Ambition appoints new associate director, financial services
Manders brings a wealth of experience across the Financial Services market, with particular emphasis on operations and middle office.
His outstanding recruitment knowledge is backed up with previous hands on working experience for some major financial institutions in their collateral and cash management functions. A big part of his remit at Ambition will be to develop and grow the Financial Services team and add new offerings to the Ambition’s clients and candidates.
Andrea Williams, managing director of Ambition UK said, "It is great to have James on board. His previous experience in Financial Services and in recruitment will undoubtedly drive forward our growth aspirations across this market. We have exciting plans and James will be a key player in making them a reality."
Manders said, “It is a great opportunity to come on board and provide value to the Financial Services team and wider Ambition group. The business has an excellent reputation with its clients, candidates and employees, making the decision to join very simple, but there is plenty of scope to grow revenues and add further value to our existing and new stakeholders.”
Nicky Acuna Ocana, director of professional services, said, “Scarlette has been with Ambition for over 3 years and in that period of time has developed into a leading member of the BD&M team. Scarlette has always led from the front and through hard work and determination, she has developed some market leading client and candidate initiatives.
"I have enjoyed working with her over the last 18 months and I am delighted to see all her commitment and dedication to her team and Ambition result in her promotion.”
Both James and Scarlette’s appointments are with immediate effect.
