Area Manager

I've been working with Stephen James Consulting for around 18 months, they are an exceptional recruitment firm, standing out from the rest for a number of reasons. “They presented me with regional opportunities that were hand-picked to match my skill set, knowledge and experience and for those reasons, I decided to work exclusively with them. I was recently hired me with a leading national provider initially on an interim basis which has now become a long-term arrangement. “I would recommend Stephen James Consulting to anyone seeking a new opportunity or to an organisation that is looking to work with a first-class recruiter.”


“What can I say. Exceptional support from day one and beyond. Stephen James Consulting were with me all the way, ensuring the whole process went smoothly, making it so easy and stress-free, providing me with tips for the interview, background info on the company, updated me on the progress of my application then, following my recruitment, they kept in touch to ensure all was well. Best of all, they found the perfect role for me. I couldn’t be happier in my new job and truly feel I owe that to the Stephen James Consulting team. A highly professional service delivered by genuinely nice people.”

Phil Lloyd, Operations Director

“Stephen James Consulting has work on behalf of Health Care Management Solutions (HCMS) for many years as their preferred recruiter. They have worked with me for some time assisting me to find Regional Managers, Relief Managers, Peripatetic Managers and Home Managers. “They have demonstrated a good understanding of my needs and only put CV's before me of people who meet that criteria. They get involved from receiving the brief, through to the interview stages and also following appointment to ensure the process is smooth and both parties are happy. I would certainly recommend Stephen James Consulting as an excellent recruiter and head hunter. They have a very good knowledge of the care industry and key stakeholders within our industry.”

Recruitment Manager

“We were fortunate and pleased to work Stephen James Consulting, the team responded promptly to our requirement for a senior care professional, they were able to source a number of high quality candidates for us. As a result, we successfully recruited the role”

Head of Recruitment

“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

“We have engaged the services of Stephen James Consulting for the last two years, we have found them to be professional in their approach but most importantly they have fulfilled our recruitment needs. “They have a robust recruitment process that results in candidates being of a good standard, they communicate well with the candidate but also with us as the customer during the recruitment and appointment process. “They follow up with the candidates that they have hired into the business, along with making that we were fully satisfied, I would recommend their service as we have had a continued level of service from them.”

Recruitment Manager

“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. I have no hesitation in recommending them to those who seek quality results.”

Regional Manager

I have worked with Stephen James Consulting in both the capacity of the recruiter and the candidate, and have always found them to be detailed, professional and willing to go the extra mile. They are concerned with every detail to ensure that they are either proposing the right candidates or the right positions and will strive to be confident that each and every hire will be a success. I have no hesitation in recommending Stephen James Consulting.
