Paul's bio

After serving time with the Royal Navy, Paul started his recruitment career in 1995 with Ruillion where he worked as a consultant. He later moved to a local Yorkshire construction recruiter called Team-Up which, in 1998, was acquired by Hill McGlynn, which later became part of the Randstad Group. Over the ensuing 10 years with Hill McGlynn, Paul progressed from branch manager in Leeds to ultimately become the company’s UK Operations Director with responsibility for 12 blue collar teams across the UK.

Paul joined Search in August 2009 and assumed responsibility for Search’s three site construction business in the North of England. In the ensuing 8 years, Paul has been instrumental in significantly growing Search’s Construction & Property business across the UK. Paul is a passionate, active and visible director, directly account managing some of Search’s largest construction customers. He is out visiting customer sites every week and manages a very tight business.

What people say about us

Kieran Wake-Smith

​“I felt that I had many requirements that would need to be met for me to be happy in a job, and James took these on board and helped find a role that would satisfy these.

He maintained communication throughout all of the recruitment process to answer any of my questions and ease any concerns. To this day, James routinely gets in touch to check in and see how things are going, which epitomises the passion he has for what he does, as well as highlights the commitment he has to those that he helps.”

Search were very understanding of my requirements and narrowed the selection without troubling me with unsuitable positions. Their communication was excellent and they ensured that every step was fully managed. Search is one of the best recruitment consultancies that I have dealt with."
