Our Story

Ambitek Has Ambition

Ambitek has always been ambitious and is a true underdog in every sense of the word. Launched in 2010 during the midst of the devastating global recession, we started trading from extremely humble beginnings - simply put, a small living room situated in Salford, Greater Manchester.

Within months we had to add the kitchen to our office space due to hiring additional members of staff! To this day we still laugh at how we were climbing over each other to answer phones, accessing printers and how we had to take work breaks to play with our kids in the back yard once they’d get back from school. Working within the kitchen we did have the obvious benefit of being sat next to the kettle, so I’m sure you can imagine there was no shortage of brews!

Fast forward to July 2011, against all odds and against a tough economy, Ambitek was doing well! We decided the time was right to acquire our own offices. We searched far and wide but finally decided on Eccles Town Centre, Salford. The premises were centrally located, offering 3 storeys of office space, excellent transport links and access to much needed parking facilities. In September 2011 we acquired the building outright, in doing so, we future proofed the business enabling us to hire future like-minded consultants who could grow our services even further.

Our next milestone was the 31st March 2013, through hard work, dedication and commitment we had hit £1 million sales turnover. Within 3 years of trading we had gone from £0 to £1 million, from a home kitchen to a 3 storey office, from 1 staff to 6 staff, from 1 contractor to 50 contractors. 

So where are we today?

We currently employ 20 full time staff who all play an active role in day to day business development and operations. After successfully launching our Merseyside branch, located in St. Helens, in 2015 we have now increased our regional presence further by opening 3 new offices in 2017 covering Birmingham, Nottingham and Leeds giving us comprehensive coverage of the Midlands, the North West and West Yorkshire.

As part of our continuous improvement we have undergone rigorous audits against our processes and systems and are proud to say we are a Corporate Member of the REC, RISQS Audit Approved, GLA Licence Holder and ISO 9001 Certified*.

Thanks to our hard working candidates, loyal customers and devoted staff we continue to grow our brand and business and look forward to continuing our development without any compromises to our core company values.

We have a truly wonderful business that has touched the lives of many people whether this be candidates, clients or colleagues. We hope going forward you allow us to share our strong family values and wealth of recruitment expertise with you.
