Whilst working with James Ray Recruitment I have been extremely impressed with the overall service we have experienced since the initial meeting with Rachel and her team. Due to expansion we required support with multiple roles throughout the business. Within 48 hours we received multiple profiles across all areas we have requested with a detailed and professional feedback on each person. Communication with Rachel in arranging interviews was excellent and was quick to resolve any issues we had. Having now successfully appointed through James Ray Recruitment, I am looking forward to a long-lasting working relationship together.

Permanent Recruitment

We have an extensive pool of talented job seekers looking for the right opportunity. And while your requirements might be very specific, we are able to shortlist only those candidates that are fully qualified for the job. What’s more, we manage the entire process for you: from screening and profiling to shortlisting the right candidates and benchmarking the correct salary. We take care of everything, including any administrative hurdles.

Whether it’s a strategic hire or a supplement to your growth strategy, we partner with you to thoroughly understand your business and the traits of the perfect candidate.

We can offer several options for recruiting a permanent member of staff:

Contingency Search

You provide us with your criteria and we shortlist potential candidates. A fee is only paid if you find the right fit.

Retained Search

We work with you under a retainer whereby you pay a fixed amount for us to source a candidate for you. In return for this commitment we invest significant resources into the search: identifying, contacting and shortlisting candidates. A final part of the fee is paid once the candidate accepts the role.


You can choose to outsource your full recruitment process to us. We become an extension of your company getting to know your values and culture to source the right candidates. Service fees apply.
