James Magee

Before starting his career in recruitment James read Law at the University of Bristol, graduating in 2005 with an LLB (Hons). After moving to London, he initially joined a small, owner-managed recruitment firm focused on recruiting qualified accountants for the insurance industry, both general insurance and the Lloyd's market.

From there he joined Morgan McKinley in their temporary finance division. He specialised in placing qualified and part-qualified accountants into asset management and hedge fund clients on a temporary / interim basis.

James joined Equity FC in June 2008 with a desire to work more closely with his clients and candidates. The focus of Equity FC, namely placing technically strong yet commercial accountants into high growth, entrepreneurial businesses, has allowed James to work with an eclectic mix of organisations.

This range has included a pre-revenue technology company in Leeds, a nationwide leisure organisation, a facilities management business on the South Coast and a start-up mobile gaming / media company in central London to name a few.

The main reason James enjoys working for Equity FC is that every day is different. There is no ‘typical’ Equity FC candidate or client. The key is that the business or individual will be looking to do something different, which makes life as a recruitment consultant much more interesting!
