Recruitment Services

Disappointed or frustrated with recruitment services?

So were we!


That’s why we founded george james; we wanted to provide a consultative, not transactional, recruitment service. We listen to our customer’s needs and provide the best advice on how to fill a role, not just deliver a standard service. We only work on projects where we can really add value and complement our customer’s existing capabilities. After over 25 years we have hundreds of testimonials from loyal customers and are proud of our industry reputation.

Our Expertise

In today’s competitive market the need for talented and committed employees is greater than ever. Only by being proactive and searching for the individuals that best suit a role can you be assured of finding the best candidates. With more than 20 years’ experience george james has built an extensive network and knowledge of market dynamics in the science and technology sectors. This enables us to identify, attract, build rapport and trust with high quality candidates that meet your requirements, despite the challenges of a candidate led market.

When To Work With Us

Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit. Ut elit tellus, luctus nec ullamcorper mattis, pulvinar dapibus leo.
When there is a limited number of candidates with the skills and experience you require a strong shortlist can only be achieved by both covering the market fully and getting a high engagement rate. Only a proactive approach delivers this.

With the market conditions we face today, even if  your vacancy comes to the attention of a suitable candidate, there’s no guarantee they will apply. Using our proactive approach, we maximize the conversion from those being made aware of a vacancy, to those who apply.

We source and contact potential candidates directly to sell your opportunity rather than rely on an advertised/database contingency approach. Typically, contingency recruitment companies work on a model where they aim to successfully fill around 15% of their vacancies; whereas with our direct approach, we achieve a success rate of over 95%.

This occurs where there is a significant difference to the bottom line between hiring the best person who is found via a proactive approach and appointing an acceptable candidate attracted as a result of a reactive approach.

Sometimes new hires must remain confidential. For example when the new hire may necessitate change within an organisation, or you’re about to announce or enter a merger or acquisition. A direct approach to the market allows you to share information that you may not want in the public domain.

The recruitment partner chosen, and the methodology employed conveys a strong message to potential candidates. Top people with experience look for investment in the hiring process by the hiring company and can be put off applying if the way they become aware of the role does not meet with their expectations.

It is possible to take advantage of the opportunity to approach the market for candidates to obtain feedback on your company, including its’ market perceptions, market share and salaries compared to competitors.

Is the person you plan to hire the best candidate in the market, or just the best candidate who has applied? When you run a targeted recruitment project you are better able to make an informed decision about when and when not, to compromise.

If your own network has not engaged the right candidates and other approaches & companies haven’t delivered, we can help.
