Head of Change, Thames Water
Alium’s approach makes sound business sense: their people gave us the experience we needed to direct us through a major change initiative, with a strong return on investment.
Human Resources Director, Laing O’Rourke
Alium responded with great cycle time, from the point of understanding the brief to delivery of a number of equally suitable candidates. The continuous contact with me until a selection decision was made was both frequent and added value as we discussed the merits and demerits of each person. The whole process was professional and rapid.
Group HRD, Cape plc
Alium responded brilliantly to our request for help with a senior interim HRD for one of our major businesses putting forward candidates at very short notice who not only matched the specification perfectly but were also able to commence the assignment in the timescale required. Alium's support throughout the whole process was also very professional. I will not hesitate in using their services again.

Interim Head of Inward Investment, Business Growth & Trade, Development Agency
Throughout Alium handled the assignment in a highly professional, efficient, and sensitive manner.

Alium has a very good reputation in the top end of the interim market and in central government.

Alium made the process of sourcing the best candidate a very quick and efficient one. From identifying the person that we wanted, to placing them in the role took no more than two to three weeks (including the time taken to conduct the pre-employment checks). The whole process was remarkably straightforward, emails and phone calls are turned around quickly and any issues dealt with promptly.
