“Wendy [Alexander James] was hugely helpful and responsive – we talked about what I was looking for and she was determined to find me the role I wanted. She was always responsive, and seemed just as invested in my job search as I was.”

I was very happy with the service from AlexJames. I felt they really listened to what I was looking for and matched me to a job that suited my needs and wants perfectly. The whole process, from first speaking to them to getting my job was managed seamlessly, they were easy to get hold of at the right times and kept me very well informed of the process. All round a very impressive service – which can not be said of every recruitment agency.

It was a great pleasure working with you too and, as you might imagine, I’m pleased at the way in turned out. And, for the record, you are one of the very rare recruitment specialists whose briefings and guidance about a role turn out to be reliable/accurate when I actually start the job!

Wendy was a wonderful point of contact for me when starting out my career. She really cared about what I was interested in and my priorities, and was simultaneously speedy and thoughtful – I didn’t feel rushed into a decision, but felt fully supported along the way. Absolutely love the job I’m now in, and I think it says a lot that the firm also have nothing but positive things to say about her!

Wendy from Alexander James contacted me after uploading my CV online at the outset of my job hunt. As I myself was unclear of my motivations she took the time to get to know me not just as a viable PR candidate but as a recent graduate confused by the insurmountable task of job hunting.
Wendy quickly set up interviews with firms suited to my personal parameters, ensuring I was sufficiently prepped and confident for each one. As my search lengthened in time Wendy was careful in ensuring I was choosing interviews for the right reasons, unlike other recruitment firms who can coax you into wasting time. I felt Wendy had my best interests at heart and I was comfortable in chatting about my thought processes throughout my search, knowing she’d give the right advice over bias advice.
I’m starting my role as a JAE in a market leading firm and can confidently say I’m excited and happy to be joining the team.

I had what can only be described as a dream experience with Wendy. We initially spoke on Tuesday, she understood what I was looking for straight away and put forward the perfect role. Wednesday she secured an interview for me. Thursday the interview took place – and I was offered it the same day. Throughout the process Wendy was friendly, always made an effort to call rather than email and even checked in how handing in my notice went! A short and sweet turnaround. I would recommend Wendy to anyone looking for their next role in PR.
