FJ’s Year in Review: 2016

FJ’s Year in Review: 2016

It’s that time of year where recruiters frantically scramble in as many deals as possible, before letting it all go and hitting every bar within a 2 mile radius of their office.

This is aimed for anyone thinking of getting into recruitment… or moving on from your current company. Over the last 12 months FJ have:

Had a record year

…and quarter and month. All in all, a great 2016 for Finlay James!

Had some great incentives

…which has included a trip to Disneyland Paris, Barcelona, spa days, top restaurants and unique gifts.


…opening a new London office and started our own FJ Academy!

Promoted 10’s of staff

…with pay rises!

Looked after our staff

…whether it be through expert training or attending events to help our employees to expand their knowledge.

Gone through a Management Buyout

…in the summer of 2016, with John and Sara Gaughan completing the purchase of 100 per cent of the shareholding and ownership of the company.

Raised £5,000 for charity

…including doing the Yorkshire 3 Peaks and the LA Marathon! We’re already thinking of ways we can raise money for our 2017 nominated charity MacMillan Cancer Support!

Had some great parties

…summer parties, Christmas parties and even a live band in the office! With a fair amount of alcohol being consumed too!

Sponsored Curzon Ashton Football Club

…through their Emirates FA Cup run. Unfortunately, they lost 4-3 against AFC Wimbledon in the 2nd round…(agh!)

Kept telephone and internet companies in business

…by making 1000’s of phone calls and sending 1000’s of emails.

Matched 100’s of candidates with their perfect job

…and set up 1000’s of interviews with some of the hottest tech companies in the world.

Won 100’s of new clients

…all over the world.

Won a pub quiz

…and we intend to retain this title in 2017!

Became a Top 25 Most Socially Engaged Company on LinkedIn

…out of 60,000 EMEA recruitment companies on LinkedIn!

Dished out plenty of awards

…ranging from a “Directors’ Award” and “Rookie of the Year” all the way down to “Worst Brew”.

The thing about FJ is… we’re always doing new and interesting things. It’s an interesting exercise to list a lot of the good stuff down…
