Ali Hughes

Consultant

​Ali Hughes is a Consultant at Rutherford, the specialists in legal and compliance recruitment. After getting her degree in English at the Rhodes College in Memphis (Tennessee), she started her career in recruitment, quickly specialising in the financial services industry. She has sourced candidates within audit & accounting, consumer payments, banking and fintech. She has now joined Rutherford as Consultant, where she will be mainly covering alternative investments for US business accounts.

What is the most unexpected thing you ever did?

Yoga on a horse. Backstory: I stayed at a ranch whilst on holiday in Montecorto, Spain where the guests were encouraged to spiritually connect with the animals on the farm. A bit campy for my taste but it was rather… peaceful?

What brought you to Rutherford?

Location, location, location! I have been searching for work in London for a couple years now. Rutherford struck me as a strong fit for many reasons, including the company culture, the growth trajectory, and, perhaps most importantly, the business development structure of my role.

What motivates you at work and in life?

I am motivated by creativity, determination, open-mindedness, and a desire to learn - all which have helped me develop valuable skills in life and work thus far.

Why do you have an interest for the financial services industry?

At its most basic definition, financial services is a competitive sector with the most opportunities. I am drawn to the industry because of its ongoing history for high job demand with compliance being one of the focal points.
