James Para

Managing Director

Who I am:

My journey at Thatchers began when I joined as a young recruiter all the way back in 2006. By the end of my first year, I’d built a bit of a reputation within the secure tech space. 2009 is when things really took off and we incorporated Thatcher MCS as a stand-alone business. Today, I am Managing Director and thrilled with how much we have developed as a business over the past years. Being heavily involved with the technological recruitment industry for several years, I am passionate about how the difference our volume hiring projects have contributed to the Secure Government space. 

What I do:

With our considerable market expertise and significant understanding of the secure technology sector, including the DevOps, Cyber and Software hiring markets, I oversee several highly specialised teams across the entirety of Thatcher MCS. I endeavour to ensure that we take on new challenges, accomplish our goals and ultimately, forge professional relationships and a quality, bespoke recruitment service to our wide breadth of clients and candidates.

More recently I have been involved with creating a more commercial service line (Applied Technologies) focussing on distruptive technology organisations in my home town of Bristol.

If you are interested in engaging with us, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with either myself or one of our experts here at Thatcher MCS.
