Where will I be working?

Having opened in August 2016, the London office is fast catching up with the other two and has the highest potential for growth.  We are keen to seek out high calibre graduates who can add to our success so far and spaces are available on our HR, IT, Finance, Housing and Property Management teams. The office, based in Lincoln's Inn Fields, Holborn, comes complete with views of St Paul’s, the Gherkin and the Shard.  We put a lot of thought into choosing this location, opting for a place where our employees could truly experience the buzz and excitement of the city after work with plenty of nearby bars and restaurants to choose from.

Where will I be working?

Since 2009, we have outgrown three offices in Leicester – a sure sign of our success. In April 2018 we moved to our brand new headquarters, situated right in the heart of the thriving Clarendon Park/Queen’s Road area with space for over 40 staff members in a fully refurbished office. The building has a beautiful façade that is in keeping with the character of the rest of the properties in the area and actually used to be an old bank (the massive steel doors of the cash vault is still there and we have kept it as a feature of the office interior). The office also has a "chill zone" complete with TVs, sofas, teas and coffees, and a bar. A perfect place to start off our "Month End Friday" nights out.

Where will I be working?

Our Birmingham office, which opened in 2010, is set in picturesque St. Paul’s Square next to the historic Jewellery Quarter. In 2013 we moved to the top floor of our building after outgrowing the first premises. Now with space for over 40 employees we have become a major graduate recruiter in a very short time span. The office also benefits from a lovely view of the old courtyard and church below, making it a peaceful oasis in a busy and fast-paced city (and a quiet place to have your lunch on a sunny day!).

Investors in People

In June 2015, at our first attempt, we were awarded the “Investors in People” standard and it’s an accolade that we’re extremely proud of.

For our Consultants, we were able to demonstrate our dedication to our profession and our people, which means that we’ve been able to cultivate a work environment that takes employees’ wellbeing seriously, whilst also ensuring a high level of performance for our clients and candidates.

Following a reassessment in 2018, we were delighted to be awarded Silver accreditation following three years of continuous improvement and innovation.

The “Investors in People” award was created in-partnership with respected organisations with the goal of highlighting great performance.  This accolade means that James Andrews is accredited with being a successful business and a fantastic place to work.

An Unmatched Training Programme

From the very first day you join your training and continued personal development are our priorities, which is why we dedicate a budget of over £250,000 every year exclusively for training.

On day one you will be assigned a personal mentor who will not just be involved in your training but will be there for you as and when you need them in those all-important first few months.

Your personal mentor will be a vital part of training with James Andrews and will help you through the daunting first few months.  Working as a Recruitment Consultant takes a lot of effort, organisation and enthusiasm, but with a great training programme, a personal development plan and a mentor to help you, we can provide the tools you’ll need to become a truly great addition to James Andrews.

All training will be delivered by experienced Senior Consultants up to Director Level who have a wealth of experience and unprecedented success within the recruitment industry.  Once this thorough induction has been completed, and throughout your career, you will receive continual development, management training, and regular one-to-ones where your career development will be reviewed and encouraged.  All programmes are designed and coordinated by our specialist Training & Development Manager who has a decades’ worth of experience in the industry and will be responsible for your journey from your early days with the company right through to a Senior/Managing Consultant position and beyond.

New Consultants

The future of James Andrews is in the hands of our new Consultants. We place an enormous amount of time, effort, and expense in their development as we aim to grow our business organically and offer individuals career paths which will not be bettered anywhere else.

Having family members in the company (Lauren & Andy), I had heard a lot about the work environment of James Andrews, particularly how it’s very lively and supportive. I was keen to join a company with a vibrant and sociable team!

Having graduated with an English Language degree, I felt that with it being such a transferable degree, I wanted to use the skills I had gained to step into a graduate role.

So far, I have really enjoyed being part of such a supportive team. Whilst there has been lots of information to take in, I feel that it has been of an ideal pace and I have been supported along the way by the office and the Talent Team

It has surprised me how fast the days go by! With no previous experience in recruitment, it was interesting to find out the way in which the recruitment process is done, particularly having been on the other end as a graduate myself

What have you enjoyed most so far about your day-to-day work or training?
I have really enjoyed how varied the days have been in terms of speaking to a variety of people, gathering information and furthermore taking that information provided to make important decisions

What drew you towards a career in recruitment?

Having previously worked in a customer facing environment I knew I enjoyed working with people. I wanted to use this going forward in my career so recruitment jumped out at me

What first attracted you to James Andrews?

Having applied for a few recruitment positions the team work and office ‘vibe’ at James Andrews was something that really stood out. Month ends and group commission seem to really create a fun but productive workforce. Throughout the interview process it was the most professional company I had conducted interviews with so the choice was easy when I had two offers on the table

Why did you decide to seek a graduate role in Leicester?

