Our Culture


The culture at BJ is unlike no other. We are professional, dedicated, and hardworking – but we have fun at the same time, and believe in rewarding our staff for the work they put in.

So it is little surprise that we are also an award winning company to work for having featured in the Sunday Times ‘Top 100 Best Small Companies To Work For’ in 2017, 2018 and 2019.  Something that we believe is a true testament to the satisfaction of our employees and an achievement we’re extremely proud of.

With a global reach, we have a diverse community, with a strong mix of nationalities, languages, and personalities, something that contributes to making Barrington James exactly who we are.



We Invest In Our People


We are widely renowned for our best-in-class rewards, such as our shareholder scheme (50% of the company is in the hands of our employees), unparalleled all-expenses-paid trips abroad, as well as regular office incentives and charity days (not forgetting the infamous, Barrington Arms!)

In addition to this, every Consultant that joins Barrington James has the choice of a salary and benefits package that best suits their lifestyle. Add in uncapped commission with no threshold plus opportunities to earn additional bonuses it comes as no surprise that our staff are some of the best earners in the market.


Be Part Of Our Future


As a fast growing and developing global business, we are always on the lookout for exceptional people. With aggressive growth plans, we are looking to not only attract the best staff but also retain our current superstars.

Are you someone who can be part of our exciting future and drive the business to the next level?

If so, the rewards will be limited only by your ambition and performance.



Meritocratic Progression


We believe passionately in giving our people the right tools to do the best job. Consequently, the training and development we provide is second to none. Not just for new consultants, who complete rigorous and practical on-going training, we have continuous learning and development plans for experienced recruiters and for those stepping into management and leadership positions.

However, we do believe in monitoring, reviewing and rewarding your progress using a tailored balanced scorecard system. This structured approach means that career development is not haphazard. There is a genuine ladder of achievement for all employees and we are proud of the rapid promotions achieved by some of our home grown leaders.
