About Alison

I have over 25 years of extensive HR experience in adding strategic value and commercial insight and ensuring collaborative relationships across global businesses. I thrive when addressing complex HR issues and working with multi-functional teams, and am always considered a collaborative trusted adviser.

I joined JCRA in 2016. Previously I was HR Director at Sanlam, as well as an FCA registered CF1 Executive Board Director and member of the Exco and HR & Remuneration Committee.  In my spare time, I somehow manage to keep up with my three children who all share a love of the outdoors and can ski, sail and swim faster than me.
