Jenna Mack, Talent Acquisition Advisor - ICT & Digital @ Woolworths:
"I used James and TheDriveGroup often during my time at Woolworths Group. One of the best agency recruiters I've ever dealt with. James is honest, transparent and represented our brand and the role to candidates extremely well. With so many recruiters in the IT & Digital space around these days - I would HIGHLY recommend James and team - they are true experts in their field and provide a high level of market knowledge / insight. James is an absolute pleasure to deal with - ethical, not pushy and very fair from a cost perspective."

He is responsive to questions and we are very satisfied with how James and his team has worked with us to help us fulfil our recruitment needs."
Matt Hosking - Digital Tech Lead @ Alinta Energy:
"James has proven countless times to be an incredible asset to our hiring. He has a great eye for talent, but more importantly, a great sense for who will fit well in our team and culture. Even more impressive that we were hiring for Melbourne while he worked from Sydney, but provided quality candidates each time. Highly recommend James if you're looking to build a team that gels well and can get the job done."
