Company Company Profile

Barrington James as recently named as a Sunday Times Top 100 Company To Work For, putting us firmly in the Best 10 ‘Small’ Recuitment Companies to work for in the UK and making us THE Best Recruitment company to work for in Surrey/West Sussex.

We welcome diversity. We don’t actually care where you come from, what you’ve studied or where you live.

As long as you can show us something that you have done well within the past five years, then we’re happy to chat. If you have the attitude. If you really have the ambition. If you are prepared to learn and work hard. We’d like to hear from you.

There is, unquestionably, a buzz about working at BJ. Yes, we are professional, dedicated and hard working with high ethical standards, but we have fun.

BJ is a diverse community, with a great mix of nationalities, languages and personality types. We are all different, but we are a team. And a very successful one. Is this a team you would like to join?

From our inception the Barrington James philosophy has been to recognise and reward success. Over a third of our consultants take home over £55k and our top performers earn in excess of £100k.

Now we’re justly famous for our awesome reward programmes. The best way to get an insight into what happens at Barrington James is to read more about us on one of our numerous social media profiles – go check us out.

Case Studies

  • Name: Taylor Ahearne
  • Role: Recruitment Consultant
  • Joined: Summer 2015
  • University: Portsmouth University
  • Degree: Criminology

Taylor joined our G.R.A.D. scheme in the summer of 2015. Initially working from our HQ in Surrey, Taylor expressed an interest in moving to one of our overseas offices. Although relocation isn’t essential in this role, we make it an option available to all of our new consultants, something which is perhaps unique to Barrington James. After successfully completing our Academy, Barrington James secured Taylor a U.S Visa and provided her with a relocation package which included return flights and three months free rental accommodation in Manhattan. Taylor now works from our New York office and began 2017 well by winning Sales Person of the Month and receiving her third £10,000+ monthly pay cheque.

Training & Profiles

We believe passionately in giving our people the right tools to do the best job. Consequently, our training and development programmes are second to none. New consultants complete a thorough and practical on-going programme, that gives them a practical grounding in all aspects of the recruitment process, and how Barrington James operates.

The most important learning of course comes from the structured experience you will get from the job, and rubbing shoulders with some of the best billers in the industry.

All performance at Barrington James is formally monitored, reviewed, and rewarded using a tailored Balanced Scorecard system. This structured approach means that career development is not haphazard. There is a genuine ladder of achievement for all employees. We are proud of the rapid promotions achieved by some of our high fliers. Just read some of the brief biographies on our website.
