The OP Academy
Welcome to the Oakleaf Academy!
‘Building a strong community to aid rising HR talent to achieve their ambitious career goals.’
Are you currently in the early stages of your career? Looking to learn from other like-minded HR professionals? Build out your HR network? Keen to hear from Senior HR Professionals on how they grew within their career? Need more specialist help/advice in certain areas of HR? The list goes on…
If so, the Oakleaf Academy is here for you!
The Oakleaf 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 for our candidates 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.
