As a Mathematics graduate, I have always had a knack for solving problems and providing solutions. I am passionate about giving back, therefore I was a Mathematics teacher in a secondary school before embarking a journey into Education Recruitment and supporting those around me. Being a naturally ambitious professional, I aspire to be the greatest I can be and believe every individual has the potential for greatness and I love helping them reach it, which is one of the many reasons I got into recruitment.
Recent placements include:
Working capital controller at A&O
Revenue controller at WFW

Pricing specialist at Baker mckenzie
Commercial analyst at Mishcon De Reya
Outside of work
I am a foodie at heart, I believe food has the universal quality of being able to transcend linguistic and cultural barriers when explored and appreciated with an open mind, it’s one of the many things that can connect us. Sharing food is what gives me joy, but creating a greater awareness of food waste and how to minimise this and have a zero-waste footprint is something that I believe is very important. I also have a huge sense of wanderlust and love embarking on many adventures.
Sumaya and the overall team at Ambition were so helpful during my job search and I couldn't recommend them enough. Not only did she find my current role but she also kept in contact with me afterwards to make sure I was settled with the company.Soraya Stitou-Valbuena, Pricing Analyst
Latham & Watkins
I had the pleasure of having Sumaya as my recruiter for my recent job placement. I was really impressed with the communication and the constant updates of progress during the recruitment process.Boaz Quartey, Pricing Strategist
Having dealt with a number of Recruitment professionals during recent job search, I would not hesitate to recommend Sumaya (and her colleagues at Ambition) as being of the highest quality. Throughout the pre-qualification and interview process all communication was timely, informed and accurate; and therefore extremely helpful & beneficial.Nick Kates, Legal Finance Systems Analyst / Manager
Sumaya is an outstanding recruiter who consistently goes the extra mile. She is friendly, approachable, helpful and understanding, as well as demonstrating professionalism and passion in her work. I appreciate her quick response, efficiency and prompt follow-up to my requests. I recently worked with Sumaya on the recruitment for a newly established position in an area we have not previously recruited in so what I valued the most is her in-depth understanding of the market and the various categories of candidates that she presented to us and she was able to carefully guide us through the this and offered advice and guidance throughout. She is extremely effective at her job and it’s a pleasure to recommend her as an accomplished recruiting professional.Peter Christiansen, Director of International Finance

Sumaya is amazing at her job, she helped me a lot with finding a new role and really does care. She made sure I came in the day before my interview to go over practice questions which really helped. She also guided me every step of the way by keeping me updated, and trying her best to find me the right role which I would enjoy. I would recommend her to everyone.Analee Williams, Credit Controller
Sumaya and Ambition provided a full support throughout the entire process of changing job. Although I was demanding they've been able to negotiate and obtain what I wanted and needed for a new position!Noemie Goin, Billing Coordinator
