Jenna Blades

Senior Consultant

I joined the Newark branch in November 2012 and specialised in recruiting for permanent, commercial, and temporary roles. In 2019 I took some time out to start a family and returned back to Ambitions in June 2021.

Now focusing on the industrial sector I enjoy the fast pace within recruitment and working with tight deadlines. Every day I’m faced with a new challenge which makes my job role more exciting. I am passionate about providing the best level of customer service for both clients and candidates. I find it highly rewarding getting a candidate their perfect job role.

If you love your job you’ll never work a day in your life!

  • ​Really good experience

    ​Really good experience with Ambitions, first time working with the agency but Jenna made it a very enjoyable and stress free experience. Especially when swapping over to my new job from the job the agency gave me. Jenna was so helpful whenever I had an issue with anything and quick to respond!

  • 5 stars is not enough should be 10

    Absolutely love ambitions if it was not for them I don't where I'd be. they helped me get my life on track and Jenna, Demie and Kevin have all been amazing and would recommend anyone who needs work should go there. They really step up and go beyond to help anyone who needs work or help if the work isnt suitable. They put you where you are very happy to go. To me, 5 stars is not enough should be 10. Absolutely amazing group

  • Always able to help when we require short notice staff

    Having had dealings with ambitions personnel for the past 4 years I can positively say it’s been an absolute pleasure. My main point of call is a lady called Jenna Blades.  Jenna is always able to help when we require short notice staff and always brings a professional yet cheerful approach to the way she deals with our business requirements. We can always rely on Jenna to make sure we are never left short staffed.

  • Quick and efficient

    I have worked with Ambitions Personnel since November 2016 in several departments at Knowhow and some short assignments in other companies. Ambitions' administration has been good and Jenna has always done her best to keep me in work. All the staff at Ambitions seem very keen to help and deal with any concerns you may have quickly and efficiently. They have certainly been there for me for the past two years.
