  • ​My experience of working with Seb was exceptional. He guided me throughout the recruitment process, provided excellent advice and help at all levels. Seb's approach is to understand personality and skills of a candidate to quickly identify which current vacancies would suit that person most. He went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and has a approachable attitude. He helped me get a job within 2 weeks of my first meeting with him.

  • Chris is a charismatic, supportive and gifted Consultant who I had the pleasure of working with over a three month period. What really impressed me the most was how much time Chris takes to understand the background, skills, personality, wants and goals of his clients before even discussing potential opportunities. Due to this, I was able to speak solely to companies that share the same goals and values as myself which ultimately resulted in finding the perfect next step in my career very quickly once the interview process began. The overall process was friendly, clear and concise while support extended above and beyond what I expected. I therefore highly recommend Chris!

  • ​I never felt like ‘just another CV’ when working with Claudine. When I was quite unsure about looking for a new role, she took so much time to talk me through my options and the market in general, without ever making me feel pressured. Claudine really knows the industry - her advice was always informed and savvy, but also thoughtful and diplomatic. I wouldn’t hesitate to contact Claudine again if I was considering a new role and would gladly recommend her to anyone.

  • ​Sumaya is an outstanding recruiter who consistently goes the extra mile. She is friendly, approachable, helpful and understanding, as well as demonstrating professionalism and passion in her work. I appreciate her quick response, efficiency and prompt follow-up to my requests. I recently worked with Sumaya on the recruitment for a newly established position in an area we have not previously recruited in so what I valued the most is her in-depth understanding of the market and the various categories of candidates that she presented to us and she was able to carefully guide us through the this and offered advice and guidance throughout. She is extremely effective at her job and it’s a pleasure to recommend her as an accomplished recruiting professional.

  • ​We’ve only recently started working with Ambition and the experience to date is very positive. Claire, one of their Principal consultants, managed the recruitment for our Tax Manager vacancy really efficiently and found us a great new addition to our team. We have found them both professional and personable.

    Katie Cobbold, Head of HR at Wilson Wright LLP

  • ​Claudine prides herself on knowing her market inside-out and using this knowledge to provide us with suitable candidates who are the right fit for us. She is very efficient and a pleasure to work with. We have placed many candidates through her and I would highly recommend her work.
