Magnus James aim to effectively streamline the recruitment process for its clients and candidates in the most effective and efficient ways possible.
James has 18 years experience in recruitment since leaving University. He has covered many industries over this time and has experience placing candidates into more than 30 countries across the globe.
Having known Patrick for some time they set up Magnus James with the aim to provide not only a 1st class service to clients and candidates alike, but to create a great environment for people to work.
Being from a keen footballing family James has always played at a competitive level but recently since his knees and overall fitness has diminished has got involved more in coaching his children’s teams.
Lisa has over 10 years experience in Recruitment and Facilities Management. She brings a methodical and professional approach to recruiting and works around the clock to fulfil the needs of her clients and candidates.
Lisa is an all action girl with a teenage daughter and when she gets spare time is first in line for any outdoor activity. She enjoys village life and walks with her dog.
Nick has several years’ experience in customer service and Estate Agency Sales. Having built up extensive knowledge and passion for the property industry he then moved into recruitment and hasn’t looked back. He loves building long terms relationships with both clients and candidates and is known to never sit down whilst he is on the phone.
Outside of work, he enjoys cruising to exotic new places and spending time with his wife (and two pugs). He is also an avid West Ham fan, so can often be found in East London on a Saturday afternoon singing “I’m forever blowing bubbles!”
Annie has a background in Business Development and has covered the whole of the UK travelling to meet new and existing clients building longlasting relationships. Working within the Property Recruitment Division she loves to get out and about and strives to find the perfect candidate for the role.
She has a bubbly personality and is a good person have around the office to keep spirits high. She loves going on holiday and her favourite destination is Italy. She enjoys a good bottle of wine with some cheese, and if its wine and cheese whilst in Italy she is one happy lady. When she isn’t eating or drinking or out socialising with friends she can be found curled up on the sofa watching box sets on Netflix.

Head of Engineering
Alex has been working in Engineering Recruitment for 17 years supporting clients within the UK and Overseas. He covers a large range of sectors and helps clients to build teams within Civils, Defence, Engineering, Automation, Marine, Automotive, MOD, Manufacturing, Technology, Science, Aerospace, Energy and Infrastructure. He has a real passion for what he does and genuinely enjoys learning all about the roles that he recruits for, making him a fountain of knowledge for all around him!
Before recruitment Alex was in the Royal Signals and has more stories to tell than Uncle Albert, and to keep himself active now he referees rugby at a high level but we are still unsure how good he was as a player.
Matthew has over 6 years IT/Technical and Engineering recruitment experience and within those years he has become an industry expert. Most of his success has fallen within Aviation, Defence, Electronics, IT, Pharmaceutical and Manufacturing throughout UK and Europe.
He is a real character within the Magnus James’ offices and leads by example, always having time to help and develop those around him. If you can’t find Matthew you may find him at the kettle making one of his dozens of cups of tea each day!
Outside of the office he spends most of his time either dancing around his front room with his two young daughters or walking around with a power drill looking for DIY projects!

Charlie lives and breathes recruitment. With 6 years working within the Technology and Digital space he has become an expert in his field. He prides himself on being able to deliver the right candidate to the role in the shortest of time periods even if this means he misses dinner and orders pizza to his desk! He is always available to clients and candidates any time of the day and will never give up on that hard to fill role.
Unfortunately Charlie’s dream of becoming a professional footballer was cut short due to lack of ability after a spell in the “Conference” so he concentrated on office sports and found table tennis to be his real strength. Since joining Magnus James he hasn’t lost a game so he may soon get banned from playing.

Jamie has a real passion for all things tech! He really could talk about it all day and night. With his background in sales and customer service it was the natural move for him to join the world of recruitment. He strives for perfection and takes pride in his stats and would always rather send no CV’s than the wrong CV!
Even though it doesn’t look like it, outside of work Jamie plays a lot of football at a competitive level and never misses a Manchester United match on TV (he has never been to seen them in real life!)
Josh is a seasoned recruitment professional within the Construction Industry having worked both agency and in-house. This gives him a great understanding of the whole recruitment process and helps him assist hiring managers with their growth strategy.
He gains a real satisfaction when helping people find their next step in their career path.
What we didn’t know about Josh was that he was a previously a professional golfer and played at England and County level when he was younger. He is another Manchester United fan and insists he has been to watch them in real life! (Don’t they all). Lover of all sports and has made a promise to become the Magnus James table tennis champion by 2025!
