I've not know Daniel long, however, my first impressions were good. You don't usually get many Recruitment Consultants who promise something, then deliver. However, Daniel did. His rapport building is very good, and understood my circumstances and what I wanted to do. The turn around time for arranging interviews was very quick and the information provided was accurate. For anyone looking to receive service from the "Jerry Maquire" of Recruitment, call Daniel today.

Senior Mortgage and Protection Broker – Mortgage Brokerage – Candidate

Dan was professional and honest throughout the whole process. He took his time to fully understand the role I was looking for and the package it would require for me to leave my current role. Dan took his time to help give me the knowledge to succeed in the interview furthermore nothing was too much trouble for him and he took time out to speak to me outside of office hours.

Business Development Manager – Challenger Bank - Candidate

James is one of the best recruiters I've ever come across (and having worked in recruitment I have known quite a few). For me, as a candidate of his, he not only did what you would expect (yet don't always get), i.e kept in contact with me throughout, gave me a sound understanding of the role and company, and got a grasp of what I truly wanted, never complaining when I hounded him with calls for information! But he went way beyond that - the process for the role was very involved with a lot of prep work and although I knew he was spinning many plates at the time, he was so attentive and helpful and I never once felt like I was intruding on his time - he has a way of making you feel like you are his number one priority, which is a rarity in a recruitment consultant. He took the time to get to know the fine detail of both my wants and needs but also ensured I knew everything I needed to, and more about the company I was interviewing with. Not only did I get all of the above, but he truly, genuinely seemed delighted for me when I won the role, and that personal touch will go a long way.

Jennifer Bryan - Account Development Manager - Candidate

James placed me in my current Underwriting role 2 years ago after meeting with me to find out what I was looking for within a new role, my goals and expectations from a new employer. He placed me with Fluent Money which has suited me perfectly and has given me more than I was expecting. Huge thank you to him for listening to what I was looking for and finding something even better!

Tom Barrow - Underwriter - Candidate

As an agency, J2 are like a breath of fresh air. Daniel is a pleasure to work with and has really taken the time to get to know our business and what we are looking for, so we not only get candidates with the right skills and experience but also the right fit for our culture, which really helps. I could not recommend Daniel highly enough.

HR Business Partner – SME and Fintech Lender - Client

From the start of the process Daniel was on the ball and very helpful - he was looking for the right match for both myself and the company I was applying with - he guide me through their interview procedure and kept in contact throughout and he is the best consultant I have worked with - he is obviously a people person and an absolute pleasure to deal with

I couldn't recommend daniel highly enough. The way in which he conducted his work was very professional and I know from my experience he did a lot of work in the background helping me secure my ideal job. Very happy in my current role nearly a year on

Very professional and helpful. Found me a great position, very highly recommended.

Daniel was fantastic during my time searching for a new role. In fact, he was that good that my search ended after 3 days as he found me the perfect role! Couldn't ask for anyone better to help with the journey to new employment! Thanks again Dan!

Bridging Finance Underwriter – Bridging Lender - Candidate

Can't recommend Dan highly enough, he took the pressure out of a potentially stressful process. Should I ever need to look for another job, God forbid, I would not hesitate in making him my first point of contact.

Business Development Manager – P2P Lender - Candidate

I would strongly recommend Dan as I have twice had dealings with him and both times he has found suitable employment for me in a short space of time - he did not waste my time with unsuitable positions. I have found him professional and easy to deal with.

Mortgage Underwriter – Equity Release and Mortgage Brokerage - Candidate

I first met Daniel when he contacted me regarding a role and I have to say that this was probably the best experience I have encountered when dealing with a recruiter. Daniel is very knowledgeable in his field, at all times very professional while being personable and friendly. I would have no hesitation in recommending Daniel.

Senior Mortgage Broker – Mortgage Brokerage – Candidate

Hi Will, I hope your well. I am writing this email to you to express my gratitude and appreciation for what you have done. I decided early last week that a new career move would be right for me and applied for a role through J2. I am incredibly amazed at how quickly you were able to get me an interview with a "top 100" company. I have been offered a role and truly believe that this is somewhat down to yourself. I thank you for your help with amending my cv to make it stronger as well as the interview hints and tips. I hope to keep in touch with you and would like to sincerely thank you again for all your help

