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 and 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 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, awards and holidays. 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 “Best Temporary Consultant” at the 2018 Global Recruiter Awards which is the highest accolade achievable by a Contract Recruitment Consultant.

Ashley Morton's Testimonials

Ashley has undoubtably proven not only his competence and capabilities in understanding requests (even if lousy job specifications are provided with little detail), he constantly provided top profiles in an incredible 24 hours of receiving requests, and most important, making sure that candidates were fully informed of roles, had required technical and personal skills required, were available and had no permit constrictions. Such quality resourcing for such complex roles is extremely time consuming but Ashley addressed every request and delivered. His flexibility to meet our strict corporate parameters were extremely appreciated ,hereby demonstrating his attitude of "filling roles and having a happy customer" being more important and satisfying. His dedication to his job, his interest in providing top impressive profiles quickly, his loyalty to me as his customer and his will to have a "win-win" success situation for all parties, was not only an asset to me in fulfilling my work, but helped build the business for NTT DATA Switzerland. Such a unique partnership in a competitive business is extremely rare to find today and Ashley Morton is in my eyes a person whom i will always want to work with in future endeavors, whom i will always treasure how his unconditional support in all facets of my work was invaluable, and most of all, a person whom I can consider a trustworthy, honest and straight-forward Recruiter whom I hope will remain a friend, advisor and partner in upcoming recruitment activities we pursue throughout Switzerland in the upcoming future. I wish Ashley Morton only the best in his career in recruitment and am happy to have had the opportunity to work together with him and in my 21 years experience in this field, to find a Recruiter with true values and principles in such a cut-throat business.
