Permanent Recruitment Explained

We're primarily a permanent recruitment specialist meaning we focus on job opportunities that involve placing individuals with organisations in a full time, permanent role. We work with companies to assist in creating job descriptions, job adverts and provide general industry and job specific advice before sourcing candidates through various means. We pre-screen candidates before sending CV's and facilitate the interview process by arranging and managing the interviews. If we're successful in placing a candidate with a company we charge a pre agreed fee based on a percentage of the agreed salary offered by the company to the candidate. If you're a company who has hired through us, you will also have an agreed rebate in place over a certain period which will provide a partial refund should the placement not work out.

For certain, specific recruitment projects we may recommend a retained option. This involves a partial, upfront payment in order to begin the search and a final payment upon placement of a candidate.  

To find out more about our fee and rebate structure please get in touch by emailing jobs@alexanderjamesrecruiting.co.uk and one of our team will be in touch or click 'contact us' below.

Companies we work with

What our customers say


I left my previous role and within a few days a consultant at Alexander James Recruiting had found that I was looking for work on LinkedIn and contacted me. They had several vacancies to offer and after sending my CV they had me an interview within hours. They kept me well informed of progress and landed a second interview and consequently got a start date . They were a pleasure to deal with and managed the whole process until my start date by keeping in touch regarding my employment.

After many years selling HGV's I was looking for a change. After being approached by Alexander James Reruiting they found me the ideal opportunity to utilise my current skill set and experience whilst taking on a completely new challenge with a different type of product. I found the company to be attentive and personable throughout the process and would have no hesitation in recommending them.

Area Sales Manager - Hiab


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.
