Director

Simon Goddard

Having started in Construction recruitment in the late 80's as a Trainee Consultant, with Team Up Workforce Ltd, progressed onto being a Consultant, Branch Manager and now find myself passing my knowledge of this exiting sector onto others. Blimey, over 25 years within the same industry... scary.

Director

Joanne Goddard

Having started in the recruitment industry back in the mid 1990's, as a work placement within the accounts department, I loved the fast paced environment. Having worked through the ever changing legislation of the construction industry, now find myself joint owner of two specialist agencies. I must be bonkers... but love it.

Divisional Manager

Martin Thackrah

Having started my recruitment career in the late 90’s finding retail store managers for high street supermarkets. I quickly moved into the much faster paced world of industrial recruitment. Now another 15 years down the line I find myself at the heady heights of Divisional Manager sourcing painters and decorators the length and breadth of the country.

Contracts Manager

Deanna Baxter

I first cut my teeth in Recruitment in 1998, so gulp!!! I have nearly 20 years experience in the industry. I have worked in several industry sectors and built up a large Commercial awareness. Doing what we call a 360 degree role. But I have to say I found working in Construction Recruitment the most enjoyable! Particularly working for an owner managed Recruitment business that has its roots in Yorkshire is fantastic!!I might be speaking on behalf of the Alliance team but we absolutely love what we do!! We are straight John Bull!! Meaning we are straight talking, honest and genuine.

Business Development

Adam Collins

Originally from a veterinary background, I made a move into the trades industry in a sales capacity working with contract furniture and fit out contracts six years ago and never looked back. I’m fortunate to have been tutored by some amazing people who knew exactly what was missing from our area of expertise. I believe in a bit of good old-fashioned Yorkshire truth and honesty; you’ll never hear me using the usual confusing jargon. I Landed here at Alliance in early 2015 and have been bringing you our services through my word-smithery ever since!

Labour Resourcer or Trainee MD!!!

Ben Goddard

Joining the team in late 2015, after leaving school, I didn’t really know what type of job I wanted, but did know that I wanted to be successful in whatever I chose to do. Starting in the resourcing team, helping find the correct quality of Decorators to send to our clients, has given me some knowledge of the recruitment industry. I plan on taking over the company in a few months...ha,ha,ha

Contracts Manager

Craig Greenhough

Started as a trainee recruitment in 2009 and a number of years later I decided it was time for me to leave the world of industrial and 20p margins and join an organisation which had a work hard/play hard ethic and joined Alliance. I am currently working as a contracts manager which is completely different from my previous roles. Safe to say I am still here, creating relationships in true Yorkshire style!

Contracts Manager

Ryan Dyer

With over 12 years multi sector specialist recruitment experience covering permanent, contract and temporary assignments I found I preferred the faster paced environment of temporary recruitment. I have extensive experience of building long lasting working partnerships with both my clients and candidates and consider honesty the best policy in every situation. I am now utilising all my experience to help, source, retain and place the best time served decorators nationwide for my diverse client base for a variety of assignments across the decorating industry.

Working in Credit Control and Credit management for over 15 years I’ve definitely had my challenges along the way. With all my knowledge I am always happy to help to find a solution to any problem.

Payroll Administrator

Natalia Peres

Having being with the company for several years and with a background of administration and management of tradespeople, found myself feeling at home here very early on. Dealing with the labour can sometimes be a challenge, however we pride ourselves on getting everyone paid on time, correctly. I wanted a challenge and can safely say I’ve got one...
