Our sister company SBA Recruitment Ltd  is a joint partnership between Caroline Collings-Wood and Leilani Cleaver. They initially met over 20 years ago when they both worked for an independent recruitment agency.  Following a change of circumstances in November 2016, realised there was an opportunity for them to extend their combined recruitment and commercial knowledge and set up SBA Recruitment Ltd.
