When James Chase reached out to me with a role it was clear they knew what they were doing as it was such a perfect match. Mike was always friendly and supportive in helping me secure an excellent role, drive my career forward in an exciting new direction, and navigate a remote hire. He shows genuine interest in finding the right person for the role, and the right role for the person, and has checked in after the offer/acceptance stage to see how things are going. He’s been a pleasure to engage with throughout.Roxannne Lewington, Marketing Manager at Canto
Working with James Chase and in particular Mike was not only very pleasant but especially efficient. The team were truly helpful, encouraging me and keeping me in the loop every step of they way. Thanks to them I am currently very happy about my position; otherwise I’d work with them again– anytimeLeonie Kunz, Senior Product Designer at Joyn
James Chase have raised the bar in terms of what I look for in a recruitment partner. They make a genuine effort to understand the candidate’s experience and needs, making sure there is a good fit between the candidate and the relevant organisation. Their knowledge of the product design field, support and regular check-ins provided throughout the process are invaluable. What also stood out for me is the innovative recruitment approach – sending a 10 minute video interview of a candidate with high potential to the hiring organisation. Not just the “forward all the CVs I have” approach. I can strongly recommend Mike Neal and the team at James ChaseMarco Pretorious , Head of Experience Design and Research at trivago
