Alana's bio

Having spent over 5 years working for one of the largest corporate recruiters in the UK & Australia, I joined Search in 2018 to lead a team of specialist recruiters based in Glasgow. I head up our Scottish Professional Services offering and my teams cover recruitment across accountancy and finance, international finance, HR, sales and marketing.

My personal recruitment focus is mid to senior level appointments and search projects across our Sales and Marketing functions. With an established reputation, I have partnered with some of the world’s largest FMCG brands to identify and hire the best talent across Scotland. I pride myself on my ability to develop long-term and mutually beneficial relationships with my clients and candidates alike.

What people say about us

Taryn Clegg

“We’ve worked with Laura for many years now, across many different roles within the IDHL Group.

For me the key to a great recruiter is a good solid working relationship, where they understand your requirements, pressures and expectations. I can give Laura a brief and feel confident that she understands the skills require, but far more importantly the culture fit that we hold as a key measure in all our recruitment.”

Operational Director

​"I have used Search to fill senior and junior management positions throughout our group. In each recruitment campaign where I’ve worked with John, he has taken the time and made the effort to get to know my business and how the role fits in. The result of which has meant CV’s are relevant and candidates come well briefed and prepared.

So without any hesitation, I can say that I will continue to use Search in whatever location when needs arise."

​"John is a professional, incredibly knowledgeable about the industry and always generous with his time. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending him to anyone who's looking for the right hire, he's the best at what he does and always keeps clients and candidates in the loop."

​"Between initial contact and an offer being made, John was absolutely superb. He gave me additional information before interviews, messaged me just after to find out how they went and he most importantly kept me in the loop.

Sometimes you can just tell from how someone interacts with you what type of person they are and I can tell he is professional, honest and generous with his time. I'd recommend him to anyone."

I would definitely recommend Alex's services and use him again."

​"I worked with Alex when I was looking for a new role and he was fantastic at every stage.

Alex was keen to understand my experience but also what I was looking for in future roles, to ensure he put me forward for the positions. He went above and beyond to make the process as simple as possible, always sending through feedback, briefs and contracts straight after he'd received them."
