Culture and Environment

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

Our global reach means we are a diverse community, with a strong mix of nationalities, languages, and personalities.

We are delighted to announce that, for the third year in a row, Barrington James has placed in the Sunday Times ‘Top 100 Best Small Companies To Work For’. Finishing 31st in 2017, 11th in 2018, and a brilliant 5th in 2019, it is a true testament to the satisfaction of our employees, and an achievement we’re all extremely proud of.

Reward Structure

Dan Barrington’s philosophy is ‘We Invest In Our People’.

The company is highly renowned for its best-in-class rewards, including our shareholder scheme (41% of the company is owned by employees), uncapped commission with no threshold plus unique bonus structures, and unparalleled all-expenses-paid trips abroad. We also offer monthly 1pm finishes on Fridays for target-hitting consultants, as well as regular office incentives and charity days (and of course, The Barrington Arms!)

A huge achievement for the company is being recognised by The Sunday Times as a BEST COMPANY TO WORK FOR three years in a row. We have moved from 31st place in 2017 to a brilliant 5th place in 2019, achieving consistently high scores for ‘Employee Engagement’, reflecting how our people value our place of work as much as we value them.

Every consultant in the company who has been here over two years is earning six figures, and every member of staff is eligible for rewards, including our Annual High Rollers trip (this year to Vegas!)

Opportunities not boundaries

Barrington James is a fast growing and developing global business. We are always on the lookout for exceptional people. Are you, potentially, the person who can drive the business to the next level? If so, the rewards will be limited only by your ambition and performance.

We offer uncapped commission, meaning that you have the opportunity to earn an UNLIMITED amount (yes, it's possible!). We also offer unique travel opportunities to individuals that have little to no experience, meaning that we are able to cater for all.

Barrington James is happy to consider candidates for various levels into the company, from recent graduates, to experienced consultants.

Training and Development

At Barrington James we believe passionately in giving our people the right tools to do the best job. Consequently, our training and development programmes are second to none. New consultants complete a rigorous and practical on-going programme, that gives them a thorough, practical grounding in all aspects of the recruitment process, and how Barrington James operates.

The most important learning of course comes from the structured experience you will get from the job, and rubbing shoulders with some of the best operators in the industry.

All performance at Barrington James is formally monitored, reviewed, and rewarded 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. We are proud of the rapid promotions achieved by some of our high fliers. Just read some of the brief biographies on this website.
