Tech recruiter for 15 years. Veteran of two tech and one service startup. Co-Founder of MindTheProduct - global events for tech Product Managers
15 years in tech recruitment. I've seen it done fast & slow, expensive & cheap.... right & WRONG. If a good hire costs you $20k, a bad one will cost you $60k. Can you afford not to talk?
James was the Engagement Manager at Albany on the CPW Account - Before James took over it was difficult to fully understand the job specs and we did not have direct line manager contact - having worked our side of the fence in the past James changed the way things were done enabling contact, accurate and honest feedback and information were constantly available - Effectively James changed the account from difficult to serve to being a pleasure to work on. I hope to work with James again in the future.
“I have found James to be professional, proactive and very knowledgeable in the highly variable and shifting world of 'recruitment'. Jame's combination of honesty, hard work and ambition make him, and his company, a reliable and indispensable service to the IT professional. I have no hesitation in recommending James and would happily provide additional positive feedback, if requested.”
James and I worked at CapGemini together, myself on permanent resourcing while James was the Project Manager for the contract piece. He had a good relationship with his client group and gained their respect for the governance work he put in place and the control of the hiring processes. I’d recommend James as a commercially savvy business person.
James understands what a business looks for when making buying decisions and came armed with all the relevant data from the word go, allowing the relevant stakeholders to make an informed and assured decision quickly. This insight is surprisingly rare, very refreshing and is the reason James has credibility and his clients have confidence.
James really helped me out with marketing for Twurly (a new product I am launching).
He immediately understood the value of it and did an excellent job of selling the benefits to users.
His marketing copy will be very useful as the site grows.
He also helped spread the word thereby increasing user numbers.
I worked with James for two years whilst we were both on the Capgemini account. James was a pleasure to work with who brought a very dedicated attitude and always a pleasure to work with. I have no hesitation in recommending James.
James is a hard-working individual who will respond swiftly to demands and can be relied on to get the job done.
James was hardworking, organised, professional and approachable both in his direct role and in managing our Client / Supplier relationship.
James is a connector of people who have good ideas, which is what Nexmo was looking for. He follows through on what he says, is reasonable, humble and a pleasure to be around. Recommended!
We hired James to undertake a project that would see us completely revamp our events website. Being hosted on Wordpress.com was very limiting and costing us revenue. James mapped out exactly what we could do once we migrated over to a .org site and how we could do it.
The is ready to go live and it has opened up several new revenue streams, improved the delegate journey and allowed us to showcase our events as they should be.
James has helped our fledgling organisation step up its commercial aspects in a huge way. From helping us design new revenue streams to finding, engaging and delivering new clients he has proven to be as effective as he is personable. Of particular note is of course his deep expertise in the recruiting space where we are now building a successful suite of products under his guidance. We will continue to work with him for a long time and recommend him whole-heartedly.
