Value-driven events.. There is no substitution

With a fast-growing market in the Midlands, North & Scotland, it is sometimes difficult to keep up with the trends.  As specialist in Human Resources, Oakleaf Partnership strive to take the time to understand needs of our HR Network.  Our Birmingham Office supports our candidates and clients across the Midland, North & Scotland in various ways, keeping ahead of the curve and helping our network stay in the know.

Though social media platforms enable us a glimpse into our industries insights, a quick click of a button doesn’t compare to the experience and knowledge gained from face to face networking and conversation.  Oakleaf Birmingham host monthly events that are tailored to specific market trends and changes, allowing us to learn from specialists and meet like-minded individuals.

We have held many successful events including an annual gathering for In-House Recruiters and our quarterly HR Director’s & Senior Leader’s Dinner.  Each of these are targeted to a certain group and focus on an area of discussion for the attendees.  This past year, popular topics included Millennials in the Workplace, Diversity & Inclusion, GDPR, The Apprenticeship Levy, HR in 2018 and Wellbeing.

The most recent addition to our events calendar is the OP Academy. The OP Academy was set up in 2015 to support rising HR talent progress as they set out on their career. The idea is to bring together talented HR professionals with senior HR leaders in a social setting, allowing them to impart their wisdom and career advice. It's a unique and invaluable opportunity to ask questions and expand their personal network of like-minded, ambitious HR professionals and share knowledge, learning and best practice across industry. Our aim is to nurture and support talent in the HR community, with each session having a key development theme led by a senior HR professional who will talk through their career journey and how they overcame obstacles.

We are always looking to connect with HR Professionals and talk about how we can support you.  Whether it is your next career, recruitment for your team or assisting you in strengthening your professional network, we are happy to help.
