To succeed here, you need to be competitive, urgent, influential, positive, impactful and informed, with the go-getting attitude that sets OJ recruiters apart from the rest. It’s essential you showcase these six key traits that signify the Oliver James DNA…


You’re ambitious, with the desire to win and an appetite for smashing targets.


You have energy, and the unsinkable drive to do well from day one.


You’ll be confident selling consultatively and negotiating through strong relationships.


You’re a fun-loving spirit with a natural passion and enthusiasm for the job.


Your credibility in the market knows no bounds – and neither does your best-in-class advice.


You are inspired by knowledge, self-improvement and understanding of the market.
