James Crawford
Manager - Design & Branding freelance


What did you do before working at Major Players?

I worked for a start-up PR agency that specialised in luxury travel. I also ran my own clothing brand on the side!

How long have you been working at Major Players for? What position did you start at when you joined?

I joined Major Players just over four years ago as a Resourcer. I had no previous recruitment experience and actually came to Major Players looking for a job in advertising.


What are your favourite roles to manage?

I enjoy working with senior designers / creatives the most. They are really interesting to chat to and have worked on some amazing briefs for huge brands who I feel really passionately about. One of my favourite meetings was with an ex- creative director of NIKE who created the “to be a Londoner” campaign.


What do you like doing outside of work – hobbies, interests, sports etc.?

My life outside of work is fairly cliché – a mixture of gym, playing in a 6aside football league and the lifelong curse of being a Spurs fan means I spend most weekends watching Tottenham inevitably underperform.


Favourite part of working at MP?

My favourite thing about working at Major Players has to be the people. Everyone is very good at what they do and there is a lot of collaboration which is unusual for a recruitment agency!
