I have been part of Elizabeth Norman International since July 2012. In that time, the industry has changed a great deal and the pace of change is ever increasing, which makes it exciting for us as there’s always something new to work on / learn.
I manage half the team at ENI, plus senior client relationships and speak to candidates too. I recruit at all levels but focus on insight, analytics, market intelligence, UX roles working with management consultancies, client-side brand, media agencies & research consultancies.
In my free time, I’m watching something with Ricky Gervais or playing Fornite (badly).
Get to know James a little better
What is your role at ENI?
I’m a director here (having been here for over 9 years now) and manage Emily & Olly, as well as managing some of our long-standing clients, developing new business and generally supporting everyone in the team.
Which of the values at ENI do you resonate mostly with?
Curious – I really love learning about people and their backgrounds – my fiancé can vouch for it too; she says I ask too many questions.
Best piece of advice you have received?
Never assume! You just never know a candidates professional and family situation so it’s always worth asking if they’d be interested in an opportunity you have.
Interest in Diversity & Inclusion:
Particularly interested in more experienced candidates, breaking ageism barriers – they have so much to offer!
Interesting fact about you?
I’m an excellent ice skater (although thinking ice skating as a team is banned, we went once, and a colleague broke her wrist! ☹)
So how did you end up in the role you have now?!
Fell into recruitment to be honest (as most researchers do getting into research) but loved the variety, fast-paced nature of the role and getting to speak with lots of different people.
