Now, as part of the Certain Advantage team, she’s working with clients across the Scotland, delving into the opportunities and challenges within their finance teams and finding game-changing candidates who can add true commercial value to their teams.

Once upon a time, Ashlene was a professional dancer—touring the world as a professional dancer. She fondly remembers performances in her favourite cities, Vancouver and Buenos Aires. These days, Ashlene focuses more on time with her family and friends but relishes dancing socially with no competition pressure.

Ashlene’s strength lies in her ability to deeply understand her candidates, celebrating their career progression and adding value for clients by delving deep into the nuances of their businesses. This unique skill ensures that she can provide the best possible match for both parties, instilling confidence in her clients and candidates.

For Ashlene, the validation of repeat business stands as a testament to her success and reflects her credibility in the market. Her attention to detail is impeccable, and her ‘blue’ insights personality trait ensures she matches the candidate market with precision and thoughtful decision-making.
