My Recruiting Experience

James' experience is varied and ranges from high end full service operations (Harrods Restaurants, Knightsbridge, London), to casual dining (Pizza Express, UK) and most recently fast casual with Mad Mex Fresh Mexican Grill (Australia). James is now using his hospitality knowledge and passion for the recruitment of restaurant professionals, focusing on the search for exceptional candidates.

Where I work...

Sydney, New South Wales
Nope! I prefer to focus on roles in the same physical location.

Having worked with James for several years in a very demanding role I always found him to be the total professional. James managed to very successfully focus on the absolute details as well as maintaining a strategic viewpoint over the whole of his area. James has real operational and man management expertise that he ran seamlessly to deliver a high performing area and team. I would gladly work with James again in the future.

James joined my business, Mad Mex, in 2011 when we were just 11 restaurants. His knowledge, passion and determination were instrumental in helping me support and grow our network to nearly 50 locations in 2.5 years. James understands the hospitality industry, the challenges and opportunities all business face, and the importance of good people and strong systems to deliver results. Any hospitality business would be lucky to have him on board
