Ashley Morton

Partner / Contracts

Contact Location: SWITZERLAND

Since starting as a Trainee Consultant in 2010, I have worked in positions such as Consultant, Senior Consultant, Team Leader and in recent years, working as Darwin's first Partner. This role is a customer focused role working with some of the larger businesses in Switzerland as well as the smaller ones with aggressive growth / project plans that have high demand for temporary staff whilst also taking full ownership and responsibility for the Swiss Contracts Division. Working in close partnership with these companies allows me to fully understand their business and find them people that don't just fit technically, but also socially and culturally. I do this by spending at least one full day per month working from the office of each of my key customers. Through these regular client visits and a genuine interest in my clients’ daily business, I am able to find them the best people rather than just someone whose profile fits the role on paper. If I were to describe my recruitment style, I would say it is direct and efficient which I believe works well in the Swiss contracts market.

During my time at Darwin I have been privileged to have won a number of incentives and awards including trips to Las Vegas, Dubai, Marbella on two occasions, New York and Hvar, Croatia. I am also proud to have won the Contracts Consultant of the year award on three occasions in 2014/15, 2016/17 and 2017/18. In March 2018, the business unit that I head up also won the award for Contracts Team of the Year. Whilst I am proud of all of this, my proudest moment of my career so far is being awarded the award for being the “Best Temporary Consultant” at the 2018 Global Recruiter Awards which is the highest accolade achievable by a Contract Recruitment Consultant.

If you are searching for a new role or you are a customer who feels this type of service could be of interest to you then please give me a call at any time on +41 41 506 29 18. Alternatively, send an email to and we can arrange a time to speak.
