James 's testimonials
I've worked with James to fill some very specific and technical positions for a new globally distributed team. James was fantastic to work with listening to the specifics of our positions and picking up on the key things that should excite the right candidates. James and team have filled the headcount as well as looked at some additional positions with us. This team is on a short list of people I will reach out to for any future hiring needs. I'm happy with our hires and they are all setup for long term success, I couldn't ask for more than that.
I worked with James to find a new role based on my experience with Kubernetes. James reached out to me with an opportunity that was perfect for me. After a smooth initial chat, I quickly moved onto interviews and within a couple of weeks was offered a position. James was easy to work with, was not pushy in any way and I highly recommend him for your next search. I certainly will be reaching out to James if/when I start the hunt again.
I am very grateful to James from Understanding Recruitment for the excellent support I've received from him in securing a new position. James and I worked together over a few months in looking for a position that was an excellent fit for me. He presented me with companies looking for my exact skill set and provided me with very useful information about the companies I was interviewing with. He really guided me through the individual interview processes. He would check up on me before the interviews to make sure I was well-prepped and ready.
