It was a pleasure to work with Jo White at VANA HR Resourcing in looking for a new career opportunity. Jo was keen to ensure the fit between myself and the employing company was considered as paramount, and also took the time to understand what my main drivers were to align the right opportunities. Communication from Jo was great from a candidate point of view which made the process seem fluid and straightforward. I would recommend VANA HR Resourcing strongly to anyone looking for their next career challenge or for organisations seeking the best in HR talent.
