About Alastair Ames
Alastair Ames has built up more than 32 years in business, working as a consultant and mentor for businesses of all shapes and sizes. His particular expertise lies in working alongside start-up companies, sole traders and SMEs within the automotive and recruitment sectors that are in the early stages of development. Alastair enjoys watching companies grow under his guidance and has worked with numerous companies to offer specialist assistance wherever it is required.
Alastair honed his early career in various sales and sales management roles within the mechanical handling and car leasing sector before setting up his own recruitment consultancy. The business grew quickly, establishing a reputation for high levels of integrity and quality of service. Brand building and brand protection always remained high priorities within a volatile and fast paced environment.
While the business specialised initially in search in the automotive sector, Alastair has worked in numerous other sectors through demand from clients and candidates moving to these other sectors. These include transport and logistics, the radio industry, exhibitions, IT and media. Alastair has always focused on discreet, non-biased consultancy and a holistic approach that has led to his advice also being sought on numerous projects outside pure recruitment and search. He provides consultancy services to board members and shareholders on a regular basis
