Ali joined McLaren Associates in August 2016. After spending 9 years working for a large energy company where she was responsible for recruitment in all areas of the organisation from general administration through to senior leadership roles, she decided to make a return to agency recruitment.

Ali commenced her career in recruitment back in the late 1990’s as an administrator at a small agency in Tauranga. After a brief break to embark on her OE, Ali re-joined the same agency in Wellington as a consultant in 2001. She has since worked in a number of roles both in-house in the public and private sector as well as agency recruitment.

Ali has a strong customer focus and is committed to ensuring she matches the right candidates with the right roles and organisations. She uses a collaborative approach to deliver results and a personalised service to each of our candidates and clients alike.

Outside of work, Ali has a busy life running a cherry orchard with her husband in the sunny Wairarapa, is Chairperson for the Board of Trustees at one of the local schools and has two young children to keep her on her toes!
