Client Services

The range of services Barrington James offers to clients has evolved, and continues to evolve, to meet their changing needs and ambitions. Over the last decade our organization, and its capabilities, have been transformed.

Originally, a purely contingency and contract recruiter, focussed in the UK, Barrington James is now a sophisticated, highly effective provider of human resources solutions up to full RPO, partnering the pharma, medical devices, and healthcare industries right across the globe.

Contingency Recruitment

Barrington James is an extremely effective contingency recruiter because it is a specialist not a generalist recruitment company. It is large enough to have specific teams working in vertical markets in each of its key functional areas. It has unrivalled networks, state of the art working practises, and a reputation for success and integrity amongst both the candidate and business community.

Expect, as we do, that Barrington James performance will be outstanding

  • In the speed of turn round of assignments,
  • In the quality of communication the client receives on the process,
  • In the standard of candidates presented.

RPO - Recruitment Process Outsourcing

RPO is a fast growing component of international recruitment. RPO is about sharing accountability for the talent acquisition of a company. Its chief advantages to the client are speed of hire, quality of hire, scalability and cost-effectiveness.

But everything depends on the quality of the RPO provider. BJ has built up the manpower assets, market expertise, and robust systems to provide comprehensive RPO, or partial RPO – that is, that limited to a specific location, function, or department - as appropriate to the particular needs of your company. 

If you have not yet worked with us, let us demonstrate the potential of this methodology; let us show you what we can do. And if you already have a relationship with Barrington James it’s worth a discussion to find out what more we can do for you.

Retained Campaign Management

Retained Campaign Management offers a true blend of services, enabling Barrington James to deploy a flexible range of proven techniques and expertise to meet the clients’ particular requirements. Barrington James recommends this arrangement in various circumstances, and has had great success in challenging recruitment assignments.

Working to a series of timed deadlines, Barrington James typically uses strategic advertising, networking and social media, as well as database mining and selective headhunting.

Contract and Interim

Recruitment of contract and interim staff has been core strength of Barrington James since its inception in 2002. Barrington James has a dedicated Contracts Team of vertical market specialists who only network with freelancers.  All jobs are fully qualified at the initial stage, with time bound deliverables agreed. All candidates are pre-screened and references checked.

We aim to provide total peace of mind to clients and contractors. All documentation from country specific ID to professional contracts and public liability insurance cover are rigorously examined. Payment terms and delivery are transparent and effective. Post placement review meetings ensure projects proceed as planned. Nothing is left to chance.

Global Executive Search 

Some key appointments simply don’t have traditional job descriptions, or traditional blends of skill sets. Sometimes, there is such a degree of secrecy attached to an appointment that it is very difficult to search publicly. Sometimes the appointment is so key to the company concerned, that the successful applicant must be a world leader in his field and one of a tiny handful of possible candidates.

Barrington James has in place a first-rate executive search team whose job it is to keep a close eye on scarce candidate communities. This team is expert at creating the right market strategy to fit specific client recruitment need, no matter sensitive, or specialist, or important.
