We used Ali to help us with a difficult period of change after a loss of significant funding. Ali took time to really understand us and what our recruitment needs were at that time. She helped us plan the process, provided great support and advice and devised all our required documents. We felt we benefited from Ali’s many years of experience, bringing innovation and a fresh approach. Ali’s calm, friendly and professional approach was very welcome.

"We engaged Ali to assist us in auditing and making improvements to our recruitment process, which included introducing psychometric testing. We were all extremely impressed with Ali’s comprehensive knowledge in all things recruitment, she is a delight to work with and delivered on everything she promised. If you need help with your recruitment, Ali will have the answer."
Russ McKenzie, Director, nTrust Systems Ltd, Redhill, Surrey
"Ali's advice on which assessments to use to profile a new CEO for a Trust of 5 schools was perfect. The role was new, we had no measurements and needed profiling that would reassure us on the candidate's ability to learn, assess, judge and make good decisions. Ali was super flexible given our time constraints, very professional and thorough. The final candidate and the interview panel felt well briefed and no stone left unturned as to how the results could be interpreted.
Ali's follow up has been excellent. I highly recommend Ali for any recruitment profiling, leadership development or team building where analysis of skills, styles and personalities are required."
Jo MacDonald, Global Executive Search Specialist - Europe, APAC, US

"Ali brings enthusiasm and years of valuable recruitment experience as well as practical interviewing and assessing skills. She is reliable, knows the value of a high quality, robust recruitment process and understands how to identify the high calibre of candidates that our business requires."
Shabrina Khan, Student Recruitment Manager, EY
"Due to urgent client needs, we needed to quickly recruit a large number of experienced people into our data analytics team. Our small pool of experienced and trained interviewers lacked the time to interview the number of candidates required. Ali, who had been recommended to me by a colleague, ran a number of small group training sessions. These included a practice interview for all attendees to ensure they would make competent interviewers. As a result my team of 20 new recruiters conducted professional, competency based interviews and we able to recruit to the level and at the speed required to meet our growing business area."
Julie-Anne Moors, Senior Manager, Forensic Technology, KPMG, UK
"With the use of two psychometric tests, Ali provided some great insights into how well suited the applicants were to the role and also how they might fit into our growing team. I will definitely use Ali's services again when hiring in future."
Alastair Badman, Go Workhorse, Fetcham, Surrey
"Ali has done a number of long-term graduate recruitment projects for my clients over the last few years, including telephone interviewing, face-to-face interviewing and assessing at final round. Ali is always professional, knowledgeable, reliable and a great person to have on the team."
