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, and has two young children to keep her on her toes!
