About Us

We established OneAmbition in response to numerous requests from senior professionals for confidential career advice and mentoring. In the past, this need was met by executive search agencies who invested their time to steer your career and broker your placement. The playing field has now changed. Many large corporations now run their own in-house recruitment and executive search. Individuals are now left with a myriad of paths to source their next step and often don't know where to start.

A OneAmbition consultant taps into their indepth knowledge and experience of the international market across Europe. We have the information and the knowhow to share with you meet your ambition.
