In an incredibly busy market, James really stands out as one of the best Consultants I've had the pleasure of meeting and working with. Over the past 3 years, he's secured me a number of interviews, and two roles. From day one, James was incredibly thorough, and made sure he not only understood the sort of role I was seeking, but also my career aspirations, and how we could work together long-term to achieve them. He is also meticulous in cross-referencing roles with my requirements, meaning every role he's represented me on has been perfect for me!Robb Shingles
James made me change all the impression about recruiters and the way recruitment agencies work! He supported me through a recruitment process a few years ago (I've got the job!) and I contacted James again in 2019 as I wanted to progress with my career (and relocate) because I knew he would be the right recruiter to speak with – the best thing I have ever done. In a blink of an eye, I was going to the interview with the job I really wanted and here I am, working for them! I think that Distinct is lucky to have James on board and if you are a Marketer and want to land the right job, he is the guy to call.Mel Nader
I’ve had the pleasure of working with the Distinct Recruitment team this year to develop a live consultancy project for our final year Marketing and Marketing & Management students at Nottingham Trent University. James Calder and James Hales, in particular, have been brilliant throughout this process. Working closely on the project and aligning it to the needs of both Distinct and NTU, we now have an excellent assessment for our students and will see them flourish, I’m sure, over the coming weeks. This has been a thoroughly enjoyable partnership and I look forward to working with them again in the New Year. I would highly recommend Distinct Recruitment to any prospective candidates and clients.Adam Smith
James is a very intelligent recruiter from my experience, his professionalism and ability to act in the interests of the client and candidate is first class. His experience needs not be questioned for Marketing fits - I am very happy to keep James as a colleague and recommend him on to others.Martin Clunn MCIM
In 2017 I found myself redundant and job hunting for the first time in 18 years, James was the first recruiter I approached, having been recommended to me. James was outstanding in understanding what I was looking for, feedback guidance and advice on CV and providing valuable insight to companies interviewing with. Through James quickly found an interim role that matched my skills and my wish list - which then turned into permanent role. I Would highly recommend James.Kathryn Hague
James is one of the best recruiters I've had the pleasure of dealing with. You really feel like your hunt for the ideal job is important to him and you're not just a number on a spreadsheet. He spent time getting to know me, my experience and what I was after from a role but it wasn’t just the job that was important to me so he also spent time matching me to companies that sat well with my personality and requirements. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend James and will also go back to him for future roles!Amy Robinson
As soon as I met with James I was immediately put at ease because like all good recruitment consultants James was able to make me aware that the process would be as seamless as possible. From the excellent questions James asked me and the excellent relationships he has with his clients James was able to find me the perfect opportunity. I would highly recommend James to all my contacts.Magill Wheeler
