  2. "Recruitment Consultant Role"

    I worked at Ambition full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great environment, sharing, good group of people to work with, everyone was bright energetic and from different places, I loved my manager

    Cons

    Management can abuse power easily, seen management (AD levels) asking senior/mgmt consultants to source for them and then giving them only 1% of what they deserve for basically doing all the work. Responsible for driving talent out the door when you abuse your power.

    Pros

    -Great team vibrancy and culture, everyone really wants each other to do well and be supportive of a growing boutique with the backing of the larger international counter parts.

    -Autonomy within your role/desk to build as you see fit

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing, encourage, support and advise accordingly!

    I have been working at Ambition full-time

    Pros

    I've been in the business for a few years now and the working environment throughout my time has always been one of real positivity.

    There is a lot of autonomy to make things happen in your own market and you're encouraged to really develop as a recruiter.

    Ambition is a nice place to work with a management team that helps to get the best out of you.

    Cons

    Honestly, couldn't really think of anything overly negative.

    Advice to Management

    Keep making this place an interactive, high performing and safe environment to work in.

    I have been working at Ambition full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Excellent culture
    Competitive salary and commission structure - arguably one of the best
    Supportive management team
    Opportunities for progression and learning
    A high level of autonomy
    Genuinely nice team - very much a grown-up environment compared to your typical recruitment agency

    Cons

    No cons I can think of except having more benefits and more agile working, but they're not really cons

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing

    I worked at Ambition full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    The location of the consultancy is very nice and the surrounding areas. Management are very friendly and warm. Nice environment

    Cons

    Areas of admin needs improvement. Got the impression that they were unable to complete basic tasks despite job titles. Lots of favouritism.

    Advice to Management

    Induction and weekly check ups should be better practised. So management doesn’t appear to be bullying.
