Our Sectors

Our main areas of focus are for Sales & Engineering based positions for the below:

  • Material Handling
  • Commercial Vehicles
  • Construction (Plant/Cranes/Powered Access)
  • Waste Management
  • Racking & Storage
  • Automation & Robotics

Working within these sectors enables an element of crossover, assisting both clients and candidates in different ways. It gives the client the option of looking inside their immediate industry whilst looking at other sub sectors of their industry and outside their industry for candidates with highly applicable skills and experience. It also gives the candidate the opportunity to really assess their next career move and decide whether they want to continue in their present sector, or instead in an entirely different industry but an industry where their experience is related and sought after. Whether you're a professional looking for your next career move or a client seeking top talent, we certainly believe we can help.

Used various recruitment companies over the years, and I'm not sure they manage it, but Alexander James Recruiting always seems to find candidates who are right for us! I would strongly advise that you give them an opportunity when you next need to recruit someone.

Steve Moody

Sales Director - GT Access


Alex has been a pleasure to work with. As a recruiter he has maintained a highly professional demeanor and was always very friendly, and informative! Alex was quick to understand the kind of role I was looking for, recognising my strengths and putting me forward for exactly the right job. He was always there to help throughout the process. I could not recommend Alex more highly. After several different stages of the interview process I was lucky to be successful in the position. Thanks again Alex I can’t thank you enough!

I have worked and known Alex for some time now. He is affable, friendly, charming and seems to genuinely care about his candidates. He is also the epitome of professionalism and very knowledgable within his sector. He introduced me into an absolute dream of a job 9 months ago which has just seen me take on a promotion. So a massive thank you to Alex and I would recommend him to anyone.
