Holly reached out to me about a role and despite having not met her before, felt an instant rapport. She was so professional and great to deal with throughout the four-month recruitment process, keeping me updated, uncovering the answer to any and every question I had and reassured me at every point. I am incredibly grateful to Holly for providing me the opportunity, as well as her patience and diligence along the way.

Candidate stories

Holly was amazing at helping me find a new role within the communications industry. We initially met before Covid and as the pandemic progressed, Holly kept in touch, persisting to find me the right role.

Thanks to her strong industry connections and knowledge of the market, Holly was able to find a role within Allianz that was the perfect fit.

Claire Plasto, placed candidate, Allianz

Holly Ash from Ampersand is a delight to work with. She always provides us with candidates who not only match the brief, but exceed expectations in their relevant work experience and culture fit. Holly has high emotional intelligence, is genuine, communicative and understands our rules of engagement inside out. She is a terrific ambassador for the Ampersand brand, and provides an excellent candidate experience. I’d give a 10/10 for Holly and Ampersand!
