CEO, Nicola Grimshaw commented:  & lsquo;the results demonstrate again the ongoing confidence of the marketplace and the need of many businesses to increase the benchstrength of the HR teams.  We have observed a number of large transformation projects occurring across industries leading to a restructure and hence hiring different HR professionals to businesses.  As our business also continues to build specialist teams within particular areas,  such a  the Third Sector, Payroll and Global Mobility the number of opportunities seen by Oakleaf in these specialisms increased significantly, as clients are keen to work with experts in the marketplace to source difficult to fill roles.’
