    Recruitment Manager

  • “I have been working with Stephen James Consulting from the beginning of 2016 and from day one, they have been the ultimate professionals. I had been reluctant to engage with recruitment agents as it is so rare to find any that really try to understand you or your business. I have always believed that without this knowledge, it is impossible for a recruiter to recruit into your company. Not only have Stephen James Consulting made it their mission to understand what we stand for, but they have also dug deeper to really understand that our core values are what makes our company so special. I know that with this knowledge, they are able to communicate those values with passion to the candidates that they present to us. Stephen James Consulting have helped us to find some key members of our senior management team who are instrumental in maintaining the high standards of care that we provide. I can’t thank them enough for the help and support that they have provided for us. To us, they are most definitely an extension of our recruitment team.”

    Kathy Davies, Director of Operations

  • “I have worked with many recruiters over time, but Stephen James Consulting is now my first choice when we want to recruitment for care management roles. They not only have a high level of integrity as a recruiter firm but take time to fully understand our requirements, only putting forward those candidates who are most likely to meet the needs of the role. Not only does Stephen James Consulting deliver a professional and first class service, but they are also an absolute pleasure to work with.
