What clients and candidates say about me:     

“Thoroughly recommend Pamella to potential candidates, having recently helped me to secure my current position of BD Manager. From the outset Pamella made the effort to really understand the type of roles I was targeting, enabling her to make thoughtful recommendations throughout. During the interview process itself, she went above and beyond by proactively contacting me with ideas and suggestions ensuring I was thoroughly prepared at every stage.” Sam Austin, Business Development Manager (International Dispute Resolution) at Bird & Bird

“In all my experience in working with legal recruiters, I would say Pamella has been the best in adding real value when it matters most. She is a real pleasure to work with and I am incredibly grateful for her support.” Adele Barrett, Senior HR Manager at Reed Smith LLP

 “I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Pamella to anyone who is looking for a job. She is incredibly professional and efficient but also took a genuine interest in helping me look for a new role. Pamella is excellent at her job and I am extremely grateful to her for all her help and support.” Katherine McPhillips Internal Digital Communications Executive at JLL

“Pamella took time to understand what I was looking for in a new role and provided support and encouragement throughout the process. The service she provided was top quality and I would highly recommend her.”  Lauren Hoffman Senior Business Development Executive - Dispute Resolution at Simmons & Simmons

“Pamella provided me with not only professional but also psychological support. She was always kind and appropriate and promptly updated me with news and opportunities. I don't know if a consultant's job is also to reassure you but I never felt alone and she always reminded me that the right opportunity would have come for me. The support I received really exceeded my expectations. I was always prepared for interviews and also given extra information whenever possible.

I truly believe that Pamella's excellence is not only due to her professional experience. I think she also has a natural attitude towards it. If you're looking for your next step, I highly recommend Pamella as well as the whole team at Ambition. They have done a great job for me and really seem to care about creating valuable relationships with their clients.” – Martina Petrosino, Business Development Coordinator, CMS Cameron McKenna

Outside of Work

I can be found exploring either in London or abroad. I also enjoy getting muddy! In the last year, I have completed obstacle course races such as Winter Wolf, Tough Guy, Spartan Sprint and Ninja Warrior.
