When I was contacted by Steve from JGA I didn't have a job so when I was offered a 12 month contract I thought why not, I can still apply for jobs but I didn't even try. Steve and Ros ensured I was looked after well and paid on time. This was all done in a friendly but professional manner. When the 12 months were over I was quite sorry to leave to go to my permanent job. No regrets whatsoever! Thanks to you both. Sue Wilkinson Sheffieldread more

James Gray are one of the best recruitment agencies I have ever worked with. I've had the experience of working two consultants there, Steve Yardley and Paul Dargarvel. Both consultants were able to understand my capabilities and only send me role which suited my development. You always feel like they are really looking out for your best interest instead of looking at you with pound signs in their eyes. I wish I could recommend James Gray and these consultants more.read more

A really positive experience with the team at JGA. When I had some doubts about accepting the role there was no hard pressure sale to get me to accept to ensure their commission. They were really thoughtful and considerate and were more concerned that I took a job that I was likely to stay in rather then take the job and then leave later. The good news is I did take the job and I'm very happy that I did.read more

I couldn't recommend JGA enough. Having worked for a professional services firm I received plenty of calls, e-mails and LinkedIn messages from recruiters who were trying to encourage me to move to an equivalent firm in an equivalent role. I regularly felt that they were just trying to move me to earn commission, rather than listening to the reasons why I wanted to move or the type of role I was looking for. I worked with Nick Day and Steve Yardley at JGA and felt that firstly they understood what it was I did at my previous employer and secondly what it was I was looking for in terms of next steps. I also understand that they went the extra mile with my new employer to set up an interview as I wasn't a natural fit for the role, which is greatly appreciated.read more

I am very happy to have worked with Matthew to secure my new position. He was honest, polite and proactive from receiving my application up until he called me with an offer. He called me before and after each interview and showed real interest and concern in my progress with the application. He was very positive and easy to talk, he even said I could call him at the weekend should I have any issues before starting my job. I definitely recommend him and the JGA team. Thank you!!

I would like to send my gratitude to Matthew for his support in finding the perfect job. Thanks to him I found a job in Payroll even though I had no experience (just finished a Sage 50 course 2 weeks back). Even after I got the job he called me to ask how am I doing and sent me a Congratulation Basket at my work place (It was very thoughtful and nice of him). If I intend to change jobs in the future, I will definitely call JBA Recruitment. Thank you for all your help!read more
