This week I’m joined by Tom Wood,

He started working in recruitment in the 90s/early 2000s, in the heat of boiler room culture and “3 hours on the phone” – since, he’s developed and grown an impressive recruitment career spanning 20+ years

It was great to sit down with him and talk about his tenure as a recruiter, and also touching on modern-day recruitment and how he approaches business.
