Contingent Recruitment

Our largest and most frequently used service, there is no upfront cost and therefore if no placement is made there is no fee due. Expect, just as we do at Barrington James, that our performance will be outstanding in the speed of assignment turnaround and the quality of communication you will receive as our client on both the process and the standard of the candidates presented to you.

In this short video, Business Development Director, Matt Shaw-Clark, presents our specialist areas and the methodologies used by us to source ‘hard to find’ candidates for our clients.

Contract & Interim Recruitment

A flexible, simple solution to hire experts on a temporary basis. Our clients are only charged for the hours worked by our contractors ensuring budgets can also be controlled. Our Contract Recruitment division all have unrivalled networks within freelance communities and are therefore able to deliver a shortlist of candidates within 24-48 hours. We pride ourselves in providing the best contractors available who are all presented pre-screened and reference checked.

In this short video, James Lewis, Executive Director, presents an introduction to Contract recruitment solutions at Barrington James.

Board & Executive Partners

This service is offered by our first rate, dedicated Executive Search team whose job is to keep a close eye on the scarce and niche candidate communities. Specialising in key, senior executive appointments and board level hires, they are experts in creating the right market strategy to fit your specific needs, no matter how specialist, sensitive or important.
