Who we are
People are the most important part of any business – and we are no different.
Aligra was founded in 2007 by Managing Director, Mark Neilson. With over 100 years of combined experience, matching the ideal candidates to the perfect roles, no other recruitment business has a better longevity or reach.
Our experienced team of Recruiters work together to identify the best candidates for each and every role. And we don’t stop until our client is 100% satisfied.
At Aligra Hospitality & Events, we benefit from an in-house team of recruitment professionals to deliver individually tailored candidate searches for you. Our in-house marketing and design capability means that we remain agile to the ever changing demands and trends within the hospitality and events sector. We’re in touch with industry developments and we source, locate and recruit the very best talent that the hospitality industry has to offer.
Leaving no stone unturned. We start afresh each time we look to staff an event to understand what our clients want from us. Our research is never limited to your direct competitors, we understand about skills transfer, however if you want the most experienced hospitality candidates, then we understand that too.
Track record and industry knowledge is essential to everything we do. We empower our teams to make decisions and encourage initiative to benefit everyone, whilst embracing the benefits of inclusion and diversity.
By understanding our clients’ business and our candidates’ requirements we can create a truly collaborative and transparent approach. To make this a reality we must have the best people in our business who motivate and deliver for all clients.
Passion and Tenacity
We are passionate about the hospitality and events industry and will do everything we can to promote it. We believe innovation is essential to our growth; we say what we think and know that being challenged is fundamental to delivering.
We give our teams the opportunity to work hard, develop themselves and the brand, and to share in the rewards, having fun whilst doing it. Teamwork is a is a word thrown around a lot, at Aligra it means coming together and working towards a common goal.
Respect and Integrity
Delivering on our promises is at the core of what we do; remaining commercially successful and ethically and environmentally aware. We will act with the utmost integrity and will always do what we believe is right.
We’re proud of the reputation that we have earned, and we have often earned that by placing candidate and client satisfaction above our own needs – that way we know when we are doing well, and we know when we have found ways of improving.
We take pride in our successful track record, and we enjoy passing our successes onto both our clients and our candidates. Through this approach, we can forge even better business links to strengthen our network, and improve our processes.
We believe in supporting the relationships we have established by investing effort and time in getting to know people on a personal level, rather than simply remaining a faceless organisation connected by emails. Recruitment is about people and we never forget that. It’s what underpins all we do and allows us to successfully cater to the needs of both our clients and our candidates, and in the best way possible.
