My career has focused on international recruitment. The most important element of any assignment is the briefing with the hiring manager. If you get this right you can advise appropriately, set expectations and set-up the entire recruitment process for success. I will always evaluate an assignment in-depth before taking it on and (rarely) turn it down if I feel it is outside my field of expertise. As an indication, in a typical year my assignments will be located: 40% UK 40% EMEA 12% Asia 8 % Americas

I have worked with James for many years. He got to know and understand our company immediately which was invaluable when delivering assignments. His engagement with the business is highly professional and he focuses on getting a thorough brief every time.
Delivery has always been efficient, on-time and on-budget.
Charging for time only, he provides an important tool for direct hiring and the avoidance of agency or search firm usage.
