Client testimonials


Ruella James are simply the best recruiter to the recruitment industry.  I have had the pleasure of working with Ruella over the last 9 years as both a candidate and a client.  My loyalty to Ruella and her team is due to the fact they provide a far superior service to the other recruitment to recruitment firms we have dealt with in the past and we know we can trust them to provide excellent insight, support and results consistently. Ruella delivers a one to one service that leaves other firms far behind as nothing is ever too much trouble and not only have she and her team helped me create a fantastic team for my business but she has also provided invaluable business insight and advice far beyond the normal parameters of a recruiter.  I would recommend Ruella James as an absolute must have to business owners looking for advice, partnership and a quality led service that delivers and can be trusted and to candidates looking for someone to enhance their career prospects and offer interesting ideas others would not see.

They have a genuinely consultative approach to R2R and have invested time and effort into understanding our business and how we work. As a result, they are able to identify the kind of people who will fit. I trust their judgment and know that the candidates they represent will be worth meeting.

Melanie Bramwell, Director - Judd Farris Property Recruitment.

Ruella James has played a significant role in the development of our team since 2006 by recommending six candidates to us – four of whom we’ve employed. This outstanding hit rate firmly differentiates Ruella James from its competition. In an industry where poor service is the norm, Ruella provides a warm, reliable and professional approach. A key recruitment partner who provides a service that definitely stands out.
James Allen, Director - Allen Lane Financial Recruitment.

Ruella and her team do a great job of making the recruitment process as simple as it can be. They brief candidates properly and you can always see the logic behind their candidate selection. If you like someone they'll get on with it, giving you all the information you need to handle the process effectively and make the right decision.
Jim Brown, Managing Director - round8 ltd.

Ruella James has played an integral role in assisting us with our ambitious growth plans and is a true business partner. Through sheer hard work and determination they have placed a number of key managers within the business who have played major role in our rapid growth and success. Ruella’s honesty, down to earth approach and integrity is extremely refreshing. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
Jo Stuteley, Director - la crème.

I run the Property & Construction team at PSD and often have requirements for inexperienced and experienced staff. We have used a number of recruitment consultancies and Ruella James has been one of the best. They listen to what I need, in terms of experience and personality, and deliver good quality CVs in line with this. They also handle the recruitment process with integrity and enthusiasm, adding value to our business by ultimately delivering great people. I have hired two people in the last 12 months who have proved to be excellent. They meet and prepare their candidates well while the quality of service and follow up has been fantastic.
Marcus Fry, Manager - PSD.

Ruella James has an excellent track record in identifying and attracting high calibre consultants who will thrive in a competitive search environment. Their knowledge of the legal recruitment market is impressive and they perform well throughout the recruitment process. Thanks.
David Roberts, Manager - Pure Legal Search.

Ruella James has been a preferred supplier for Witan Jardine for over 10 years. We have always found Ruella and her team to be honest, efficient and professional. They have taken time to get to know our business and consistently provide us with high quality staff. We would not hesitate to recommend their services.
Omar Akram, Internal Recruitment - Witan Jardine.

We have used Ruella James over a number of years and they have continually found the right calibre of consultants/managers for us. Their knowledge of our business, its culture and values are key to the ongoing success. There is a perceived lack of quality in the marketplace and many recruitment to recruitment agencies send as many candidates as possible without asking the right questions. Ruella James differentiate themselves by only sending the right candidates, for the right positions. This low candidate to placement ratio saves us time, effort and money and assists our business in moving forward.
David Miller, Internal Recruitment - Badenoch & Clark.

Ruella, I am writing to express how impressed we are with the quality service and candidates you have provided. We have very specific requirements when we are looking for senior candidates who can be part of our continued growth plan and so far you have achieved a 100% success rate. Importantly the candidates you have supplied have all understood what will be required from them and what values we believe in. We see Ruella James as the first step of our interview process.
Stewart Blair, MD - Resourcing Associates.

We have recruited four consultants through Ruella James and have been delighted with the consistent quality of candidates that they send through to us. As a very niche recruitment business we have a very strict recruitment policy and Ruella James has taken time to understand our business and the types of people who may be suitable.
