Alison Fenton

Commercial Director

Ali is more than a recruiter; she’s an extraordinary solutions provider, getting to know the guts, cogs and mechanisms of how her clients and candidates work, and understanding exactly what kind of people will fit each other.   She’s a counsellor, an influencer, and a motivator to all.

 

Ali heads the Amour Portsmouth office and it’s interesting to learn about her background because it gives you an insight into where she gets her passion for delivering an honest, first class experience to clients and candidates alike.

 

She spent the first 12 years of her working life in the travel industry, visiting many amazing places and experiencing life on the front line of consumer care. She became a professional recruiter in 1996, and after 15 years as a senior consultant specialising in commercial permanent roles, she set up and ran her own recruitment business for six years.

 

“I have experienced the pain and frustrations that my candidates and my clients have felt, and it drives me to make life as much of a joy as possible for them.”

 

Ali says joining Amour in 2017 was the best business decision she has ever made and she loves leading and encouraging her superb team of consultants as much as she loves recruiting for her clients.

 

Her Amours outside work are travelling with her partner and her son, and Rock Choir, a multi-layered singing experience which includes singing with notable stars at some impressive venues, and more opportunity to lead others as a Prefect for Portsmouth & Fareham choir. Ali is also a volunteer committee member, team captain and fundraiser for Relay for Life, a charity which helps communities to beat cancer sooner.
