Meet the team


Alison Gill CMIOSH, MRCSA, MInstD
Managing Director
T: +64 9 424 8367

Alison Gill co-founded edenfx HSE in 2007 to assist in the long term sustainability of workplace health and safety through the use of specific recruitment services for Health, Safety, Environmental and Quality professionals.

Alison relocated to New Zealand in 2007 after 20 years working in the UK specialising in the delivery of HSE and HR Services. A belief and dedication to ongoing professional and personal development sees Alison as a Chartered Member of IOSH in the UK, a Certified Member of NZISM, a Registered Safety Professional in Australasia and a MinstD.

Alison has a particular interest in Corporate Social Responsibility whereby organisations consider the interests of society by taking responsibility for the impact of their activities on customers, suppliers, employees, shareholders, communities and other stakeholders, as well as the environment. The edenfx services are delivered through this concept.

Alison believes that operational excellence is the minimum standard for the team rather than a goal so you will be in safe hands at edenfx.

Sadly, there is no chance of a coffee meeting with our boss – but if it’s a ‘cuppa tea’ on offer, Alison will be there in a flash. We don’t call her the queen of Yorkshire tea for nothing – tea so orange and strong you can stand your spoon up in it!