Mohammed Hussain

Dear Will, I just want to say a massive thank you for everything that you have done, in such a short space of time, to help me with finding a suitable job and being confident enough in myself to also get the job. I honestly think that you are great at what you do, not only were friendly, polite and helpful but you were professional, listened to what I wanted and worked with it rather than trying to find places and other potential positions that may not suit my personality and needs. You really are a credit to J2 Recruitment and I want you to pass this on to whoever you need to as a commendation on your work. If you don’t mind I will keep hold of your email and if I know of anyone, or have anyone who would like some help I will definitely be referring them to you and hope that you can help them the way that you've helped me

Danielle Madeley - Candidate

Daniel is a rare thing, a recruiter that actually does what he says he will do. He also listens and tries to match applicants to the role rather than slinging mud at the wall and hoping it will stick. I would certainly recommend him for your financial services recruitment needs

Jed Newton - Candidate

J2 were brilliant! They were professional and enthusiastic throughout the whole experience. Taya, in particular, provided me with loads of encouragement, support and advice and is extremely friendly. I would completely recommend this company to anyone.

Taya approached me with a few different job offers and I have never been so well prepared for a job interview. I would recommend J2 Recruitment to anyone and would like to say a massive thanks to Taya for helping me the way she did.

I wanted to get into legal administration and applied for a role I really wanted. Taya Hornsby from J2 recruitments was really helpful and positive! I was contacted quickly and was helped every step of the way, with some amazing interview prep! Within a week of applying I had an interview and got the job thanks to Taya.

Abigail Pritchard - Candidate


James was very good at listening to my needs and making the appropriate recommendations. He did what he said he would, never let me down and told me what he thought even if it didn't help him place me. Finally he went the extra mile with information that I needed. James is very reliable and I'd choose him to work with

Advancing or accelerating your career depends on making the right strategic moves at the right time. Daniel contacted me and was fundamental in getting me the right opportunity with a prestigious company. Polite and never pushy. I would strongly recommend his services.

Brendon Thomas DipMap DipFA BA(Hons) - Client

James understood our recruitment requirements perfectly, with a 100% success rate on the candidates put forward to us. Both of the people that have come from Search have been of a very high calibre and a perfect fit for our business culture. I am sure that if James had been involved in the recruitment at an earlier stage then we would have employed more people from Search. Dealing with James I have found him to be a pleasure to deal with, professional yet charismatic and a joy to speak to. He has qualified my requirements in detail and briefed the candidates fully before their interviews and assessment days. I will be making sure that Search are involved in our future growth plans

Steve Lovesey - Regional Manager, Lex Autolease - Client

Dear Will, I am so grateful to you for all your kind help and commitment in my job search, I have very much appreciated your understanding of my requirements and your persistence on my behalf. You helped to make the disheartening experience of job seeking into a more personal and positive one and, needless to say, I shall recommend you to anyone I know who would benefit from your excellent assistance. Once again thank you so much

Vanessa - Client

James is an outgoing and friendly consultant who strives to achieve a positive outcome from every interaction. Assertive, courteous and amiable. James listens to the specific needs of an individual to generate the right candidate and rather than sending a CV and hoping for the best; he actually goes the extra mile to look at whether or not the candidate fits the employer and vice versa. I use James for many recruitment campaigns and I will almost certainly use him again. Highly recommended.

Aaron Noone – Operations Director, Loan.co.uk - Client

From a business point of view, James has an excellent understanding of our roles and requirements and seems to get to know his candidates really well in order to equally understand their needs. James has filled more roles with us than any other agency and the candidates he puts forward are a great fit, not just for the role itself but for the culture of our company. On a more personal note, the main reason I enjoy working with James is his personality. Everything he does is with a positive upbeat attitude whilst maintaining absolute professionalism.

Rachael Dunne – Recruitment Coordinator at Together Money Group - Client

Although there are many recruitment companies and even more recruitment consultants James stands out from the rest. It has been a pleasure dealing with James throughout the process as he was there every step of the way. James in my own opinion goes the extra mile as he not only keeps you informed throughout the process but also tries to get to know the individual which allows him to offer constructive advice which can make all the difference. He made it his priority to understand the role that he was putting me forward for in great depth and really assisted me in my interview preparation. I would have no hesitation in recommending James to any of my colleagues in the future should the need arise. Thanks again James

Emma Ratcliffe – Business Development Manager at Large Loan Brokerage - Client

James has provided us with the best service I’ve received from a recruitment agency for many, many years. Of the 9 candidates we’ve interviewed so far, we’ve taken on 8 – a phenomenal strike rate. James listened to what we wanted and provided only those candidates who met our criteria – not something I’ve been used to in dealing with recruitment agencies. I would strongly recommend using him
