Charlie Taylor

Branch Manager

I joined Ambitions in March 2017 in the capacity of Team Leader, excited by the challenge of navigating the Colchester branch through its next period of growth.  Experienced in both industrial and commercial recruitment, I now oversee the team’s daily activities and take the lead on ensuring all our clients and candidate’s expectations are exceeded.

Prior to recruitment, I spent 10 successful years in banking management and financial services.  I’m a self-motivated and enthusiastic individual who thrives in a fast-paced environment. A people-person, I take great pleasure in ensuring the success of others, as well as being driven by my own personal goals. I pride myself on being a good leader and take a proactive approach to supporting and coaching my team.

  • Charlie listened to my needs and requirements closely

    I have dealt with many recruiting firms and for the most part, the experiences were bad to mediocre at best. However, dealing with Charlie at Ambitions was a breath of fresh air. I am so impressed with the quality and volume of resumes I received after just one conversation. This is a clear indication that Charlie listened to my needs and requirements closely. Therefore, the candidates that were referred to me were the best possible fits for the open roles. I like having the personal, professional insight that she brought to the process. I look forward to having future dealings with you.

  • A rare find in the overpopulated arena of recruiters!

    I have worked with Charlie as one of her clients for around 2 years now and I have used agencies on numerous occasions over the last couple of years to recruit within our business. Ambitions have always understood the brief well and provided a short list of quality candidates. Charlie is always helpful and reachable which is good within our industry. The team consists of highly professional and credible recruiters whom I enjoyed working with and would have no hesitation in recommending. A rare find in the overpopulated arena of recruiters!

  • I Am Very Grateful And Would Definitely Recommend Ambitions Personnel

    I would like to seize this opportunity to thank you for inviting me to work at TBS back when I first came to Ambitions looking for a job in October. This has been and continues being a quite fulfilling experience for me, and I can surely say the same for my other temporary working colleagues.  I am very grateful for it and would definitely recommend Ambitions Personnel as an outgoing, reliable and resourceful company to other jobseekers.
