I recently registered with Wood Recruitment and had an interview with Lisa Nadan. She was friendly, provided constructive feedback, and showed a genuine interest in understanding my career goals during the short time we had. Lisa's professional and well-informed HR approach made the interview experience positive and distinctive.
