James Barrett, Director

James Barrett

My role at Michael Page is Operating Director, responsible for driving the ongoing growth and development of our Technology business across the South of England. I have been working with Michael Page since 2006, when I joined our Management Consultancy business in London, and have since been lucky enough to experience launching regional businesses and working across a number of office locations. Prior to joining Michael Page as a Consultant, I spent three-and-a-half years in Financial Services, first as a graduate at a French bank before moving into Financial Advice.
I launched Michael Page Technology’s first regional office outside the South East in 2010, when we opened the Manchester business, with great results. Following further successful launches in Birmingham and Bristol, we have established a quality-focused and service-led proposition for local employers and candidates alike. 
In 2015, I returned to London to drive forward our four core verticals of Business Solutions, Business Intelligence, Development and Infrastructure. My passion for this job stems from being able to meet with interesting and dynamic people who are striving to improve either themselves, their organisation or, ideally, both!
Outside of the office I have a young family and, when time allows, I enjoy following a conflicting mix of sports teams – West Bromwich Albion, Gloucester RFC and Worcestershire Cricket Club. My other passion is cooking, with my personal highlight being the opportunity to cook (albeit briefly) in Gordon Ramsay’s restaurant, Claridge’s.
