James Anscomb Joins Conexus as Operations Director

​Following a sustained period of exceptional growth, we are thrilled to announce the appointment of James Anscomb as Operations Director.

James joins us with four and a half years’ experience in the recruitment sector, initially as a 360-recruiter covering London, before undertaking an operational role with a successful focus on significant scaling of revenue and headcount. Prior to his career in recruitment, James worked as an entrepreneur in the property sector.

James’ key focus will be centred around operational efficiency and resilience, whilst putting the foundations in place for the rapid scaleup of our already fast-growing global recruitment business. James will be working with key stakeholders throughout the company, including the board of directors, to further develop the growth plan and strategy for Conexus, ensuring we continue to be the link between clients and candidates in the SAP, Data & Analytics, Software Engineering and Cyber Security fields.

James will also be working on legal, compliance and commercial matters, whilst collaborating with the Marketing Team to continue to grow Conexus’ online presence.

On joining the Conexus team, James has said:

“I couldn’t be joining the company at a better time. The agency is primed to begin its ambitious plans for rapid scale-up on top of the monumental growth already shown to date. The agency has been built around a strong foundation, with an excellent team of recruiters, who are not only great at their jobs but have an excellent team culture to boot. I’m looking forward to working with the sales team to help them achieve their career goals and to nurture the next generation of recruiters who join us, along with a structured L&D programme.

The technology in place is the most impressive I’ve seen in any business to date and is a great platform for us to build upon as we aim to streamline processes not only for our internal team but most importantly for our clients in an increasingly competitive labour market where speed is of the essence in both the client delivering their internal projects but also catching new potential employees at a time when they are in-market.

Having met with Dale, Connor, and the wider board of directors and witnessed their experience, drive & determination I knew I’d found a company that aligned with my own personality & goals. I’m excited to start on my journey to drive the company forward and reach its growth targets. Conexus really will be a global market leader and I look forward to playing a key role in achieving these aspirations”.

We’re currently recruiting for a commercially gifted, multi-talented, industry expert recruitment manager who can own the role of driving our international headcount growth. If this sounds like you, take a look at our Head of Talent & People vacancy here.
