James Nathan – Recruitment Training for Professional Recruiters





Like you, I know there is no such thing as a natural sales person. The biggest recruitment billers were trained, coached and mentored and, with the right effort anyone can join them!


With over 20 years experience, I specialise in working with both people new to recruitment to help them learn the basic skills on with to build a broader career, as well as those with solid experience to grow and develop their skills further, and then really take off.


I can help you to:


1. Win more business,
2. Get more from your existing clients, and
3. Make significantly more profit



James Nathan is engaging and insightful, delivering with great passion and enthusiasm, whilst sharing his broad experience in aentertaining, commercial and practical way. His recent series of workshops for our consultants were pitched at the right level for an audience with varying degrees of experience, helping all who attended to apply new techniques and learnings immediately in their working life“.
