My Background

I began my journey into recruitment in March 2014, working on a professional services marketing & business development desk primarily focusing on the legal sector but also covering the real estate & accountancy sectors.

I joined Ambition in September 2016 to further my career development in a driven and friendly environment to enable me to fully utilise my passion for the legal & marketing industry.

In October 2018 I was promoted to Managing Consultant for the legal BD and Marketing recruitment team.

Roles I Recruit

I specialise in recruiting roles from Assistant to Management level across the business development, marketing and communications spectrum. I work with a wide variety of clients from the magic circle through to smaller boutique firms.


Recent Projects

I’m currently working on a number of exciting projects managing the transition of BD Executives to Senior Exec level, guiding ambitious BD professionals to the next step in their career.


What clients and candidates say about me

"Ben is very intuitive and great at matching the right candidate with the right role. There's no time wasting when you're working with Ben - he understands the requirements of both the recruiter and the candidate and is adept at finding a suitable match. He's very personable and always available. Always a pleasure to work with." – Sarah Zokay-West – Business Development Manager at Travers Smith

"Ben is very knowledgeable on the legal BD market. He was able to offer insight into the working nuances of different firms and therefore able to skillfully advise about where would be a good fit for me. Ben is responsive, a pleasure to work with and tells it how it is, which was great when I was in a situation where other recruiters were just trying to get me in the door." - Aneesah Atallah - Global Insurance Law Connect Network Manager 

“Ben is very professional and dedicated and clearly knows his industry. As a candidate, I appreciated his openness, honesty, and the desire to put my needs first. Ben is excellent at being in touch and keeping you updated on the upcoming opportunities. I have no reservations recommending Ben to both candidates and employers” – Anya Wilson Fish – BDM Charles Russell Speechlys

“We don't recruit very often for our marketing team but when we do we go to Ben. He is very professional and ensures that he presents to us only the best candidates as he really understands what we are looking for. He keeps you informed at every stage of recruitment and stays in touch afterwards both with us and with the newly appointed employee to ensure it's all going well. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend him” – Victoria Llloyd-Jones – Head of Marketing LLP

“As a recent candidate, Ben worked hard to find me a role that fitted my requirements. He really listened to me and managed my expectations throughout the process. He obviously knows his markets and his clients very well. He is very professional and good at building relationships. I would recommend him to anyone looking for work in the professional services industry” – Katy Robins – BD Manager – Clyde & Co

“I have known Ben in a professional capacity for about two years as he placed me in my current role. I found him to be extremely knowledgeable about the professional services sector and friendly in the way I was dealt with. From the very start of our relationship Ben took time to learn more about my skills and personality and match them to my current job. He kept me informed about every step in the application process so I knew exactly where I was at every stage. I would highly recommend Ben for his recruitment expertise, professional attitude and high level of integrity” – Wayne Hamilton – BDE Kingston Smith

Outside of Work

I enjoy socialising with friends in my spare time. I also have a keen interest in sport and support my hometown football team Ipswich Town.
