• I met James several years ago whilst settled in a previous role and over the last few years James has kept me up to date with positions that might interest me.

    When my position was made redundant in early 2012, James was very proactive in contacting me and searching out any relevant roles he could put me forward for. Within a matter of weeks James had found two excellent roles to put me forward for.

    I have found James to be a great asset over the recruitment period, keeping me up to date with developments, ensuring I was prepared for every opportunity, and giving me his insight and greater knowledge of what the employer was looking for, with the result that I could tailor my approach.
    The upshot to this is that I recently accepted the first of the two roles James found for me and I am delighted to be working for a company that is exactly as James described.

    A fantastic Recruitment Consultant, I would and have recommended James to anyone in need of a new role.

  • James specialises in Media recruitment so when I moved back to Scotland looking for a large, reputable media company to work for James managed to get me an interview at Radio Clyde and Trinity Mirror.

  • James has been recruiting for my business for the last 3 years with great success. He has in-depth industry knowledge of the media sales sector as well as a full understanding of our business.

I would highly recommend James as a recruiter.

    He is always available to speak and during interview process is extremely organised from pre interview to post interview stage. I can’t recommend a more professional and competent recruiter.
