Alexander James Recruiting contacted me around 6 months ago after seeing my CV online. They had a job in mind that fit my profile but didn’t jump to conclusions. They listened carefully to what I wanted from my career and asked many questions going to great lengths to understand me. I liked and respected this. This caring approach built a strong bond between us with trust being at the centre of it. They are real professionals in this field. They have a positive, helpful attitude that makes you feel at ease, which when looking for that next career move can be so reassuring. His personality is another one of his many qualities. I’d recommend Alexander James Recruiting to find you that perfect role.

Alexander James Recruiting offer outstanding support and assistance in finding a new role. They are appointed by companies to recruit for them but they quite clearly want the best for the candidates too. They are very knowledgeable of the companies they are recruiting for and provide invaluable advice and guidance with regards to the interview process. Once I had been offered my new role they still remained in contact, ensuring I had received my offer / contract and was prepared for my first day. They have since been in touch asking how I’m getting on. I would highly recommend getting in touch with them for help finding your next new role.

Alexander James Recruiting has been a brilliant example of a recruiter. They took the time to understand my requirements, what I was willing to accept and what I wasn't willing to accept. My recruiter negotiated the best deal for me which was better than expected and has stayed in touch to ensure if I have any concerns that he can assist me. Their knowledge of the industry is unrivalled and I would not hesitate to recommend him in any instance.
