UK’s number one choice

After selling Alexander Mann, James launched Hamilton Bradshaw to be the leading investor in UK recruitment businesses.

After almost 15 years, HB has become the UK’s number one choice of investor in recruitment. As a result, they are one of the world’s fastest growing recruitment companies with over 550 staff and a portfolio turnover in excess of £150 million.
