"I’ve dealt with Andy for over ten years and would highly recommend anyone working within Construction and the Built Environment to speak to Coleman James. They’re by far the most professional recruiters I’ve dealt with; their understanding of the sector is first class and their national connections lead to exciting opportunities. Andy has secured a number of high profile projects for me throughout my career, opportunities are well sourced, information is accurate and all matters dealt with professionally and confidentially. I trust him and his firm to represent me and would recommend others speak to Coleman James so you can understand why their approach to recruitment stands out from the norm."

George Trueman, Site Manager

"I tried and tested a number of recruitment agencies and was recommended Coleman James by a friend. I can confidently say that it was the best decision I could have made. The experience provided was A class, keeping me up to date with recommended jobs and relevant information on a regular basis. Much to my delight I secured the job. They continued to support me in wanting to discuss the interview and ensuring it was the best pathway for me to follow. Furthermore, my profession is somewhat in a niche field therefore appreciated Coleman James had a challenge. This being said they acted fast and found the perfect job for me. Being unemployed is somewhat stressful and daunting however, Coleman James released that pressure from me and did a lot of the ‘leg work’, I merely had to attend the interview and get the job. I am ever so grateful for the advice and professionalism provided and therefore would highly recommend Coleman James as a recruitment agency."


"I would comment on Andy in two ways. I personally worked with Andy on numerous occasions and found him to be professional, intelligent, reliable and fun to work with. He is the kind of individual who is constantly trying to improve performance to deliver an excellent recruitment solution to both candidates and clients. The judge of Andy as a Manager is perhaps best based on his team and I also had the pleasure of working closely with them. Andy clearly manages to develop quality and motivated recruiters. His people demonstrate that he can lead, train and motivate others and can inspire his team to work towards his own high standards. I strongly recommend Andy as someone to work with and for."
