Ben James CEO Hunter Healthcare

Ben is a Co-Founder of Hunter Healthcare and leads an exceptional team, a team that offers considerable experience within healthcare recruitment across executive search, permanent and interim management.

Ben began his career with a global recruitment company before refining his trade at a niche executive search firm in the West End. In the early days of Hunter Healthcare, Ben became a leading figure within executive interim management in the NHS. Working closely with hospital leadership teams up and down the country, supporting them on their business-critical senior hires. Now in his role as Chief Executive, Ben is focused on supporting the ever-growing team at Hunter and ensuring our strategy is relevant and pre-emptive to market changes, our standards protected and leading on our continued growth and expansion into new healthcare niches and geographies.

“I was always ambitious and it didn’t take long to see the opportunity in healthcare recruitment, the market was saturated with firms that transacted via a sales call and a bum on a seat rather than showing any real interest in the long-term relationship with the individual or the organisation. Hunter was founded with a simple vision of building a business that would become a genuine partner to the NHS, putting relationships and candidate diligence at the forefront of its business practices. As we approach a near decade in operation, I’m immensely proud of who Hunter is and what we’ve achieved, not only becoming the market leader in our field but protecting the very culture and values that have facilitated our exceptional growth to date. We now have a global ambition to become the healthcare partner of choice and I’m excited to lead the business through the next period of our growth.”
