James is a company director and a member of the board at Macildowie. He has been with the company since 1997 and was instrumental in the opening of the Leicester office in 2000. He launched the Procurement and Supply Chain division in 2009 and more recently, the new Sales and Marketing division of the business.
His role now is very customer focused and he works to develop the business in areas including:
new client and candidate attraction,
marketing with particular emphasis on Social Media Strategy,
and the training and development of Macildowie’s own people.
James has been particularly active over the past few years developing Macildowie's Linkedin strategy which looks at actually helping customers to utilise the tool to benefit their own direct hire recruitment models.
James also still actively recruits for a select few customers who have remained loyal to him over the years.
"I attended the LinkedIn workshop ran by James, which was a great use of a couple of hours in order to learn how to optimise my LinkedIn profile. I had previously attended a good course at Penna, this course with James reinforced, enhanced and built on what I had learnt previously.”
“James provides useful and insightful advice for executives looking to enhance their networking and job search capabilities. He is a straightforward and very enthusiastic person with an excellent ability to get his training across in a thoroughly motivational way.”
“James, from our first meeting was the consumate professional. His help and input was so influential in me finding not just a job but 'the' job. He is an outstanding communicator and with his warm and affable nature made me feel really comfortable in his presence. I cannot praise him and his team highly enough.”
