Roles I recruit:

I specialise in External Audit recruitment and my clients range from smaller independent firms right up to the Big 4. I recruit for both pure audit and general practice across all levels including Audit Semi-Senior, Audit Senior, Audit Supervisor/Assistant Manager, Audit Manager, Senior Audit Manager, Audit Directors/Partner Designate and Partner.  

My background:

Previous to joining Ambition, I worked for two medium sized practice recruiters and I have almost 7 years’ experience in the market. In my first role I was responsible for playing a key role in turning what was a new market for the company into an established team.

What candidates and clients say about me:

"I would highly recommend Sebastian and his firm for any placement services. He was very helpful with the hiring process from start to finish, and always made himself available. Sebastian took the time to guide me through the UK hiring process and help identify UK firms which would fit my profile. He immediately began reaching out to firms after we discussed my criteria. Before interviews he assisted by providing background information on the firms and immediately checked in on how the interview went after. He also did a great job managing time zone differences when scheduling interviews, given I was 6 hours behind! Sebastian showed commitment to the process and had my goals in mind the whole time."

"My experience of working with Seb was exceptional. He guided me throughout the recruitment process, provided excellent advice and help at all levels. Seb's approach is to understand personality and skills of a candidate to quickly identify which current vacancies would suit that person most. He went above and beyond to ensure I was prepared for interviews and has a approachable attitude. He helped me get a job within 2 weeks of my first meeting with him. I found Seb and his company very professional and helpful and wish him all the best for the future. Highly recommended."

"I highly recommend Sebastian Thomson for the help and support he has provided and going above and beyond to place me in the right role at the right firm. He is efficient, approachable and professional, which I believe are key skills for a great recruitment agent! Thank you Sebastian for all your efforts in finding the perfect role for me."

"I have worked with Seb for a while and he has been excellent at finding me opportunities that would suit my experience, both on the contract and permanent side. Seb is professional, listens to your needs and is easy to work with. I would highly recommend him to anyone else."


Outside of work: I am a big fan of Formula 1 and I enjoy both playing and watching tennis and golf. I love eating out and I am always looking for great places to eat.
