About Us

Cameron James was founded in 2010 by 2 Directors, with the aim of providing a professional, knowledgeable and a personal recruitment service to both clients and candidates. The company is still privately owned and operates across the UK from 3 offices; Leeds (Head Office), London and Manchester . We are able to offer clients a national service, but still have the boutique feel; offering a fully bespoke package tailored to individual requirements.

We love what we do and it shows!

We are proud to be independent and we have built our reputation on the quality of the service we provide. We are truly passionate about recruitment and the positive impact it can have on people’s lives and businesses. Our success has been achieved due to the great team we have assembled.
