Roles I Recruit
I specialise in placing experienced corporate and private tax professionals into Practice at Ambition UK. The clients I work with include big 4, top 100 accountancy firms, boutique accountancy firms and specialist tax practices.
Levels I recruit at include:
- Senior Manager
- Senior and Semi-senior
Born and bred in New Zealand, I graduated from The University of Auckland with a Bachelor of Finance & Accounting and a Postgraduate in Commercial Law. I started my career and gained my Chartered Accountancy qualification with a big 4 auditing firm based in Auckland, New Zealand. After qualifying, I decided I wanted to explore the world and made the move to Asia joining a tier 1 investment bank in Hong Kong. A few years into my Finance career I was then given an exciting opportunity to move into the world of recruitment, focusing on Finance & Accounting, and have never looked back.
After 6 years of recruiting in Hong Kong, I then moved to London and joined Ambition UK.
I always strive to provide the best service and match to my clients and candidates with a consultative approach.
Outside of work
I really enjoy spending quality time with family and friends, travelling the world, and a good wine and cheese night!
Receiving the call from Claire when I was going through my recruitment process was an absolute God-send. Claire was the only recruiter I had a great connection with. She went above and beyond for me and made me feel relaxed throughout the entire process. She was also the only one that got me multiple job offers, when other recruiters told me to lower my standards, she told me you're worth it, go for what you want. I can't even find the words to say thank you. Claire has become more than my recruiter, she is a great friend. Thank you so much for all your support Claire. You're amazing.Lola

We have found them both professional and personable.Katie Cobbold Head of HR

She took her time to get to know me better and to understand my skills and capabilities, therefore she succeed to recommend me to the right companies and for the right role. She put me through few companies and my interviews were successful and I got job offers. She assisted me all the way along and she was always present in every step until the last stage of the interview. And I m glad to say that I m talking about top 15 Accountancy firms in the city. And her support was very important to me. She really put passion on the work she does and she care about her candidates. She is very professional and friendly. I recommend her to anyone who wants to succeed in Accountancy career and I will definitely keep in touch with her for the future.
