About James

James is passionate about Cox Purtell and passionate about recruitment, people, and good service. For most of his life, James has been exposed to the industry through his family connection to Cox Purtell.

James had an early career in commercial accounting both in Australia and overseas but it was somewhat inevitable that he would eventually be drawn back to the industry that’s in his blood. High level account management of Key Accounts, strategy and stewardship of the business towards our stated aim of being Australia’s No 1 Boutique Recruiter are James’ main responsibilities.

Most weekday mornings at 6am you can find James sweating it out in the CrossFit box but on the weekends he likes to mix that up with some weeding and keeping 2 young children entertained.



I can honestly say Cox Purtell is the best recruitment agency I have registered with. I have been kept in the loop with what roles I have been submitted for and regularly keep in contact with the recruitment specialist. – Miliana Natuba

Cox Purtell was the first agency I approached. I had an interview and within 4 hours I had been placed with a company for temp work. I was astonished at how quickly this happened. I will continue to express how fantastic Cox Purtell services are. This is the finest company in the industry. – Alexandra Morris

James spoke with me as though he has worked with me and known me for many years. I had never meant James, previously. James provided me with sufficient information, to convince me that I was pursuing a role for which I was a good fit. – Darryl

Excellent conversation. Highly knowledgeable and experienced recruiter. Thanks James! – Miro
