Accounting and Finance (Support)

Like many other recruiters, James stumbled into the recruitment industry in 2010. Starting off in a hybrid desk (permanent, contract and temporary) in Accounting & Finance support with Hudson, James honed his recruitment skills. Despite this desk being viewed as a high volume, transactional area, James conducted recruitment practices focusing on providing top level service and care. This led to significant revenue growth and winning a number of national accolade.

Subsequently, James joined his mentor in Talent2 to start up a new desk – Sales and Marketing. It is in this position that James worked on a number of senior level appointments, examples such as the Marketing Manager – Westpac, Brand Manager – Coopers and Sales Executive – Australia Post. Always keen on learning, James joined a boutique recruitment agency, WilsonRice to operate with a high level of autonomy and challenge himself in a different type of environment.

After a short stint in Sage as a HR/Payroll Software Business Development Manager, James decided that recruitment remains his passion and took on the opportunity to join Erin in Powerstaff Consulting.

James specializes in recruiting in the above disciplines in Temporary, Contract and Permanent.

James also is tasked as Director not only to perform recruitment consultation to his clients but also to identify and attract high callibre Recruitment Consultants to join the Powerstaff brand.
