My background

I originally came from a technical design background, studying Architecture due to my strong interest for drawing and the arts.

During my studies, I worked in various retail roles from high street to luxury. The elements of building relationships and providing excellent service led me to consider a career within recruitment.

Having previously recruited for Accounting and Finance, the opportunity to build on my experience by joining Ambition’s Business Advisory team was certainly a challenge I could not turn down. 

Throughout my journey with Ambition I have had the pleasure of working with clients of various sizes as well as servicing outside of London due to the growing demand of talent within the regions.

I pride myself on delivering the best service to everyone within my network.

Roles I recruit

I focus on recruiting Insolvency, Restructuring and Advisory roles within Professional Services including Big 4, Top Tier, Mid-Tier Accountancy firms and specialist boutiques in both London and the rest of the UK including the financial hubs of Birmingham, Bristol, Leeds, Manchester and the South Coast.

We provide expert advise across all levels so whether you are looking to begin a career within Insolvency, Restructuring and Advisory, seeking to step into a new challenge or simply require some market insights, I can accommodate your needs.

What Clients and Candidates Say About Me

Robert has been incredibly efficient, supportive and helpful throughout my search for new employment. He managed to arrange interviews for me in less than a week and stayed in regular contact during the recruitment process, so I always felt that support was there if I needed it. Rob stayed in touch even after the confirmation of my employment, showing that he really cares about his clients. I would definitely recommend Robert to anyone looking for employment in insolvency/restructuring.” – Senior Associate, Restructuring Specialist

Robert has been extremely helpful in finding me a new role. Not only does he listen to what his client needs, he has an enormous amount of knowledge in the industry. Very grateful for the advice and efforts put in by Robert in assisting me throughout the process. He is very professional and always kept me updated throughout the process and checked in from time to time to see how I was getting along. I would highly recommend Robert and Ambition. Many thanks.” – Insolvency Administrator, Top 100 firm

Outside of work

I am a frequent 5-a-side footballer with the odd stint of golf (weather permitting!). You’ll also probably find me cheering on the Gunners (or often groaning in frustration!). Recently, I’ve taken up a new hobby in City-Dashing/Treasure Hunting.
The irony is that aside from the active side of me, you may find me running around the City trying out newly opened restaurants and searching for London’s best burger!
