Our Culture


Our culture reflects our personalities: we’re a professional, dedicated, and hardworking team who know how to have fun at the same time. We strongly believe in rewarding our staff for the work they put in. Our incentives go much further than an amount on a payslip: we provide consistent opportunities for growth, once-in-a-lifetime trips around the world, regular team activities and nights out to top locations, as well as ample time away from the office to enjoy your hard-earned cash.

With a global reach, we have a diverse community with a strong mix of nationalities, languages around the world which 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, and regular office incentives and charity days (not forgetting the infamous Barrington Arms!)

We appreciate that experienced consultants seeking a career move have requirements they need to meet. Therefore, we offer a choice of a salary and benefits package that best suits your 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.


The Future of Life Sciences

Over the course of the pandemic, the importance of the Life Sciences industry was more visible than ever.

Our close alignment with this global market has meant we’ve never been busier, nor have we ever grown so fast. Since January 2020 we have opened 4 new global offices and grown into two new divisions. We’re working with the very best clients around the world to hire into their most crucial and challenging roles, enabling the progression of life-saving drug development processes.

Our consultants worked consistently through the pandemic and our market was one of few to grow month-on-month. As we, and the Life Sciences industry, continue to grow at an exponential rate, our need for exceptional talent has never been more important.

Are you someone who can be part of our exciting future?


Meritocratic Progression


We passionately believe in giving our people the right tools to do the best job, and are proud of our track-record of hiring consultants with no prior experience in recruitment. Consequently, the training and development we provide is second-to-none. Our training programme is ongoing: new consultants complete rigorous, tailored, and practical on-going training delivered by one of our two full-time Recruitment Training Managers. Our more experienced hires benefit from learning and development plans designed to ensure the step into leadership and management is as productive and successful as possible.

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.