I did not want to move back to Norfolk, partly because of the lack of jobs on the market and also because I couldn’t face moving back in with my parents after having been so independent at University. I was renting with friends and had a part time job at Sainsbury’s but wanted to further my career and get into full time work

Favourite thing about working here so far?

The office! Even when the work gets tough there is a sense that everyone is in it together and no task is too hard. This makes the learning process much easier

What has surprised you most about being a Recruitment Consultant?

The depth of work involved with the role. After reading through the basics in the manual it seems like every day another task, which I didn’t even think a recruitment consultant would be involved in, is added to the list of things to learn

What have you enjoyed most so far about your day-to-day work or training?

Getting to grips with Profile has been really rewarding. It seems to be a programme where the more you use it the easier it will become but it has been nice to be introduced to one of the staples of the office

What drew you towards a career in recruitment?

I enjoy working in an environment with a blend of individual and team-focused efforts. Given James Andrews’ unique work structure, the progression from working in labs to a business office came surprisingly naturally. Some of my favourite times throughout my degree were communicating the results of my research at conferences and in presentations to audiences with a mix of abilities and subject understanding. Enjoying communication was a key factor in attracting me to recruitment

What first attracted you to James Andrews?

I first heard of James Andrews when Charlie (a James Andrews consultant and former peer on my course) put out a post on social media advertising a position available at James Andrews’ Leicester office. Having discussed this with Charlie, the sample day cemented my interest and intent to join the James Andrews team

Why did you decide to seek a graduate role in Birmingham/London/Leicester?

I already knew a lot of people in Leicester from my time at University. I’m currently living with my girlfriend, who’s at the University of Leicester, so being based in the same area was highly desirable

Favourite thing about working here so far?

My favourite thing about working here is the team. They make you feel more than welcome and are extremely patient during the training process

What has surprised you most about being a Recruitment Consultant?

The speed at which I’ve understood business concepts and terms has been quite surprising. This was something that I’ve never really been exposed to, coming from a science background. Also, the thrill of placing jobs is also something I did not expect to get so immediately either. However, it quickly becomes exciting

What have you enjoyed most so far about your day-to-day work or training

A Day in the Life of a New Consultant

7:00am

I’m either awake or I’ve been hitting snooze every 10 minutes since 6:30, either way I’ll get up soon, promise!

7:30am

Nutella on toast, shower, dressed, and out the door by 7:30.

I was never up and about this early at uni but I’m already buzzing for the day ahead.  One of my clients has promised me a call as he needs our help in sourcing a HR Manager.  I’ve been building a relationship with him for four months so it’s great to get this breakthrough at last!

8:30am

Since 8:00am we’ve been calling our candidates to wish them luck for their interviews or their first day in their new job.  It’s nice for them to hear a friendly voice first thing to calm their nerves.

We then have one of our team meetings at 8:30am to plan the day ahead, after which I settle down to a morning of business development and account management.

(Not forgetting the crucial morning drinks round!)

10:00am

It’s all hands to the pump!  My client called in as promised with the HR Manager vacancy and it’s an urgent temporary role to start on Monday.

We work as a team at James Andrews so I can lean on my colleagues as we contact all the available candidates in the area.  We are able to get four excellent CVs across to my client within a very short space of time.

12:30pm

Lunch time.  I’ve already become a creature of habit in my new job – sausage casserole from “Salvador Deli” pretty much every day!

After lunch I’m scheduled to complete some of my training with my line manager.  Our training is always followed up with a spot test later in the month to check that we’ve retained what we’ve learned and to identify any further training needs.

2:30pm

It’s time to try and hit the rest of my targets as it’s nearing the end of the month.

I also have my Training Week next week so I will be put up in a hotel near our Birmingham Office.  I’m looking forward to it – a chance to meet other new Consultants from the other offices, and to get some classroom-based training from our experienced senior managers.

4:00pm

My colleagues have found another excellent candidate for my HR Manager role.  Our team-commission structure means that you are never on your own to deal with the work.

I love life on the team and they have been so welcoming since I joined. It’s in all our interests that I get up to speed as soon as possible in order to contribute to our success, and we fancy ourselves to bag one of the Top Team awards at the upcoming Christmas party.

6:00pm

I’ll finish whatever admin needs doing, take a couple of calls from candidates who couldn’t answer their phones earlier, then it’s out for a curry for one of the guys’ birthdays.  I’m just showing my face tonight as I have hockey training.

The chat in the pub is geared around what the office is going to get up to for our “Month End” night out – the plan at the moment is to check out a new Escape Rooms that’s just opened in town, and then go “out out”.

7:00pm

Off to the hockey pitches for some training – I’ve re-joined the team I used to play for before I went to uni and it’s great to unwind (albeit in a very active way!)

9:00pm

Time for whatever it is I’m watching on Netflix, I’ll watch one episode too many (standard) and get up ready to do it all over again tomorrow.
