“I have worked with Stephen James Consulting for around 18 months, and they are an exceptional recruiter that stands out from the rest for a number of reasons. “They presented me with regional roles that were hand-picked to match my skills, knowledge and experience and for those reasons, I decided to work exclusively with them. I was recently placed 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. SJC were with me all the way, ensuring the whole process of recruitment into my new role went smoothly. SJC made 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, kept in touch to ensure all was well. Best of all, they found the perfect job for me. I couldn’t be happier in my new role and truly feel I owe that to SJC. A highly professional service delivered by genuinely nice people.”

Phil Lloyd, Operations Director

“Stephen James Consulting has worked on behalf of Health Care Management Solutions (HCMS) for many years as their preferred recruiter. Duncan has worked with me for over a year assisting me to find Regional Managers. Relief Managers, Peripatetic Managers and Home Managers. “Duncan has demonstrated a good understanding of my needs and only puts CVs before me of people who meet that criteria. He gets very involved from receiving instruction, through 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 headhunter. They have a very good knowledge of our industry and key stakeholders within our industry.”

“We were fortunate and pleased to work Stephen James Consulting. Duncan responded promptly to our requirement for a senior care professional and was able to source a number of high calibre candidates for us. As a result, and with Duncan’s professionalism and knowledge of the care sector, we successfully filled the position.”

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 SJC 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, SJC are able to communicate those values and passion to the candidates that they present to us. SJC has helped us to find some key members of our management team who are instrumental in maintaining the high standards or 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 placements made, and this ensures that we as the customer are fully satisfied, their terms and conditions are favourable to the recruitment marketplace. 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. They not only have a high level of integrity as a recruiter but take time to fully understand requirements, only putting forward those candidates who are most likely to meet the needs of the role. Not only does SJC 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.”
