WHO WE ARE
Bespoke Advisory was established by Ali Sheikh, a former Senior Consultant at a FTSE 250 recruitment company.
After finishing an undergraduate degree in Accounting and Finance with a 2.1, Ali went on to qualify as a Chartered Certified Accountant.
Ali has also worked in the area of Tax at Ernst & Young. After gaining a wide array of experience within finance Ali decided in favour of a career in recruitment as he perceived a gap in the market to serve the taxation niche.
Ali started his recruitment career with a FTSE 250 company situated in the city. Within 12 months Ali had been promoted and was a top performer within the team. During this time, he augmented his 360 degree view of the market by making introductions on a permanent basis to numerous commercial organisations.
Ali works hard to ensure he delivers on building long standing relationships with both clients and candidates.
