Our History

Ambition was founded in Australia in 1999 with a belief that whilst we didn’t want to reinvent the wheel, we did feel that there was a tremendous opportunity to carve a niche of our own in the recruitment market and build a special organisation.

We are an international recruitment business servicing specialist markets in key cities; Sydney, Melbourne, Hong Kong, Singapore and Kuala Lumpur.

We are experts in technology, banking and financial services, accounting and finance, marketing and supply chain recruitment and contracting.
