With just under a fortnight to go, some of you may be struggling to find that ‘perfect’ gift for your loved one/family member/friend, especially if their an engineer. Below are a few ideas for some fun gifts that may not be ‘perfect’ but will certainly put a smile on their face!
Ball Bearing Cufflinks – Let them look smart with a set of ball bearing cufflinks that are unique, quirky and totally suitable for an engineer! If they get bored? Not to worry, the ball bearings actually function so they can spin them round to their hearts content.

An Engineering Mug – There are plenty out there to choose from, here are a few we liked.
Engino – Similar to Lego, create and build a variety of machines, contraptions and robots.

I'd also like to take the chance to thank you for all your help during my time with Ambitek. I have always been paid on time and any worries I had were sorted out incredibly quickly either by yourself or your colleagues. Thank you for making my time as a contractor as painless as possible. I would certainly have no qualms about being employed by your agency again sometime in the future. Although obviously not any time soon!!!!
I contacted Ambitek last year about employment. They quickly responded and helped me get a job! I now have a full time job thanks to Ambitek and their staff. They have always paid me on time and have always been there to help me if I needed any advice! Now me and my family are doing great all thanks to Ambitek.
"Hi, hope your all set for Xmas just wanted to say thanks to you and all the staff at Ambitek. You have all been ace this year sorting out my wages and holiday pay and the rest, it's been a real pleasure working for you this year and can't thank you enough for getting me the job in the first place it really pulled me out of it when I was down and to say I appreciate it is an understatement
Hi, thank you for having me work for Ambitek, it’s been a pleasure
Hi, just wanted to say thank you for all your help placing me, as today I signed a permanent contract. The agency have been fantastic and in the future I wouldn't hesitate in contacting you if I need a job or recommending you to others. Once again, thank you and I would like to wish you all the best for the future. (One happy customer!)
Hi, don't know if they informed you but I got a full time contract this week, thanks to you and your team for everything mate I'd be nowhere without Ambitek.
Wish everyone looked after us like you.
