My Background

I started my career in recruitment working for an independent commercial recruitment consultancy, 14 years ago. 

I quickly discovered that I enjoyed the pace and variety of working in the temp division and have focused on this aspect of recruitment ever since. 

I have experience working both operationally and strategically, developing and supporting teams and delivering quality focused recruitment solutions to a range of highly prestigious clients – ranging from high volume recruitment campaigns to bespoke, targeted headhunting projects. 

My ethos has always been to live and breathe the ‘Consultant’ aspect of my role which has enabled me to build a strong network of clients and candidates alike.  

Roles I recruit

I recruit Temporary and Interim Business Support staff at all levels of seniority.

What candidates and clients say about me

“I would recommend all future candidates and employers to go through Lara to get the perfect match for your requirements - someone who actually listens and delivers rather than just "filling a space" and "hitting their targets". Thank you Lara.” - Candidate, Board Level PA

“Lara has always worked hard whenever I have challenged her to find us the best candidates for our roles! She always delivers even when I asked for 30 temps to start the next day! She listens and always gets it right!” - Client, HR Manager

"It has been a pleasure working with Ambition, Lara Mitchard matched me to some really great and interesting temporary assignments, which enabled me to really figure out what long-term career move I should be making. The level of communication was brilliant. I can honestly say this is one of the best agency's I have come across, they are truly transparent and trustworthy. There back of house admin in terms of timesheets/payables also ran without a hitch."  - Lisa Goldsmith, EA at Mazars

Outside of work

I enjoy spending time with family and friends, cooking (but not without a glass of wine in my hand!) and reading.  I have recently developed a love of theatre and enjoy nice holidays, having lived abroad for several years previously, so like to get away as often as I can.
