My Background

I previously worked as an Auditor for one of the big four and worked with a large variety of clients, including law firms, drink conglomerates and an airport.

I moved into recruitment because I wanted a role in which I could communicate more with people and have the opportunity for creative thinking. I knew that helping people with something as important as progressing their career would give me real satisfaction, both personally and professionally.

Roles I Recruit

I specialise in recruiting Finance and Accountancy personnel across all levels. The Practice Finance & Accounting team at Ambition really embodies the phrase ‘inch wide, mile deep’ as it is a relatively niche sector, but we know every detail of it. My colleagues have a wealth of knowledge and contacts throughout their years of working in the sector.

What Candidates and Clients say about me

"Alex was extremely helpful throughout the recruitment process and he went the extra mile by helping me prepare for my interview with the company I am now working for. Alex was honest and sincere by regularly keeping me up to date with outcomes and next steps. He also provided me with sound advice for any queries I raised, illustrating his passion and flexibility for helping candidates achieve their career goals." 

"It has been an absolute pleasure working with Alexander. He was extremely knowledgeable and supportive in helping us recruit for a new role. We weren’t swamped with CVs and only forwarded those people who were likely to be a good fit. I will happily use ambition again and recommend them to others…"


Outside of Work

I enjoy football, travelling and reading. I’ve also written a 300-page fiction book.
