"I recently recruited a part-time HR & Recruitment Coordinator through Oakleaf and I wanted to reach out and share my experience of working with Jane and Harriet, as it has been so positive.
I'm sure other clients may have initial concerns about a desk/candidate pool being managed part time and by 2 different people and I could understand these concerns. At first I shared these too - e.g. will there be a delay in communication while I wait for them to be in, what would the candidate experience be and will that reflect on T2, will it take longer to hire the position, will I have to repeat the same thing to each person?
"I have to say that those concerns were completely removed after a very short time. I found Jane and Harriet's communication both between each other and to me fantastic; they always came back to me and it was them proactively coming to me to move things forward in the process! The feedback I have had from Sarah, who I hired, was that it was the best candidate experience she has ever had. They both very quickly grasped exactly what I was looking for, the brand, culture etc and I'm very pleased to say delivered a fantastic candidate. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact them again when I have a part time need and will certainly be sharing my experiences with my peers as I’m unaware of any other agency offering this unique and very valued service."

"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."

"Wanted to thank Oakleaf for the amazingly quick turnaround in securing me my first permanent role, and also for being so helpful throughout the whole process. It's really given me a huge amount of peace of mind and I can't wait to start what is an ideal next step for me."

"It was truly a pleasure meeting Oakleaf and the team last week! Everyone was super helpful, yet honest with feedback and gauging expectations - which I really value in today's business world. I feel very lucky to be in such good hands, and I do hope to have success in my job search."
