What you want to know

James Gray Recruitment are corporate members of APSCo, and all our staff are fully trained and updated on relevant legislation.

We’re ahead of the technology game too, with a market leading video interviewing platform available for our candidates and clients. Video interviewing can give you an edge over your competition by removing travel barriers, and speed up the whole process.

We were founded in March 2006 by owner Richard Samuels. Richard wanted to move away from the numbers led recruitment process with its one size fits all approach, and towards a recruitment firm that was all about personal relationships.

As the recruitment industry has evolved and employers are building up their own internal recruitment functions, the need for specialist recruiters rather than generalists has been clear. As a result, we have true discipline experts who have extensive networks in one core function.

By recruiting for the same role type and networking in the same talent pool, our recruiters get known for their expertise and are able to offer our candidates the best opportunities in the market at all times.
