"Alison’s desire to understand our business and our culture is key to our successful working relationship. This approach delivered candidates of high quality and cultural fit over consecutive assignments. Alison is professional throughout the process, from the initial brief, the search process, the communication with both the client and the candidate - I look forward to working with Alison again in the future."

Andrew Maxwell, Managing Director & CEO, Global Kinetics Corporation.


"As an organisation we have worked with Brinkmoore over the past few years to identify key talent to support our ongoing growth. The level of service and commitment given to each assignment has been truly outstanding. Alison, as the Company proprietor takes the time to really understand both the organisation and the role(s) before starting to identify potential candidates.  Whilst many recruitment organisations say they will work in partnership, Brinkmoore really do and it's this partnership approach that continues to deliver both a great service and high calibre candidates to Chiesi."

Heather McColl MCIPD, UK HR & Support Services Director, Chiesi.


"We asked Alison to find us not one, but two different needles in a haystack – senior European personnel for both Medical and Marketing Director roles in a relatively niche area. We also asked for the recruitment to be achieved within what even we thought were aggressive timelines. Not only did we appoint ultimately excellent candidates to both positions, but we had a great shortlist to interview and select from – and the aggressive timeline was even shortened compared with what we had initially anticipated! Alison has a thoroughly professional and goal oriented approach, whilst always working with the best interests of both client and candidate in mind. I thoroughly recommend her and will definitely be using her skills again in the future"

Dr John Hall, Vice President, Global Medical Affairs, Global Commercial Solutions, Quintiles.


"Alison played an instrumental role in my search for a high profile, unconventional, senior position in the pharmaceutical industry. Alison is well-connected, and very adept at presenting opportunities tailored to a candidate's needs. Crucially, Alison is able to expedite processes where necessary. In my case, Alison found me a senior role in a relatively short timescale, expedited interviews, job offer and contract negotiation. Equally important is Alison's negotiating skills and hands-on approach, in presenting alternatives and achieving results that are acceptable to both my new employer and myself. I commend Alison as an outstanding recruiter."

Dr Eric Teo, VP, EU Medical Director, Alimera Sciences.


"My experience as a candidate when dealing with Alison was an extremely professional one. I found that Alison took time to listen, leverage her client culture to my own where possible. A clear ability and strength in matching people to the right organization to ensure value is created for not only her client, but the candidate Alison advocates too, which is quite refreshing in today's business environment. I would always take Alison's advice on career growth opportunities as she is a fabulous sounding board too!"

Syed Rashid, Director of Health Economics & Reimbursement, EMEA, LifeCell.




"From understanding the brief in detail, through focussed and timely sourcing of 'on-spec' candidates, with thorough interview preparation and follow up and outstanding candidate management throughout the process, Alison is one of the best recruiters I have worked with. Combined with a real passion for on-time performance, these attributes ensure she delivers with real expertise as well as offering tremendous value for money recruitment.”

Simon Cartmell, Executive Chairman, OSspray.


“Alison is an exceptional recruiter - I have never met anyone who changed my perspective so completely through providing pertinent and valuable information, insight, and personal input leading me to go for a senior role that I didn't think I was interested in! Alison identified that my skills, experience and approach were a great fit for the organisation she was recruiting for and went more than the extra mile to ensure that I was successful. I would happily use Alison again as either a client or if I was looking for future roles. She is a bright, capable, warm and engaging women and I am delighted to recommend her."

Anne-Marie Swift, VP, EU Marketing Director at Alimera Sciences.


"Alison's role in helping to assemble the team at Orthomimetics was one of the most important factors in the company's success. In all instances her approach was thorough and professional, yet also flexible and highly creative. And perhaps most importantly, Alison consistently placed top priority on understanding and addressing directly the specific needs of our company and its existing team. We consider ourselves very fortunate to have benefitted from Alison's services and look forward to working with her again.”

Dr Andrew Lynn, CEO Orthomimetics.


"It was a pleasure to work with Alison. She is a consummate professional with in depth knowledge of the sector and a strong client service ethic. She builds excellent relationships with both clients and candidates and as a result, has an enviable record of successfully delivering against even the most demanding requirements.”

James Thompson, Lead Talent Acquisition Partner, AstraZeneca.


"As a candidate, my experience overall has been very positive. During the first contact and following communications, Alison has listened, understood and recognised my personal situation and needs, as well as being very effective in describing the opportunity. She has been very open and honest with me about the role and its prospects. I always felt the sincerity and warmth in our communications. This approach has built the trust between us, which helped with the process and I was very happy to have known her as a person and grateful for the opportunity as I felt that it was the right one for me at the right time. I have no hesitation in recommending her as I found her exceptionally supportive and reassuring.”

Dr Ozlem Ataman, Clinical Lead, Radiation Oncology Combinations (ROCKIT) & Research Physician in Oncology, AstraZeneca.
