“Elaine has supported our businesses to recruit a number of senior leadership roles. I found she understood the business needs very quickly and worked with us to make the process of defining the type of candidate and personality profile effortless. Feedback from all candidates was extremely positive about their experience of dealing with her during the screening process; this makes the job of the interviewer much easier when you meet a well informed and motivated person. The quality of the people we considered was excellent and a real testimonial to Elaine. As the first person a candidate meets, Elaine projects a professional and energetic image that reflects positively on the organisation.
I also engaged Elaine as a Coach to work with members of our senior leadership team during a transitional period, and to support individual development. The feedback from my team has been excellent"

“Having had some negative experiences recruiting people who had the capability but were not a good fit with our company, we definitely didn’t want a faceless recruiter who would bombard us with unsuitable CVs. We were keen to find someone who wanted to get involved with our business and understand our culture and Elaine Rippon of Oakleigh Resourcing was recommended to us as being able to deliver the service that we wanted. She visited us, talked to the wider team and developed a thorough understanding of our business and our requirements. We have worked with Elaine on a number of recruitment assignments since, and can fully recommend her.”
Jeremy Gilboy, Managing Director Carrs Foods International
“I had a series of executive coaching sessions in preparation for my transition to CEO of the company. Elaine very quickly understood the needs of the business meaning that the sessions were able to focus on the most important areas. In addition, she was able to use her own experience to give advice and point me in the direction of valuable reading material in specific areas. I found the sessions extremely useful and they were invaluable as preparation for a smooth transition. I would strongly recommend Elaine as an executive coach.”
Dr Roger Fenske, CEO Edinburgh Instruments
“I sought Elaine’s expertise to conduct a series of coaching sessions with our Senior Executive team during a period of significant change within the business. Elaine’s application of coaching methods as well as having a robust understanding of business, enabled her to build a rapport quickly and identify and explore self-awareness and performance with each individual, preparing them for the change period. Elaine is a fantastic executive coach who is incredibly personable and I would not hesitate in engaging her services and expertise in the future. ”
