  • “I had the pleasure of working with James while he was at the Identity and Passport Service. Amongst other things, I worked with James on a project to produce a detailed suite of legal agreements and procurement documents. James delivered a successful project making good use of his strong project management skills. He showed a detailed understanding of the commercial and key legal aspects of the various agreements we produced. James thoroughly commits himself to the projects he gets involved in and has considerable experience of public sector procurement. I would recommend him to anyone looking for a tried and tested individual.”

  • “James is an exceptionally intelligent man who quickly assimilates the necessary information from the user to understand the requirements of a project. He impressed me with the ease at which he grasped the technical intricacy of the product and was able to formulate reasoned arguments to ensure that the supplier was left in doubt as to our best value requirements. A pleasure to work with I would happily work with him again.”

One such project was to provide a complete suite of Standard Contract documents to update the existing to which he added all the support documents necessary for staff to use with them and informative user guides. These are still in use. Another project was to produce all the internal and external documents for a service contract that proved invaluable in the efficient processing of the seperate elements of the service. I would have no hesitation in working with James again and recommend him to any future employer.”
