On Friday 16th December, our branches were pleased to support Christmas Jumper Day 2016, in support of ‘Save The Children’, raising an impressive £107.19 in donations!
We were proud to once again be sponsors of the award for ‘Young Sportswoman of the Year’ at this year’s Lincolnshire Sports Awards. The ceremony, held on Thursday 3rd November, at the Lincolnshire Showground’s Epic Centre, was, as always, jam packed with inspirational stories of our county’s sporting heroes.
Presented by TV and radio sports commentator, Conor McNamara, we enjoyed a brilliant evening.
Nominated for our sponsored award were three of the county’s most promising young female talent.
Darcie Proud for her table tennis (ranked second nationally for U13s) and footballing achievements, Naya Patel who represented England U17 at EU nations water polo and Olivia Clark who has played football for England U15 team and represents Lincolnshire in cricket too.
Despite all being very worthy nominees, Naya Patel was crowned winner on the night. Congratulations to Naya.
We wish them all well with their future sporting endeavours. Thank you to the Lincolnshire Sports team for hosting another great event.
Congratulations to our Temp of the Month for October 2016, Loraine Webster from Boston.
Loraine took her first temporary assignment with Ambitions Personnel over 10 years ago and has always received glowing feedback. She has excellent attendance and her flexibility to cover bookings often at short notice is always very much appreciated by our clients. Loraine is pictured receiving a M&S Gift Card and Flowers with Sarah Fletcher (Support Manager) from the Rheumatology Department at United Lincolnshire Hospitals.
Congratulations to our Temp of the Month for September 2016 – Karol Dudek from Grantham.
Karol is extremely reliable, very well liked by his colleagues and a valued member of our client’s team.

On Saturday 3rd September, three of our senior management team will commence the biggest sporting challenge of their lives so far, by cycling from London to Paris in 3 days in support of the British Heart Foundation (BHF)!
Mandy, Claire and Becky will set off from London on Saturday morning, and will have to endure 3 days of cycling 113km+ per day, before reaching the finish line at the beautiful Palace of Versailles on Monday evening!
All with limited experience in the saddle, the girls have been fitting their training around their already very busy lives and are under no illusion about the challenge that awaits them!
Mandy Watson, Director, says “We’d discussed taking on a big challenge for charity and had looked at various options before settling on London to Paris by bike – it seemed like a good idea at the time, and one I might live to regret. Whatever happens, I’m already looking forward to seeing Paris on Monday having hopefully raised a substantial amount of money for a very worthwhile cause”
We’ll be updating you on their the journey from start to finish by posting regular updates to our Twitter page @ambitionsltd using #AmbitionsL2P
The BHF are the nation’s heart charity and the largest independent funder of cardiovascular research. Coronary heart disease is the UK’s single biggest killer but the BHF are leading the fight against it. Their pioneering research has helped to transform the lives of people living with heart and circulatory conditions.
You can sponsor Mandy, Claire and Becky via their Just Giving page by clicking here.
Hello, my name is Sophie, and I am one of over 40,000 Career Ready students in the UK. The Career Ready programme is designed to support young people in gaining valuable experience and key skills needed for the world of work, through masterclasses, mentors and a work placement. I was incredibly lucky to have my summer work placement at Ambitions Personnel in Lincoln.
Lizzie has guided me through my two-week placement, where I learnt key skills needed for the workplace. In the office, I learnt how to do key administrative skills such as filing, archiving and filling out forms, but also skills more specific to a recruitment agency, such as marking English tests and contacting workers. I also shadowed Lizzie as she carried out an interview.
I was taught how to greet people and answer the phone in a professional way, which has really helped me to develop my confidence. I shadowed Dawn at reception, who was very helpful in showing me how to deal with people’s queries in a busy environment. Dealing with such a wide range of people at the front desk has also helped me to develop my communication skills.
Before I came to Ambitions Personnel, I didn’t very much experience of a workplace at all, but the people there have been really helpful and supportive, and they have helped me to have a wonderful two weeks! I have learnt transferable skills and had some important experience that I can use for my own career in the future.
Congratulations to our ‘Temp of the Month’ for August 2016, Ryan from our Mansfield branch.
Ryan has been working on assignment for us as a Welder at our client, Quickits. Quickits have been impressed with how well he has settled in to their team and the quality of his work; we have been delighted to receive such glowing reports.

We were pleased to once again host our clients and guests at Southwell Races Ladies Day on Sunday 14th August.
The popular event sees thousands of racegoers enjoy an action packed day of racing and entertainment. For another successive year, the sunshine came out and the weather was fabulous!
We were able to enjoy the day from our private hospitality marquee and garden, where the drinks were flowing and we were treated a delicious buffet followed by afternoon tea.
Thank you to everyone who joined us – we hope to see you again next year!
