Paula Thirkell

Commercial Division Manager

I joined Ambitions Personnel in 2008 and now head up the commercial division for the business.

Having started as a Commercial Consultant in our Boston branch I developed my role into a Senior Consultant and Account Manager. Prior to joining Ambitions, I spent my early career within the Print and Packaging sector, I head up our specialist division of Ambitions in this area where I can utilise my specialist knowledge to engage top talent for our clients.

People are motivated to change career for all manner of reasons. I thrive on matching my clients’ requirements to candidates’ criteria. There is no better job satisfaction in recruitment than when someone secures their ideal role and is genuinely over the moon!

  • took all the stress of job hunting from me

    ​I would like to say a massive thank you to the whole Ambitions team but especially to Holly and Paula who kept in constant contact with me throughout the entire process and found me my new job! They both made me feel entirely at ease and took all the stress of job hunting from me and found me a new job quickly. Great staff and a great service, highly recommend!
