Neil James


I have over twenty years experience in senior management, leadership and director level positions working in in the pharmaceutical, recruitment and FMCG industries with large companies such as Kelloggs, Kraft Foods, Boots Pharmaceuticals and BASF Pharma. I was a founding Director of the Pharma recruitment agency North 51.

I’ve designed and implemented many selection processes and interviewed thousands of job candidates, giving me unrivalled insight and experience into what employers are really looking for when recruiting. In short, I know what makes the difference between success and failure when being interviewed.

I am qualified in Occupational Testing to British Psychological Society Level A&B, this allows me to administer and interpret psychometric tests (both ability and personality instruments) which are often used as part of corporate assessment centres.

I understand what works well and just as importantly what does not when attempting to secure roles in a corporate environment.

I have a real passion for developing people and this drives me to help individuals to realise their career aspirations. I would love to work with you!
