Recruitment & Hiring

James Handley


I did not fall into recruitment, I chose it. I am fascinated by people and by each person’s unique life story. I am also passionate about business; helping companies achieve outstanding growth and success through people.

I can help you with

scope workforce planning, create job specifications, develop person specification, design recruitment project, candidate attraction strategies, boost job performance, promote employer brand, benchmark candidate proposition, write job ads, manage candidate response, assess cultural fit, manage offer negotiations


I spent the first portion of my career at Kantar (part of WPP) managing all graduate and experienced hire recruitment, across several brands.   

The second part of my career in equal measure, has been spent on the agency side, five years with Hudson, Australia, a global recruitment firm, and a further three years with a start-up employment agency – Pollen Recruitment in London.  In September 2018 I founded Flow Recruitment Pty Ltd, a specialist recruitment firm focussing on roles with a Market Research, Insight, Strategy and Data Analytics slant.

Throughout my career, I have consulted with some of the biggest global research firms on graduate and experienced hire recruitment, employer branding, employee retention and candidate proposition strategies.

I truly believe in challenging clients and candidates to think, feel, and act differently every day.  And, importantly, I get results.
