Curating the right talent...

The Ashmolean Museum

The Ashmolean Museum is the University of Oxford’s museum of Art and Archaeology. The Ashmolean’s historic collections are an integral part of the university’s intellectual heritage, having played an important part in research and teaching for over 300 years.

The client’s perspective
Laureen McHaffie, Head of HR, Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology

“As a former Candidate and now a Client, I feel as if I have a 360 degree view of the Allen Associates’ experience. Whether you meet them as a job seeker or an employer, you are made to feel like they really care about you and are committed to building a lifelong relationship with you. They set the standard for what you would look for in a recruitment agency and I cannot recommend them highly enough.”

The brief:
We didn’t have time to develop a job description so we had to trust Allen Associates to find us someone with the right level of experience who would fit in well here and fulfil the requirements of our latest temporary role. Fortunately, Allen Associates has placed many permanent and temporary workers at the Ashmolean Museum, including one of our longest serving temps, Sonia Power, who has been a valued member of our HR team for the past six years. Allen Associates has an excellent understanding of what we are looking for and, in the case of HR, a solid grasp of the nature of the work that we do.
