Who better to tell you what we’re like than our very own clients? Here’s what some of them have to say about their experiences with Oakleaf.

Testimonials for

I have had a great experience with Oakleaf. Initially I met up with John O’Brien and Linda Giacomantonio who were very thorough in their assessment of my skills and very helpful in pointing me in the right direction for my next professional move. I was then contacted by Grant Ward who again matched me with the perfect role for what I was looking for. I will be starting in my new job soon and would definitely recommend Oakleaf to any colleague needing to make their next move. Thank you Oakleaf!

Pilar Rowlands, EMEA Payroll Specialist - Dow Jones

Testimonials for

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.

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!

Both Jade and Dom have been really great over the last few weeks, from the point to when I first spoke to them through to when I had to eventually choose between the two roles. I'm left with nothing but positive impressions from Oakleaf (who have now provided me with three job offers in two years).

Tim Le Maire, BP - HRIS Deployment Lead

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

Testimonials for

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.

I cannot thank Oakleaf enough for their support on this opportunity - they were thorough, responsive and provided honest feedback and great guidance throughout.

Dione Dash, Group Pensions & Benefits Manager - DS Smith

Testimonials for

Jamie recently led the search for a Group Head of Reward for us - this was my first senior appointment in my new role with Domestic & General. Jamie took time to understand the company, my brief and what the role really required in terms of culture and fit. Every candidate that I was presented with had the ability to do the role and in a tight Reward market this really impressed me. I ultimately hired a fantastic Reward professional and he is already making excellent progress. I felt Jamie took time to make sure he got me the right candidate slate, but that he also took care of the candidate experience, which was really important to me. I would recommend Jamie without hesitation and I am delighted with what he has achieved for Domestic & General.

Nick Ulycz - Group HR Director, Domestic & General

Testimonials for

Oakleaf are a friendly group of professionals who take a personal interest in helping you to find the right work to match your skills and experience. I have found them to be very proactive when contacting me about potential roles, which has been really helpful as a HR professional just starting out looking for my first contract role. In addition to this I have received support with CV writing, which has been invaluable to enable me to correctly brand myself. I fully recommend Oakleaf as a recruitment agency.

Jade provided valuable support to us through our recruitment process - she sent high quality CVs and was proactive and efficient in her dealings with Liberty Global Group. Jade made me feel confident in her ability to close the candidates and to keep them engaged throughout the process, and filled the roles given to her with exceptional individuals.
