Founder and Director - Lisa Gills

Hello, my name is Lisa

I'm Founder and Director at Wild Squirrel Recruitment. I started the consultancy in September 2020 after ten years recruiting talented candidates for some of the UK’s leading marketing departments, creative agencies, and brand consultancies.

I've built the consultancy around my own core principles of integrity, respect and commitment. Whether that's helping a client develop their team or working with a candidate to realise their maximum potential, I believe in the value of focusing on the long-game.

“At Wild Squirrel we love to find extraordinary planners and strategists who are the best cultural fit – those who want to contribute to the long-term growth and success of a business.”

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



"As a Postgraduate student I was seeking a role where the employer was open to flexible working and had an inclusive culture. Lisa helped me find the ideal agency role which not only provided the flexibility I needed but was also a good fit culturally".

Celia Shepherd

"Lisa helped me land my dream job! The process was so smooth, so reassuring, and she was always available and keeping me updated at every stage of the process. Even the way she delivered the news that I was getting an offer just made it all more enjoyable".
