Alexandra Guy

Divisional Manager - Animal Health & Nutrition/ Life Sciences

Having started in the recruitment industry 16 years ago, I identified very quickly my thirst for knowledge and was captured by the animal health and nutrition industry. I specialise in the recruitment of management and executive level candidates on an international basis, within the Poultry, Swine, Ruminant, Equine, Aquaculture, and Pet markets.

I love working in the nutrition/additives market, it’s consistently evolving, and this is where I specialise due to anti-microbial resistance and the drive for additives reducing antibiotics. I love the science. I love working with the requirements of the sector identifying and matching exceptional candidates with the right positions.

With my experience from 5m publishing (who are responsible for ThePoultrySite.com, ThePigSite.com plus other species sectors) combined with my extensive recruitment background, let me offer you my specialist knowledge and make a difference to your recruitment.

My consultative approach focuses on the candidate's next move which develops their career. I am the gateway to many confidential roles. Our shared prosperity for all is vitality which aids longevity. Aligning the values and ambitions of both parties to make a difference.

By investing the time with me and completing the discovery needs analysis, it enables the EI to align with the values of the person that will match with the business, this element is often overlooked. In fully understanding your business I am committed to delivering the highest quality recruitment service to you. I have networks in most countries and use these for referrals as well as approaching candidates that I have connected with over the years. I excel at headhunting and knowing which companies compete with others is valuable.

I am an ambassador for my clients and candidates. Getting to fully understanding them both; my passion and enthusiasm enables me to attract and introduce top talent.

Recruiting globally, I have successfully hired all over the world including Austria, Brazil, Croatia, Denmark, Dubai, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Mexico, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Russia, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Ukraine, Vietnam and of course the UK.

By blending a variety of candidate discovery identification and attraction activities, I recruit outstanding individuals that fit every aspect of my clients’ person and job specifications. In addition, they fit each business from a cultural perspective – a crucial area that ensures longevity and job satisfaction.

I have access to the very best talent on the market. Let me introduce you.
