If candidate experience was ever an Olympic sport - you'd see Alison smiling on the podium with a medal. She has loads of recruitment experience and has worked out that her passion is making sure things run smoothly for our candidates. So we totally snapped her up because people like her are hard to find!
Ali describes herself as a people watcher, a movie buff and live gig-goer - so she is also our in-house gig-guide and movie reviewer - move over Kate Rodger.
Before Ali got the recruitment bug, she had great success in the travel industry. For a while after, she lost her travelling mojo but it's recently been renewed with a trip to Vietnam. Tokyo and Rome are high on the next-to-visit list. In the meantime, visits to favourite local spots like Hawke's Bay and the Wairarapa will suffice (it's no coincidence these are also well known grape growing regions).
She believes in keeping it simple, being exceptional in one area, paying attention to the details, thinking things through properly and taking educated risks. Ali gets a kick out of seeing enthusiastic people come together to achieve great things.
Ali's role at Consult sees her forming relationships with our best senior candidates to ensure that their experience with Consult is as magic as possible.
