" I felt like Dan actually cares about my needs as opposed to treating me as another candidate. I felt like I was a bit of a lost cause, with no chance of getting a job, and Dan had me one immediately with a (very) good starting salary, an interview straight away where I was accepted on the same day, within an hour."

How Ronald James helped Chris find his new dream role

What type of role did he want?

Software Developer, a junior position.

Were you at all hesitant to responding to Ronald James when we approached you?

"Not at all, I was contacted via LinkedIn and asked if it was okay for them to call me. I said yes, they did and I was immediately greeted by a friendly voice and professional manner; I knew they understood exactly what I was looking for and how to best cater for me."

What ultimately made you decide to use Ronald James over all the other agencies that approached you?

"Their professionalism. I wasn't contacted by many people bt RJ made me feel at home; Dan, the person I spoke to, felt like someone I'd known for years after talking for about 5 minutes."

Can you describe what your experience was like with Ronald James?

"I was contacted as somebody who had been out of work since 2011 and spent my time learning new programming technology, completely self-taught. I thought there was very little hope when it came to finding a programming job as I'm not a graduate, nor do I have any commercial experience, so I was looking fora junior position whilst thinking I'd most likely have to do some kind of boring office work in the meantime.

I was contacted by Dan from Ronald James on the Friday. He gave me a technical test for a company to see if I could get an interview for them, which I completed over the weekend. By the following Tuesday afternoon I had a job as a junior software developer for one of the most well-reviewed companiys to work for in the North of England.

Ronald James landed me, somebody with absolutely no commercial experience, the dream job."

What was the benefit you got from using Ronald James to help you find your new job?

"I got a much higher salart than I expected, a better position than I expected and most impressive of all, it took only half a week (including a weekend) from being contacted for me to actually have the job, in writing."

Would you recommend our service to other Developers in the North East?

"Yes, yes and yes. I would, and most likely will recommend RJ to others. I felt like Dan actually cares about my needs as opposed to treating me as another candidate. I felt like I was a bit of a lost cause, with no chance of getting a job, and Dan had me one immediately with a (very) good starting salary, an interview straight away where I was accepted on the same day, within an hour."
