Unearthing and connecting the finest digital talent

Why us?

We offer a truly holistic approach to sourcing individuals for our clients. We are fully engaged with both parties from the offset, throughout the whole process and ensure there is absolute synergy, which ensures continuous success and repeat business. This has been our business mantra for 15 years.

We only work with the most exciting, innovative ,global technology companies, that people want to work for. We want to be genuinely excited about both the product and the people, so we can relay that to the people we find, which is why we chose our clients carefully and only work with the most ingenius.

Unlike most recruiters, we NEVER advertise our jobs. We only use a “go to market strategy” , via our extensive global network and Linkedin to truly unearth relevant individuals.

We have helped a multitude of digital marketing companies from the US and Europe, launch in the UK and grow their presence, in many cases leading to being acquired by behemoths or IPO.

Likewise we have successfully helped global clients expand in Paris, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Cologne, Madrid, Stockholm, Barcelona, Milan, Amsterdam, Singapore, Dubai and Sydney.

We love planes and trains and have travelled extensively all over EMEA, US and APAC to see clients and candidates.

We don’t just find people jobs, or build rock star teams for our clients, we forge long-standing friendships, and ensure our clients have access to the best people and our candidates to the most relevant, dynamic companies.

At the end of the day, it’s all about chemistry.

Meet our founder

James has been in the advertising recruitment world since 2003, however he set up Relish in 2007 and has over the years, worked successfully with the likes of Xaxis, Criteo, Microsoft, Xandr, Salesforce, Group M, Oracle, Nielsen, Ogury, Global, The FT, Hearst, Unruly and Havas to name a few.

He loves sunshine , electronic music, Seinfeld and hanging out with his family. He is also a keen tennis and squash player and runs religiously every day, whatever the weather.

James at Relish Global is one of the brightest recruiters I've had the opportunity to work with. James created a deep relationship with key people in our industry, is a true listener, and is always one step ahead of his mission. I can’t recommend working with James enough, who did and continues to do a tremendous job for us.

Arthur Larrey Co-founder Audion

James is great to work with and a valued partner, sourcing a majority of the senior hires into my business over the last three years. He is open, extremely knowledgeable about the industry, and brings a level of energy that is unrivaled. Perhaps what best defines James is his innate instinct with people. He’s a good judge on who will fit, the buttons to press to secure talent, and has a genuine interest in ensuring candidate and employer are going to be right for each other. When I brief James I can trust him to only bring forward candidates that will fit the bill.
