Clive has been an excellent supervisor during my placement year and has not only guided me through technically challenging aspects of my project work, but he has also greatly supported my personal and professional development.

Process Engineer

Three things that come to mind when I think about Clive? A calm & collected presence, resilient and dedicated to the cause. Clive consistently takes on the challenge, adapts and comes out the other side evolved and full of learnings for himself and others. Since 2015 I have seen Clive’s character and capacity grow exponentially with every opportunity he has been given – from his opportunity with Save the Children to his career shift towards Process Engineering. Clive brings value to any team and has this uncanny knack of getting laughs in various situations. I wish him all the best in his future endeavours.

Principle Process Engineer

I worked for Ali in my first job as a graduate and I still use everything he taught me today. Ali has a kind, calm and supportive approach that grew my confidence and helped me believe in myself. He has infectious positive energy which always made me feel super inspired, and he brings his whole authentic self to everything he does.

Regulatory Specialist

Ali mentored me during my academic year of MSc. He was my mentor for a year and it was an amazing experience for me. He is empathetic and passionate and knows when to drive a mentee at their worst mental stage. He helped me not only academically but also prepared me to face interviews. He is such kind who will see hope inside yourself when you think it's a dead-end for you.

Clive has been a great mentor and colleague. With his experience, he has provided advice that has helped me to work on my professional performance and development. His passion and commitment to helping me succeed has really boosted my confidence and it has been a great pleasure to work with him.

Product Developer

I had the pleasure to speak to Ali during one of the most challenging times of my career, where my job situation was extremely unstable and saw no future ahead. He was (and still is) always available to support me and guide me in my career change, providing his advice about my professional decisions, with a thorough analysis of the positives on the long run.

Under his mentorship, I gained the confidence in my capabilities and came to terms about my professional change, which I learnt to accept as an opportunity and no longer a failure.

By sharing each others' views and hopes for the future, Ali helped me define the best goals for myself, reassuring me that my sacrifices would soon reward me. I will be forever grateful for his mentorship during my uncertain times.
