I have used another Rec2Rec in the past and had an awful experience. However Ash has been such a great Rec2Rec consultant and therefore has entirely changed my perception of Rec2Rec! He listened exactly to what I was looking for and he managed to get me into a great company which is a 100% in line with what I wanted. If you're looking for an opportunity not only will he listen but he will also advise you and give you a clear picture of the market trends!

Resourcer, Birmingham

I don't often write recommendations for people, however, the service that Ash went to was nothing short of amazing. He took his time, really struck up a chord to establish a relationship and understand what I was looking for, and went out and got me my perfect job. I would recommend him to anyone in the recruitment business looking for a position.

Digital Marketing Recruiter, Manchester

I worked with Ash for a short period of time when searching for a new recruitment role in Manchester. After seeing a well put together advert on LinkedIn, I gave him a call and within an hour (or so) I had two interviews the next day. Ash listened to my preferences, and throughout the process (all of 2 days) he provided a friendly yet very professional service.

Digital Recruiter, Manchester

Ash is by far the best Rec2Rec consultant I've ever dealt with. His industry and market knowledge is second to none, providing an honest and thorough assessment of your career to date and which companies to target. Ash is hard working, reliable and always provides an honest and open opinion. Consultative in his approach, I highly recommend Ash to any one looking to secure their next move within the recruitment industry.

Executive Search Consultant, Manchester

Ash is a great guy and excellent at what he does; he listens to your needs and matches them up to suitable opportunities. He's got great contacts at some really good companies and he helps you through each step of the interview process; providing a professional service throughout. He's a great guy and I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a new opportunity in recruitment.

Engagement Manager, Birmingham

Simply the best recruiter (Rec2Rec) I have ever met!! I was referred to Ash via one of my friends. From the initial conservation with Ash, he instantly understood my needs and made me feel confident that I was making the right choice by looking for a new challenge. Ash managed my expectations and with his endless list of contacts he landed me with my dream job within one month.

Finance Recruiter, Manchester

Ash was the only Rec2Rec that actually listened to my needs and offered a number of positions which exactly fitted my needs, most consultants see you as a fee but Ash took the time to get to know me, I would not hesitate in recommending Ash to any consultant who is looking for a new role.

Recruiter, Manchester

Ashley initially contacted me when I wasn’t on the market, he hypothetically asked me to describe my ideal role and then went away and made it happen. Ashley represents his brands well and I would recommend any recruiter looking to progress and fast track their career potential to get in touch.

Senior Consultant, Birmingham

Thank you again for your support throughout this process. I'm absolutely delighted with my offer and feel really excited for this next chapter in my life and my career! You've been brilliant and I can't thank you enough for the late-night calls/texts and being on hand with advice when I've needed it.

Awesome Rec to Rec!! Ash and his team enough, got me multiple opportunities in the Recruitment industry and I had no prior experience in recruitment. His ability to get my interviews but also make my priorities, his and not push me into any companies I didn't want to interview at! His professional and friendly manner led to me believing in Ash and as a team we got 4 offers and put me in the best position so that I could make the decision I wanted. He is a true grafter, you can call him anytime and nothing is too much. I owe Ash a lot!

I engaged Ashley James Consulting on difficult search with regards to locations, the service he provided throughout was fantastic securing me a number of excellent offers all in line with requirements. During the process Ash was highly professional, attentive always providing feedback and information in a timely fashion he is also a great bloke. I would thoroughly recommend using Ash to anyone looking for their next career move or to expand their business his knowledge and level of service are an invaluable resource.
