Who we are
People are the most important part of any business – and we are no different.
Aligra is a dynamic and innovative recruitment agency dedicated to connecting talented individuals with the ideal job opportunities. We take pride in our agile and inventive approach, consistently seeking new and cutting-edge methods to deliver exceptional service to both our clients and candidates.
Our diverse teams constitute our greatest strength, as they bring together a variety of backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives to achieve outstanding results for our clients.
Initially, our vision was to become a leading recruitment agency, boasting a portfolio of top-tier candidates and clients. Now, Aligra takes pride in its team of recruitment professionals who share this vision. We continually strive for growth, recognising that people are the most crucial element in realising our ambitions.
Our senior management team has over 100 years of combined recruitment experience (in-house and agency) and offers a unique blend of operational, commercial, and strategic expertise. We only hire internal staff who exhibit the ideal combination of professionalism, passion, and dedication.
Our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion guarantees that candidates, regardless of their background or life experiences, will be given an opportunity to succeed.
While we serve various markets, we specialise in recruitment and talent management for the Transport, Logistics & Supply Chain, Automotive & Engineering, and Professional & Executive sectors.
“I’m proud to have built Aligra to the company it is today and very excited about realising our ambitions over the next 5-10 years.
Having previously been a Board Director for one of the largest recruitment businesses in the UK, I took these years of experience and formed Aligra.
I wanted to do things differently, more innovatively and with an emphasis on building strong relationships with our clients and candidates.
It hasn’t always been easy and we’ve had to learn from mistakes over the years, however we have built a team of like-minded professionals who are all pulling in the same direction. Our client relationships are strong and I see our values adopted in everything we do.”
Mark Neilson, Managing Director
Aligra have quickly understood the challenges of our unique culture and responded flexibly to our difficult operational circumstances. They have played a key role in the sensitive and timely management of our people and we have no hesitation in recommending them as a supplier of temporary and permanent resource. I also appreciate the compassionate and professional way they have handled interactions with people who are worried and concerned about the future.
