My Background

I started my recruitment career with a small boutique legal agency in the City and have worked within PA/Business Support recruitment for the last 13 years. I joined Ambition in 2013 to set up the legal PA/Business Support side of the business recruiting PAs and Business Support staff at all levels across Professional Services.

I have built my career on providing a true consultative service to both clients and candidates alike. I have worked with some of London’s top executive assistants across professional services and have a strong network of both candidates and clients.

Roles I Recruit

I recruit for Business support roles at all levels across Professional Services, specifically focusing on Legal and Accountancy roles.

Recent Projects

I’m currently working with a range of law firms on some quite exciting roles. There have been a lot of projects across many London firms that have seen the support functions being restructured to provide a clearer career path for secretaries and PAs. It has been insightful working with firms going through this process and seeing the new structure develop.

What Clients and Candidates Say About Me

“Claudine is a prime example of how a recruiter should be! To me, a successful recruiter is not one who places me in a job, but one who helps me ease back into the London work market after living abroad for 11 years. Claudine coached me on interview techniques, advised me in detail on what to expect before each of the interviews she arranged for me and, also was frank with me and gave me space to get my thoughts together at a time I was unsure of what I wanted. Claudine successfully - and rightfully - gained my trust in her as a recruiter!” – Jill Magwenzi, Legal PA

"​I was extremely impressed how Claudine Williams asked me to the office to help give me confidence prior to my interview. She gave me some great points and made me feel good about myself (as I had been in my previous job for 15 years), and how interviewing has changed. She was absolutely brilliant."

Outside of Work

I enjoy spending time with friends and their ever growing brood of kids. After a rollercoaster week of recruitment, with the odd spin class thrown in, there is always a chilled bottle of something to be enjoyed on a Friday night with some good food!
