Lynsey Butler

Area Branch Manager

I am a passionate Recruiter with over 15 years’ industry experience, the past 11 as a hands-on recruiting Branch Manager.

I joined Ambitions Personnel in May 2017, here I recruit for temporary and permanent roles within the commercial, senior & technical sectors across Mansfield, Worksop and surrounding districts. I love working in recruitment and couldn’t ever imagine doing anything else! No two days are the same, the role is both challenging and rewarding and I thoroughly enjoy finding the right candidate for my clients and the right jobs for my candidates.

At times you can even be a part of fundamentally changing someone’s life for the better, to do this as a career I find extremely fulfilling. I thoroughly enjoy sharing my passion for recruitment with others and helping lead and motivate teams to achieve similar outcomes, a passion which has recently earned me a promotion to Area Manager.

Favourite holiday destination?

Impossible to pick just one! I'd have to say Kenya, for its absolutely stunning natural beauty, no words could do it justice. 

Also Rome, for more of a cosmopolitan city break with years of breathtaking architecture and culture to enjoy. 

  • Saving Us Precious Time

    I have used Ambitions Personnel several times to recruit both temporary and permanent members of staff and found Lynsey in particular to be extremely professional in her approach. They gain an understanding of your business before selecting and forwarding any suitable candidates thus saving us precious time.

  • Found the perfect job for me

    I had Lynsey working with me from Ambitions, she was brilliant, always kept me informed, and found the perfect job for me first time. 10/10. Can't thank them or recommend them enough.

  • Helpful and Professional

    After finding myself in a job that I really did not want to do, I applied for a job with Ambitions Personnel. It only took a few days between applying and getting the job. I have not experienced this with other agencies as most do not even bother to reply. I was dealing with Lynsey from the beginning and found her to be very helpful and professional. From my personal experience, I would highly recommend Ambitions Personnel.

  • Professional and thorough

    I had the absolute pleasure of communicating with Lynsey Butler when I sought (& secured) new employment in October 2017. Not only were they very professional and thorough, they were extremely personable and motivating. My experience with Ambitions Personnel was engaging and uplifting throughout. I'd highly recommend this agency, they put some of the 'big recruitment names' I have previously used, in the shade.

  • Very pro-active

    They are a very pro-active company, Lynsey especially was very helpful in finding me a suitable role and the communication since has been excellent. I am registered with at least 6 agencies, but it was Ambitions once again who helped me find the perfect position!

  • Friendly and helpful

    I applied for a role advertised by Ambitions Personnel. A consultant (Lynsey) contacted me very quickly after to ask a couple more questions and possibly arrange an interview. She got me an interview within the week! Everything moved along smoothly. Lynsey was friendly, helpful and keen to make sure I did well.

  • The process was very smooth and straightforward

    I got a job as an Information Governance Officer soon after registering with the agency. The process was very smooth and straightforward. People were very friendly and helpful, especially Lynsey, who I was frequently in touch with. All payments to me were on time. I initially joined only temporary for a period of 3 months but I ended up staying for 18 months. I enjoyed the whole experience and would recommend it to everyone.
