I have used Debbie and Jo from Vana to recruit almost my entire senior HR team! From HRBPs to a Reward Manager and most recently a HR Director role, Vana really understand the importance of culture fit. I would not hesitate to use Vana again or recommend them - They know the market really well and always put forward great candidates.
