I’m a passionate recruiter who is a genuine advocate of adding the “human touch” to human resourcing.
I’m an accountant by profession and worked for global automobile and IT companies. Moving to Sydney, I wanted to use my accounting technical knowledge and have the avenue to change people’s lives, and recruiting in the finance space exactly does that for me!
I specialise in temporary and contract roles in accounting and finance in the Sydney market. Coming from an accounting background, I am more able to align the role requirements and the skill sets available in the market and offer consultations regarding current market and employment trends and industry updates.
Roles I recruit:
Head of Finance
Senior Tax Manager, Tax Manager
Commercial Analyst & Finance Analyst
Finance Systems Analyst
Finance Business Partner
Senior Financial Accountant/Financial Accountant
We were engaged by a client who was finding it hard to backfill a company accountant role, where the incumbent was already halfway through his notice period. They had already advertised and worked with different agencies for weeks. The client said they received the same profiles from two different agencies which shows how shallow the talent pool in the market is.
As I am well-networked with immediately available accountants, I reached out to my network with the skill sets they are looking for, sent my shortlist with 24-hours turn around, interviewed the same day and offered and accepted afterwards!
The client was able to do a proper hand over making sure the deliverables are looked after, and the candidate was very pleased with how quick and efficient the whole process had been.
Mae is an amazing recruiter, she provided me with the great job opportunity I was looking for. She efficiently assisted me through the interviews and pre-employment check before I happily secured the job. It is such a pleasure to work with her.Joy Wang, Financial Accountant

Professionalism - Mae Alvar has a good understanding on the job scope/responsibilities and provides good opportunity to align with candidate's career progress. Service oriented - In terms of the recruitment service, I do feel it differentiate from other recruiters, in the way of periodical follow up on through pre-on board, on-board, post-on board (in a few months). Overall, everything counts, and I appreciate her advice and the opportunity working with Ambition Recruitment. For any good quality referral, I will definitely go with Mae.Tina Shi, Senior Financial Accountant

I have worked with Mae on the recruitment of contractor accountants into my team. Mae is very efficient; she could find the contractors with very short notice, and the turnaround was really quick. She is great in communication, always tries to understand the requirements in detail, and offers different options. It's always the pleasure to work with Mae, and I hope to continue working with her further.Dan Tasmagambetov, Group Financial Controller
