A Brief History

Peter James & Partners was established in April 1986 by Peter Wills and James Crowfoot. The business at the time specialised in recruiting CAD/CAM staff primarily for the U.K.\'s major defence contractors. Much of the business in the early days concentrated on recruiting PCB/CAD Design Engineers and Technicians, to fill both hourly paid and permanent staff positions.

Within 12 months PJP had established a solid reputation with both clients and candidates, and the business expanded into other sectors, especially Architectural and Quantity/Building Surveying. By 1989 the success in these markets led to the business expanding further into general engineering on the consultancy side, from large multi-discipline practices to the outright specialists.

During the recession in the early 1990\'s the CAD/CAM defence recruitment side of the business ceased, and the business has concentrated solely ever since on engineering recruitment for the consulting engineers and Local Authorities. Recruitment covers both permanent and temporary/contract staff.

Since 1991 this specialist concentration has been slowly refined, and the key areas we recruit in are now :-

Traffic Engineering and Transport Planning
Highways and Infrastructure
Building and Bridge Structures


In over 28 years of recruitment PJP has built up a reputation to be proud of, and over this long period the business has gained the respect of hundreds of clients and candidates who have profited from the services we offer.
