“I’m delighted to have joined the team at Vargo and to continue to support the company as it grows.

“There’s a lot in the pipeline for Vargo, and with Brexit and the widely reported skills shortage set to hit several sectors in the coming years, businesses will need something more than traditional recruitment methods if they want to differentiate from their competitors and attract the brightest talent.
