Alister studied for a Business degree at Sheffield Hallam University before embarking on an early career with The Guardian Media Group working on both the Guardian and Observer national newspaper titles.

After spending 5 highly successful years as part of the Recruitment Advertising team, he took a change of direction in 1999 and became an Executive recruiter.

Since that time, Alister has worked in partnership with and recruited for some of the most iconic and well-known brands across the globe in Banking, Industry and Commerce.

Being dedicated and specialising only in International Tax has allowed him over the years to build up an extensive network of International Tax contacts across the Globe within Direct Corporate Tax, Transfer Pricing & Indirect Tax (VAT) professionals.

Alister has been able to successfully facilitate numerous cross border searches and hiring projects to clients who in particular want to engage with a highly experienced recruiter who has the knowledge and accessibility to the best talent in the International Tax market.

In his downtime, Alister likes to spend time with his wife where they try to travel as much as possible and enjoy different cultures, food, wine and places of interest. He also whenever possible, tries to watch his beloved Manchester United which has been a passion of his for over 30 years.
