Having worked with Walter James Solutions I understand why they are a preferred recruitment partner. Prompt action and follow up while remaining respectful, combined with a good understanding of the needs on both sides was evident throughout.

VP Site Director | GSK

I've worked with many recruiters but I found Walter James Solutions to be the most open and honest of them all, They were excellent communicators who always kept me informed at all times. They also have a good knowledge of the pharmaceutical industry and are very professional in their approach but in a very relaxed manner.

Their organised and open approach allows a clear perception of opportunities and gaps and facilitates deep understanding and alignment throughout the interviewing process.
