General Manager, Melbourne

James has over 15 years of recruitment experience, starting out in the mental health sector before moving to leading global firm Robert Half International in 2006. In 2013, he saw a rare opportunity to combine his interest in social and environmental causes with his recruitment expertise, becoming a key player in the expansion of job search platform Ethical Jobs.

For six years, James and his team were responsible for growing the job board’s employer base, forging long lasting relationships with not-for-profit organisations across the country.

James has established volunteer partnerships included a three-month program between consultants working for Robert Half International and the Asylum Seeker Resource Centre and a corporate partnership strategy for Lock the Gate’s Victorian campaign in 2014. He also volunteers at his local community preschool and is a regular financial supporter of the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne.
