Director – Executive Search
Financial & Professional Services
As a Director, Sarah is responsible for two of Oakleaf’s flagship contingent HR divisions. These teams cover entry level to senior HR hiring across the City, enabling her able to give a joined-up picture of market trends across a wide spectrum. She also spearheads internal buddy and career development programmes.
Sarah holds a first-class degree from in Economic & Political History and still enjoys reading widely about geopolitical events and global issues. After a period of travel, she started her recruitment career in a specialist public sector market before moving to HR search with Oakleaf. Interim, permanent, contingent, search, individual contributor, collaborator, manager, leader – it’s been quite the journey. Over a decade on, contributing to and helping develop the HR ecosystem of which she is part is still a key motivation.
Outside of work, Sarah has become something of a seasoned property renovator – currently on number three. She is also a keen cook and is delighted that her son has inherited her love of baking.
