We are Handley James One

Reliable, credible and honest

We are here for you.

Handley James was launched by its founders to provide the SME manufacturing community with a quality recruitment service on a committed basis.

With a genuine passion for recruitment and for wanting to do a “good job”, Natalie and Peter are both aligned in wanting to provide a bespoke, quality driven solution. They established Handley James initially to support the manufacturing community through providing strategic recruitment and retention advice and ensuring that every manufacturer that they work with were equipped with the correct tools and techniques to make successful long term appointments.


Through their success in the manufacturing sector they were requested to support numerous different businesses in various sectors and have since been able to apply those same techniques to add value to other industry sectors. Now with the successful launch of Handley James Contracting, the team at Handley James are also able to provide the same high quality service offering to contract and high level interim roles.

Equality Across All Roles, Disciplines & Sectors Two

Handley James apply unique Search and Headhunting techniques to all of your recruitment requirements.


Irrespective of whether you are recruiting a skilled technical role or an executive placement we provide the same level of service to clients and candidates alike. 

Our experience has led us to employ

industry leading recruitment strategies

whether looking for a candidate or new role.

No “Pressure Tactics” Just a Consultative Quality Process Three

We believe that most recruitment consultancies drive a KPI culture that is not quality but volume and financially driven; here at Handley James we consider quality and care as the most vital elements of the service we provide and this applies to clients and candidates.

We don’t utilise pressure tactics, we operate a mature and respectful consultation process where your decisions are accepted and more importantly, respected.

Handley James hold “quality” as synonymous

with their ethical and moral standard

as a recruitment partner.
