about us

Withfrontier is a recruitment consultancy with a simple USP: prior to starting the company, I spent 12 years working as a hands-on SEO and performance marketer, so I know the industry inside out.

 During my time in the sector, I found my passion for sourcing digital talent and assembling award-winning teams. Now I am putting my years of experience to good use, focusing 100% of my time and energy into matchmaking high-growth agencies and brands with top-tier talent.


More than a recruiter:
a career confidant.

I am James, Founder of


As a seasoned performance marketer myself, having occupied a range of in-house and agency roles from content strategy to technical SEO and creative off-page, I specialise in recruitment for performance marketing and ecommerce roles.

Helping 250 people to find roles since launch.

My carefully cultivated, extensive network of close contacts can be leveraged for clients looking for the best marketers, and for candidates who are in search of new roles. My hands-on experience as a performance marketer also gives me an intricate understanding of every role, meaning I only deliver the very best and most suitable candidates, and only ever engage marketers with relevant roles.
