"I cannot say enough nice things about Lisa at Wild Squirrel Recruitment. She provided a level of service I've rarely come across in the industry, it felt as if she was available at my beckoning call at any time of the day to provide assistance, new opportunities and advice as we navigated the market for the next chapter in my career."
