Working with James

​The very fact that I'm writing a recommendation for James, a recruiter in the IT industry - is testament to the fact that he's a bit special. In a world where most IT and web development recruitment consultants are considered less than wonderful, James and his team stand out for consistently delivering great results to our business and being one of very few recruiters that we would work with time and time again. He's a very special guy and has helped to build a great team at Austin Fraser - I'd highly recommend him to anyone, especially those who may be sceptical of IT and web development recruiters previously.


Venntro Media Group

​I have no hesitation in recommending James. In stark contrast to the overwhelming majority of other recruiters, James actually took the time to get to know me as an individual candidate, only approaching me with roles that would be suitable. He was also very easy to communicate with, both on a personal level and a technical one. I would be delighted to work with him again in the future and would definitely recommend him to others.

​James is a genuine pleasure to work with, he takes pride in developing both candidate and client relationships whilst also setting high expectations for his team. James will not compromise on delivery and is seen by many of his clients as an integral partner to their recruitment function. I would have no hesitation in recommending James to prospective clients, or to potential candidates who are looking for an honest and efficient approach.

Commercial and Legal Director

Austin Fraser

​In my now almost 10 years of work experience in the field of consulting and sales, he is one of the most valued people I have ever worked with. I have seen him achieve the highest successes in our company. This was only possible because he is passionate, conscientious and 100% reliable in what he does. James doesn’t talk much, he rather delivers. When you need help James is always there for you, takes his time and he is never too busy to support his team and colleagues. James is one of the most professional, knowledgeable and friendly people in his field, a mixture that is hard to find in this business.
