PADDY BURTT PROMOTED
PADDY BURTT PROMOTED TO DIVISIONAL DIRECTOR AT AMBITION
Burtt to drive growth as Financial Services revenue increases 43% over last 6 months
Mid-sized, specialist recruiter increases UK headcount by 31%
Paddy Burtt has been promoted to divisional director of Banking & Financial Services at Ambition, the finance and professional services recruitment firm.
Burtt has taken responsibility for the direction and development of the entire Banking & Financial Services division, which accounts for over half of Ambitions UK business. While capitalising on established relationships within Banking, Insurance, Investment Management and Hedge Funds, Burtt will continue to focus on growing specialist functional areas including Change Management, Risk and Compliance.
Tim Gilbert, Managing Director, Ambition UK, commented We are very excited about Paddy leading one of the most successful areas of our group. Since he joined Ambition late last year he has brought energy, enthusiasm and plenty of interesting ideas to an established but changing business. We have a fantastic opportunity with Paddy at the helm to continue to substantially grow this part of our UK offering.
Having seen Financial Services revenues grow 43% over the last six months, Ambition has undertaken an aggressive programme of hiring and has increased headcount by 31% over the same period.
Burtt commented, To be given this opportunity at a time when our Financial Services business is so buoyant is exciting and challenging. Events over the last two years have created a perfect storm and there is a real opportunity for firms like ours to steal large swathes of market share from established competitors who have struggled to maintain both service levels and reputations. Weve seen talented fee-earners flock to us in the last six months, keen to advance their careers in a stable, well managed and professional environment.
Burtt has over 14 years recruitment and management experience. He previously operated at director level at Badenoch & Clark and Morgan Hunt.
