"James helped me find a good, challenging role with a new London based startup. Throughout the whole process, he was professional, thorough and courteous. The very traits that are exactly what you need when considering a change of employer. I have no hesitation recommending James to other potential candidates like myself."
ANDY SHARP / GENERAL MANAGER / NEXEN CNOOC
"James and I worked together during a recent job search. I worked with James because he has a strong network of connections in highly attractive companies in the E&P sector, and is a very collaborative recruiter who is well-respected by employers and job candidates. He came highly recommended from a colleague, for whom he had found a very senior job with a large independent.
James listened carefully during our initial discussions to my job criteria and professional/personal desires, and he delivered a well-considered short list of opportunities that matched my expectations exceedingly well, including several "bespoke" positions I would not have been exposed to otherwise. He did not "force" any company introductions on me, nor did he hard-sell any positions he was shopping.
Based on our discussions, he tailored my introductions to a carefully selected sub-set of companies from his short list, with excellent effectiveness and strong results. One introduction eventuated in an excellent offer with an extremely exciting exploration company based in London.
James worked exceedingly hard on my behalf, as well as on the behalf of the company involved. He was fair and honest to both parties, and was a consummate professional in all regards. He was always available for a phone call, and very fast on responsive to emails. His communication was top-tier.
I recommend James highly, and have done so on a personal basis to close colleagues who have asked for advice on headhunters with whom to work. He has the right connections and the right attitude - just the sort of person a job candidate wants to work with.
I will be happy to work with James in the future, when I am resourcing jobs in my own company."

"Mr. Ellis did an excellent job in finding me a new position that met all the criteria that I was looking for. I had been open to the idea of moving to a new position for some time, but had not found the exact opportunity that I was looking for. Mr. Ellis worked with me to find a new position with a lots of technical challenges and opportunity for growth, in a part of the world that I had always wanted to work. I highly recommend him for job placement in the geoscience field."
