We are a high growth business requiring candidates of the very highest calibre  Stephen James Consulting came very highly recommended and didnt disappoint I was extremely impressed with their ability to quickly grasp not only our operating model but also our idiosyncratic culture They rapidly identified not only the knowledge skills and experience needed but possibly even more importantly the cultural fit  As a result the candidate pool was of high quality Equally commendable was the communication we received both pre and post interview Certainly Ive used a couple of other agencies recently and their standard of client and candidate briefing was not even close As I say Stephen James Consulting was recommended to me and Id have no hesitation in recommending him likewise Geoff

Working with Stephen James Consulting over the past few months can only be described as refreshing. Rather than send us every CV they have on their database, they matched the candidates against the role profile, and in every case have put forward credible candidates. Without Stephen James Consulting's assistance, our recruitment over the past 12 months would not be finished. Thank you.

We are a high growth business requiring candidates of the very highest calibre. Stephen James Consulting came very highly recommended and didn't disappoint.

I was extremely impressed with their ability to quickly grasp not only our operating model, but also our idiosyncratic culture. they rapidly identified not only the knowledge, skills and experience needed, but (possibly even more importantly) the cultural fit. As a result the candidate pool was of high quality.

Equally commendable was their communication we received both pre and post interview. Certainly I've used a couple of other agencies recently and their standard of client and candidate briefing was not even close.

As I say, Stephen James Consulting were recommended to me and I'd have no hesitation in recommending him likewise.

Thanks again for the work you put in on the Opportunity. As a candidate, working with Stephen James Consulting has been a breath of fresh air. My first impression through the screening/consultation process, was one of professionalism and a genuine interest and understanding of my ambitions and goals. Duncan and Vanessa worked extremely quickly to identify an opportunity and kept me informed throughout the process, enabling me to prepare effectively during the interview stage. Significantly, they have provided very honest feedback and pragmatic advice, which wasn't focussed around their "placement fee" but my requirements. In short some of the best in the business.   Kind Regards, Alex

When my employer took the decision to implement a restructure which left my role in uncertainty, Stephen James Consulting was the first place I called to help me seek new career opportunities.  Duncan is so personable, easy to work with and has a great sense of humour, whilst remaining professional at all times. Stephen James Consulting showed compassion and understanding to my situation and within a matter of hours they presented me with two new job specifications that matched my skill base and knowledge perfectly. Stephen James Consulting are very driven and always had my best interests at heart and would never put me forward for a position if they didn't believe in your ability to succeed.  A huge thanks to Stephen James Consulting for supporting me over the last few months and for securing my new position; I couldn't have done it without them.  I would not hesitate in recommending Stephen James Consulting.

My dealings with Stephen James Consulting are all positive!  They are thorough and followed all correspondence up promptly.  If I am ever in the market to move on it will be Stephen James Consulting I call on to assist me.
