Lisa Canning

Principal Consultant

Hunting down retail talent since 1999; people will generally hear Lisa laughing before they see her. She knows the sector like the back of her hand, and she has a habit of forming life-long connections with her clients and candidates. Lisa chose to join People Equity in 2014 after she met Gabby out in ‘recruiter land’ and she’s never looked back. She knew that Gabby’s trusting, progressive leadership style would enable her to provide the depth of service to her clients and candidates that they deserve to achieve optimal results. Whether her clients are after retail recruitment in senior operations, merchandise/buying, marketing or digital/e-commerce she’s connecting candidates with the most ideal retail roles. Her vice: Well, there are probably too many to mention. 

"I've been lucky enough to have dealt with Lisa since the year 2000. What a wonderful contact to have had for now 19 years! Lisa has recruited a wide variety of roles for me over the years and for a wide variety of organisations. It is not common to work continually with one recruiter unless they really are a 'stand out'. Lisa is absolutely committed to ensuring you get the right person for the position and culture of the business and will not send just anyone to an interview to 'tick a box'. She is considered, takes time to really understand a business and its culture and makes recommendations of value. Her communication is excellent, she is professional and personable all at the same time and has excellent industry knowledge and understanding. Working with Lisa is not only effective, but easy at the same time. I highly recommend Lisa and am grateful for all of the support she has given me over the last 19 years."
