James Wilson
Principal Consultant Permanent Commercial Division

As a Principle Consultant with plenty of experience, James specialises in permanent Accountancy and Finance roles — from clerical support right through to Chief Financial Officers across the Auckland region. For James, recruitment satisfies his desire for a challenge in a fast-paced environment whilst developing long-lasting relationships.  James thrives on both the art of finding the right talent for his clients and finding those all-important career-changing opportunities for his candidates.

With a background working for Global organisations, James is enjoying the experience of working for a more specialised boutique agency that gives him plenty of scope and the opportunity to ‘finesse’ developing and existing relationships.

On a personal level, James has competed nationally and internationally as part of a pipe band and has played the bagpipes for over 15 years.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank Parker Bridge for the committed service and professionalism I have received during the process of sourcing a suitable role. I'm very positive and excited about the new role that I've been offered through Parker Bridge. Notably, the service I have received was of the rarest quality in comparison with my previous dealings with other recruitment agencies. I'd especially like to thank my consultant James Wilson. His dedication and professionalism made me feel comfortable and relaxed at all times and he was always totally reliable. I'd like to recommend Parker Bridge to anyone who is looking for future employment in Accounting or Finance. Once again, thanks to my consultant James for all the hard work and effort he has made. Susan Chen | August 2017
