  • my experience was nothing short of exceptional

    ​I recently had the pleasure of working with James Pask from Ambitions Personnel, and I must say that my experience was nothing short of exceptional. From the moment I walked through the office door seeking assistance in my job search, to the successful placement in my new role, he demonstrated professionalism, expertise, and dedication that truly sets him apart in the industry.First and foremost, James took the time to understand my career aspirations, skills, and preferences in great detail. He didn't just focus on finding any job for me, but instead, he was genuinely committed to finding the perfect fit that aligned with my goals and values. His personalised approach made me feel valued and confident throughout the entire process.Whilst I was in the office filling in the required paperwork he stepped out and called his client to introduce me and try to arrange an interview. This process was successful, and I left the Ambitions office and went straight for an interview.One hour later I called James and gave him my feedback. A further 30 minutes and he called me with the job offer and a start date. I would say within 3 hours of walking through the door at Ambitions Personnel, James had helped me secure a new job. A job that ticks many boxes for me and will hopefully become a great career move for me.The whole team in the Peterborough branch were so friendly and helpful. Making sure I understood all aspects of agency work and putting my mind at ease. I have just been made redundant after17 years with one company.Thanks to James’s expertise and dedication, I was able to secure a fantastic job opportunity that exceeded my expectations. I am truly grateful for his support and guidance throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend James and the team at Ambitions Personnel to anyone seeking career advancement or a new job. Their commitment to excellence and personalised approach truly sets them apart in the recruitment industry.
