​“The keyword that I would use to describe DNA is pro-active. Ali was fantastic at approaching the types of organisations that would make a perfect fit for my aspiration. He did so from the point of real understanding. He spent time understanding my experience and what I could bring to an organisation, and what I was looking for from my next appointment. Ali understands the business and the role, and I found him insightful as we discussed my next move. Fast forward ten years, and I still love it!”

Ashley Patterson

Ashley Patterson, Executive Planning Director

​“I think we gave Ali the near impossible brief. We wanted a senior strategist brand expert, with global operational expertise who understood retail, retailers and with previous tobacco experience. The attitude from Ali and the team was always positive and their constant pursuit for the right person gave us hope that we would indeed find the superhero we were searching for. We found our superhero thanks to Ali’s drive to get us what we needed. No stone was left un-turned and the manner in which this process was carried out was open and honest all the way. It was a pleasure to work with the team and look forward to doing so again in the future.”

David Fox, Chief Executive Officer (Middle East and North Africa)

​Ali and the team over at DNA Recruit really are there 'For The Journey'. The hiring process can be one of many twists and turns and it's crucial to have a team of great people in your corner. DNA remained relentlessly supportive and dedicated throughout a 6-week rigorous interview process which ended very happily ever after, with the landing of my next dream role. The team over there are detailed and comprehensive in the way they go about their work and don't miss a trick when it comes to giving advice and feedback throughout the process. A big thank you from me to Ali and the team for helping me secure an offer for the role I knew I wanted from when DNA first told me about it!​

I joined DNA a couple of months in and worked with Ali and the team to set up business processes and the early days of creating the brand. As a fresh graduate, everything was new to me and from invoicing to copywriting I learned it all. The main skills I developed at DNA were in self-discipline, to be curious and absolutely ruthlessly persistent. I also learned a heck of a lot about relationship building and that chatting endlessly on the phone could be a genuine career path! Ali's ability to piece together seemingly abstract pieces of information to create a new bond was and continues to be, an inspiration to me as my career has progressed. I'm grateful to DNA for teaching me really valuable working skills and look back on my years there very fondly. I would really recommend the opportunity to any other new graduates out there finding...
