Claire Bishop


Originally from Essex, I’d had a successful career working in banking within the City of London before relocating to Newark and joining the company in 1995. Shortly afterwards, we opened our second branch in Newark.

Nearly 25 years and several offices later, it’s safe to say that times have changed, but my passion for recruitment has remained the same. It’s fast-paced, competitive and no two days are the same!

Commercially-driven, I ensure our business objectives are met whilst remaining extremely hands-on; mentoring our managers and working with our clients on a daily basis.  

We continue to experience significant growth year on year, with no plans to slow down, and I’m excited to see what the future holds.

  • I Couldn't Hope For A Better Employer

    From my 1st day, to today, Ambitions has been nothing but supportive, encouraging and empowering. I couldn't hope for a better employer. I am so grateful to work for Ambitions, for Claire Haggar and Amanda Watson. Leaders who not only celebrate my wins, but also help me turn any mistake into a learning opportunity. Their guidance has been influential, and I know it will only shape and develop my skills and habits further as I continue my professional career with such a fantastic company.
