James Cunningham



After achieving his BSc (Hons) Chemistry at Aberdeen University, James began work at the heart of the semiconductor industry as a process engineer for Mitel who became Zarlink, then X-FAB UK Ltd (nowadays Plessey). Prior to leaving James had become a project manager with responsibility internally for all new customer prototypes. Establishing customer relationships, handling timescale negotiations and an understanding of the peculiarities of different industry verticals have equipped him with a true understanding of the challenges faced by both his clients and candidates. Since joining in 2008 James is now establishing a team responsible for hiring Sales and Marketing professionals specifically within the semiconductor and electronics component community in Europe and the US, where he supports the majority of OEM’s and distribution companies in his industry.

In his spare time, James is usually found dressed in rubber chasing fish about in a river or, if especially lucky, he can ditch the waders and chase after more exotic species in Florida or the Caribbean. But to balance the programme, and equip him with a decent level of ‘pub-chat’, he’s a true fan of Bath and England rugby where he has proven a direct correlation between Guinness consumption and his knowledge of the game.
