As the directors of James Associates, we have a wealth of diverse experience covering all aspects of the recruitment process. Having met in the early 90s at a major banking and insurance consultancy in the City, we started James Associates in the mid 90s with a view to offering a consultative service to our clients.

We have thrived on an honest and open approach and stay in regular contact with our clients. We feel there is more to recruitment than matching arbitrary vacancy parameters, and make it our goal to effectively understand requirements, issues and environment to manage expectations accordingly. Many clients return to us time and time again, not only to fill vacancies, but also for some advice on recruitment issues and market conditions.

We set ourselves apart by maintaining close relationships and not viewing the recruitment process as just a numbers game but by working behind the scenes to find candidates suitable roles. We source our candidates by a variety of means including personal recommendation, networking, targeted approaches and maintaining long-term relationships as well as more traditional advertising methods.
