James Simpson


Head of
& Support


I joined Austin Fraser in October, 2007 as the first official employee. Like everybody else here, I joined as a trainee recruitment consultant and, over the course of the last eight years I’ve been able to see the company grow massively in a very short time. I now manage the Networks, Infrastructure and Support team which consists of more than ten highly specialist consultants.

Our team focuses on placing contract specialists within the following areas:
– Helpdesk, Desktop & Server Engineers
– Infrastructure Project Consultants
– System Administrators
– DevOps
– Network Engineers – Data, Voice and Security
– Unified Communications
– Technical Project Managers
– Project Managers
– Business Analysts

We may be young, but we have already been recognised with some prestigious industry awards. These include Virgin Fast Track 2011/2012, Sunday Times Best Companies 2013 (7th), 2014 (13th), 2015 (9th), along with Investors in People Gold accreditation.
