Ben Moses works on the strategic growth and development of the Oliver James Group and will be overseeing and leading the team in Charlotte. In today’s blog, Ben provides an insight into what the North Carolina market can expect from OJ, and why Charlotte was the perfect location for OJ’s 12th global office.
Ben, why was Charlotte the next OJ destination?
As one of the up-and-coming hubs for multinational business across a diverse range of industry sectors, Charlotte is one of the honey pots for talent on the East Coast of the state. It is packed with some of the most talented professionals in North America and very much matches our current and target client base.
Charlotte is also benefiting from the ongoing trend of people moving out of the bigger cities, providing fantastic opportunities for career driven professionals in North Carolina.
What is OJ’s ambition in Charlotte?
Our ambition for Charlotte is the same as the rest of our North American business. We want to be the go-to company that people want to work for and with through maintaining the highest standards both internally and externally.
We want to continue partnering with the most exciting companies in the world which will not only allow us to attract the best talent on the market, but also the best talent to our business.
Although we are new to North Carolina, our focus will always be on what matters to you, working tirelessly to provide our clients with the best talent on the market and our candidates and employees with the best opportunities.
What can clients in North Carolina expect from Oliver James?
As always, our clients can expect a true business partnership with OJ. We will take the time to deeply understand your business, needs, and values, to ensure that we can really impact the talent attraction into your business, providing solutions that can match your exact business needs.
We also offer recruitment outsourcing and project solutions to help clients evolve, grow, and connect with the most talented people in the market, helping them to meet tight project deadlines with efficient and flexible solutions.
What can candidates expect from Oliver James?
Whether you are actively seeking a new role or just keeping a close eye on the market, the team at OJ will always have honest and transparent conversations with you, operating with integrity at all times, and looking to work with you to meet not only your short-term needs, but also your long-term ambitions.
In the same way we work with our clients, we will always work in partnership with you, providing you with access to the best opportunities on the market, alongside a market-leading service, so you can fulfil your career potential.
Which markets will the team serve?

What are you most excited about?
For anyone working at OJ, the growth of our US offering provides a massive opportunity as there will be a huge amount of growth and more leadership positions available.
