    I have been working at Ambition full-time


    -Great culture, very welcoming and friendly teams.

    -Very accessible Learning & Development team with great training.

    -Good sized organisation, big enough to have strong resources behind you but small enough that it still feels like you're working with friends.

    - Strong promotion of ethical, responsible recruitment and good internal audit policies.

    - Very clear outline on what needs to be done if you want to move up in the company. very clear structure and good internal opportunities if you want them


    The business needs to be quicker to exit people who are not displaying good qualities or capabilities.

    Advice to Management

    It's a great company with a great team but more opportunities for team building/internal events would be appreciated.

    Recruitment Consultant Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Singapore (Singapore)
    No Offer
    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Ambition (Singapore (Singapore)) in June 2016.


    I applied through the "Career" section on their website and got an email invitation to a brief phone interview in a few days. The interview lasted no longer than 15 minutes. They asked me mostly about what do I know about recruitment industry, why do I want to work in this specific industry, how I imagine myself what a recruitment consultant does on a day to day basis, what salary would i expect to earn in this position.
