A long-standing partnership
Harriet Leach, HR and Recruitment Lead
Oxford Royale needed to fill an urgent position for an HR and Recruitment lead after receiving notice of the previous post holder’s intention to step down. As a result, they were searching for an exceptional candidate to take the reins. The successful applicant would be responsible for managing and hiring a dedicated and passionate team of academic and pastoral staff, whose high-quality calibre would deliver a 100 per cent satisfaction rate from students. With a reputation built on unrivalled standards of teaching, this was an incredibly important role which would be critical to the business.
The chosen candidate, Harriet Leach, impressed from the start. After beginning her career in a local Oxfordshire marketing agency as a standalone HR advisor, Harriet took time out to travel around Australia and New Zealand. While abroad, she accepted an HR Coordinator position on a fixed-term contract at an environmental consultancy.
Feedback from the client
"Allen Associates have a long-standing partnership with Oxford Royale that pre-dates my role with the company. The reason it works so well is that we share the same values. They pride themselves on providing the best experience possible, and although we’re operating in a different sector, we also want to be the best in the market."
