ambitionOne‘s mission is to maximize the career potential of our members, through life time career care. Our members work at FORTUNE 500 companies, achieved internal promotions and graduated from top universities, 23% have an MBA or PhD degree and over 50% are female. Membership is through recommendation only. We are game-changing professionals that make a positive impact, allowing teams and companies to win. True outperformers.


The ambitionOne network offers direct access to the most admired employers, offers a network of peers including quarterly circle events, and we help you boost your personal brand. Through our blogs, magazine and social media channels we share insights from our members, offering instant visibility.

Apart from the concrete ambition of our members (their ideal next job) we maintain an accurate database of their soft skills, we can match e.g. based on desired Myers Briggs Type Indicators (click here to do the MBTI test).

In her book Personal Branding and Marketing Yourself, executive coach, trainer, and consultant Rita B. Allen recommends to “be visible” and “in play”;  “Building a brand means getting out of your office and becoming very visible to your target audience and potential customers and clients. Attend networking events and become active in your profession and community. The more visible you are, the stronger your brand.”

“Your career matters”Joost d’Hooghe Commercial Director DSM Engineering Plastics and founder of ambitionOne, “apart from direct access to the best companies and positions that are sometimes not even publicly posted, ambitionOne offers direct access to a unique global tribe of like minded professionals that can support you to develop further, or offer advice on a specific challenge you are facing.

I founded ambitionOne because I experienced that existing recruiters and headhunters operate in a too reactive way and that they are unable to facilitate hiring managers in this high performance era. Additionally it is practically impossible for a company to maintain relevant during the entire career of one professional given the limited career opportunities because of the reduction of middle management layers.

Addressing these needs ambitionOne offers a matchmaking solution that serves our members as well as our clients, the “admired employers”. We match the ambition of our members, their ideal next job challenge, with job openings and upcoming succession planning challenges at our clients. As ambitionOne is not-for-profit we will be able to make relevant donations to UNICEF from the profit coming from recruitment fees.”
