Ambrose Recruitment celebrate 1st birthday with adventurer Jamie McDonald
McDonald, who famously completed a solo 5,000 mile coast to coast run across Canada, was guest of honour at Ambrose Recruitment’s recent first birthday party, held at The Daffodil, a popular venue in Cheltenham.
He entertained over 40 staff and clients from the Cheltenham-based recruitment firm as he divulged his life story as an adventurer, fundraiser, speaker and part-time superhero.
“We wanted to do something a little different, and with Jamie, a self-confessed part-time Super Hero, we certainly got that,” said Director Robert Dove, from Ambrose Recruitment.
“It sounds like a cliché but he was one of the most inspiring speakers I have ever heard. His tales of exploration are Forrest Gump-esque. Coupled with his passion and commitment to fundraising, he is one in a million. He made many people in that room last night sit up and take note of their own lives, realising what is important and trying to identify how to achieve one’s own ambitions.”
Ambrose Recruitment, based in Cheltenham’s Ambrose Street, specialise in recruiting professionals for roles in engineering, technical and supply chain positions. Founded 12 months ago, the business has gone from strength to strength.
In what has been a whirlwind year, Ambrose Recruitment has successfully placed hundreds of professionals into jobs within the engineering sector and related industries, working with many leading global businesses throughout the UK.
Robert added: “It’s been a wonderful first 12 months, whereby we have exceeded our initial targets and are continuing by the day to build an impressive portfolio of clients throughout the whole of the UK. By continuing to focus on the first rate service we offer to both clients and candidates alike, the aim is to have significantly grown our business base by the time our second birthday comes around”.
