My Background
I have worked in a variety of industries from the media to financial services. I graduated from university where I studied Sociology so I think this gives me a unique approach to my role, having worked my way from Associate Consultant to Senior Consultant since joining in 2016.

Roles I Recruit
I recruit up to Senior Executive level of Business Development & Marketing professionals on a permanent basis working with a range of clients across the top 200 law firms. 

What clients and candidates say about me

"Charlotte Gorrie is an outstanding recruiter! She is knowledgeable, professional and very caring. It is not everyday you meet a recruiter who actually genuinely cares about your career as I feel most just do it for the money. She was extremely proactive in sending over roles, and always responds in a timely manner. Throughout the interview process, she really took time out to see how I was doing and if I was thoroughly prepared. And even after offer she took an interest in how I was feeling about it all and if I was ok handing in my notice etc. Most recruiters just want to get you the job and that's it - but she always showed that one extra mile type passion in her role. A pleasure to work with!"

"Charlotte is one of the best recruiters I've worked with. She is friendly, came up with plenty of great BD roles to apply for and kept me very well informed throughout the interview process. What impressed me the most about her was how carefully she listened when I described what I enjoyed most in my role, and from this, she was able to find me a role at a firm with practice areas that I am truly passionate about. Thanks again for your help Charlotte!" - Eleanor Marchant, Business Development Assistant at Sullivan & Cromwell LLP

"At Ambition I received a straightforward, good quality service. I dealt with Charlotte Gorrie on the temporary placements desk. Charlotte was thoughtful, accommodating and patient. She found me good work quickly and with the minimum of fuss. What more could you ask of an agent?"

"Charlotte Gorrie from Ambition provided a brilliant service from start to finish for which I will always be grateful. From meeting Charlotte and the team at the Ambition London office, I knew I was in safe hands and was sent several job specs in the days that followed, asking if I would like to apply for them. After finding me a brilliant job spec, Charlotte committed a lot of time to preparing me for the two interview stages and rang me regularly to see how I was doing and if I had any questions. In the end, Charlotte and Ambition found me a fantastic job in only a number of weeks, and they still check in with me now to make sure everything is going well. Overall I am extremely grateful to Charlotte and the team, without their help I would not have managed to get such a great job in such a quick time. Nothing seemed too much to ask of them, and they always offered complete support every step of the way."

"Right from start to finish, Charlotte was exemplary in terms of her professionalism and her friendliness. I never once felt like I had to chase her for information or feedback and always felt reassured and kept in the loop by her. The early suggestion of a meeting at Ambition's offices at 8am sharp set an immediately good precedent for the recruitment process and this inspired confidence that she was the right recruiter for me and we would ultimately be able to find the ideal role in the end. Importantly, Charlotte was able to keep my expectations in check and feet on the ground with regards to salary expectations. Although I did not work with her as closely, the above could also be said of Samantha [Crosson] who echoed the same professionalism and friendliness as Charlotte. The whole experience left a very good impression of Ambition and I can easily see myself using them for a third time if/when I look to take my next step in my career'.

"Charlotte at Ambition was ever so helpful from the very beginning of my employment search. She sent over excellent career opportunities frequently and helped me secure a new position within weeks. Whenever I spoke to her on the phone, I felt like I was talking to a friend, she was so friendly which made working with her so easy. I had a very quick turn around on one of the positions I was put forward for by Charlotte, and ended up being offered the role straight after my interview. Charlotte was there to help me prepare for my interview the day before, with an early meeting at 8am so I could fit it around my busy work schedule, and on hand to have a quick chat on the morning beforehand to settle any last minute nerves. She thoroughly went through the interview prep, so no stone was left unturned and was always helpful if I had any questions. I am ever so grateful to Charlotte and the team at Ambition for all their help, and stay in contact with Charlotte to update her on how I am getting on."

Outside of Work
