James Griffin

Principal Consultant - International

Who I Am:

A Degree educated Principal Consultant with a BSc (Hons) in Construction Management, I originally hail from Pembrokeshire West Wales. After completing my degree I joined a well respected construction contractor as a trainee manager, before choosing a career in recruitment. 

With a thorough understanding of the industries in which our clients operate, I originally joined Thatcher Associates to head up their Construction desk for South and West Wales. I soon realised that my talents lay within International recruitment.

What I do:

I now head up the International desk here at Thatcher Associates, acting as Principal Consultant responsible for recruitment throughout the Caribbean and LATAM. I specialise in placing people in the following sectors:

Main contracting. Providing operational and commercial leadership professionals for building and civil construction projects. 
Resort Engineering. Providing technical specialists in the ongoing operation of resorts of up to 1,000 rooms. 
Consulting. Providing design, cost and project management professionals to consultancy companies. 
Hospitality. Providing senior management to the hospitality sector.
Commerce. Providing senior managemerial professionals in a range of businesses; predominantly in finance, operations, and IT. 

How I do this: 

Contingent recruitment: a file search from our extensive database and networks.
Contained search: a more in-depth search with a small element of the fee paid at the beginning of the search, and deducted from the final bill when the successful hire starts with you. 
Retained search: a full deep dive involving detailed market research and extensive approaches to prospective candidates, billed traditionally in three stages.  

If you are currently facing recruitment challenges or are looking for a contract/permanent position within the construction industry please make contact and we'll arrange a call to discuss.
