Recruitment Consultant

About James

I specialise in cyber security - more specifically, security, analysis and intelligence. This sector is vast and is growing at a very fast rate due to unprecedented demand from companies for security. The news frequently reports instances of companies being hacked and held for ransom, or personal data being stolen. With so much of our day-to-day lives controlled by hackable devices, and with driverless cars on the horizon, I don’t see this area slowing down any time soon.

The SIEM (Security Information Event Management) technologies I focus on include Splunk, LogRhythm, Huntsman, QRadar, Arcsight, Logpoint and McAfee, to name a few of the major tools.

I have been in recruitment for over three years, as a 360 recruiter. I have been perm-focused and am now working on contract roles too. I have always worked in engineering & IT recruitment, starting off within renewable and sustainable energy. I’ve since worked in fire and security, water treatment and manufacturing. I enjoy the friendly competition and helping people make the big decision to change their career or job. I also enjoy helping companies fill difficult vacancies.

Three words that describe my approach

Professional, friendly and approachable.

Something about me

I am a qualified personal trainer and would love to compete in the future! The only downside is my love of crisps and pizza!
