Here’s what people have to say

“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.”

Allan Dickenson



“Lisa is proactive and engaging and has a good sense of the level and type of skills you are looking for in a role. I saw a shortlist of great candidates for a role, all of whom were on brief, and Lisa really helped to shortcut the process to finding the right candidate to join us”.

Head of Engagement Strategy


“Despite the incredibly challenging hiring environment, Lisa has worked diligently and tirelessly to find us the right candidate. With a calm and calculated approach Lisa’s bespoke service meant we saw less but much higher quality candidates, taking up less time but yielding much better results”.
