Roles I Recruit
My core focus is on C-suite and leadership positions in Finance & Accounting and Marketing & BD for Professional Services firms throughout the UK and internationally.
My career in recruitment started in 2009 when I joined Ambition’s London office. In my first couple of years in recruitment, I gained exposure to both temporary and permanent recruitment across a broad base of clients and candidates predominately within the professional services area.
In 2012 I moved to our Singapore office initially as a Senior Consultant, then into a Divisional Manager role for our Sales & Marketing business and our Supply Chain & Procurement business which we launched in 2013.
In 2015 I got the opportunity to return back to our London office as Associate Director for our award-winning BD & Marketing team which specialises in recruiting across BD, Marketing & Communications within the professionals services area.
I was promoted to Director in early 2018 and now focus on Executive Search as well as leading the legal division, covering Finance & Accounting, BD, Marketing & Communications.
Some of my recent placements include:
- Business Director/COO (law firm)
- Senior Finance Transformation Consultant (Interim) (consultancy)
- Chief Marketing Officer - North America (property)
- Senior Finance Project Manager (Interim) (consultancy)
- Finance Director (consultancy)
Outside of work
I got the travelling bug when I lived in Singapore and visited some amazing countries across Asia so now I’m back in the UK I’m committed to visiting more of Europe.
"Matthew placed me in my current role and I couldn't be happier with the advice he provided me. He fully briefed me and provided continued support throughout the process, always on hand when I had any questions. I felt like we were a team in securing the role and would absolutely go back to Matthew for future moves. Given the support I received I would also go back to the Ambition team when I need to recruit into my team as I know they will look after their candidates and only send people through who they believe have the potential to be my next hire."Lucy Rao, Business Development Director

He's the best recruiter I've come across so far. Really dedicated to his client with high level of professionalism. He definitely raised the bar on my expectations for a recruiter.Elena Liu, Regional Marketing Director
Matthew shows true dedication to his candidates as real people, not numbers on a balance sheet. He practices a thorough level of detail and follow-through rare in his industry in Asia. I will definitely work with Matthew again as a client or a candidate.Jessica Goh, Marketing Director
