What clients and candidates say about me:    

"It's always been my dream to work offshore so I was absolutely delighted to work with Adam who made this dream come true. The entire process of moving to the BVI was made very easy for me, thanks to Adam's extensive knowledge, professional nature and genuine care for what I wanted. Thank you to Ambition for making my lifelong ambition a reality!" - Sophie Smith, Senior Insolvency Administrator at R&H Restructuring BVI

"I have known Adam professionally for well over three years now and I would highly recommend him as a recruiter, along with Ambition overall. He has placed me in my last two positions, my most current being in the British Virgin Islands.

When I first met with Adam, he took the time to go through the interview process and ask me mock questions to help me feel more prepared ahead of my interview in the City.

Coming from a mid-sized firm in the Midlands and interviewing with a leading firm in the City was quite daunting and Adam helped me to relax and gave me a confidence boost before the interview and suffice to say I was successful. Three years later he successfully placed me in my dream job in the BVI and I could not be happier. I know that should the time come to move on again I will always utilise Adam's services. His gentle and yet professional approach makes you feel like you aren't just another number or commission gain, but a real person who he wants to place in the right role." - Erin Breen, Assistant Manager at Baker Tilly (BVI) Limited
"I have been working with Adam since 2010. Adam is by far and away the best recruitment consultant I have worked with. Adam is professional, knowledgeable and above all, understands my aims. As I have developed my career within restructuring, Adam has adapted his searches and used his contacts within the industry to tailor and cater to my exact requirements. This is an extremely small industry and Adam is a market leader within it. He benefits from having: a competent and dedicated team around him; listens and thinks beyond the short-term; a can-do attitude; an amiable nature which has assisted in building relationships with clients over the course of a number of years." - Mark Gishen, Assistant Manager at Quantuma LLP

"Over the last few years, Adam and his team have consistently sourced me insolvency staff at varying levels. His approach is pro-active, honest and client focussed. I shall continue to use him and have recommended him to others." - Lawrence King, Insolvency Practitioner

“Adam is, without question, the most diligent and hardworking recruitment specialist I have ever worked with. His detailed knowledge of the Insolvency profession gives him great insight into the requirements of each individual candidate he represents and his ability to think creatively will often generate suggestions that the candidate themselves had never considered. Adam has established a large network of contacts within the insolvency industry and is always fully up to speed on what their requirements are. I cannot recommend Adam highly enough.” - Head of Investigations at McTear Williams & Wood

Outside of Work
