My Background:

Having taken up a career in recruitment right after graduation, I was initially attracted to the opportunity to learn valuable relationship-building skills through my dealings with all sorts of people - from fellow colleagues and bosses to clients and candidates. Being rewarded for hard work put in makes it even better!

Roles I recruit for:

I specialise in contract roles recruitment across all areas of IT within the banking and financial services space. Such roles include those in software engineering, IT infrastructure and project management, just to name a few. These positions range from mid to senior level.

IT continues to be an ever-changing environment and I enjoy dealing with a broad range of roles that didn't exist in the past. It's challenging but exciting.

What my clients and candidates say about me:

“Daniel is very quick to deliver outcomes and at the same time very diligent in following the right processes. It has always been my pet peeve for vendor recruiters to not following processes. So far Ambition consultants have always very compliant for my standards. That’s why I appreciate working with them on roles in the bank.”

“Daniel is a reliable recruitment partner. When given a role, he has consistently delivered suitable candidates. While he is an IT contracting specialist, we have also successfully filled other roles through him as he is able to listen to the requirements in a job brief and take it onboard. I would count on him to fill our more niche positions.”

"Daniel is one of the very few consultants that I have had the chance to explore career opportunities with who is honest, fair, and very professional with a great touch of warmth. Importantly, what came across to me is his practical nature and a person who is aware of exactly what one's expectations are. He is trustworthy since you know exactly where you stand with him and he manages his candidates well. He presents facts as they are and provides sound advice."

Outside of Ambition:

I hit the pool, run track, the outdoors, and going to the gymnasium for training. This allows me to maintain my fitness level since I am quite a competitive athlete and is a great way to de-stress and relax my mind after a long day of work!
